Evidence-Based Counselling Strategies
By leaning on evidence-based therapies and blending elements of life coaching strategies and learned experiences, Cyndy will tailor her counselling to help you gain insights for your personal growth and find the right next step to take.
Cyndy has overcome so much inner turmoil in her life as a Christian supporting a loved one through addiction. She understands the complexities of trying to hide the negatives from those around her. She also knows how it feels to have that someone you can be completely open with because you know they won’t judge you as you are working through your mental and emotional struggles.
Flexible Counselling Support
While Cyndy is based in Oliver BC, with the wonderful support of online technology, you will be able to access holistic counselling from anywhere you feel comfortable. This includes virtual counselling with an internet connection or phone counselling if the internet isn’t available. So all you need to do is find your “safe space”, get comfortable, and prepare to move towards relief and happiness.
Why Choose Cyndy Ramsay for Your Counselling Needs?
You want to feel better and we want to help you find your authentic happiness…
Cyndy’s desire to help others through counselling came through real life and personal experiences. While struggling to support a loved one with substance abuse issues, Cyndy started to reach out for support from a caring counsellor. This was the first step towards finding her purpose.
After this, Cyndy sought further support from other counsellors, specifically around substance affected family counselling, Alanon, her local Pastor and Church group, and by doing mental wellness programs.

- Letting go of a long-term addiction

How long are the counselling sessions?
Counselling sessions last 50-60 minutes. We can accommodate a longer session if you feel you would like more time to talk and process (fees adjusted per half hour). Please just let us know prior to your session so we can allow extra time.
How much are the counselling fees?
Counselling sessions are offered at $150 per 50 minutes.
Payment is expected by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org at the time of each session and a receipt will be issued after funds have been received.
If your therapy is covered by an insurance policy, you are responsible to pay the fee and then seek reimbursement from the insurance company or EAP (Employee Assistance Program).
What if I can't make it to my counselling appointment?
Your counselling appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapist’s schedule that prevents her from providing support for other clients in need. For this reason, we require 48 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment in order to accommodate the waitlist.
Clients who provide less than 48 hours notice may be charged a 50% cancellation fee.
Clients who miss their appointment without notice may be responsible for a 100% no-show fee.
Please note that insurance companies do not reimburse for missed sessions.
Are sessions covered by my benefits?
This depends on your insurance policy. Please check the wording. We will issue you with a receipt and you can submit this to your provider.
Do you offer payment options for counselling sessions?
I offer a limited number of slots for clients who are struggling financially to afford therapy. Please get in touch today for a complimentary consultation to see how I can help you prioritise your wellbeing and make therapy accessible for you.
What if I'm in crisis now?

After many years of being a mother who gave everything for her husband and children, Monique found herself feeling miserable, run down and depressed for the first time in her life. She had left behind all the things that made her feel happy.
Monique sought out support to help find out why she was feeling so sad when she had so much to be grateful for. Using finely tuned listening skills and asking the right questions, we explored how Monique could increase her sense of self-worth and begin moving towards more positive behaviours for the future. She started exercising again, seeing family and friends she had been “hiding from”, and she started saying no to the things that didn’t make her feel good.
Monique is now feeling happier than she has in years and is starting new adventures. Plus, this has made her enjoy being a part of her family again.
I wish to further acknowledge and honour the ancestral guardians of the lands and waterways of what we call Canada: Métis, First Nations, and Inuit peoples and communities.
Today, many Indigenous peoples continue to call these lands home and act as its stewards; and this responsibility extends to all people to share and care for this land for generations to come.
