Welcome

Hello, thanks for stopping by! When it comes to counselling it’s important to find someone who is good fit for you. I may or may not be that person! Learning a bit about me might help you figure this out or reaching out to share what you are looking for might also help. I am okay not being the right fit, what is important is that you get what you need out of counselling; I can always make suggestions for other people who might be more suited to what you are looking for!

Malaya Alexander Poiesis Counselling and Consulting

About Me.

I am a registered social worker (MSW) having spent much of my professional life supporting children, youth, and young women in various capacities including mental health counselling, program facilitation; community development; crisis and trauma response; and child and family advocacy. I am passionate about supporting people as they try to find hope and healing in the dark spaces of their lives. I believe that people hold an incredible capacity for healing and deserve support and guidance along the way. My hope is that I can be one of those supports. I work hard to listen and respond thoughtfully and non-judgementally. Creating a safe environment is really important to me and I am happy to hear from clients about what I can do to help create this. I bring expertise to sessions but also recognize that you are the expert on your own life and healing. I am here to witness and support you while providing guidance when needed. I am a creative thinker, enjoy connecting people to resources, and talking about how our personal experiences relate to society as a whole. I try to be approachable and like to throw in a bit of humour to my work when I can.
