I believe we are all unique and have different life experiences that bring us to therapy so I don’t adhere to a one size fits all approach to therapy” – Melanie Perron

Individual Counselling

Individual counselling takes courage as you share with a therapist your personal thoughts, emotions and life experiences. It gives you an opportunity to set aside time to focus on your emotional and mental well-being, which too often is on the back-burner of an endless list of priorities. It also provides you with a safe place to reflect, process, and develop a greater understanding of yourself and others. As your therapist, I will draw upon your human resilient nature to overcome adversity so you can grow and thrive in our complex world. On a practical side, we will build your “coping toolbox” so you can be more in control of your emotions and thoughts while intentionally living a fuller life.

Children and Adolescents ages 13 and over

I provide counselling services to children and teenagers who are struggling with a variety of mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, disordered eating, interpersonal difficulties, and emotional disturbances. My therapeutic stance is to provide a warm and supportive environment where teenagers feel understood, valued, and respected. Clinical approaches that inform my practice with teenagers include CBT, DBT, Attachment Theory and Family Systems Theory.

*Please note that I do require parental consent for children and adolescents under the age 18 years old.

Virtual appointments are available upon request.
