ah-ha! Counselling & Consulting

Al Zwiers is a Registered Social Worker offering individual, couples and family counselling and consulting services in the greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. My practice is open for everyone, with a special focus upon substance use and addictions issues, healthy sexuality and relationships, and sexual orientation and gender identity.

Many of the people I work with are dealing with issues of:

  • substance use, addictions and compulsive behaviours
  • sexual health and exploration of sexuality
  • identity, self-acceptance and self-worth
  • communication and relationships
  • chronic illness and health concerns
  • body image and eating disorders
  • depression, anxiety and isolation
  • grief, loss and life transitions

My office is located in the heritage area of Yaletown in Vancouver, BC. I am also available for telephone or online counselling sessions for people who are not local or who may prefer that mode of service.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques drawing from diverse clinical training, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Clinical Hypnosis. My practice is grounded in the principles of structural social work.

I view my role as helping you:

  • get to the heart of your situation
  • identify areas in your life you want to change
  • explore the relationships to your core issues
  • discover your inner strengths and resources
  • create solutions which meet your realities

My goal is to help you to enact positive and lasting change, as well as to help you strive towards your personal definition of a healthy, balanced and fulfilling life of integrity and pride.

I offer both a regular 60 minute individual and family counselling session, and an extended session of approximately 90 minutes.  Some clients prefer the option of having the longer session, to be able to go to a deeper emotional depth.

I look forward to hearing from you.
