Jill Arnold is a registered clinical counsellor who specializes in working with people dealing with stress, anxiety, relationship and family difficulties, and anger management issues.
As both a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Certified Hypnotherapist, I am able to work with you to uncover the root of your uncomfortable feelings, and give you the tools and techniques to live a more purposeful and balanced life. I have been working to support families and individuals in Surrey, White Rock, Vancouver and the Fraser Valley for over a decade. It is my goal to help you to find a new balance in your life: in your friendships, relationships, fitness, health, self-esteem and personal performance goals.
Why Did I Become a Registered Clinical Counsellor?
I believe that everyone has the capacity for change when given the right support, tools and guidance. I find it very rewarding to see clients move from lifelong patterns that are uncomfortable and unsuccessful, into new positive ways of being.
Whether it’s flying free of fear, driving over bridges, speaking in public, enjoying relationships in new ways, having a healthy relationship with food and body image, or any number of other positive outcomes, I am able to quickly assess what a client needs and create a specialized program to move toward lasting change.
Counselling Style and Process:
My counselling style is practical, effective and compassionate. I believe in providing my clients with a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment where they can feel at ease to discuss their problems and issues. I also believe in quickly finding the tools and techniques that can help give clients immediate relief and begin the process toward positive and effective change.
I feel it’s important to understand what to expect during the counselling process. In our first sessions, you will begin by sharing your current experience of life, and how you would envision your life if you were able to move past your negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Following this, I will take the information you provide, and design a realistic and effective plan to achieve your goals, incorporating any number of appropriate and useful techniques based on my training, education and experience.
I will fully explain the suggested approach and answer any questions you may have so you know what to expect and are comfortable with beginning the process of change in a safe and comfortable way.
Because my focus is always on finding the right techniques to help you feel better right away, I find that many issues resolve in as little as four to six sessions, although it always depends on your specific set of circumstances.
