Mission, Values, and Approach
Our mission is to be a compassionate, client-centered space that delivers top-quality, trauma-informed counselling and wellness services to the Greater Fredericton area, and virtually all of New Brunswick and Ontario.
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 investing in continuing education in order to make sure our services are always up to date.
We value social justice and the equitable treatment of all individuals of all backgrounds. As counselling and health professionals we take our role as client advocates very seriously. We contribute to various charitable campaigns and events in our community and frequently advocate 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 strong, collaborative 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.
"Trauma-informed" means that we are aware of the many ways adverse or difficult life experiences can impact a person's wellness, personally and interpersonally, mind, body and spirit.
We operate under a broad definition of "trauma," whereby we understand that any life event from infanthood to adulthood can impact that way folks show up in the world.
We aim to create a therapeutic environment focused on the safety, trust, empowerment, transparency, and collaboration with every client.
Our expert therapists specialize in various therapeutic modalities such as psychodynamic therapy, internal family systems therapy, embodied recovery approaches, somatically integrated approaches, sensory-oriented approaches, polyvagal theory.
We have trauma therapists available to provide trauma-specific therapies such as:
Cognitive Processing Therapy
Accelerated Resolution Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (trauma-focused) for children
Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing Therapy (in training)
Trauma-Informed Yoga Integration
he therapeutic modality used depends entirely on the needs and goals of the client and the preferences of the individual therapist assigned.

We use an approach that recognizes how our biology, psychology, and social well-being are interconnected. We believe 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.
