Are you struggling with the same old issues, over and over?


Is there a crisis or loss that is causing you distress?  
 
Are there difficulties with your relationships that you cannot seem to solve?  
 
These are some of the issues that I have helped client's with in the past. 
 

The Benefits of Our Work Together: 
  • I offer to form a partnership with you, to support you to achieve your goals, hope and dreams.  I want you to get to where you want to go.  
  • You will be treated with respect and dignity at all times.  There is no room for judgment in the counselling room, only compassion and understanding.    
  • You will feel "heard" and "seen" because I will listen with my heart and my mind so I can hear all of what you are saying.  Many people have told me I was the first person to "get it" when they told me their concerns.
  • We will work at a pace that feels comfortable to you.

Why Counselling:
 
Life can be challenging for all of us.  In those times it can be helpful to talk to someone who has experience in helping others with the same struggles.  To come for counselling shows you have courage and are committed to your future.  Therapy might involve looking at an issue from a different perspective or it might mean truly grieving a loss from the past.  We will gain a deeper understanding of the issue and look at skills that you might use to reach your goals in the future. 
 
About Marilyn Sundeen  M.C., R.C.C. 
 
My journey to become a Registered Clinical Counsellor is perhaps an unusual one.  I worked for the public service for many years but always felt a call to be more.  A mid-life crisis brought me to my knees and later, showed me where I needed to go.  
From that life experience and clinical training, I offer a deeply compassionate place to explore your experiences, your pain, your hopes, your fears.
I am committed to my own personal work as I am my on-going education and professional development.  I have training in and use a variety of approaches and skills and will tailor our work to your issue.  Generally, I try to look underneath the problem to identify some of the issues that created it.
