About Me

Passionate Personal Counsellor

Meet Celeste:

As an institutionally Certified Counsellor, I am able to work with you to uncover the depth of your uncomfortable feelings, and provide you with the tools and techniques to live a successful and fully balanced life. I have been working to support families and individuals in Surrey, White Rock, Vancouver and the Fraser Valley to achieve this goal. It is my goal to help you to live a fulfilling life that brings you success in your friendships, relationships, fitness, health, self-esteem and personal performance goals.


I believe that everyone has the ability to change when given the right support, tools and guidance. I find it very rewarding to see clients move from lifelong patterns that are uncomfortable and unsuccessful, into new positive ways of being.

Whether it’s driving free of fear, walking over shaky suspension bridges, speaking in public, enjoying relationships in new ways or whatever, I am able to quickly assess what you need and create a specialized program to move toward lasting change.


My counselling style is practical, effective and compassionate. I believe in providing my clients with a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment where they can feel at ease to discuss their problems and issues. I also believe in quickly finding the tools and techniques that can help give clients immediate relief and begin the process toward positive and effective change.

I feel it’s important to understand what to expect during the counselling process. In our first sessions, you will begin by sharing your current experience of life, and how you would envision your life if you were able to move past your negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Following this, I will take the information you provide, and design a realistic and effective plan to achieve your goals, incorporating any number of appropriate and useful techniques based on my training, education and experience.

I will fully explain the suggested approach and answer any questions you may have so you know what to expect and are comfortable with beginning the process of change in a safe and comfortable way.

Because my focus is always on finding the right techniques to help you feel better right away, I find that many issues resolve in as little as four to six sessions, although it always depends on your specific set of circumstances.

Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. It is a fact that you have a criminal conviction. My counselling sessions will help you learn about acceptance and how to turn your negative past into something positive. You will then be prepared for whatever life may throw at you.
