Linda Liu is a BC Registered Clinical Counsellor. Her counselling approach is holistic, non-pathologizing, strength and relationally based with a focus on somatic awareness to bring congruency between the mind and body. What she has learned through counselling work is that many of our wounds occur within our most trusted relationships causing us to have difficulties getting close to loved ones. Also, we become disconnected from ourselves when we experience trauma or disruptions in relationships. The good news is, with the right support, everyone has an inner capacity to heal and transform from their struggles and challenges.

 

From personal experience, she knows the feeling of apprehension and vulnerability when sitting before a total stranger and sharing your stories. She commend you for taking this first step, and she hope she can be a source of great assistance along the way. Let's begin with a free 10 minutes consultation and go from there.

 

Education and Speciality: Linda is trained in Somatic Experiencing and Narrative Therapy for supporting people with childhood trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, and relationship issues.

Fiona Hu is a registered clinical counsellor in British Columbia.

In working with teenagers and families, I learned that every occurrence in life has a meaning behind it. I focus on experiencing life with the clients to provide a comfortable and safe place for clients to find their genuine selves.

 

I worked with teenagers, young adults, adults, and parents from diverse cultural backgrounds, focusing on anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, personal growth, cultural conflicts within the family, parent-child relationship, and parenting.

Group Session Clinical Counselling and how would it help? 

 

Group therapy has both psycho-educational and therapeutic purposes. Usually, there will be 6~12 people attending. Most therapy groups are closed groups where you will be working on the same topic with the same group of people over a short period of time. During this period of time, you will learn together with your group-mates on a specific topic. There will be discussions and therapeutic work/assignments that are intended to lead you to reach your therapeutic goal. You are expected to be committed to participate
in group activities and homework in order for maximizing the therapeutic outcome. Open groups are on-going groups where commitment is not required. Bessie offers group therapy in various themes and topics.
