Sarah Welton
Counsellor

IMG_4037.jpg

Sarah comes to TWO with over a decade of experience supporting children, youth, and their caregivers. As both a licensed BC Teacher and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), she strives to help each child to find their unique groove and to achieve their goals. Sarah is an energetic counsellor who thinks that counselling, though challenging at times, can be a playful and play-filled experience!

After completing her masters degree she has continued to advance her skills. She uses a combination of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and play therapy in her work with children. Whether working with your child to reduce anxiety, worries, and fears, supporting complexities related to Autism (ASD), helping with strategies for learning differences and developmental exceptionalities, or providing coaching around parenting challenges, Sarah is results oriented. To facilitate change, she bases her practice in data to help direct your work together. 

When not at TWO, Sarah can be found playing with her little one, trying a new recipe, or with her family exploring one of our local forests.

Nina Sekhon Sharma
Registered Clinical Counsellor (#8813)

Every person at some moment in their life reaches a roadblock where they are unsure what to do or who to turn to. Every day may feel like a struggle. Whether it be conflict in your relationship, feeling anxious, overwhelmed with life demands or just feeling stuck, counselling is a safe space that can allow you to address your most private and vulnerable emotions and thoughts. I have over 15 years of individual and family counselling experience and I am passionate in helping individuals and couples find their path to a more peaceful future. Together we will discuss your concerns, work toward healing, and find realistic solutions.

 

I use a trauma informed, culturally sensitive and empathetic approach drawing from evidence based modalities including CBT, ACT, Gottman Method, and SFT. Some issues that have arose in my sessions include addressing unhealthy thinking patterns, managing anxiety, overcoming gridlock, improving communication, practicing self-care, and reviving your relationship.

 

Experiencing a life transition isn't easy. My goal is to support you in revisiting past emotions and addressing negative patterns while working towards building resilience. Together we will work toward moving away from comfort zones and embrace change to achieve peaceful relationships with yourself, others, and future life challenges. 

 

"When things change inside you, things change around you." And it's a beautiful thing.

 

Let's connect. :)

Krishna Sharma      Counsellor

HEAD SHOT 2.jpg

Krishna Sharma is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). She holds a second Masters in Educational Leadership and a certified teacher with specializations in Montessori, Special Education and Restorative Justice. She has worked as a Youth and Family therapist with the RCMP and currently works as a school counsellor. 

 

Krishna's greatest asset is her ability to understand the struggles of her diverse clients due to her own life experiences; being raised by an immigrant and single mother; who worked three jobs, to raise her eight children. In addition, her intimate experiences, as a mother, provided her with unique perspectives; as her own children struggled with diverse learning needs, social challenges and the stress of navigating through the public school system. All these roles and life experiences helped inform her professional practice to guide client-centered support that is culturally responsive, trauma informed, developmentally appropriate, and collaborative. 

 

Krishna uses CBT, Narrative and play therapy in her work and is accepting online clients. She has extensive training in trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, Behaviour support, Social Emotional Learning, suicide assessments and mindfulness.
