Hello and welcome. My name is Eleni Petropoulos and I work as a counsellor in private practice in downtown Vancouver. In my practice I help individuals struggling with mental health issues, substance abuse, and trauma find ways to heal from their suffering and achieve emotional well-being. I understand how difficult creating change can be but I believe the support of a compassionate therapist can help ease the process. My counselling style is empathetic and I approach each client’s situation in a holistic way that is suitable to their individual needs.
I have a background in substance abuse treatment, counselling individuals and groups in a residential treatment centre achieve sobriety while attending to concurrent disorders such as anxiety, depression, and trauma. My work also included running workshops on addictions, boundary setting, communication skills, and family systems. I have also facilitated support groups for women and clients in recovery.
I am a member of the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association. I am certified in Canada as a Canadian Certified Counsellor with a Masters in Counselling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology. I am also certified in EMDR Level I & II.
I am motivated to help you grow and achieve the goals you set for yourself in therapy while creating a safe place where you can explore yourself and your situation with a new light.
