What Type of Counseling Should You Do?

Seeking help can be a major step in achieving growth. Our in-house counselor, registered social worker, and health and wellness coach, Deon Ambersley supports clients in taking this step, by assisting them to address whatever issues they may be struggling with. Some of the issues she provides counseling for include:

  • How to deal with loss
  • Adjusting to change
  • Developing positive self-esteem and self confidence
  • Anger management issues
  • Managing stress and anxiety
  • Setting boundaries and becoming more assertive
  • Practicing self-awareness

What Makes Us Different?

Using modalities such as cognitive behavioral theory, solution focused therapy and motivational interviewing, our counselor assists individuals in moving from where they are, to where they would like to be.
In addition to providing counseling services, she also infuses her expertise as a certified health and wellness coach into the work she does.

She assists you in pushing past your limitations and becoming the healthiest version of yourself.

We assist you by:
Tapping into your strengths

Becoming “Unstuck”
Reframing your experiences
Managing your time and become organized
Being held accountable
Setting realistic goals and developing a plan to achieve them

If the issue you would like to address is not listed above, we would be happy to speak with you in order to determine whether it falls into the scope of our practice.


How do I know if I need counseling?

At Rose Health Clinic, we work from a very client-centred approach. If you have any issues and need a safe space to discuss your concerns with a professional, or simply need advice from an outside perspective, we can offer that counsel and support. Everyone needs help. At times, many individuals feel “stuck” or they are trying to change patterns or cyclical behaviours that may be destructive to them, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Our counselor, Deon, has developed a wide range of experiences — from work with community agencies and correctional facilities to the education system, from kindergarten through to the post-secondary level. She has also worked with adults struggling with relationship issues and mental health through agencies, such as Morneau Shepell and Family Services of Peel. Her extensive experience has given her the knowledge and the tools to help you get to the root of your problem and eventually guide you towards developing healthy relationships and lifestyles as well as a deeper sense of self-awareness.

Are Rose Health Clinic’s counseling services covered by insurance?
