“It takes an ocean not to break”

-Matt Berninger

Located conveniently in Brentwood, Burnaby, B.C. next to local amenities and transit. I’m pleased to offer free consultations in person or over the phone to any potential clients who are considering counselling but may be on the fence.

Hi, I’m Stuart, a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) and psychotherapist. I work with individuals and couples from all walks of life who are experiencing emotional, psychological, or relationship issues that have left them feeling discouraged.

My practice is based around a collaborative, supportive, and unpretentious conversations that are aimed at reducing and resolving what makes you suffer. Clients are welcome to bring a wide range of issues—from the everyday troubles to complex difficulties that seem hopeless, provoke anxiety, or hold you back from a more joyful life. Mutual arising is about working together to analyze the pattern of our thoughts and actions that chain together, one after the other, that create our experience of existing and the suffering we endure.

Whatever difficulty you’re in, I am thrilled to bring my resources to aid you in your desire for greater happiness, freedom, and joy. I draw on years of experience in the helping profession, training in the fields of psychology and counselling, devotion to continuous learning, and my own personal development as a flawed person. I bring a range of traditional and modern therapy modalities to the conversation, drawing upon the big and small ideas which have shaped my practice and helped many people solve problems and live better lives. So don’t delay, let’s get to work on making your life better together!
