Kayla Janes

M.Ed., CCC, RP Registered Psychotherapist

Kayla Janes wants to continue helping individuals find their inner strength to not just recover, but grow from their experiences. She understands that engaging in counselling takes a great deal of strength, and that it is the first step to positive change and emotional healing. Kayla hopes to help you take that step.

“I offer clients a safe space where they can feel comfortable sharing their story, will not feel judged, and can therefore begin their path to healing and growth,”

“Psychotherapy is a collaborative process,” she says, believing that the process of psychotherapy looks different for each individual as each story and life are unique. It is her perspective that you are the expert of your own life and healing, and that she is here to help you on your journey.

The resilience and strength people have following adversity is a great motivator in Kayla’s desire to engage in therapeutic work. She has worked with adults, adolescents, couples and families on a variety of issues; including: trauma (such as childhood abuse and/or intimate partner violence), addictions, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, interpersonal difficulties, life transitions, and personal growth.

“I am extremely proud of the clients I work with and the personal growth and emotional healing that they experience. I am always humbled by my clients and the strength and resilience they have,”

Kayla is a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association, and is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario.

In 2012, she received her Masters of Education (M.Ed) in Counselling Psychology from Western University. Kayla shares that she is “proud of the dedication and work ethic I had” to achieve her degree.

Additionally, she has attended workshops and had additional training in various modalities including working with trauma survivors, cognitive behavioural therapy, narrative and solution focused therapy as well as mindfulness.
