Counselling For Anxiety
Did you know that excessive anxiety is the most common mental health concern in Canada? Although a healthy level of anxiety is important to our functioning and survival, many people experience overwhelming worry and stress that interferes with their daily lives.
The good news is that anxiety and panic are highly treatable, and extensive clinical research has shown that most people can be helped with professional care. Discover how therapy can help you to reduce worry, stress, and panic, and develop a different relationship with your thoughts and your body.
Have you experienced a real or perceived threat to your sense of stability and security? Were you involved in an event where you experienced a loss of control and were unable to keep yourself or someone else safe? Do you experience flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia, anger, shame, or hopelessness as a result?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are likely dealing with the effects of one or more traumatic experiences that have left you feeling alone, disconnected, and questioning your sense of self.
At ARC we provide evidence-based care to treat trauma and PTSD. Several of our therapists are also trained in EMDR – an extensively researched and proven approach for the treatment of trauma symptoms.
Are you experiencing difficulties in your intimate and romantic relationships and can’t figure out why? Perhaps you and your partner are always disagreeing and fighting, or are having trouble maintaining that ‘spark’ or emotional closeness in your relationship?
Whether you are seeking individual therapy for help with relationships, or you are seeking couples counselling to heal an already troubled relationship, we can help. Our therapists have specialized training in relationship counselling in Vancouver, and are experts at providing a safe environment where you and your partner can both feel heard and understood.

All our therapists have a minimum of a masters degree and are fully licensed BC counsellors, with active professional liability insurance. They are up-to-date on emerging research and always keep ethics at the forefront of their work.
We offer appointments everyday from 9am to 9pm (including weekends!) and we do our best to avoid waitlists. We’re also walking distance to four skytrain stations, and accept a variety of payment types including debit and credit.
We value your time and money, and are upfront about our specialties & fees from the start. If your needs don’t align with our competencies or resources, we will openly let you know, and suggest some more suitable referrals.
We welcome diversity and are proud to provide care to individuals of all identities and backgrounds. Our therapists are trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and work hard to truly understand your lived experience.
We are committed to providing you the best care possible, and we take our commitment to improvement and growth seriously. We will always address and attend to any concerns you have throughout your therapeutic journey.
We offer a free initial consultation so that you can assess client-therapist fit, and to answer any questions you have about therapy. We respect your autonomy, and we respect your need to make an informed decision before diving in.
