It will help to give your Counsellor a good sense of why you are coming to counselling in this moment.

It is an opportunity to report what’s most important to you, and to give Nightingale Counsellors an opportunity to begin with what’s most present to you.

About 90% of first sessions at Nightingale are a success, and the client and Counsellor decide to continue working together. But we know that no single Counsellor can be all things to all people.

That’s why we offer all of our clients the opportunity to give our Intake Team feedback on their Introductory consultation, and to be matched with another Counsellor at no cost.

    We commonly help people with:

    Depression

    Millions of Canadians are currently, or at risk, of experiencing depression and the pandemic has not helped. Counselling provides evidence-backed support and opportunities for healing for everyone with depression: from those who are wondering if they might be experiencing depression, to folks with diagnoses and medicinal strategies in place.

    Anxiety

    Anxiety is perhaps the most common reason that individuals enter counselling therapy. Anxiety is a syndrome which includes physical sensations, cognitive patterns, and powerful emotions, and for some people can lead to experiences of panic. Counselling can help with learning how to manage these symptoms as well as healing root causes.

    Couples

    Relationship distress, or just the desire for improvement, comes in many forms. Couples counselling creates a profound space for intimate connection between partners. Decades of research has revealed that these deep conversations can repair conflict and have a lasting change on the quality of intimacy, commitment, and sex.

    ADHD

    ADHD remains under-recognized in Canada despite being highly treatable. It is associated with a variety of symptoms related to where we place our attention, how intensely (or not) and for how long (or short). Counselling can help learn to recognize the symptoms of ADHD, and also how to understand this experience and better manage it. Nightingale has helped many adults with undiagnosed ADHD find renewed order, clarity and functioning in their life.

    Anger

    Of all the difficult emotions, anger is perhaps the hardest. We are not taught how to master our anger in society, and both men and women are given messaging which can lead to angry feelings becoming shameful, guilt-inducing, or painfully suppressed. Frustration, anger, & rage are all important parts of human experience, and counselling therapy can help you confront the source of your anger, master the emotion, and learn to express it appropriately and safely.

    Family

    Family counselling is a powerful way to overcome conflict and negative patterns of interaction. It can also be a wonderful way for families to work together in overcoming challenges that effect everyone. So many of life’s transitions effect the entire family — graduation, divorce, illness, death — and processing, understanding, & healing together as a family can be an immensely powerful & rewarding experience.
