Heather Pringle has completed her Master of Arts in Counselling at Providence Theological Seminary. Because of her early and growing interest in social sciences, Heather completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Calgary.
About six years ago, while working for a social service organization, Heather realized how drawn she was to connecting with others. She enjoyed compassionately listening to their stories and she decided to pursue a vocation in counselling.
Heather has over six years of experience in support work and crisis counselling from a variety of settings with youth, individuals, and families. She has experience with youth mentorship, case management, and supervision within non-profit organizations.
Heather believes that every person possesses purpose and the power for growth. That makes being a counsellor as an honour. She greatly values the bravery and hope clients show by seeking counselling. She believes therapy provides a unique environment for clients to be heard and to view their stories from different angles. Heather believes authentic living can be encouraged or injured in the context of relationships. She therefore aims to provide a therapeutic environment that is safe and nurturing. She appreciates the power of self-reflection and strives to help clients gain greater awareness of themselves and their relationships. Heather values non-judgemental listening and a therapeutic stance that assists clients to grow in reaching their own conclusions.
Occasionally, Heather insightfully blogs for us...and we always learn something when she does!
