Iriny is a fantastic therapist who really takes the time to understand your needs and who helps you break your issues down into manageable pieces. She knows when to push a little to bring forth breakthroughs and shows great empathy when needed. Her home-based office is cozy and comfortable making your session feel less clinical. I highly recommend Serene Counselling.

Iriny has taught me different tools to navigate through issues as well as every day life.. She is knowledgeable, kind and I love her philosophy that people are not broken we are just raw diamonds that need gentle polishing!!! Her non abrasive way of speaking the truth and learning to be kind to ourselves is truly inspiring.

Have you encountered life experiences that have left you feeling sad, anxious, frustrated or discouraged?    
You may be questioning whether you are living your idea of a meaningful life.  You may have noticed that sometimes your interactions and your emotional responses are not working in your favour.  Do you feel that you need to find new ways of improving your relationships? Perhaps you are wondering how you can change. These questions and realizations are the first steps on your journey towards healing. 

I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Orleans in French, English or Arabic. In my private practice I help my clients address a variety of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship boundaries, communication and intimacy, self-esteem, identity, career changes, grief, spirituality, and life transitions.

Throughout the therapeutic process I place an emphasis on creating a safe and compassionate space where we can work together towards your goals in a collaborative fashion. I always strive to build a therapeutic relationship based on empathy, curiosity, and support. In conceptualizing the human being I utilize a holistic approach, where I take into consideration the mind, body, and spirit.

As an integrative therapist, I draw from various theories of psychological development and evidence-based therapeutic approaches to inform my practice. Such theories and approaches are the Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural, Mindfulness-based, experiential and somatic, Logotherapy, and Solution Focused approaches. For further details regarding these approaches please look under services.

It would be an honour to accompany you on your journey to healing. Together we can take steps towards change, peacefulness, serenity, and joy.

Ensemble on pourra prendre des étapes vers le changement, paix, sérénité et joie.

  • I am a Registered Psychotherapist and I am a member in The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. 

  • Once your insurance coverage ends, you may ask your psychotherapist for a sliding scale that is suitable to your income to continue therapy until your new year coverage gets renewed.  This ensures that you continue receiving the counselling and psychotherapy services you may need even if your insurance does not cover.

  • In cases where your insurance plan does not cover all the session, or if the client is not eligible for insurance coverage, therapy services can be claimed as a medical expense for income tax return.
