Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore ~Andre Gide

Like a coastal zone, there is always a push and pull to life. At Coastal MIND Counselling and Education, our goal is to help you develop the healthy connections, curiosity, and courage to navigate a fulfilling life, despite daunting waters.

Through honest and empathetic engagement, we help you connect with your resourcefulness, challenge unhelpful habits, and invigorate your mind.

Your mind is dynamic and powerful. At Coastal Mind we harness the amazing capabilities of the brain to enable changes that enhance well-being and fulfillment in life.

No lying on the couch, answering questions to the ceiling, that’s not our way! Sometimes, we take the clinic outside, letting the natural beauty of our forested city by the sea open our hearts and minds.

We are enthusiastic about our profession and grateful to be constantly learning: from life, from each other, from our clients.

Let us help you find a way through adversity, find hope in the face of life’s challenges…find both vigour and calm. It’s time to shift old ways of thinking. It’s time to exercise your Coastal MIND.
