Alison Bell - Registered Clinical Counsellor
Alison Bell has over a decade experience providing counselling and therapy services and has operates a private practice with several associates since 2006. I have a graduate degree from the University of British Columbia and am a registered member in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, along with other specialized training and professional therapy and counselling associations. I engage in a process of ongoing professional development and training while collaborating with other professionals to ensure my skills and practice are current, effective and client-centered.
Many of my professional and training experiences have prepared me to work with issues and clients that other therapists may be unfamiliar or inexperienced with. Prior to my graduate training I had several professional opportunities to support and advocate for individuals and children who were at risk, in crisis, or were without resources to meet their emotional, physical or safety needs. I have also been privileged with the opportunity to mentor, train and supervise several other helping professionals and therapists. I have experience and training with a variety of diverse therapeutic approaches and believe that it is essential to tailor interventions and approaches uniquely to each client’s needs. My belief is that people are the most qualified experts on their own lives and experience, but that at times they can benefit from an objective, skilled and compassionate guide. Collaborating with clients to identify their therapeutic and personal goals while identifying their strengths and coping skills is essential to empowering clients to make change.
