Providing Counselling in Vancouver and North Delta

Do you feel apprehensive about seeing a therapist? Many people still see counselling as a weakness. Something you might suggest to a friend who is going through a difficult time, but hard to give yourself the same advice?

Most people explore counselling when they feel desperate, and have reached the limits of how to handle life’s challenges. We understand how difficult it can be to reach out and we are here to help.

At Turning Point, we are committed to providing you with a safe and accepting space to reflect, learn, grow, and heal.

We have 2 locations. Downtown Vancouver serving clients in Vancouver, North Vancouver, and Burnaby.  North Delta serving clients in the Fraser Valley including Surrey, Langley and Richmond.

Who We Are and our Approach

Turning Point Therapy has a team of dedicated therapists and interns who are passionate about their practice and what therapy has to offer.  We all walk along side you in our own journey of transformation and knowledge that we bring to the therapeutic relationship with you.

We practice a style of therapy that includes the following principles and practices.

Relational

We see the importance of relationship to all humans. That it is through relationship that we can experience safety, compassion, acceptance and healing.  We also recognize that our deepest wounds have occurred in relationship and therefore believe that the relationship between you and your therapist is foundational to creating a new experience of connection where you have the opportunity to relax into who you are meant to be.

Experiential

We believe that change occurs through an awareness of experience. Your experience only occurs in the present moment.  All your previous experience affects how you experience yourself and others in the present moment.  So in this way we have access in the present to all aspects of your experience.  Neuroscience research also informs us that our emotions are key to integrating new information and therefore key to any transformational experience.

Embodied

Connection to our bodies relates in part to the focus on the present moment.  We bring attention to sensations, emotions and movement as different parts of our experience. As therapists we take in all levels of communication including somatic. We practice being centred and grounded. We know that integration and connection with others occurs when we are regulated in our body.  We also understand that our past wounds and traumas are held in the body and so releasing this needs to include our physical self as well as our cognitive self.

Collaborative

This refers to an aspect of the type of relationship we want to cultivate with you. We are in partnership with you in working together to figure out what you need  We seek to invite you, not tell you, to involve you, not disregard you and to follow your agenda not ours.

Non-Pathologizing

We focus on your strengths, resources, and developing new skills. We see your struggles in the context of managing difficult circumstances, and trauma's you have encountered. Rather than something that is wrong with you, we reframe your experience as having to encounter and manage, the disturbance and chaos that has surrounded you.

“From the moment you walk into her space, there is a wonderful, comforting setting. Delyse helps you get in touch with yourself and provides great insights without making too many inferences on your feelings or experience. She has already helped me refocus and I am looking forward to continuing to work with her to improve my skill set with anxiety and depression. Her technique is very gentle and grounding, it allows someone like myself who is often anxious be able to talk freely without feeling judged. I look forward to the sessions, knowing that I’m taking steps towards self-improvement with her guidance.”
