    About Verve Counselling

    Verve (n): energy, strength, enthusiasm.

    In my clinical work, people who are dealing with trauma, anxiety and depression often describe their experience as feeling stuck or having lost themselves.

    My goal at Verve Counselling is to help you restore your energy and strength so you can get back to the things that matter to you the most.

    About Vicki McCabe

    Hi, my name is Vicki McCabe and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in Langley, British Columbia.

    I work with people whose challenges are getting in the way of their work performance, relationships, or health so they can regain balance in their lives and feel like themselves again.

    I specialize in working with adults dealing with:

    • trauma,
    • anxiety,
    • depression,
    • life transitions, and
    • personal growth.

    My Approach to Counselling

    I focus on building a safe relationship with you where you can feel heard and understood. I prioritize building a connection by finding out what your therapy goals are and getting your feedback on a regular basis. From there, my goal is to provide the tools you need to take steps towards feeling better.

    Others have told me that as a counsellor, I am warm, calm, attentive and reflective. I hope that I can use my knowledge and skills to help you in your situation.

Some of these roles include Outreach Counsellor at Options Community Services, Family Facilitator at Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, Intern Counsellor at Fraser Health Authority, Coach at the Canadian Mental Health Association, and as a Clinical Counsellor in private practice.

    Why I Love My Work

    I see counselling as both an art and a science. The science keeps me accountable in using evidence-based practices, while the art side requires me to be creative in how I use my knowledge and skills in working with you – because every person’s situation is unique.

    Counselling can be an opportunity to heal past wounds, and to reclaim choices in the present where choices had been missing in the past. Personally, I have found this to be one of the most powerful experiences and valuable gains in counselling.

    I am drawn to this work because I value meaningful connections that can make a difference in people’s lives. I consider it an honour to work with you on your journey.
