One-on-one therapy is commonly used to encourage personal growth and healing. It involves meeting with our counsellor, Amber Raymond, individually for roughly one hour at a time to uncover personal struggles, which often lead to problematic behaviours and situations.
1:1 sessions can help pinpoint unhelpful thoughts and break down barriers that impact emotional and mental well-being. As a counsellor, Amber seek to help others become more self-aware, to develop self-compassion, self-esteem, and spiritual connections. I believe that getting to know ourselves allows us to better navigate the challenges we all inevitably face in this life. Working 1:1 will enable us to develop personalized approaches and techniques that work best for you.

I have always wondered what makes us think, feel and behave the way we do. With my education and experiences, my curiosity has blossomed into a full blown passion for helping people develop the tools they need to understand the world within and around them.
My journey as a mother has motivated me to help parents and families proactively overcome life's challenges. As and individual, daughter, mother, wife and empathetic person, I faced my share of challenges. Obstacles that have encouraged me to look within and learn effective, practical techniques to overcoming internal conflicts. My goal is to walk alongside those looking to achieve satisfaction and joy in life by growing more self-aware, self-loving and resilient.
"As many of my friends and family know I suffered a severe loss when my oldest daughter Justine was killed in a car accident in 2017. My world changed forever, and I thought I would never get to a point in my life where I can truly say that I am finding a new me.It has taken several years for me to come to terms with the fact that I could either let this tragedy consume me or rise above it and find peace and purpose in my life again.
I have realized that it is better for a person to have guidance and positive encouragement from others to make life’s journey easier. Therefore, I would like to take this time to say how truly grateful I am to have met my wonderful therapist Amber Raymond who has truly inspired me to grow and continues to assist me through the steps of my healing process.
She has a way of teaching you how to forgive, accept and move through your emotions with ease and positivity.She is an amazing listener; a terrific motivator and her sincerity became apparent upon our first visit. She really is 100% living proof that there are still good people in this world who enjoy helping others and truly want others to succeed." - R. Soulliere
