More about Sabrina Brady

My passion is to help and support others, meeting them wherever they are in their journey. I have over 10 years of professional and volunteer experience supporting people of all ages with varied mental health and wellness needs. Expanding on these experiences, I am currently completing my Masters of Counselling through the University of Calgary.

When working with clients, I emphasize a holistic and integrative approach. I believe that counselling provides clients with the opportunity to meaningfully explore their experiences, emotions, beliefs, and behaviours in a constructive way, creating an environment for growth and where meaningful change can occur. The theoretical approaches I draw from are: Client-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptable and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Gottman’s Method (couples), narrative therapy, and mindfulness techniques.

I look forward to working with you and hearing your story.
