Counselling is the process of meeting with a registered professional who has trained in the field of psychology to help you reduce negative symptoms, improve mental well-being and develop greater self awareness of yourself.
At One Life, we believe that counselling is also a great opportunity to develop a growth mindset, improve your overall relationships with others and most of all use the therapy room as a journey of self discovery. We believe that when you have greater self awareness, tools to help you relate better in the world and when you really get to know yourself on the deepest of levels that you can live a life with more fulfillment and meaning.
Counselling is the process of going inside yourself and getting to know who you are, getting to know how you interact with others and gaining insight into how to react, make decisions and hold yourself back. We believe that when we apply more awareness we have the opportunity to choose a different path for ourselves.
The counselling and therapy room is a place dedicated to support your inner growth and mental well-being. Our qualified counsellors in Calgary are compassionate, easy to talk with and will always have your best interest in front of mind during your counselling sessions.
Think of your counselling sessions as an opportunity to put the stresses and demands of everyday life to the side and just focus on you. Your therapist is there to really get to know you and help guide you towards your goals.
Many people come to counseling searching to improve their mental wellbeing, their relationships and to find solutions to the challenges in their lives. In counselling, the therapy room is about you having a safe and entirely non-biased space to discover how to do that within yourself.
Counselling at One Life comes in the form of psychotherapy, marriage counselling and coaching. In your sessions you will get the chance to talk about your feelings/thoughts on different situations, all with the intention to help you feel better about who you are and what you would like to become within.
Sometimes that journey within is a self discovery process of understanding your beliefs better. Sometimes it is understanding how you sabotage yourself and get in your own way. Many other times, it is learning to handle anxiety or depression better.
What ever your challenge, think of counselling as an investment into yourself. You get to know yourself on the deepest of levels, how you think, how your emotions work within and you get the chance to develop a greater relationship with yourself.
The counselling services are going to be with a therapist that is non-judgmental, non-biased and highly qualified. Choosing a therapist in Calgary that has a speciality in the challenge you are facing is always a good idea. You want to see a marriage counsellor that has training in marriage counselling or if it is dealing with trauma, you will want a trauma trained therapist.
We offer individual counselling, marriage counselling and life coaching.
We have several well-regarded types of approaches to our counselling in Calgary at One Life.
Seeing the same psychologist or psychotherapist is ideal for long term results when you begin, but there are many reasons why you might change a therapist.
If you begin couples counselling with us and decide later that you want to see an individual therapist to work on something on your own is always a good idea.
You might find that your therapist is great for helping you with your anxiety and want to try one our coaches out for leadership coaching. Once you decide to work with One Life, we are going to partner with you to help you with your life goals.
If the therapist that you are first assigned does not feel like a fit, that is perfectly okay and sometimes happens. We can assign you a different therapist and want you to reach out to us to let us know about your preference.
Counselling is often described as an inner journey and process of self discovery to help an individual or couples with understanding themselves more deeply and learning how to improve their self mastery.

Depression can be debilitating and can negatively influence a person’s relationships, work and outlook on life. Counselling is a great treatment option for working with an individual’s depression and can greatly improve their symptoms, mental well-being and give them tools to deal with depression moods easier.
Many times, counselling is either treating situational depression, which is when something happens in our life that influences a depression state, like losing a loved one, losing a job or a relationship break up. Sometimes, depression is chronic and needs on-going treatment to help.
In counselling at One Life we help our clients with giving them the necessary emotional support and space to process their feelings and thoughts and we encourage new strategies and tools to help improve depression symptoms.
Anxiety counselling in Calgary with One Life is a great way to learn how to manage your anxiety better. There are countless things in our world that can contribute to triggering our anxiety to take off within and learning how to bring our worrying mind into wise mind is the goal in anxiety counselling.
We don’t take your anxiety away in therapy, in fact getting better is not the solution we prescribe. Instead, we encourage you to have a different relationship with yourself, with the way you interact with yourself, others and the world around you.
Anxiety is just a manifestation of your mind/body system telling you something. Learning to listen to yourself deeply and learning to access your inner calmness and wisdom is an essential part of therapy.
We teach you how to manage the parts of yourself that worry, get anxious and over think situations. That is going to happen and rather than trying to repress that side of yourself, we want to empower you to connect with yourself deeply and understand what is happening within you.
Anxiety happens to most people and if you have a good understanding of what is happening within you and have options and strategies of how to get yourself back into a state of being that is calm, connected and wise, you will have so much control in your life.
