Online clinical counselling on Quadra Island, BC

clinical counselling and therapy with an integrative approach

specialising in anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, & grief

serving Quadra Island, Campbell River, Vancouver Island, BC

Welcome to Francis Laver Counselling. My counselling and therapy practice is located on Quadra Island, British Columbia. While I serve my local community, through an online platform I also support and work with clients in Campbell River, across Vancouver Island, and throughout BC.

Have your difficult emotions held you back and kept you stuck in life? Have your traumatic memories visited you like an intruder and made you feel unsafe and often afraid? Have you been disconnected from yourself and others so that you feel lonely, lost, and detached? Have you been struggling with your confusion and uncertainty while you question the meaning of your suffering and experiences?

Transition, trauma, conflict, loss, and grief are some of the many unavoidable human experiences. However, those experiences, without being acknowledged, witnessed and supported, would eventually define who we are and inform how we live our lives.

While you may be at a challenging point in your life journey, I recognise that trust is needed for you to honour your experiences, memories and emotions safely.

My role as your counsellor is to assist you through these periods of questioning and uncertainty.

“Where something becomes extremely difficult and unbearable,

there we also stand always already quite near its transformation.”

The Poet's Guide to Life, Rainer Maria Rilke

I respectfully acknowledge that I live and work within the unceded traditional territory of the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ people, the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum, Kwiakah, and Klahoose First Nations, and the traditional keepers of their land. As an uninvited guest, I thank them for their generosity in allowing me to share their land.
