About Fiona Walker

I moved with my family from the U.K to Kelowna in 2007. In my 20 years of field experience, I have worked with many individuals and their families under different settings both in the U.K and Canada. My experience includes working in child and adolescent in-patient psychiatric units, adult and youth community, working with mental health teams as a counsellor/therapist and intake worker, youth counsellor and as an eating disorder clinician for youth.

I have qualified as a nurse in 2000, graduating from the University of Central England, Birmingham. I am both, a Registered Nurse (RN) and Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) in British Columbia. I also hold a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy/Counselling. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors and a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

Everyone faces setbacks in life. Personal issues, family problems, financial troubles, death or trauma can all disrupt our normal routines and leave us uncertain in our lives. When life makes your take a step back, you take 2 steps forward. This is what gives purpose and meaning to life. Life is tough but you are tougher!

My Expertise Include

Therapy for relationship issues of individuals and families

Co-facilitating therapy and psychoeducational groups

Providing tailored intervention programs that effectively integrate a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches such as Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

I have a firm believe that working with children, teenagers, young adults and their families requires a unique and special approach. During my 18 years of field experience, I have developed some unique methods that let me effectively deal with the young pupil. My approach is very integrative and systematic and I have extensive training in dealing with young people who are particularly not very forthcoming. I have achieved all this success because I am passionate about helping younger people and their families.
