“Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.”
I respect the uniqueness of each individual and have worked hard in upgrading my education on a continual basis in order to ensure you receive the best care.
I received my Masters in Counselling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Vancouver, BC. I am currently a member in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. The modalities I use in therapy are
* Narrative Therapy,
* Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
* Adlerian Therapy,
* Cognitive Behaviour Therapy,
* Clinical Hypnosis,
* Emotional Freedom Technique &
* Solution Focused Therapy.
I am a trained facilitator of psycho-educational groups and hold workshops on a regular basis on the topics of grief, depression, and anxiety for companies and private functions. I am a professional speaker with over 25 years of experience in public speaking on many topics including self esteem, happiness, marriage and developing more positive relationships.
I believe that the counselling process & experience should be one that is non-judgemental & non-shaming. It means having an authentic relationship with someone who encourages & empowers you so that change can occur. I believe in asking questions that will generate movement & help you see things in a different light.
“I would highly recommend Tabasom. She is an extremely compassionate person who cares deeply about her clients. I feel so truly valued as an individual whenever I see her. She has used a technique with me that has had amazing success. This technique is called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I have had a number of issues that have held my recovery back. Through the use of EMDR, Tabasolm was able to help me work through those negative memories to the point where they have become no longer negative but livable. I am now taking charge of my life moving forward in the direction I would have loved to have done many years ago. She is an incredible person who has helped me tremendously!” – Barb S. Maple Ridge, Canada

“Anger & anxiety was ruining my life, and now I have such a better relationship with my wife and children. Counselling has helped me regain control of my life and my emotions, and taught me simple techniques that help me cope with my day to day stress.” – Michael L.
