Effective Counselling in Nanaimo

Effective counselling in Nanaimo is Helena Green's mandate and passion. She brings it all - her life experience, university education, counselling skills plus Energy Psychology, i.e. Meridian Tapping  to her psychotherapy.

Qualifications & Background

Helena began her formal counselling training in 1994 in Duncan, BC and has continued her education and professional development to this day. Her comprehensive professional accreditation includes

  • Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling (#3275), Canadian ProfessionalCounsellors Association
  • Vancouver Island Regional Director, Canadian Professional Counsellors Association
  • Energy Psychology Certified Practitioner - Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Alternative Healthcare Profession

  • The Art of Creative Thinking - a cyclic, dynamic problem solving model
  • The Whole Circle - a model and template for holistic meetings, adaptable to speciality groups or general application

In private practice with Counselling for the Health of It, her primary theoretical approach uses Family Systems Theory as the core in understanding current personal dynamics. At the same time, Helena's psychotherapy incorporates a Person Centred approach and is Solutions Focused. That means counsellor and client work in the client's world, embracing the client's holistic experience. With that, Helena is able to harness the wisdom of the client's own mind/body connection. It is all a matter of awareness and doing"The Work."

Helena's areas of specialization include relationship problem advicepersonal growth and anxiety. She is also trained in Tapping Therapy, aka Meridian Tapping and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Tapping Therapy is a particularly effective modality that Helena is professionally certified in. Meridian Tapping is effective in changing limiting beliefs and/or behaviours that keep you from achieving your potential and the joy that springs from that freedom. 

The principles in the books "The Four Agreements" and "The Fifth Agreement," by Don Miguel Ruiz form central themes in her philosophy and psyco-educational handouts.

Counselling involves, amoung other things, deep listening. As Helena steps into your world, her personal clarity allows her to reflect your own wisdom back to you. This synergistic connection forms the wellspring for your healing and growth. Ultimately, counsellor and client(s) form a collaboration of minds and hearts in a safe forum where effective, lasting change can take place. Client testimonials help tell the story.

Beyond Counselling

You are invited to check out her Ramblings of an Old Flower Child column in Synergy Magazine as well. These bi-monthly issues include Helena's counselling publications that reflect her life experience and lessons learned in her personal journey of self awareness. All in all, her psychotherapy employs a synergistic connection with her clients. She is available to listen without judgement and create a safe place for her clients' healing and insight.
