Are you overwhelmed with your emotional struggles? There is help available.

I know that too many people feel overwhelmed by life's challenges because of the results of various traumas in their past or present. I also know from my experience that when people work with professionals who can empathize with them without judgment, they can come up with solutions for their life-limiting issues. If you are one of the hurt persons please contact me.

About Me

I am passionate about providing affordable and exceptional service for all my clients.

My name is Susan Mathews. I have a Masters degree in Counselling and am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counsellors and Psychotherapy Association and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional by Evergreen Certifications.

I provide online counselling to individuals and couples. My special interests are teens and adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and relationship issues and couple counselling including premarital. Being an immigrant, I understand the struggles of immigrants. Being in Canada for 33 years, I understand Canadian culture as well. I believe I have the best of the two worlds experience.

I believe that the first step of approaching counselling is difficult and intimidating for anybody and I strive to provide nonjudgmental and empathic understanding. I believe in the strength of the individuals who come for counselling which can be channelled for success with a little bit of help from the counsellor. I do not discriminate against people on the basis of their background or lifestyle.

Counselling / Psychology / Mental Health

I graduated with an MA in counselling from The Providence Theological Seminary in the year 2022. I have been a facilitator of Prepare/Enrich premarital counselling tool since 2013. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist as well. I am passionate to provide affordable counselling to individuals and couples to heal from their past traumas and guide them to a fulfilling life. I use a trauma informed integrated approach with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Attachment-based Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). I use Prepare/Enrich and Gottman’s method for couple assessment and counselling. I believe that the connection between the therapist and the client is of utmost importance for the success of therapy and so offer an optional free 15 minutes consultation prior to booking sessions to determine if we are a right fit for each other.
