"My husband and I can't say enough good things about the counseling we received. Meda is insightful and very good at bringing out the best in both of us. When our marriage was in trouble, it was the counseling we received that brought us back to even better than before. We learned how to communicate effectively, how to compromise when needed and how to listen to each other. And in doing so, we love each other better. We looked forward to each session and always went home with new tools for a better marriage. I would, and have, recommended Meda to anybody who needs personal counseling, marriage counseling, and family counseling. This was the best thing we could have done for our marriage and ourselves"

Each person is unique and their needs different therefore many different counselling techniques are used. Most often cognitive-behavioral therapy is used. In addition to these therapies, we also use solution-focused, client-centered therapies and music and prayer, (when requested). At times we may use a variety of therapies in a type of integrative technique to more fully addressed the client's needs.

About Meda Weir, BSC., RPC, MPCC
I grew up in rural Ontario on a small hobby farm and enjoy the love and support of family and a tight-knit community. Church activities were central to our life and lots of interaction with family, neighbours and friends. I watch my mom reach out to those in need, especially single moms, and people who fell on hard times. The love and caring connections I saw demonstrated were central to my life and certainly each experience made a profound impact on who I am today. I believe it was because we took time to care for one another that I learned how important it is. So throughout my life when struggles, sickness and separation came I learned to reach out for help and support and perhaps that is why I was eventually led to take up Counselling because I know how important it is to be responsive in times of need.
As a wife, mom and founder of MOMS Canada (A charity to support since moms) I am aware of how easily we can lose ourselves in the everyday challenges we all face.
Like the pieces of a puzzle God has put my life together and gifted me in ways that sometimes I don't always understand but when a client comes to talk with me I enter into their world and give them my best.
I am so privileged to be able use the skills and knowledge I have to provide a safe and comfortable place that clients can share and know that I am listening and affirming their issues, challenges and struggles.
As I enter into another year of serving, it is my hope that each one will experience the best life has to offer and when difficulties arise as they usually do, you will reach out for help.
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
