David Edwards, MA, RCC
David brings a genuine, warm, and compassionate presence to his work that is grounded in real-world experience and backed by evidence-based practice and modern neuroscience. He believes that life's struggles are made harder by the shutting down and ignoring of important parts of ourselves, and he is driven to see others reach their potential. Whether we are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or career concerns, we can often find understanding, peace, and clarity in reconnecting our heads with our bodies. Genuineness, confidence, compassion, and passion can only reenter our lives when we honour every part of ourselves.

David is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia. Not your typical clinical counsellor, David was originally trained as a Geoscientist and brings a wealth of life experience to his practice.

After his BSc degree he worked for several years in mining camps in Canada's north. He subsequently spent time navigating helicopters in support of mapping operations, and worked in the information technology and satellite imagery industries before realizing his passion for helping others and entering the counselling psychology world.
Our Approach
The therapists at Wellspring Counselling combine aspects of several psychotherapies including Cognitive-Behavioural, Psychodynamic, Experiential, Schema-Focused, Emotion-Focused, Person-Centred, and Mindfulness-Based.

What this means is that we help you to deal with the emotional baggage that has stuck with you so you can get on with your life. Dealing with the baggage often involves processing the underlying worries and beliefs that are at the core of your inner turmoil. This turmoil is what usually prevents people from having the happiness and peace of mind that they want.

The whole therapy process is accomplished through a compassionate, engaging, effective and safe therapeutic approach. Our approach is informed and guided by neuroscience and counselling research.
You will be guided in, but ultimately in charge of deciding what your values, goals, perspectives and potential are. You will be expertly supported in how to create these changes that you want in your self and life.

We have 3 convenient locations to choose from in Vancouver & Burnaby:
  • 708-1155 West Pender St., Vancouver, BC V6E 2P4
  • 300 - 3665 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5R 5W2
  • 501 - 3292 Production Way, Burnaby, BC V5A 4R4 

Your mental health is one of the most important things you can do for your happiness and satisfaction in life. Give us a call at (778) 800-1995 or connect with us through to begin your journey to greater happiness and health.
