Counsellors offer help with mental health issues via in-person sessions or online therapy. This can include couples counselling, family counselling, or therapy for depression.
I am Trish Scoular, a Registered Professional Counselor who specializes in Anxiety & Depression, since 2014. I develop a treatment plan that includes appropriate interventions and techniques that specifically address depression and for each of the anxiety disorders. It’s important to understand the root of anxiety and depression so we can treat it accordingly with proper medical necessity and appropriate treatment. My goal when working with clients is to help them find a clear path to reducing symptoms and function better on a day-to-day basis. We work together to address the many conditions that coexist with anxiety and depression, while developing a plan of action that meets the goals we establish together. My other training is in abuse, domestic violence, youth, family, community based counselling, addictions & recovery and couples (I am currently learning the Gottman method). I also work with clients who need transitional Life Coaching, which is focussed on helping you achieve your goals and dreams.

True Presence Counselling
The stress you experienced during your mom's pregnancy with you and during the birth can leave an imprint in you that lasts for your life time. For example, many people born through caesarean find that they have a hard time complete something. This "inability to complete" could show up in work or relationships. Re-birthing allows the client to re-experience their birth and change that experience.

Island Hellerwork and Counselling
Fascia and Trauma
I practice hellerwork structural integration. I help clients come back into alignement and regonize their patterns. We work with changing those patterns by working with the fascia as well as with thoughts, trauma and emotions. I also work with injury and scar tissue. I am also a certified somatic trauma therapist.
It is challenging being a human! Regardless of who you are, your religious views, your gender, your income—suffering, confusion and heartache are part of life. However, counselling can turn these difficulties into opportunities for growth, healing, and transformation.With a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology, I work as a Registered Clinical Counsellor. My approach to therapy is Holistic because, true well being occurs when body, heart, mind and spirit are integrated. I have a special interest in a holistic approach to depression and anxiety, and existential concerns.I am inspired to cultivate “unconditional positive regard” for my clients. Depending on the individual, and their situation, I draw on a array of techniques such as narrative, solution-focused, cognitive behavioural, somatic and mindful based therapies.Mindfulness informs my work. Rather than being lost in a story, we can pay attention to what is happening in the present moment. By slowing down and focusing on the here and now, a deeper level of truth arises. It’s exciting that the research on mindfulness and neuroscience is burgeoning. Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to rewire itself, indicates that change is possible on any level, at any age, under any conditions.Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a natural complement to mindfulness practice. While mindfulness cultivates a non-reactive awareness of thoughts and emotions, Cognitive behavioural therapy addresses the content of our thoughts. It is often, our distorted thinking that creates suffering. When we can change our thinking pattern, we change our perception of ourselves and the world.I am fascinated by the body and it’s inherent wisdom. I have been teaching Yoga since 2001. I am highly skilled at observing the body and what it is expressing. As a Yoga therapist I use simple yogic practices to help manage anxiety and stress. I’ve also been studying somatic work for years. Somatic work is extremely effective in dealing with trauma, regulating the nervous system and accessing other realms of deep knowing.I am also very passionate about Couples Counselling and the Emotionally Focused Therapy model developed by Sue Johnson. It’s very inspiring to work with couples as they let their guard down, show vulnerability and move closer to authentic connection.For individuals wishing to transition gender, I provide hormone readiness assessments.It’s important to choose a counsellor that you feel comfortable with and trust. I offer a free 30-minute initial consultation..
SALT SPRING ISLAND, BC
Mindful Self Discovery - Marcia Burton
Marcia Burton is a Certified Hakomi Practitioner and Senior Trainer. Marcia trained with, and continued to work closely with Ron Kurtz, creator of the Hakomi method until his death in 2011. She has taught in England, Ireland, USA and Canada. Marcia has an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Since 2000, she has used Hakomi to support individuals and families experiencing the effects of bereavement, trauma, stress-related illness, cancer, and challenges in relationship. She currently works for Island Health Authority as a counsellor for those experiencing mental health and substance use issues. She is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BCACC.She has had a mindfulness practice since 1994, which includes a combination of meditation, qi gong, Hakomi, and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). “One of the many things I love about Hakomi is that it provides a framework for me to extend mindfulness and compassion into my daily life, my relationships, and my work. Hakomi reminds me to be inspired by life, and to trust the wisdom in ourselves as living beings, being blessed with a natural inclination towards healing.”Marcia is a Trained Teacher of Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and is offering 8 week courses in MSC on Salt Spring Island, starting in September 2016. (Look on Home Page under “Mindful Self Compassion” for details.) MSC is an evidence-based model, developed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff. Marcia is delighted to have found another mindfulness-based method that is as gentle as Hakomi. Both use individual mindful practices and exercises in small/large groups. The main difference being the emphasis in MSC is on developing emotional resources rather than on self-study. MSC offers a beautiful set of practices to enhance one’s connection to self, to encourage motivation through kindness not criticism, and generally to shift our attention towards being nourished by life, and away from being hard on ourselves.Marcia brings a combination of gentleness, compassion, humour and playfulness to her work. She lives on Salt Spring Island, with her husband, Bob Milone. She enjoys kayaking, gardening, playing pickleball, and walking on the beach.
