Kristy Higgins

Registered Therapeutic Counsellor

As a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor and Supervisor, I believe every person is the expert of their life. I provide a safe environment where people can process and gain the insights and awareness they are seeking. Many of us feel trapped in shame, fear, loneliness, anger, and hurt. These feelings are often deep-rooted and have not been recognized, acknowledged and shared with someone non-judgmental. Although well-intentioned, family members, friends and co-workers offer advice and support in ways that inhibit our healing process. As we share our life stories with someone objective we are able to heal ourselves.

Working with couples and individuals to heal sexual, mental, emotional and physical abuse, infidelity, codependency, addiction, loss & grief, traumatic experiences, communication conflicts, low self worth, anxiety and depression, I see many clients walk out the doors with a renewed sense of self and purpose. I operate a private counselling practice, Therapeutic Life Counselling, out of the Axis office in Vernon, BC.
