Welcome to New Dawn Counselling & Consulting...
Hello, my name is Michelle Nelson and I provide counselling specially tailored for women. My office is located in Summerland, B.C. Canada. I also provide counselling through Skype or phone sessions if you are not living in the South Okanagan area.
I have 12 years of experience as a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. I am also a Registered Nurse in good standing with the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP)
Mental health is now acknowledged to be as important as physical health. I come with the skills to bring balance between women’s mental, emotional and physical health. I believe that most of us have a strong need for connection, balance and a sense of purpose. Having a safe place to talk, share and work on change is the heart of my counselling practice.
I can help achieve;
- Positive self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence
- Freedom from fears and self-limiting beliefs
- Acceptance of self and finding balance among work, family, friends and home
- Regaining value, meaning and purpose in life
- Instilling hope and optimism during difficult times
Counselling is an important extended benefit that is provided to nurses in British Columbia. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, I am qualified to assist you in coping with personal difficulties that may be affecting your mental, social, physical well-being or work performance.
I stand out from other counsellors as I am a nurse, which gives me a personal understanding of the career and its pressures. I will tailor your counselling sessions to fit your unique needs which will be fully reimbursed through Blue Cross.
