Camilla Bjurling, Registered Clinical Counsellor

She is inspired by the uniqueness of each individual she meets as she has travelled extensively and worked with youth, young adults and adults in countries such as Thailand, Mexico and the U.S. as well as in Canada from Northern BC to Quebec. In her downtime you will find her catching up on Netflix, spending time with her family and walking her dog at the beach.
Chelsea Pilon, Registered Clinical Counsellor
Chelsie is a Registered Clinical Counsellor and has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and an Undergraduate degree in Communications. When meeting with clients, Chelsie’s top priority is to make sure they feel safe and supported. She believes that connection and safety create the foundation for healing and growth. Chelsie meets her client’s right where they are, empowers them to take control of their therapeutic journey, and supports them to make positive changes in their lives. Chelsie takes a trauma-informed and attachment-based approach to counselling. She understands that the root cause of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, and maladaptive behaviors often stem from histories of trauma. Chelsie also draws on emotion-focused and body-centered therapy to help her client’s access their emotions on a deeper level. She believes that the body holds a lot of knowledge, and by connecting with it we can develop a deeper sense of knowing, regain our personal power, and feel grounded and more confident in ourselves.

She takes a compassion approach to healing, and hopes that her client’s therapeutic journey will cultivate empowerment, growth, and positive change.
