Tamara Nesbitt - Counsellor

Tamara holds a Masters in Clinical counselling and maintains professional registration with both the BC College of Social Workers and the Canadian Psychological Association.

Her practical counselling experience includes working with individuals, couples and families with life transitions, grief & loss, addictions, depression and anxiety.

Tamara’s personal practice of mindfulness meditation and the study of Buddhist psychology informs her practice in a client centered approach.  The focus of therapy is to help individuals connect and appreciate their own inherent wisdom and strengths which in turn offers them a greater ability to make the changes and choices they desire from a place of balance and freedom, rather than fear.  Her practical and down to earth approach offers a safe and supportive approach to wellness.

Tamara leads community programs such as mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy for the treatment of Depression and Anxiety.

Tamara is married and has a blended family of four children.

Office Experience

You are invited to relax in the comfort of an intimate office atmosphere. We never provide our client's names or id's to their employers and we aim never to schedule back to back appointments so you can discreetly arrive and leave in private. We know that trust and comfort are two very special requirements of counselling.

We aspire to provide our clients with a consistent counselling experience to help you feel safe and open to share your concerns. Our goal is to help lessen your anxiety, bring some relief and peace to your life and ultimately help you feel better and stronger emotionally, mentally and physically.
