Testimonials from Clients
My counsellor was an immense help. I attribute our success as a family to deVries Counselling Group.
My counsellor helped us express our feelings and never judged us. She thoughtfully found a way to take our feelings and make us feel strong and normal. My counsellor is gentle, kind, and sincere. It was easy to trust her and feel safe. She has helped me be the best mom I can be, which I am most proud of.

The moment you walk into her office, you feel safe.
My counsellor has an amazing ability to connect and relate to people. She immediately puts you at ease. Her knowledge and expertise are exceptional. She explains things in ways I would never have been able to see on my own. We were able to work through my anxiety at the source.

My counsellor’s methods helped our daughter cope with her anxiety. She can now do things that we never thought were possible.
My daughter can now perform on stage, go on a trip with her classmates, and attend university.
When our second daughter started to struggle with anxiety, we did not hesitate to call deVries Counselling Group. Both my husband and I had seen the progress our oldest had made with their guidance, and we trust them implicitly.

I was able to do things I never thought possible.
I can now be my true self and have continued to thrive. My counsellor’s methods are clear, easy to implement and very effective. I have continued to see her on and off in my adult years, and most recently in couples counselling with my partner. She has given me invaluable support. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for her help. I highly recommend deVries Counselling Group to help efficiently build the foundation and tools for you or your child to thrive!

My life changed the moment my counsellor asked me why I was there!
It was like everything I’d ever held in my entire life came pouring out in tears! The second she looked at me with those warm, caring eyes, it’s like my body must’ve known I was safe and everything came out! I was completely embarrassed, and with her incredible humour and caring she set me right at ease.

Through family therapy, couples therapy, and child therapy, our counsellor skillfully guides our family out of our comfort zone so that we can learn and grow.
Our counsellor knows when to be understanding and patient in times when we are not ready to let go of things that hold us back from learning and growing. Life can be tough. It is great to be able to have a therapist that you trust 100%, to help you navigate through tough times.

Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for everything my counsellor taught me, and for how profoundly she impacted my life.
She was there by my side…helping me discover who I was, and because of her, I found my voice. I discovered my boundaries, worked through past and current traumas and struggles, and countless other things that I could never fit into this review. Thank you for being such a bright light in this world. I owe you so much!
– John B.
Because of my work with my counsellor, I’m a strong, capable woman.
I use the tools she gave me to approach every obstacle I face with courage and confidence.
The strength and education I gained through her have helped me to help others who may be struggling in their own lives, and encourage them to partner with their own deVries counsellor as they will see profound positive change.
– Athena B.
Talking to my counsellor is akin to talking to a long-lost childhood friend.
She makes you feel instantly at ease to openly talk about any topic in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
