We provide therapeutic support, guidance, and psychoeducation to assist our clients develop personal insight and work towards making positive change in their overall lives.

We service all clients from the Lower Mainland of BC while being located in the Richmond-Vancouver community. We have worked with many service providers; from doctors, lawyers, and others, to ensure that our clients receive the treatment and care they need.

MindRight Counselling & Consulting primarily uses a Cognitive-Behavioral Approach in helping clients with their problems and concerns. However, our counsellors are trained in various therapeutic approaches to ensure the service that our clients receive is in line with their goals for counselling.

We want to ensure that you have the tools and interventions to cope and address the issues that you are dealing with presently, as well as being able to deal with any future concerns that may arise.

WHY COUNSELLING?

Simply put, the point of counselling is to feel better. You deal with stress on a daily basis. Stress can build up over time and many of us have a stress tolerance to deal with frustration and anger that result from both our professional and personal lives. Yet, every so often, there comes a point that we are not able to cope with everything that’s going on and we become overwhelmed. What was once easy to deal with become increasingly difficult.

Sometimes, we’re not aware that when we’re stressed out we experience pain in our bodies whether it’s in our neck, shoulders, or other parts. In addition, we may experience nausea, headaches, heartburn, and other somatic symptoms that may not necessarily be related to physical health ailments, but rather mental health ailments. Our bodies are equipped with warning signs to signal to us when we are not doing well.

PICTURE A TRAFFIC LIGHT…

When you are living life, you have the “Green Light” and you are full systems go. But, when you are dealing with feelings such as anger, anxiety, depression, or other similar emotions, the “Yellow Light” comes on and you are required to slow down and be cautious. This is the time where counselling can be very effective in creating awareness and insight to help people understand their triggers for stress and learn coping methods to help them through their problems and get back on track with their lives. However, those who try to simply put off dealing with their issues eventually end up encountering a “Red Light,” and all of the stress from work, family, school, and other activities may cause life to come to a screeching halt because the problem can no longer be ignored.

MindRight Counselling & Consulting can help you whether you are at the “Yellow Light” or “Red Light” stage.
