The Essential Cheryl

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in private practice in Victoria and the Western Communities. I received a BA in Psychology in 1999, and an M.Ed in Counselling Psychology in 2004 from the University of Victoria. Continued Education is very important, and I am currently engaged in the two year program of Somatic Transformation, offered by Dr. Sharon Stanley.

Recently, I taught Group Processes at City University of Seattle, Langford Campus and, occasionally, teach the Violence Prevention Program at the Justice Institute of British Columbia.

I have extensive experience in child protection, working closely with families to address issues that hinder the parents' ability to be the kind of parents they the want to be. And, that their children need them to be.

One area of personal focus is mindfulness; I have a deep belief that in bringing increased awareness to those things that happen around me I can continue to learn and grow and thrive, despite circumstances that arise.

I believe that people can change, and I understand that each person is her
or his own expert; I offer respectful and clear guidance for co-creating strategies that assist people to move toward their goals and dreams.
