Heather Ferguson, Registered Clinical Counsellor for Cowichan Valley Families

Do you want new skills and understanding to help you better support the children in your life?  I offer individual, family and professional workshops and counselling services inspired by the work of Dr. Gordon Neufeld, with offerings that span from toddlerhood to the teenage years.  Whether you are struggling with parenting your toddler or teenager, or are simply ready for some fresh ideas and perspective, you will find a counselling or course option to meet your needs.  Based at Matraea Centre in Duncan, I serve the Cowichan Valley and Southern Vancouver Island families and professionals.

I work in the territory of Quw’utsun Mutiimuhw – Cowichan Peoples – whose lands were taken and colonized by Canada in a host of actions that have not been rectified. The Hul’qumi’num Treaty GroupCowichan Tribes, Halalt First Nation, Ts’uubaa-asatx First Nation, Lyackson First Nation, and Penelakut Tribe – continues unresolved treaty talks with British Columbia and Canada. All events I hold acknowledge the rights of Indigenous people (First Nations, Metis, Inuit) and the ongoing wound and injustice our communities must mend. My work supports the full decolonization of our society and reparations for harms done.
