Practicum Counsellor, Nanaimo
Melissa Davies is a practicum counsellor at Island Integrated Counselling as she completes her Master of Counselling at Athabasca University.

In Vernon she operated her own holistic practice helping clients recover from stress-related illnesses and chronic pain. She is looking forward to applying her therapeutic counselling skills to clients struggling from mental health issues.
Melissa’s approach with clients is strength-based, collaborative, culturally inclusive, flexible, and focused on self-awareness. She approaches issues as an opportunity to grow and find deeper meaning. She views her clients as a connected being, not just a sum of symptoms. She is excited to have the opportunity to help her clients have a greater sense of peace and wellness in their lives.
