FAYE ARCHER WILSON​​​
MA, Registered Provisional Psychologist

“Relationships in which you can genuinely care and be cared for. Meaningful roles that challenge you and allow you to contribute to the world around you. Freedom to be curious, to explore, and to experience.”

I think of mental wellness as the ability to love, work, and play.  I think of counselling as a place where people can identify and address interpersonal, emotional, and thought patterns that are getting in the way of wellness.  There are reasons you came to be how and where you are now, and you have strengths that will help you.  Counselling can be used to better understand who you are, determine what you need, make a plan for what is next, and learn or refine skills for living a more full, balanced life with yourself and others.  I am here to listen when you speak, and when you can’t.  To follow your lead in what you want out of counselling and life, and also to guide you in ways to get there.

For individuals, couples, and families, I use emotion-focused therapies as my base.  Emotions, or their absence, are indicators that tell us about what is important, give us clues about what we need, and fuel our motivation to act.  I use Emotion-Focused Family Therapy and the Gottman Couples Method to empower couples and families to practise shifting the ways they connect with each other within the safety of each session.  For individual therapy work with youth and adults, I also integrate cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, mindfulness, narrative, and art therapy techniques as needed.  I am trained in trauma-focused and trauma-informed approaches to support individuals who have experienced or are currently experiencing relationship disruptions or maltreatment that is impacting who and how they are in the present.

After earning my Behavioural Science B.A. at Ambrose University in Calgary, I went on to complete a Counselling Psychology M.Ed. at the University of Toronto.  I have experience having previously worked at Distress Centre Calgary, Eastside Family Centre, and Wood’s Homes’ Street Services and Exceptional Needs programs.
