Leanne Cuddington, MA
Registered Clinical Counsellor

mature-woman-depressed.jpgI am a Kitsilano, Vancouver-based Registered Clinical Counsellor who helps individuals and couples overcome trauma and other challenging life experiences, such as:
  • Anxiety, worry or fear
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems
  • Marital or family distress
  • Problems sleeping and/or nightmares
  • Grief
  • Panic attacks or phobias
  • Low self-esteem
  • Addictions
  • Self-defeating behaviours (social isolation, anger and irritability, impulsiveness, poor boundaries, trouble asserting yourself, hypervigilance)
Many people think of trauma as connected only to major harmful events like a violent attack or a catastrophic accident. However, trauma can result from any number of negative life experiences in the past or present, such as:
  • Physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • A painful relationship breakup
  • The death of a loved one
  • Negative parenting or relationships
  • Emotional or physical abandonment
  • Witnessing physical or verbal violence
  • Accidents or injuries
  • Acute or chronic illness
Using a blend of body-mind (somatic), cognitive, and emotional therapeutic approaches, my role is to help you achieve authentic insights and new understanding about the interplay between trauma and negative life experiences to the relationships with yourself and others.

In our work together, we will integrate all parts of the self - body, mind, and emotions - into your healing. By becoming more aware of your physical and emotional responses and habitual defences to life events, you can reclaim control over how you relate to yourself and others, and emerge as a fuller, happier human being.

Entering counselling can seem like an admission of failure, when actually it is a courageous step toward positive choice and change. Contact me for a free 20-minute initial phone consult or to arrange an in-person appointment.
