Ray St-Amour

EMDR Basic Training

Maray Counselling

I offer counselling and therapy with individuals and couples in person servicing the Dufferin, Caledon and Wellington County area as well as remotely with telehealth throughout Ontario.

I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in psychology and sociology and my B. Ed. I have my BSW from York University and my MSW in the clinical stream from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am continuously taking courses to learn new techniques and keep up to date with the field of EMDR and psychotherapy. I am a Registered Social Worker and am also registered with the Ontario Association of Social Workers.

I specialize in trauma and I hold my Clinical Traumatologist Training certificate as well as her Compassionate Fatigue training from the Traumatology Institute, Toronto. I have also completed my training in EMDR. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I teach my clients the tools that they need to take the steps needed to improve and overcome their challenges, may they be stress, anxiety, depression or PTSD. I also uses Emotion Focused Therapy, narrative therapy as well as working always from a strength based perspective. I have my level 3 of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I use a mixture of various therapy modes as she believes that each client is unique and may respond in a different way to various therapy modalities. EMDR is one of those modalities that I have added to my repertoire and use successfully with my clients.

I have worked with individuals and youth in various settings for over 30 years. I have also worked in the field of woman abuse, in the mental health field as a Mobile After Hours Crisis Worker as well as a clinician for a non-profit organization. I have extensive experience working with individuals and couples that fit under the ?lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgendered-queer-questioning? umbrella.

I am passionate about helping clients reach their full potential. I am genuine and transparent in my approach. My goal is to help her clients attain their full potential. My goal is to see my clients improve and to be able to have a full life without the issues that have brought you to my door. I understand that small steps are important and help the client fine-tune their coping methods and reach their goals.

Ray is francophone and can counsel clients in either French or English.
