Paul Bains Counselling Services
Serving Surrey, Delta and the Lower Mainland in BC since 1996.

"Realistic, practical and meaningful results."


Research shows that the relationship and connection between client and therapist is the  greatest predictor of results. Therefore, I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to clients to experience for themselves what counselling offers and to get to know me. I am confident that you will feel that you are working with a counsellor who hears what you are saying and understands how to support you and be with you as we collaboratively co-create your change. My hope in serving you is to offer you skill, experience, wisdom and a  real connection.
