Grief Counselling

Everyone experiences and processes grief differently for a variety of reasons including family background, life experiences, intrinsic beliefs and personal values. In grief counselling our purpose is to help guide you through the complex sea of emotional, social, cognitive and physical responses to the pain and suffering that comes from a major loss in life. If you have experienced loss and you are ready to heal, please contact us to see how one of our counsellors can help you reclaim your life and empower yourself to live well.

Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are the most common reasons why individuals seek out a therapist. These two mental health issues impact everything about life, including relationships, job performance, and overall quality of life.

Characterized as mild, moderate, or severe, anxiety and depression are treatable. One may experience either separately or both at the same time. We know from research that not seeking treatment increases the probability of subsequent, and more serious episodes.

Sex Addiction & Intimacy Disorders

In a safe and confidential environment, Bill and Susannah-Joy work together to support those individuals struggling with problematic sexual behaviours. With compassion and skill, they offer help and hope to those seeking healing in, and from, relationship. Concurrently addressing sexual addictions and intimacy disorders, they utilize a trauma-informed, evidence-based process to help individuals rebuild relationship with themselves first,(Me, Myself, & I) and finally, with others. 

 

Bill specializes in men's issues and all that men may face in life. He helps his clients learn to live with transparency and to conquer negative thoughts, self-criticism, and anxiety about themselves and about intimate relationships. He also works with partners wounded and often traumatized by the acting out behaviours of sexual addiction. They require special care for healthy recovery of a sense of Self. Bill is compassionate and supportive in addressing the issues unique to the betrayed partner.

 

Susannah-Joy brings extensive experience as a trauma therapist to the work of supporting recovery from addiction, and to understanding the role early life experiences play in the development of intimacy disorders and addiction behaviours. Together they provide the expertise and support needed for individuals and couples looking for help and hope.

Trauma Recovery

Trauma is an overwhelming stress response to an abnormal event or experience. When that response is not processed effectively by the psyche, the resulting consequences impact all areas of the Self. This systems-wide impact includes cognitive, emotional, and physical symptoms.

When trauma is long term, such as happens in childhood; is common to the theatre of war; or includes multiple events, the subsequent degree of dysfunction has the potential to destroy quality of life and often relationships with it.

Mediation & Reconciliation

Bill helps clients with conflict management, supporting boundaries, recovery, and disclosure preparation while supporting a couples' strengths. Validating and knowledgeable, he skillfully holds space for the experience of recovery and rebuilding for both partners, and offers non-judgmental, compassionate, and experienced interventions for mediating and resolving the issues which have the potential to permanently fracture a relationship.

 

Couples Crisis Management

When crisis ~ of any flavour ~ threatens the stability and health of a relationship, the best thing a couple can do is ask for help. Instead of waiting until the crisis has fractured trust and intimacy beyond repair, seek support and skilled management to navigate the stress and distress present in such crises.

Supervision & Skill Development

William & Associates offers master classes, workshops, and skills’ practice on an ongoing basis throughout the year. 

Supervision for skills development, accountability, and governance in counselling, psychotherapy, and other mental health disciplines is critical component of competent clinical practice. Supervision is a not replacement for self-guided retrospective inspection, but instead adds to this personal discipline, incorporating external evaluation of the skills of practitioners.

Susannah-Joy, Carol, and Bill offer clinical supervision as part of the development and growth of new counsellors, and the governance and support of practicing clinicians. 

Skill development includes Master classes focus on a specific topic and are one hour long, always scheduled 12 – 1 PST. Workshops are offered throughout the year and include opportunity for skills development, experiential learning, and facilitated discussion.
