Steve Ching received his Master’s of Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. He is a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) and is a member of good standing with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
Steve’s professional experience includes working in a high school setting, developing private practice, and group work with veterans. He primarily works with men, women, and youth; Steve’s approach to therapy combines Gestalt therapy, Attachment theory, Mindfulness, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy. He has also received training in trauma therapies such as Observed Experiential Integration (OEI) and Therapeutic Enactments.
Steve’s expertise consists of helping those who have struggled with anxiety, depression, various addictions (substance use, Internet, etc.), managing anger, issues stemming from trauma, concerns related to Post-traumatic stress, and interpersonal concerns.
Steve attests that, “it is through an authentic, safe, and attuned therapeutic relationship that clients will thrive most in therapy. To that end, I am deeply committed to meeting and connecting with the client wherever they are at. I believe at our core, we are beings who desire to be meaningfully connected to others. We long to be fully integrated in all the dimensions of ourselves (emotional, intellectual, behavioural, and spiritual).”
In his spare time, some of Steve’s hobbies are playing guitar and hiking in BC’s mountains.
