Master of Arts (MA) in Counselling Psychology
Canadian Certified Counsellor
Irina holds a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia and is a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Throughout her career, Irina has been privileged to work with a wide range of clients concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress management, dealing with transitional times, career concerns and many others. She understands well that life is not easy sometimes and we all need an encouragement and support. Irina will meet you right there where you are and stay with you throughout your journey towards the successful change. Irina does this through a combination of listening, understanding, guiding, and ensuring clients have everything they need to achieve their goals.
Irina strongly believes that developing compassionate, supportive and trusting relationships with clients is one of the keys to successful therapy. To this end, she creates a warm and safe environment in which clients can share their problems and concerns. The next steps are for Irina to help identify the goals for therapy and map out guidance and directions to reach them.
Drawing from the Cognitive-Behavioural and Alderian theories, Irina builds interventions that work for each individual client. Irina enjoys teaching her clients new skills to help them to change and control their emotions, thinking patterns, and behaviours, and coping strategies to cope with whatever the situation is, thus adapting better to environment and hence eventually being able to resolve the concerns by themselves. She also finds teaching the client certain behavioural skills, such as assertiveness, self-care and relaxation being helpful. Irina always looks for new and creative ways of reaching the goals of counselling established with clients.
Irina’s multicultural background helps her to relate well to those experiencing problems and difficulties with immigration and acculturation and helps to be flexible in working with clients of diverse ethnic backgrounds.
