Stephen Vance

EMDR Basic Training

Meadowbrook Counselling Associates

Stephen first trained and worked in software engineering (B. Math in Computer Science), but changed careers around 25 years ago to work in counselling and community caring work in a cross-cultural context, including living in China while studying to become conversationally fluent in Mandarin.

Stephen is an empathetic listener who has experience working with people struggling with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, damaged relationships, burnout, grief and trauma. He is able to provide a safe and supportive counselling experience in which his clients can acquire strategies for change and growth.

Stephen has been married for around 20 years, and is raising two children, each with their unique temperaments and skills. He also cherishes the memory of one son who died as a young baby. In his spare time, Stephen enjoys reading, as well as down time with his family playing games and exploring the outdoors up north.
