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.

Hello :)
My name is IdaNicole, I am a Registered Professional Counselor, mother to 2 adults and a gramma to 3 littles with a third one on the way. I struggled with my own relationship with sex, confidence and with healthy relationships in general. I struggled with what was going on inside me and how to have a healthy intimate relationship after sexual abuse.

I started working in pre and postnatal outreach, parenting, as well as anxiety and couples relationship work. I noticed that no matter what area I was in, your relationship with sex and sexuality can provide insights into every aspect of your life; nothing is more intimate and private; it can affect every part of us and our lives - in or out of a relationship. Do you have questions about sex, sexuality, lifestyles, how to improve intimacy, your physical relationship or are you not sure if you're in the right place even? I am happy to discuss any and all questions you may have.

I book an initial consultation which is free of charge - it is to discuss what you are hoping to get support with, get to know each other a little and decide what next steps you would like to take and is approximately 30 minutes long. Regular appointments are approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Longer sessions can be booked as well as evening and weekend appointments can also be arranged. My schedule varies each week so please do not go by the hours listed.

I use more than one style of therapy and tailor that to each individual. I look forward to meeting you and seeing how I can best support you :)
