Vanessa Robertson
Student Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in training


Hello I am Vanessa (she/her). I am finishing my Masters of Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. At the core of my practice is the belief in each person’s inner wisdom and strength. Our human experience can be scary, confusing, and overwhelming at times. Life transitions, traumatic events, escalating work stress, family tensions, grief and loss can seem unbearable. However, these experiences can provide profound growth, self-awareness and transformation with the right tools. There is no one-size-fits-all in therapy. I believe in a holistic approach that takes the whole person, body, mind, and spirit into account. My approach is warm and playful and I welcome laughter in our sessions.
What if we could work at your pace to uncover your concerns’ root causes? When we understand how our past affects our current behaviour, we can work towards more beneficial ways of being. Old patterns that once ensured our survival may no longer serve us. Uncovering those unmet needs can be the beginning of a return to wholeness.

I maintain a culturally aware, client-centred, safe space of compassion and non-judgment for you to share, be authentic, and vulnerable. I advocate for normalizing therapy and de-stigmatizing mental health care. Having begun my journey in therapy many years ago, I appreciate what it feels like to be heard and understood. I offer daytime, evening and weekends

I am currently in training for Somatic EMDR and I look forward to offering clients this valuable service.
