Amy Mills-Guest Counselling
Clinical Counselling Services
in Victoria, BC and online
"Today I choose courage over comfort. It starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen. It’s owning your story and loving yourself and the best part is that courage is contagious."
Hi, I'm Amy and I am honoured you are here. I’d like to start by
acknowledging your bravery in seeking support for you or
your loved one.
I desire to provide gentle and compassionate care, empathy
and a safe place as I believe that we as humans have longings
to feel seen, heard, known, understood, felt, accepted,
and cared for, especially in difficult moments.
I have always found meaning in connecting with others
on an authentic, deep, heart level and in making meaningful
impact in the lives of others.
A longing to lead a life in alignment with who I am at the core
of my being led me to pursue counselling not just as a profession,
but as a calling and passion.
I love what I do and am honoured that I get to hold space for my clients and see transformation happen in their lives. It makes my heart full to know that I am making a daily difference, one person at a time.
Although I am experienced in my work a generalist, I have extensive experience in the area of chronic pain.
On a personal note-
As I am nearing my mid 40s, I have navigated various challenges, including life transitions and grief of all kinds (death and non-death losses). I cherish beautiful moments that unfold in life while also seeing the value of holding space for feelings that emerge from the difficult places of life. It is from my own human-ness that I draw my compassion for each person I encounter in the therapy room.
I live in beautiful British Columbia with my husband whom I have been married to for almost 20 years and our three children. I treasure spending quality time with my family and friends. I am an avid reader, and am most fulfilled when I am outdoors in nature. I enjoy hiking, biking, listening to music and visiting new places around the world.
I look forward to getting to know you and to connecting with you. It is my honour to meet you.
Traditional therapy has moved online in many settings, and the research has proven that for many individuals, it is equally as effective for anxiety, depression, and many other conditions.
I offer virtual counselling sessions remotely through a secure and encrypted video chat platform.
