Gentle Lion Counselling  

Services - Fees - Hours


I specialize in counselling with people living with chronic conditions or chronic pain and their family and friends.

I counsel with individuals, couples, families and groups, adults and youth.

Assistance with medical and insurance forms is available for people living with chronic conditions or chronic pain by a colleague, Sally C. Martin, who has a Masters of Social Work degree. Sally has extensive experience in working with people with disabilities and will join me in the counselling session to help complete forms. The cost is the same as for a regular counselling session.

I am available to provide presentations for professionals or the general public to your group or organization on such topics as chronic pain, pain management, providing support to people living with chronic pain or depression. I have presented locally and nationally.

Free Consultation

An initial consultation of up to 30 minutes - in person or by telephone - is free.

You can use a consultation to help you decide whether my style of counselling is the right fit for you, and for us to determine whether I have knowledge and experience that can be helpful for you. You can also use the consultation to discuss any discomfort you might be feeling about using counselling as a support for yourself.

You can learn more about my approach to counselling by clicking on the About and Counselling with Gareth sections of this website.


Sessions are usually 60 minutes.

My fee is $100.00 for a full 60 minute session.

Fees are payable by cheque or cash at the beginning of each session.

Please speak with me about possible alternative arrangements.


Currently I am available Mondays at the Richmond office (11331 Coppersmith Way Richmond) and Tuesdays at the Vancouver office (943 West Broadway Vancouver).
