Clients

We’re here to help

On a daily basis, we negotiate relationships with others, with our surroundings, and with ourselves. Sometimes our ability to function and thrive within these dynamic relationships can become stressed and our relationships can become problematic.

ProChoices Therapy offers you support in the face of challenges like these and engages a therapeutic collaboration that cultivates possibility, choice, and preferred outcomes.

We do not ask for a doctor referral to use our counselling services. For more information, please email us with your contact info.

Inclusion Critera

Our Therapy Model

ProChoices offers a safe and non-judgmental space. Our work is closely aligned with Feminist Narrative ethics and worldview. This Feminist Narrative approach means therapists will be inquiring rather than assuming, and de-centering power through a collaborative relationship where the client is acknowledged as the expert of their own experience. We recognize that the person is not the problem, rather the problem is the problem, therefore all people are welcome.

Working with us

As a community learning clinic, we work with all problems excluding the following:

  • Active physical violence
  • Suicidal behaviour or active suicide ideation
  • Participating in aspects/having experiences that others are unable to witness, such as hallucinations and delusions

If you are experiencing any of the areas listed above, we encourage you to contact the Vancouver Crisis Line at 604 872 ¬3311 and/or your local emergency services.

 

Testimonials

Things have gotten so much better

“When I was in the worst place that I was, I didn’t have access to other options. I was incredibly grateful for the fact that something like this clinic existed. In my experience, when you are in a bad place, you are not in a place where you can afford $100 an hour for therapy.

I don’t think its coincidental that things have gotten so much better over the last two months, while I’ve been with ProChoices. I wouldn’t have been able to create this kind of momentum if I hadn’t gotten this help.”
