Jacqueline Gautier & Associates Counselling
Professional Counselling, Consultation and Educational Clinic

Counselling, Consultation & Supervision

My focus in counselling is an integrated approach, one which primarily offers a safe, confidential environment and a sincerely dedicated presence in the exploration of mind, body, emotions and spirit.  Each client is wonderfully unique and therefore therapy is specifically tailored to your needs and desires.  It certainly is a profound honor to witness and facilitate the healing process and a decrease in suffering and symptoms, as we navigate life challenges, emotional wounds, traumatic experiences, vulnerabilities and concerns.  I believe in your inherent ability to access internal wisdom as we uncover the true self, one which is imbued with organic regulation and resiliency.

I work with individuals, couples, families, children, youth and groups.

My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:
