Dielle Driedger has nearly completed her MA in Counselling degree and is excited to be joining Conexus as an intern to complete the internship requirements of her program.
Before joining the counselling profession, Dielle and her family spent a number of years living and working in Europe. This experience gave her a new appreciation for the diversity of cultures and backgrounds in the world and the importance of taking the time to understand a person’s culture and life experiences. She tries to take a holistic approach and look at all aspects of life and wellbeing - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
Dielle believes each client has a unique story and perspective with unique strengths and challenges. She is committed to working with each person to find the path of healing that is right for them, with empathy and acceptance. Dielle’s counselling approach is informed by attachment theory, cognitive behavioural therapies, feminist therapy in addition to others, however this is always in consideration with a client’s goals and needs.
In her free time, Dielle loves to read, attempts to grow plants, and pursues a variety of creative pastimes. She is delighted to have this opportunity to join the team at Conexus and looks forward to meeting and working with new clients.
