navigate crisis and find balance

Book Your No-Fee Consultation

A warm welcome to Clear Coast Counselling center in Victoria, BC.

We all face challenges in life and find ourselves in circumstances where we don’t know what to do, how we got there or who to turn to. We’ve tried everything we can think of, but nothing we’re doing is working the way we need it to. We feel stuck.

Clear Coast provides a confidential and compassionate setting to identify your concerns, explore the landscape of your life and develop effective tools to navigate crisis and find balance.

Empowered by addressing the current issue, a desire for deeper change is often ignited. That’s when things become really interesting and people go from trying to survive life to re-shaping it in fun and stimulating ways.

At that point, the coast is clear for new possibilities! People have a natural brilliance that when allowed to shine is a positive force for change in the world.
