Mission Statement/Therapeutic Approach
Given there are a wealth of highly qualified therapists, Psychologists and counsellors in the Greater Vancouver area to choose from, why choose Nexus Counselling Services?
To answer that question, let’s begin with a definition -
A, ‘Nexus’ can be defined as:
• A connection or a series of connections linking two or more people, things or events
• The centre of focus
• The focal point of a set of ideas
• A relationship or series of relationships within a particular situation
All definitions considered, a NEXUS is a central link or connection. If you happen to be at the nexus of something, you are right in the middle of it.
At Nexus Counselling Services, I recognize that being in the nexus of something often means you are right in the middle of it. Too often however, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the multitude of things coming at you. At Nexus, I will work with you within the context of a nonjudgmental, collaborative and healing therapeutic relationship to parse out and clearly see the interwoven links and connections that contribute to how you experience, perceive and interpret life’s challenges, difficulties and obstacles. By understanding these links and connections, we can separate what is important to you and focus on your goal(s) for therapy with the intended outcome of improving your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
OK, so how does Candace work within the backdrop of a client’s ‘Nexus’?
My approach to counselling is deeply rooted in an off-shoot of Feminism, Relational-Cultural Therapy. As a Relational-Cultural therapist, I believe that clients hold the ‘key’ and, ultimately, know what is best for them.
By identifying the changes, you would like to make and understanding the myriad of factors that weave together to form the fabric of your life, you and I can work together and better identify what is not working, and, how to implement changes in a way that best works for you.
