2. EMDR + Art Therapy Sessions

Incorporate evidence-based, beyond the talk practices to deepen your inner work.

We are uninvited settlers occupying the stolen, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), Qayqayt, and kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) peoples. Our relationship with these lands dictates our commitment to understanding the ongoing impacts of colonization and decolonizing our practices in and out of the counselling room.

You Deserve Support,

Let's Get Started. 

Multidisciplinary, holistic, and evidence-based practices to support your wellness. Currently available in Vancouver + Burnaby.

3. Nature-Based + Somatic Therapy

Multidisciplinary, Justice-Oriented.

Not your average therapy space.

Venturous Counselling + Consulting is a purpose-led wellness group built on two fundamental pillars: multidisciplinary practice and justice-oriented action.

Bringing community back.

You are multidimensional and complex. So our services are too. All our practitioners incorporate beyond-the-talk practices so you can access
your full capacity for growth + healing.

Not only do we work as a cohesive team to support you in your wellness journey; we also believe in communities' innate capacity for healing. 

When you access support with us, you're joining in on something bigger. Our strategic vision directs resources back into the organizing efforts of marginalized and targeted populations. 

It's fundamental to our work, not an afterthought.

Whether you're looking to work through difficult emotions, cultivate more fulfilling relationships, or build your self-worth, we've got you covered.  

You, Contextualized. 

You exist in context, so it only makes sense that the problems you experience do too. Unfortunately, society commonly disregards this context and places the issue solely within you. But isn't life already hard enough? Do you really need to take on MORE blame and shame for things that are not yours to carry?

All our practitioners approach our work through a systemic lens. We don't shy away from the systemic realities that impact your experience and we actively commit ourselves to unlearning its problematic narratives and practices right alongside you. We work with you to discover what it means to be "well" in a world that is so unwell.

Whether you access counselling in Vancouver, virtual counselling in Coquitlam, or In-Person Nature Therapy or Walk and Talk counselling in Vancouver or Burnaby, we’re committed to co-creating transformative spaces for difficult emotions, generative conversation + action-based solidarity. Because your humanness isn't a problem to be solved.

We've got Virtual Counselling in Vancouver + Virtual Counselling in Coquitlam...or anywhere in BC!

At Venturous Counselling + Consulting, we believe wellness is a dynamic and collaborative practice - there’s no one size fits all, and there’s no going at it alone.

You are complex, so our services are too. Working from a mind-body-community approach, our counsellors in Vancouver, counsellors in Burnaby, and counsellors in Coquitlam, all incorporate multidisciplinary practices into their work and collaborate as a cohesive team to support you in accessing your full capacity for growth. You don't have to do this alone. Let's figure it out, together.

The efficacy of virtual counselling services has been proven by several research studies to be just as effective as in-person sessions. Virtual counselling works very similarly to in-person counselling, except no travel time is required. To prepare for your virtual counselling sessions, make sure your device is charged, that you have access to the internet, and that you are in a quiet, secured place where you won't be interrupted. Clients who prefer integrating art into our work also tend to have their favorite art supplies nearby. We offer virtual counselling all across BC, including counselling in Vancouver and counselling in Coquitlam. For in-person sessions, we offer nature-based therapy, walk and talk sessions, as well as in-office individual and relationship sessions. 

Co-creating sustainable wellness, together.

Collaborative and non-judgemental counselling for all relationships, including romantic partners, friendships and family members.

5. Clinical Supervision + Consulting
