Couselling Vancouver


Regain Hope With Vancouver Counselling

Physical injuries are not the sole source of pain. Some times in order to feel our best we need more than a visit to a chiropractor or RMT. Emotional pain has a substantial power to reduce your quality of life. Various causes can impact your mental health or produce unwanted thought patterns. The counsellors and therapists at Backs in Action will investigate your concerns from a holistic point of view. Ultimately, our guidance could empower you to understand sources of distress and chart a new path forward.

Feeling hesitant about seeking out counselling services is normal. Talking about your concerns naturally stimulates a sense of vulnerability. You may think that you can push through the pain because you have always managed before. However, the past does not always write the future. Worries, traumatic events, or relationship breakdowns can have a cumulative effect until your mental strength gets worn down. A therapist can gently discuss upsetting issues with you. A new perspective could show you how to rebuild your inner strength and thrive again.

Conveniently located at the Broadway Tech Centre across the Renfrew Skytrain Station, our clinic serves the following areas:

  • Integrated Health Clinic Hastings-Sunrise
  • Integrated Health Clinic Burnaby
  • Integrated Health Clinic Renfrew Heights
  • Integrated Health Clinic Collingwood
  • Integrated Health Clinic North Burnaby
  • Integrated Health Clinic Vancouver

Our Approaches to Counselling in Vancouver

The professionals at Backs in Action have training in multiple techniques that have proven useful for many patients. Your therapist will suggest a method that appears most likely to succeed in your situation. For example, mindfulness and somatic therapies could teach you how to escape the feedback loop produced by your nervous system. When successful, this approach can give you the power to make new choices instead of reacting the same way over and over.

In other cases, Emotionally Focused Technique (EFT) could produce good outcomes. Such a therapy may allow you to recognize emotions, accept them, and then use the information in more positive ways.

For those struggling in the aftermath of a traumatic event, including serious motor vehicle accidents, a counsellor might recommend Observed Experiential Integration (OEI). This method seeks to integrate your brain hemispheres to ease difficulties related to processing emotions and senses.

In addition to an appointment with a counsellor, our patients can also benefit from our highly skilled team of multidisciplinary healthcare professionals:

Backs in Action Rehab and Wellness Centre is a multidisciplinary clinic that has an integrated approach to wellness. We even offer specialized services like intramuscular stimulation (IMS), dry needling, Active Release Technique (ART), vestibular rehabilitation therapy, cupping, electroacupuncture, facial acupuncture, compression hosiery, telehealth, and more!
