Values are what guide us through our days. They also help choose the appropriate course of action when faced with challenging situations or stressors. Our values support how we feel and what we do and speak to the type of workplace we wish to create here at Virtuous Circle Counselling. Everyone has different values but a common value that attracts people to this industry is kindness.
Virtuous Circle Counselling supports diverse communities to foster inclusivity and acceptance. Each of our stories and experiences have shaped us in a variety of ways. We will work hard to provide you with a safe and compassionate environment to sort through your issues and we will provide the practical tools necessary for you to take back to your daily life and relationships.
Counselling is extremely important. It is a means to direct positive changes in one’s life as it relates to coping with emotions, relationships or other significant life areas. Upholding the belief that people need guidance to assist them in finding solutions and moving forward, we believe that counselling should be recognized as a form of prevention. Through therapy, one can confront and heal from past wounds, attitudes and behaviours. Addressing one’s hardships and finding solutions is empowering because it contributes to greater self-awareness and personal responsibility.
The counselling services offered by Virtuous Circle Counselling provide an avenue for someone who is feeling overwhelmed or needing direction to immediately begin to regain a sense of control. Understanding that life is often stressful, confusing and scary regardless of how many opportunities we have. Our mission is about enhancing people’s overall lives and helping them move toward their vision and goals in the areas of education, career, family and relationships.
We understand that some individuals, couples, and families experience life challenges and circumstances that interfere with their ability to gain a sense of wellbeing. Together, we work towards creating an environment in which one can learn how to gain a sense of balance and stability as well as find greater meaning when facing life’s challenges.
