PLEASE NOTE: Cristina Ciccone is not accepting new clients at this time.
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Cristina Ciccone and I have been providing individual, group and relationship counselling services in Vancouver since the mid 1980's. In addition to maintaining a private practice, I have also worked in a number of different settings over the years, including hospital-based outpatient psychiatric clinics, community based programs for adults, adolescents and seniors, and have extensive experience within the field of Employee and Family Assistance providing short-term, solution focused therapy, as well as Critical Incident Stress Debriefings and Diffusing.
The many years spent working on a multidisciplinary team in a psychiatric outpatient clinic have prepared me to deal with a wide range of conditions, from crisis intervention to working with people who have more chronic, long standing difficulties.
I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, but also incorporate the principles of Client Centered Therapy, Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness into my clinical work.
I am bilingual and able to provide counselling services in Italian.
I have been approved to offer counselling through the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) in BC.
"Personal and interpersonal challenges, even crises, are an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and to expand our repertoire of responses to the world that surrounds us. The process of identifying and understanding our thoughts and feelings can bring new light to our circumstances. Being able to recognize our options is essential to making the healthiest choices."
