At Stillwater Counselling & Wellness, we strive to bring our core values of authenticity, collaboration, and vitality to our work.

We work together as a team to match your unique needs with our counsellors’ strengths, passions, experiences, and approaches.

Our strength springs from our commonalities and differences, and our unique and holistic perspective.

Getting Started
FREE 15-minute Consultation

At Stillwater Counselling & Wellness we start by offering a FREE 15-minute consultation before your first counselling appointment. We recognize that counselling requires a commitment of energy, emotion, and resources. We want to support you in making a successful investment as well as informed decisions about your counselling.

Finding the ‘right’ counsellor is a challenging but important process. There are two important parts of the consultation process: Firstly, it’s important that you feel safe, comfortable, and confident working ith your counsellor. The consultation provides you the opportunity to meet a prospective counsellor and ask questions that are important to you. Secondly, it’s important that your counsellor is wellequipped to meet your needs. The consultation also provides an opportunity for your counsellor to ask you questions, clarify your goals, and evaluate if their training and approach is well-aligned with your needs.

Please note, the consultation is not counselling.
If there is a good fit between you and your counsellor, you are welcome to schedule your first session
