Finding a Therapist in Calgary

Find A Therapist In Calgary For Individual Counselling

Everyone at some point will go through some sort of darkness in their lives? It may be the death of a family member or loved one, a breakup or losing a job. Our lives can be shaken up by unexpected events that really leave us questioning what’s going on and where we are headed. Although it’s normal to feel more stressed as time passes and responsibilities pile up, changes in your interest, energy level and personality could be a sign that something is wrong.

If you have been experiencing the below listed symptoms, it may be time for you to find a therapist in Calgary:


  • problems with eating or sleeping;
  • feeling hopeless, anxious or worthless;
  • feeling guilty;
  • increased use of alcohol/drugs;
  • decreased interest in activities you once enjoyed;
  • persistent physical symptoms, including headaches and stomach pains;
  • thoughts of suicide, or preoccupation with death;
  • extreme sensitivity to rejection;
  • inability to concentrate;
  • extreme irritability; or
  • frequent complaints from friends and family regarding your mood.

Understanding Where You Are Right Now

When we are struggling with life’s challenges sometimes we don’t cope well. We become desperate and seek answers, but they never seem to be within our grasp. The negativity, the inability to sleep, never knowing if you are good enough at your job, in your relationships or in life can cause major distress.

Sometimes, the hardest part about seeking therapy is understanding where you are right now and that you could use a little outside help. The search for a therapist or counsellor can be exhausting as there are many options, what credentials do they have, what’s their specialty? If you find yourself asking these questions then you are not alone.

Virtuous Circle Counselling in Calgary has an excellent track record of helping families and individuals work through some of the most difficult situations in their lives.  Each person is unique and so are their challenges but no matter your circumstances Virtuous Circle will work with you to determine a customized solution.

This is the realm of therapy—it can be hard to seek help, and harder to find the right therapist in Calgary. We all want someone who’ll look at our struggles and understand us, someone that will make things better, and most importantly, make us feel safe. A therapist is there to hold your darkest thoughts for you, so that you don’t have to live in them anymore.

Be Honest With Yourself About Your Happiness

Virtuous Circle offers psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. Through our work, we’ve established a pattern of care that focuses on the person behind the symptoms as well as the symptoms themselves. Our therapeutic approach is rooted in collaborative empiricism that values sense-making, experience, and meaning making (which encourages the evolution of how to approach problematic experiences).

Virtuous Circle Counselling strives to offer mental health support in Calgary by providing a safe and welcoming space for all. We help people explore how they experience their emotional and behavioural responses. We look at the impact that our thoughts, feelings, memories, and living in our bodies (kinaesthetic sense) have on us.
