with Michelle Grieve

The wholistic philosophy is to nurture and nourish the entire being – the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. It doesn’t matter where we start, as long as we also include the other areas. 

When it comes to mental health, a wholistic approach considers how a person’s well-being is impacted by the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical parts of the self. At Wholistic Counselling and Wellness, we provide counselling and therapy services from the whole-person perspective, as we believe that healing takes place when all parts of our self are seen and cared for.

Hi, I'm Michelle

There are many reasons why people decide to engage in therapy. Maybe you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or disconnected from yourself and others. Maybe you have experienced a great loss or change in your life. Or perhaps you are a cycle breaker, and after years of intergenerational trauma you are ready to say “this ends with me”. Maybe you feel it’s time to step into your full potential, to live a life filled with meaning and purpose. Whatever your reasons may be, they are valid and important, and I am honoured that you are here. 

I use an integrative approach to therapy, drawing on evidence-based interventions and alternative and complimentary approaches for healing. My therapeutic framework includes Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Mindfulness. I incorporate psycho-education, therapeutic art, guided visualization, imagery, and energy-transfer-healing such as therapeutic touch. I am a Certified Trauma Recovery Counsellor, Certified Grief Support Counsellor, and an Advanced Reiki Practitioner.

I received my Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Northern British Columbia, where I specialized in working with Rural, Remote, and Northern populations. As a lifelong rural resident myself, I have a deep understanding of the unique circumstances we are faced with living in small communities. There are many aspects of rural life that prevent people from getting the mental health support they need: mental health stigma, confidentiality concerns, long waitlists, extended travel distances for specialized services, and so on. I am grateful to offer mental health services to our community and surrounding areas through confidential in-person, telephone, and video sessions.
