Community Counselling is a FREE counselling program for residents of Langley and Aldergrove who are 16 years and older. All sessions are highly confidential and tailored to your needs.

Suzanne: I thought I was incapable of being a good parent. I was having more problems parenting and being a wife than anyone I knew. I felt like a failure and was ashamed, so I never told anyone how much I struggled. Stressed out I finally went to my doctor who suggested counselling and that’s where I found out how out of balance my life was. I gained insights into my struggles and the reasons around them, learned how to structure my life so I, and my family could finally get what we each need – at least some of the time. With this new awareness and a much more balanced life I feel happier and more confident and that is making me a better parent and wife.
Brian: I’ve always been that quiet, nervous person in the back of the room. Meeting people for the first time or trying something new has always been excruciating for me. I spent a great deal of my time imagining all sort of calamities and ways that things will go wrong. These thoughts kept me from sleeping, sometimes from eating, and, because I was desperate to be invisible, prevented me from enjoying life. Now, in counselling, I know what the problem is – anxiety. And I’m learning to balance out the anxiety with strategies to cope and I’m starting to enjoy my life.
