Counsellor Directory

This innovative membership service serves to promote business information about your counselling practice, specialized services and skills as well as the ability to upload a profile picture and business logo. With futurist trends heading towards a generation that seeks information online as well as a specific set of skills, knowledge and experience, the CPCA believes this directory will provide a competitive edge for marketing our member's counselling services across Canada to the public, insurance providers, EAP contractors and government for verification of your legitimacy. All members who are in "good standing" will be approved to list their contact information in the directory on an annual basis. It allows our members to login to their directory listing once it has been approved and make any changes to their contact information.

In many ways we are living in the most disruptive, fierce, yet powerful times in history. Our world holds a delicate balance of all things, as we face the challenges of life circumstances, trauma, cultural responsiveness, identity, loss, effects of internet, grief, injustice, health, wellness and more. It is a time to understand, accept differences and become brave enough to honor and own our personal narratives. But, this is the process and before we get there, we have to work.

What are your deepest wishes? Do you feel seen? I support my clients to find and tell their life stories, even if only to themselves. Every bump, every moment is powerful in the lived experience of the overall journey, and there is not just one way to “arrive” or “become” what you are meant to be. It is a privilege to be part of the process that supports others to unlock their inner selves and see that magic come to fruition.
