Expect to Be Genuinely Understood and Valued

Expect to Be Challenged to Move Toward Your Goals and to Make Positive Changes

Here is How we Help

When you call our Vancouver office, you will speak to one of the counsellors at the Tapestry Counselling Centre.  We will invite you to set up a free ½ hour consultation to come in to meet us, to discuss what brings you into counselling, to answer your questions about how we work and to ensure that we are a good fit for you.

If you know that you would rather get started right away, you are welcome to simply set up a 1-hour appointment for your first session.  In this session, we will ask you what you hope to get out of counselling and together we will create goals to make your hopes a reality.

In each counselling session:

  • You will be able to tell your story, to be heard and understood.
  • You will have the themes and patterns in your story revealed.
  • You will have your strengths highlighted and used to tackle your challenges.
  • You will sometimes be given “homework” between sessions – ideas to think or write about, or actions to try out.  We do this to facilitate positive changes, healing, and growth in your life.
  • We will be curious, honest and gentle with you.

You Can Look Forward to Gaining Many Benefits from Counselling

 The benefits of counselling include:

  • Healing and growth
  • Positive change
  • Insight and clarity
  • Practical solutions
  • Education and information
  • Acceptance and support
  • Healthier relationships
  • Peace of mind

There are also some risks that you should be aware of before you begin a counseling process. Counselling sometimes requires that you be willing to examine difficult experiences in your life, to feel stronger-than-usual emotions, to bring about shifts in self-awareness, or to face challenging aspects of yourself.  It can be a difficult and uncomfortable process at times.  However, our aim is always for you to experience self-improvement, healing and positive change.

We Tailor Counselling Especially for You

There are several counselling models that we use at the Tapestry Counselling Centre.  We consider the “big picture” of your life when we work with you and choose methods that will be specifically meaningful and useful for you.  We tailor the process to your particular problems, needs, and goals.

These are the counselling theories and philosophies that we use:

  • Client Centered Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Emotion Focused Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Existential Therapy
  • Systems Therapy
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
  • Somatic Experiencing (body work)
