The reasons vary as to why people seek out counselling services. In today’s society, there are tremendous daily stresses placed upon all of us including work, school, raising families, and modern relationships.

Counselling is beneficial in addressing stress-related conditions such as anxiety, depression, grief, phobias, eating disorders, pain disorders, addictions, panic attacks, violence, physical/sexual abuse. Counselling is an important step in regaining a sense of balance and well-being in one’s life.

We are pleased to offer flexible hours including both daytime and evening appointments to fit your busy lifestyle.

Meet Our Counsellors

Maureen Speidel - Psychologist (M.A., R.Psych.)

Maureen Spiedel enjoys working with clients who struggle with relationships, whether they be marital, familial, or professional. Having a background in attachment theory, she works well with individuals and couples who struggle with depression or anxiety stemming from events and relationships from their early childhood, and find themselves choosing similar relationships now which do not fulfill them. Maureen works with individuals and families aged 3-70, and anyone who is ready to address their concerns.

She excels in assisting individuals who suspect themselves of struggling with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) either due to a large trauma in their history or due to several small traumas.

Maureen is formally trained in attachment, which lends itself to how we operate in relationships and affects how we perceive events, triggering us to respond in ways we regret later.

Knowledgeable in the biology of the brain, Maureen is a trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) practitioner, providing empirically validated treatments to trauma, PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Maureen is also a Circle of Security Facilitator and is educated in the Neuro-Sequential Model of Therapeutics.
