Adults, Youth, Children & Families


At Arches Counselling our mission is to provide therapy that is respectful, validating, and collaborative. What matters to us is that you have an experience of compassionate curiosity.


Our virtual sessions are through OwlPractice; a secure video and messaging platform which is Canada’s number one choice for mental health practitioners. If there are technical difficulties we have a privacy-compliant backup video platform.

In Person

For in-person sessions, Arches Counselling adheres to the Provincial government and British Columbia Association of Registered Clinical Counsellors for health and safety guidelines. We follow enhanced disinfecting protocols, wear and offer masks, provide hand sanitizer, and use Hepa air purifiers in our office. Clients and therapists with any symptoms of a cold, flu, or Covid-19, including coughing or sneezing will be advised not to attend in-person sessions.


For circumstances where video is not a possibility or a phone call is preferred, telehealth sessions are available, however please note it is not secured beyond the telecommunications provider. Arches Counselling will conduct your session in a private space.
