Trish Rapske Counsellor

Trish Rapske, MAIS, RCC, DVATI, RCAT

Trish, as a counsellor and art therapist, has worked in the public and alternate school systems supporting children and youth one-to-one who have experienced anxiety, anger, sexual and physical abuse, self-harming tendencies, behavioural difficulties, separation anxiety, depression, selective mutism, grief and family transition (separation, divorce, foster care). She has also run groups with adults in various medical and residential settings in the Lower Mainland focusing on grief and loss, addiction recovery (harm reduction and abstinence-based models), life skills, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship conflict challenges and end of life care within the palliative care setting.

As an artist and art therapist, Trish believes that creativity can manifest in many forms (crafting, textile-work, jewelry-making, cooking, photography, music-making, stop-motion or film, dancing, singing, painting, sculpting etc.). These expressions can help us externalize emotions, desires, hopes and intentions for ourselves that we might not otherwise be able to express adequately with words. Creativity can bridge the gap between the verbal and non-verbal and facilitate communication within the counselling process. As we externalize dialogue and inner conflict we are offered new perspectives and opportunities for change and growth.
