About

Shortly after finishing her therapist training at the Montreal Counselling Centre for Helping Relationships, Valérie, who is from Quebec, took an adventurous step and moved to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, in 2016 to put her passion for working as a Helping Relationship Therapist into practice. Along with her wish to explore every aspect of being human, Valérie has over 15 years of experience in the healthcare field. Currently, in her work with childrens, teenagers and adults who want to transform their personal and professional relationships, she uses the creative nondirective approach (CNDA) developed by Dr. Colette Portelance. CNDA is a humanist approach in which the language employed by the client is explored in order to achieve a better understanding of how the person operates in relationships. The key to Valérie’s success is empathetic listening. When the client talks about what he or she is going through, Valérie listens with empathy to that person’s experience and provides sensitive support.

Valérie has great empathy for those who suffer from depression or suicidal thoughts, or have trouble experiencing self-love. Often, when people have problems in their relationships, they will often isolate themselves from others and not speak about the situation to those around them.

Working with a therapist who really listens to you, who helps you express yourself so you can break out of your isolation, is a great step forward when you feel like you are suffering alone.

Being a free being means being free to be who I am

‘’I decided to get counselling for my daughter because we were running into problems on a regular basis. My daughter really enjoyed the sessions since Valérie mainly worked with her through games. The counselling sessions gave us both lots of useful tools and have improved our lives. Valérie is a very professional, attentive, thoughtful and patient person.

Thank you!’’

“Our oldest son did several therapy sessions with Valérie Leclerc. They hit it off right from the start. He learned a lot about himself and acquired good life skills, such as recognizing and understanding his emotions, and knowing his own and others’ boundaries. Our son is not someone who has big problems and we appreciated having someone outside the family he could talk with. It allowed him to open up in a different way and discuss things he would not have broached with us.

Ms. Leclerc provided us with a report that also helped us, as my spouse and I were able to alter our approach, listen better and consider certain topics from a different perspective. We were able to talk to her about some things that we wanted her to address with our son, and she knew how and when to do it while protecting his trust in her and his privacy.

Our son always looked forward to his sessions and we are going to offer him the opportunity to continue, as it has been a positive and growing experience for our entire family.

Thank you very much Valérie.”
