Hello! Thank you for looking at my page and seeing if we might be a good fit.
My name is Felicity (she/they). I am honoured to walk alongside clients with the support of Couch of Hope.
My counselling perspective is fundamentally rooted in anti-oppression. I believe that people are multistoried and complex, influenced by their various lived experiences and the dynamic social systems around them. I encourage my clients to develop their understanding of themselves by examining the narratives they use to define their individual experiences and their external environment.
I have been a part of the helping profession for over 10 years, including leading groups on outdoor expeditions, working with 2SLGBTQAI+ individuals and groups, addressing the mental health needs of cisgender men and the impacts of masculinity, and supporting complex-care mental health clients. I am currently completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University, and I previously obtained a Sociology and Gender Studies undergraduate degree from Dalhousie University.
I strive to be an accomplice with you as you bravely take on the challenge of counselling. Together, we will use trust, collaboration, and shared respect to build a genuine and meaningful therapeutic relationship. Key pillars of my work include unconditional positive regard, dependence on your personal values to shape the counselling process, and the belief that, with you as the expert in your life, we can foster a meaningful partnership to achieve your goals.
I am an uninvited settler on the land of the Mi’kmaq. I make efforts to decolonize my practice by acknowledging that counselling therapy is inherently constructed within colonialist systems and adapting practices to meet the needs of my clients.
