Individual Counselling

Mental health has become a priority for many of us over the last few years. We hear about wellness and avoiding burn-out, as well as mood management and harmonious relationships. Self-awareness and self-help can go a long way, but at some point, when things get really difficult, the books, podcasts, and inspirational quotes stop helping. 
 
Therapy is for people who are feeling stuck and ready for meaningful change. If you are facing something you can't solve alone, our professional counsellors can help. Whether the issues are personal, professional, relational, or spiritual, we have therapists with various backgrounds who customize their approach for each client. We also incorporate your cultural values and spiritual beliefs into therapy so you can feel, heal, and grow with grace.

 

Why Work with Us?

At Dragonfly Wellness Centre, we have two streams of therapy: addressing illness and promoting wellness.

Addressing illness is the traditional approach to therapy where someone seeks out a counsellor because they are facing a complicated life issue or suffering from a mental health crisis. People come to counselling when everything they have tried isn't working, and they need another perspective to solve the problems they are facing. The addressing illness approach is helpful for people in relationship crisis, experiencing depression, anxiety, or another mental health condition, or at a critical crossroads or transition point and feel like they don't know what to do next. In addressing illness, we explore where the problems came from, why they are still here, and what we can do to resolve them. 

Promoting wellness is the second stream of counselling at our Centre. Here, we are working with people who are generally high-functioning and are interested in staying well, increasing their productivity, taking their relationships to the next level of honesty and closeness, and living a life of passion and purpose. We offer this type of approach to entrepreneurs, parents, out-of-the-box thinkers, artists, and high-achievers. Many of our clients who are interested in promoting wellness become members of Dragonfly Academy.

When you choose us as your mental health professionals, you get the best combination of training, heart, hope, and science.

What Do We Offer?

We don't want you to just get better, for now, we want transformation. We want you to get to a point where you don't need us anymore because you have uncovered your own inner compass. We want you well for the long term.

We help you identify your challenges, and look deeper into root causes so not only are you making plans for the future, but you are also healing pain from your past. 

We teach you about your brain and how to manage moods and thoughts so you can craft the life you want and get out of "survival mode".

We help you address and change habits and patterns for lasting change. 

We teach you about family dynamics and share the secret keys to long-term fulfillment in personal and professional relationships. 
We help you explore and deepen your spiritual life, including developing your mindfulness, presence, and relationship to your Highest Self.

Our therapists have training in a variety of areas, including anxiety and depression, burn-out, chronic pain, Autism, family harmony, single-parenting, men's issues, relationship issues, addictions and recovery, LGBTQ2+ issues, spirituality, children and youth, mindfulness, and anger management.

Once you decide to work with us, you will book an initial consultation with the therapist you feel would be the best fit. That person will then call you at the scheduled time for a mutual interview to see if you both feel it would be a good working relationship.

If you feel it's a good fit, you will then book the first session. You will be emailed a consent form and initial self-report for you to complete before your first session. Be sure to double-check which location your therapist is practicing from, or if it is an online session. If you are meeting in person, please arrive a few minutes early so you can ensure you will get the maximum benefit in your session. If you are meeting online, you will receive a link to your confidential meeting room before your session. You and your therapist will decide near the end of each session what the home practice is going to be for the coming week.

If something is unclear, you feel you are not moving forward, or there is something else that makes you uncomfortable in therapy, please tell your therapist! While we are really good at what we do, we are not mind-readers and need you to openly communicate with us so we can collaboratively craft a plan to get to your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

For lasting change, you will see your therapist for a minimum of 6-10 sessions. Anything less than this does not allow enough time for lasting changes in the brain. You will work with your therapist to track progress and manage any set-backs, and to develop a schedule of sessions that makes sense for your particular mental health needs. Most people engage in therapy for a set number of sessions (usually between 10-20) and then come in for a tune-up session as needed. A few people prefer to have a long-term relationship with their therapist, where they have an initial period of intense personal work followed by a monthly session as they work through the calendar year.

Counselling sessions range from $125 to $275 + GST per session, depending on who you decide to work with. The range in rate depends on academic training and years of experience for each practitioner. Many insurance companies fully or partially reimburse for mental health support. 
You will have to check with your insurance provider to see if your particular counsellor is covered by your plan. During your initial consultation, be sure to ask your counsellor if they belong to a professional association that may be covered. You will be provided with a receipt to submit to your provider for reimbursement as we do not offer direct billing.  (Some counsellors in our practice offer a sliding scale for those in financial hardship.)

 

In our practice, we believe in personal readiness and environmental synchronicity. If you have found us at this time in your journey, it is because you are ready to do the difficult work for personal transformation. You will know within the first session if your therapist is the right match for you, and if they are not, we will help match you with someone else, either within or outside our practice. Counselling works when you click with your counsellor, are honest about what you need in sessions, and do the required work in between sessions to make the neurological and interpersonal changes required for your best life. It works if you work it and if you are sincerely ready for change.
