Counselling for Creative Solutions:
A Wellness Approach
Our names are Susan Barron and Renee Climans. We are accomplished Social Workers (Masters of Social Work and Registered Social Workers) with extensive backgrounds in counselling/coaching with individuals, couples, families and groups.
A Collaborative Approach to Therapy
Our collaborative approach is guided by our clients. We begin by engaging clients (individuals, couples, and families) and inviting them to tell their stories.
We ask clients what they need and impart information to enable people to make informed choices. We work on attainable goals that are important to the person, encouraging them to take small steps. We enable persons to create ideas in their self change efforts and develop a plan toward the changes they are seeking.
It is very powerful to witness people as they move in their preferred direction and shift their views of themselves and their situations. We provide focused consultations and help people give voice to what living with their situation/condition means to them.
We are passionate about our work. Compassion, caring, openness, honesty and respect are very important in our conversations with our clients. That is simply why we invite people to engage in a helpful conversation.
Building Relationships Together
We believe that the relationship that is built with us will be one of the most important factors leading to change and successful outcomes. This emphasis on the interactive nature of relationships is what makes us unique as therapists. Through our relationship we create the opportunity for change and difference. Together we learn ways to help you achieve greater clarity regarding the purpose and meaning of your life leading to an enhanced sense of self as well as growth in all aspects of your personal and professional life.
