Work With a Student

Working with a student is a fantastic option for counselling support. They are at the top of the mental health game, freshly learning new and time-tested ways to help you move through what’s troubling you.

Another great benefit to working with a student is that the fees are usually considerably lower. They are supervised by a long-time practicing therapist (Leanne in this case) and have multiple avenues for support to providing you with the care you deserve.

Hello! My name is Tessa Wilson and I am a practicum student in the Masters in Counselling Psychology (MACP) program at Yorkville University. I am currently completing my practicum at Archway Society for Domestic Peace in the Oak Centre program. I am appreciative of this opportunity to provide counselling to those who have experienced violence.

I am passionate about connecting with people and supporting them through their healing journey. My goal is to provide a safe, compassionate, judgement free space for people to come and express their thoughts, feelings and experiences.

The types of therapy I am interested in providing are person-centered therapy, emotion-focused therapy, compassion focused therapy and narrative therapy.
