Mission, Values, and Approach
Our mission is to be a compassionate, client-centered space that delivers top-quality counselling and wellness services to the Greater Fredericton area.
At Conscious Counselling and Wellness we value the inherent dignity and worth of all people and the diverse and unique experiences of every single one of our clients. We understand that many factors intersect to create the challenges our clients present to us. We honour the unique journey and voice of our clients in every way possible.
We value professionalism in all avenues of our practice from client interactions to ensuring we are always continuing our personal education and knowledge and operating based on the latest research in the mental health field.
We value social justice and the equitable treatment of all individuals of all backgrounds. As counselling professionals we take our role as client advocates very seriously while contributing to various charitable campaigns and events in our community as well as advocating within the social and healthcare fields based on our client's needs.
We value compassion and collaboration. We believe it is important to create a collaborative and strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist in order to best ensure success in counselling.
Client-Centered and Trauma-Informed
Our approach to counselling is compassionate, trauma-informed, and biopsychosocial/wholelistic. We see each client as a unique individual with unique needs based on a variety of contributing factors to whatever situation they are in.
We use elements from several therapeutic modalities such as CBT, DBT, MBCT, ACT etc.The therapeutic modality used depends entirely on the needs and goals of the client.
We believe that the client is the expert on their own life, but that it is the counsellor’s job to bring certain insights to light, or to guide clients into healthier practices and decisions.
We use an approach that recognizes how our biology, psychology, and social wellbeing are interconnected. We believe that in order to lead a meaningful and fulfilling life, one must work toward discovering a balance of wellness in the following realms: occupational, physical, social, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional.
A Note on Mindfulness, and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC)
We utilize mindfulness tools in order to allow clients to development the skills to observe and regulate their own thought patterns, bodily sensations, and impulses without judgment. Paired with the active practice of self-compassion, clients develop an awareness of the universality of their challenges and can work toward solutions filled with self-acceptance.
"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."
