At Simmons Counselling Services, located on the North Shore, we provide counselling services for children and their families, individuals and couples. We believe that relationships with your family, your friends, and your self are important. We can help you navigate your way through the complexities of these relationships.

Families are the foundation of any society. As parents, you shape and create the future through your children. This reality is not easy as you constantly have to adapt to an ever changing world and your children often have to process difficult and confusing messages from a variety of sources. This confusion can be reflected in your children’s behaviour and emotional wellbeing, and in the functioning of your family.

Located in West Vancouver, B.C., we counsel clients from North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby and other areas of Greater Vancouver.

Simmons Counselling Services offer a wide range of counselling approaches that are tailored to your unique needs. We are committed to providing you with a counselling service that is empathetic, non judgemental, and confidential. Johanna Simmons, Principle Counsellor, provides one-on-one, parent, and family counselling, neurofeedback as well as therapeutic group sessions and workshops that address specific topics.
