Grief and Loss Counselling


Because love and care are profound and beautiful, grief is intense and painful. Grief changes the lens through which you see life. Grief counselling with Barbara can help you navigate the complex emotions of grief, prioritize the voice and memories of the person you have lost, and find ways to move forward while keeping your memory alive. With our help, you can work through your grief and find a new sense of peace and hope.


Depression and Anxiety


At some point in our lives, many of us will experience periods of low mood that can be difficult to shake. Experiencing low moods from time to time frequently can be a result of various stressors. If you've been feeling depressed or detached, and if you're grappling with a negative mindset impacting your well-being, consider a new direction. A continuous period of anxiety can substantially affect your day-to-day life as well as strain your relationships. Depression and anxiety counselling can assist you in regaining control by accessing your body-mind inner peace and allowing you to begin life on your own once more confidently.


Sexual Abuse


Sexual abuse is never the victim’s fault. Accepting support following abuse is critical to healing. One can reach out to a professional for help regarding sexual abuse. With the help of trauma recovery counselling, victims can take control of their healing journey and work towards overall wellness. If you or someone you know has experienced sexual abuse, professional support makes a difference.




We all want to avoid painful experiences in our lives – It is essential to understand what trauma is and develop effective coping strategies when traumatic events occur. Reaching out for help for traumatic experiences is the first step to having a peaceful life.


Parenting and Child Counselling


Efficient communication is a crucial component of creating a happy and healthy family. We can collaborate with you to help comprehend your child's developmental stage. You will discover constructive ways to deal with the challenges and tensions of parenting, allowing you to have a more positive relationship with your child or adolescent. Barbara Browne BSW RSW in Aurora provides counseling for parents and children, addressing relationship turbulence.

Feel Better to Get Better


The most important thing to remember is that your health is highly dependent on your psyche; the more depressed you are, the greater the chances of disease. Reducing your stress levels will ensure that your mood is better and boost immunity and longevity. Extreme worry and stress levels have the potential to make you ill, from a simple common cold to severe cardiac conditions. When it comes to managing your state, including depression and anxiety, or coping with grief and loss, Barbara uses an approach to couple and family counselling that is a brief, emotionally focused therapy model. 


The point of therapeutic services is to help patients cope with psychological blocks or intense trauma. Overcome challenges with dedicated therapeutic support with Barbara’s assistance and dedication.

Patient Testimonial


Dear Barbara,

You may remember my name, as a client you had some years ago. I have been meaning to write you for some time to let you know of the lasting impression you made on me.

Since I have left your counselling, there have been many times that I have asked myself how would Barbara suggest that I handle this or that situation. In relation to a current issue, I remember you saying that you couldn't change how a person acts, you can only change how you would react to their action. It seems such a self-evident thing, yet sometimes it needs to be pointed out by a third party.

As well as that, I have often asked myself, what question would Barbara ask here. As often as not, the question is one of self-examination, as in why, precisely, am I disappointed/frustrated/ happy/sad/emotional about whatever is current. The answer, (if not illuminating) at least allows me to deal with it in a more appropriate way.

Having had the advantage of your counselling, I am very pleased to tell you that I think it has made me a better person. Although I tend to let whatever issue get the better of me before I ask myself "What would Barbara say/suggest here?", I am striving to ask myself that query earlier in a given situation.

Barbara, I am very pleased that I had the help of your advice and that I continue to be helped by it. I sincerely hope that you & your family are well.

Yours truly



Always There for You!


Barbara is here to listen when life gets challenging, and you feel less like yourself.
