Registered Clinical Counselling

From holistic restoration to performance optimization, our Registered Clinical Counsellor Kendra Pomfret provides clinical counselling, sport and mental performance services to a diverse group of individuals (16+) and couples. Common mental health concerns and challenges clients see Kendra for include, but are not limited to:

  • social and performance anxiety

  • interpersonal trauma/abuse

Kendra uses a strength-based, collaborative approach to counselling, maintaining a consistent appreciation for clients as the experts in their own life. Her skillset is helping you uncover your pre-existing strengths and repurposing them in combination with evidence based practices to support new or more proactive ways of coping with discomfort you’re experiencing and/or the change(s) you’re seeking. Given the diversity of each person’s presenting concerns and desired outcomes, Kendra draws from a range of therapeutic modalities. These include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
  • Solution Focussed Therapy (SFT)
