“To listen is to lean in, softly, with a willingness to be changed by what we hear.”
Hi, my name is Arianna Clarke-Watts and I am a registered clinical counsellor (RCC) based out of North Vancouver, BC. I grew up with a strong connection to the outdoors on Vancouver Island, and natural elements continue to keep me connected to my healing work. I feel very passionate about the work that I do, and believe strongly in the healing power my clients possess within themselves.
As far back as I can remember, I've been curious about and drawn to people. In 2012 I completed my yoga teacher training certificate and began down a path that opened many doors on a personal and professional level. I hold a BA in psychology and an MA in counselling psychology and have continued my education through trainings in holistic methods of healing. I work from a body/mind/spirit perspective and will help you become familiar with these aspects of yourself so you have the opportunity to lead a balanced and full life.
I have worked in the non-profit sector for years, as both a counsellor and advocate for human rights. I take a person-centered approach and welcome clients of all ages, cultural backgrounds, faiths and sexual identities and orientations.
In order to uphold a high ethical standard of care and continuing competency, I receive monthly supervision by Masters and PhD therapists and am a member of the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. To find out more:
