Hello, I'm Elinor. Counselling has been an important part of my personal journey and it's an honour to work as a Registered Clinical Counsellor and support others as well.  I have worked in the fields of counselling, education and wellness for almost 20 years. Before Covid, I worked in play therapy with children and youth and neurofeedback for all ages, both of which I look forward to including again in my practice in the future. For now, it’s an honour to support my youth and adult clients ages 15 and up via secure video and telephone.
Drawing upon modalities including mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and somatic psychotherapy, I aim to be an ally through rough waters and turbulent times, through loss, trauma, change and transition. As a therapist, I support you to explore your thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and ideals, as you glean the wisdom from your experiences and move forward with greater responsibility and congruence in mind body and spirit.  I also provide guidance and training in skills for self regulation and reflection.
With degrees in both Psychology and Theology and currently pursuing certification in Spritual Care, I work from a faith-based/transpersonal/existential perspective to the degree that that suits you. In other words, we attend to the spiritual and meaning making dimensions of your journey, as well as the psychological and emotional. Comfortable counselling within a Christian, Eastern Philisophical or otherwise ‘spiritual’ perspective, I also have a dedicated portion of my practice designed to support survivors of near-death and spiritually transformative experiences. 
What is paramount in the therapeutic relationship is trust and safety.  My aim is to build a solid rapport with you, such that I meet you where you are with compassion and understanding, and without imposing my biases and viewpoints, gently support, challenge and guide you towards your own inner wisdom, strengths and positive choices.    
I currently work via video and phone and will soon open an in person office again.
I charge $140 plus GST.
