We respectfully acknowledge that Bonfire Counselling takes place on unceded Coast Salish Territory; the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
The Unceded Coast Salish Territories are a unique place in the World: a constellation of diverse cultures huddled in the rugged natural beauty of the West Coast. At Bonfire, we offer our skills and teachings to support these communities. We want to stoke a collective sense of gathering, by creating a place where people from all over can come to hear, be heard, and from there, transform.
For many, counselling carries a negative connotation and a very specific, constrained image. At Bonfire, we offer the best of counselling- evidence-based, client centered therapy- with a unique commitment to provide services that complement our clients’ lifestyles, and to bring therapy out into the real world, where it can be more vital. We want to help bridge the gap between mental and physical health by enabling our clients to access psychological support in the same way they might consult a fitness trainer.
Our commitment is to offer engaging, accessible services that are as diverse as the people we work with. In spite of the mosaic of culture and technology that lies embraced in the West Coast, we live in a part of the world that has long suffered the strains of emotional, even existential, dislocation. Our aim is that Bonfire will enrich our entire community, feeding feelings of attachment while helping to restructure the systems that engender emptiness and suffering.
Amidst the wild, pounding rains and rivers, the deep greens of the rain-forest, and the delicate vibrancy of the Spring’s blossoms, we invite people from all over to gather at the Bonfire- a dynamic, elemental force that insights both wonder and community. We wish to heal the pains of our collective past and build a home that is rich and whole. Through empirically-validated therapy, as well as a deep sense of authenticity, intuition and adventure, we are here to offer a diversity of tools towards the healing and collective actualization of all the peoples of our community.
Welcome to the Bonfire.
