Together we are strong. Metro Vancouver Indigenous Counselling is a platform designed to connect Indigenous and ally counsellors to clients from throughout British Columbia. Creating a community of practice, counsellors are able to connect and share their gifts and expertise to best meet the needs of their clients.
We understand that culture is central to the mental health treatment of Indigenous peoples. Our hope is to build a community of practice that will work together to meet this critical need in dynamic ways.
We honour the diversity and understand the commonalities of the Indigenous experience. For this reason, our services are not bound to colonial representations of Indigeneity. We believe in bringing people together in strength and wellness.
We provide a service that is free from the racism and discrimination that is rampant in mainstream healthcare. Supporting Indigenous and ally counsellors break into the field of private practice, we hope to increase access to culturally safe mental health services for Indigenous peoples.
