About Oakhill Counselling & Mediation Services
At Oakhill Counselling & Mediation Services, we are dedicated to empowering individuals and families on their journey of healing and personal growth. With a compassionate and client-centered approach, our experienced team of therapists and mediators provides a safe and supportive environment for transformative change. Whether it’s through counseling, mediation, or group services, we are committed to fostering positive outcomes and promoting well-being within our community.
Oakhill Counselling and Mediation Services was launched in 1988 by Colleen Gibson and Beverley Kendall. Both women were counsellors who had a heart for helping individuals, couples, and families. Their vision was to create a space that fostered healing, wellness, and growth and to invite other counsellors and psychologists to join them in that vision. Over the years, Oakhill has grown to include up to 30 professionals providing therapy for individuals, couples, and families from a variety of evidence based models to ensure you get the best care possible.
Our vision is to see individuals and families improve relationships, make healthy choices, discover resilience and improve their well being.
Our mission is to provide the most competent, responsive, flexible and diverse services needed to address the client’s concerns.
We believe everything starts and ends with you. Our focus is to help you achieve what you want to achieve and to use whatever tools are at our disposal to help you get there.
We operate at the highest of ethical practice and are transparent in that endeavour. We believe in “saying what we do and doing what we say.”
As a wise person once said, “No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” The process of helping starts and ends with the foundation of compassion that develops a safe, trusting relationship from which to explore and discovery solutions neither of us could discover alone.
As wounded healers, we have struggled on our own and bring everything we are to the helping relationship. None of us are “perfect” or ‘have all the answers.” Instead, we leverage our own humanness to your advantage to develop strategies that are uniquely your own.
As helpers, we understand that personal and professional development is a process, not a destination. As professionals, we are committed to lifelong learning that informs our ability to help. We are also tenacious about our personal development. Healing wounds, evolving and transforming ourselves and our relationships that reflect our integrity and commitment to the helping process.
