Emily Wilson-George MCP, CCC
For me, therapy is about connecting with my clients in a way that is meaningful and healing. I believe in the importance of providing a space where your experience is seen and heard—your struggles and your triumphs witnessed and acknowledged. As your counsellor I will be present, patient, curious, and compassionate. I am guided by an interest in existential therapy, which affirms that each person has an inherent capacity to choose how they live. I hope that you and I can work together, with support and collaboration, to help you make the most of the challenges and opportunities in your life.
Being in relationship with others is one of the most challenging and meaningful parts of being human. When I work with relationships, I facilitate and support communication that will promote safety and closeness so that you can feel attuned with one another. It is extremely important to me to help you develop patterns and strategies of relating that will be uniquely meaningful to each of you. I feel tremendously honoured to be able to help relationships grow so you can maintain strong, lasting connections.
I grew up on the Canadian prairie and am grateful every day that I am now able to live somewhere that stays green all year round. I spend as much time as possible exploring the forests of the lower mainland.
