BETA THERAPEUTICS CLINICAL COUNSELLORS IN VICTORIA BC



REGISTERED CLINICAL COUNSELLORS vs. PSYCHOLOGISTS - WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

A Registered Clinical Counsellor will hold a master’s degree in counselling and will meet specific eligibility criteria, undergo specific supervision and meet clinical requirements in order to become registered. All members of our mental health team are registered with either the BCACC or the CCPA in order ensure an exceptional level of care for our patients. Therapists are qualified to evaluate and treat both mental health concerns and diagnoses. Approaches vary and clinical counsellors should be providing empirically supported approaches to their sessions.

A Psychologist will typically hold a doctoral degree and is qualified to evaluate and treat mental health concerns and diagnoses. All approaches should be research based and empirically supported. The main difference lies in a Psychologists ability to provide assessments and diagnose mental health conditions.

WHAT CAN CLINICAL COUNSELLING DO FOR YOU?

Learn coping mechanisms

Hard days and difficult circumstances are almost an inevitable part of being human. Understanding how to gain perspective and carry on are invaluable parts of learning to deal with hardships.

Overcome a past hurt or trauma

Sometimes a past hurt can hold a power over us that we are not even aware of. Facing a difficult part of your past can offer the freedom to move forward without the burden of always having to carry the guilt, shame or hurt with you.

Create positive relationships

Learn to create a positive sense of self and, as a result, positive relationships with those who mean the most to you.

Support recovery

Discover how to support yourself through your recovery process - and how to access resources and assistance when you feel isolated in your return to health.

Manage grief & loss

Allow yourself to experience the steps of the grieving process in a safe and secure environment. Honouring the loss of an important being in your life allows you to move on without forgetting the connection you once shared.

Establish healthy boundaries

Acquire the skills needed to create and uphold your personal boundaries. Learn to appreciate why this is important and how it creates nourishing relationships in your life.
