Cheryl's dog 'Boomer' is present in the background of sessions, as are her feline helpers to bring an extra offering of comfort to those who enjoy and are relaxed by the company of animals. And for those who are not, the four-legged companions stay in the background, off-camera to keep you feeling safe and comfortable.

I look very forward to speaking with you soon.




Cheryl Storey Counselling Services specializes in helping clients dealing with anxiety, stress, grief and panic attacks.

The 'root' of the word 'psychotherapy', literally comes from the Greek.  Psycho or Psyche refers to 'the Soul'.  Therapy, comes from 'terapia' or 'Care of the Soul'.  This approach reminds us that we are a part of LIFE.  Life with a Capital "L", and that "LIFE" (vs. lifestyle), is infinite order.

LIFE knows how to do life, even when we don't have a clue. The sun rises and sets every single day.  The moon's cycle is 28 days as is every woman's on the planet, regardless of politics, climate change or our mood.  Deeper than your pain is your innate connection to LIFE, your innate power-from-within, like a compass, or guidance system wired into the fibre of your being.

  My role, is to help you go deeper than your circumstances, to reconnect to, and empower your awareness of your own inner wisdom by acknowledging and having the opportunity to express your thoughts and feelings, to get back in-motion. You are then better able to identify, prioritize and problem-solve your concerns, strengths, supports, resources, and strategies to create a plan of self-care, meaning-making and (possible) next steps with the professional and caring support of your therapist.
