Julia Siedlanowska

Clinical Counsellor

Whether you have tried many therapists, or have never been to therapy, I am comfortable working with people who are sceptical about the counselling process. I bring a trauma-informed lens to counselling to help you work through tricky moments from the past and present that we may or may not be entirely aware of. I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship. I aim to facilitate your search for personal meaning and life goals through various therapeutic techniques including narrative therapy, psychodrama, EMDR, and mindfulness. I have a person-centred approach, which means that I work collaboratively with you, at your own pace. I aim to be a non-judgmental listener, walking alongside as we face our fears, shame, self-loathing and other challenges to find greater self-acceptance and ease. I have worked for over a decade as a voice coach with artists and students aged six to sixty-five, helping them discover confidence in themselves through voice work, drama, and public speaking to create life-affirming transformation through voice. I bring this same compassion and curiosity to my work as a Registered Clinical Counsellor at Crossroads Collective. I have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, and Bachelor’s in Acting. I am registered with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Some of the challenges counselling can help you navigate are:
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Grief
    • Building Confidence
    • Self-Esteem and Sense of Self
    • Communication Skills
    • Stress Management
    • Personal Development
    • Past or Recent Trauma or Abuse
    • Establishing and Maintaining Healthy Boundaries
    • Family dynamics
    • Life Transitions
    • Career Planning
    • Health and Wellness
    • Fears
    • Relationship Issues
    • Emotional Regulation
    • Burn-out
    • Career Planning
I believe people are innately searching to lead the best lives they can, with the tools they have. I work with adults, children and teens, in group, couples, and individual settings. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to see if we would be a good match. It would be my honour to accompany you on your journey. I am fluent in English and Polish.
