Cornerstone Counselling Services

My Story

Meghan Robertson M.A., R.C.C

I have been engaged in the counselling field since 2007 and have worked in a variety of contexts; including crisis lines, mental health facilities, centres supporting women and children experiencing violence, correctional facilities, and community supportive recovery housing. As part of my own healing journey to work through past trauma, I have also sought out both individual and couples therapy. These experiences, in addition to the contexts I have worked in, have all allowed me to grow as a person as well as a counsellor. While I have experience working with many different problems, my primary areas of specialty are trauma processing through EMDR and Somatic therapies, addictions, as well as working with couples and families.

In my personal life, I have been blessed to be married to my husband for 12 years, and a mom to four young children, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, six goats and 9 chickens.

I take great pride in the health and happiness of my clients and look forward to walking with you!

 
Session Fees

My fees are based on the standards set by the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. Because a fit with your counsellor is so important, I offer a free 20-minute in-person or over-the-phone consultation.

My Approach

I consider every person I have the opportunity to walk with to be unique and capable of shifting any problem that may be getting in the way of being the best version of self possible. It is important to me to collaborate with each client to develop focus points in our work and I tend to adjust my specific approach to fit with that person's needs. I look for strengths and resources in my clients, as sometimes it can be hard for us to recognize those in ourselves. Commonly, I use the following therapeutic approaches as foundations in my work:

EMDR
Narrative Therapy
Solution-focused Brief Therapy
CBT, ACT, and DBT strategies
Somatic Experiencing

I am excited to offer counselling support to members in the following areas: Parksville, Nanoose Bay, Errington, Qualicum Beach, and Nanaimo.

Individual Sessions

$100 + tax/50-minute session

Before beginning counselling, I encourage you to develop a preferred vision for your life; one where the challenges you are currently facing are no longer preventing you from living a life that is as full as it could be. This is an important part of your change process, and will serve as one of the guides for our work together.

Couples and Family Sessions

$110 + tax/50-minute session

We do not exist in isolation; rather, we grow, heal, and become our best selves in relationship with others. I consider it an honour to support clients in cultivating the healthiest relationships possible with those closest to them.

Due to the nature of couple and family work, I am happy to discuss session fees and length to best fit with your needs.

Clients may be eligible to receive financial compensation for our sessions through their health benefit plans.
