My name is Cory Klath. Thank you for visiting the website for my counselling practice in Victoria, BC. I appreciate you taking the time to find out about my services and considering working with me.
For well over a decade, I have had the privilege of serving hundreds of people from all walks of life - working with them to improve their lives and achieve their goals.
One thing that just about everyone seems to agrees on is that being human is not easy! Life is hard and quite complicated – and we all deal with serious problems and challenging circumstances from time to time. Bad things can happen. Unexpected changes occur. We can be left feeling overwhelmed and lost... and not sure what to do. Yet as much as suffering is a part of our human experience, we are also naturally endowed with the powerful ability to heal and overcome... and THRIVE!
Counselling can be highly effective in helping us to work through difficult experiences, and facilitate healing and growth - leading to an improved sense of inner balance, wellness and functioning.
Or perhaps things are going very well… but maybe they can be even better! Do you have a vision for how you want to be living, but need some clarity and sense of direction to move forward?
While it is common for people to come to counselling to focus on a specific issue, sometimes it is helpful to talk to an impartial person about things going on in your life that you want to explore. Whether it be an experience that requires healing, a situation you want to better understand, a particular problem that requires a solution, or an important decision that you need to make, perhaps I can help.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Registered Social Worker (RSW) and my academic training is in Counselling Psychology (MA) and Social Work (BSW). My training and professional development are ongoing to ensure that my practice is in line with current research findings and best practice standards, which enables me to provide the most effective services possible.
The specific approach I take largely depends on what each individual person brings to work on in counselling. My primary concern is always meeting the specific goals of my clients. Starting with your outcome in mind, I will collaborate with you to determine how we can best get what you want out of your sessions. We are all unique in how we relate to our experience, and I tailor my approach to best meet your personal needs. At the heart of my approach is always the quality of the relationship I develop with each of my clients. Creating a safe, non-judgmental, empathic and confidential space is the most important aspect of our work together.
I always offer a free 30-minute consultation, which provides the opportunity to discuss your situation, answer any questions you may have and to determine if we will be a good fit.
Please contact me with any questions or to book an appointment.
I look forward to meeting you.
