 A counsellor with experience and passion: My name is Kristie Brassard and I am the Psychotherapist & Social Worker behind Featherfree Counselling. I offer confidential, individual counselling to teens, adults and seniors and bring authenticity, compassion and many years of experience into the therapy room.
 A non-judgemental, calming space to share: People I support often say that my genuine nature and sense of humour helps them to feel comfortable to share with me. The atmosphere I create in therapy sessions is calming, relaxed, and non-judgemental.
 Supporting people who are struggling: I can support you as you learn to cope and heal with many concerns including: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stress, chronic pain, substance abuse, physical health issues, emotional regulation, low self-esteem, distress tolerance, lack of purpose & meaning, grief & loss, difficult life transitions, weight loss, smoking cessation, sexuality, relationship issues, assertiveness & communication, etc.
 Counselling can help: In the counselling session you can share your concerns in a confidential and non-judgemental space, work on developing and reaching personal and professional goals, challenge your thoughts and change unhelpful patterns, learn healthier coping skills and work towards being the best version of yourself.
Sessions are available: You can attend sessions in person or through video conferencing anywhere in Ontario. I am currently accepting new clients and try my best to accommodate your schedule.
 Evidence-based counselling interventions: Using different counselling modalities, like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and humanistic psychology, I will support you in healing symptoms of depression, anxiety, chronic stress, and low self-esteem, etc. I am also passionate about helping clients make difficult lifestyle changes and work through distressing life transitions.
 You deserve compassion and support: Our busy schedules, financial stressors, competing priorities or fear of the unknown (or all of the above!) can often get in the way of us taking care of ourselves. We often put others' needs first and forget to nurture our own. So this is just a gentle reminder that your needs are important too. We all deserve a little compassion and support in this life.
 Paying for counselling: Sessions are $120.00 and you can pay with cheque, cash, credit card or e-transfer. Sliding scale is available to those in financial need, so please connect to inquire. My services are covered by some insurance companies too, so please check with your benefits provider.
