Welcome. My name is Aiden and I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with a focus on treating anxiety/panic and mood issues related to relationships, chronic stress, and trauma. I hold a Master's in Counselling Psychology from Adler University, a BA in Psychology from University of Alberta, and post-graduate training in psychological assessment from Concordia University of Edmonton. I am also a full member of the Canadian Psychological Association. While I was born and raised in New Zealand, I have called Canada (specifically Toronto, Edmonton, and now Vancouver) home for the past 15 years.
In my time as a counsellor and psychotherapist I have had the privilege of helping clients deal with a variety of issues including anxiety, panic, mood issues, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and physical/sexual/emotional abuse.
I draw on various evidence-based therapeutic perspectives in my work including Adlerian Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Existential Psychotherapy. I strongly believe in tailoring the therapeutic approach to you as a unique individual, as I recognize that "one size does not fit all."
As someone who has successfully overcome generalized and social anxiety myself, I truly understand the hardship of living with chronic stress and depression. This has helped me to work with clients from a genuine place of empathy, warmth, and kindness, as I am able to relate to being in the role of the client.
Please note that at the moment my availability to take on new clients is limited. As a result I try to save any openings for clients who are needing a skill set or approach I can provide that would be particularly beneficial to their needs. If after meeting for a consultation I believe that you may be equally or better served by one of my colleagues, I will transparently let you know, and provide you with a referral.
I look forward to meeting you. Cheers
