Our Counselling Team

Tanya Bedford

Since early in adolescence, I loved to journey alongside people as they worked through hurts and challenges in life.  I was also, for awhile, fascinated with the science of Engineering. Because I loved both science and the humanities, I first graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and worked within the field of oil and gas for 5 years as a project manager. I grew aware that my fascination with Engineering science had waned but my gift for journeying with people had not. So I completed a Masters in Counselling Psychology at Trinity Western University.   Since then, I have strived to be present through meaningful and transformative experiences in counselling clients.

My specialization has grown through the years in unique therapies for dissociation, trauma and abuse, depression and anxiety and attachment struggles.  These therapies include EMDR, OEI, CBT and some neurofeedback. I am most influenced by existentialism and Virginia Satir's model of transformational Family systems therapy.

Susan Lee

Susan (Sue) Lee has lived and worked in Prince George since 1997. She can provide counselling sessions Tuesdays 9am-6pm for individuals (teens and adults) and couples utilizing body-based and experiential techniques for relaxation, emotion regulation and safety and stabilization of self.

In collaboration with clients, she likes to work from a variety of therapeutic modalities such as EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing), EFT (emotion-focused therapy) and CBT (cognitive behavioral) that are trauma informed, experiential, solution-focused and empowering. Her hope is that people with leave therapy with a better understanding of themselves and their experiences and equipped with personal strategies to manage stress, mood, addictions, or complicated relationships.
