Robyn is the founder of Minds Matter Counselling, located in Kelowna within the heart of the Okanagan Valley. An expert in her field, Robyn knows health encompasses more than just physical wellness. It is also essential to nurture the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self.

Robyn works with individuals 18 years and older and her approach to counselling is warm, collaborative and person centred. Her practice is founded upon creating an inviting atmosphere where clients feel safe to share their experiences. Robyn believes in approaching health from a holistic perspective and building upon inherent strengths to create meaningful growth and healing.

Therapeutic modalities may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a therapeutic approach widely regarded as one of the most effective therapies for treating trauma, anxiety, depression, substance misuse and a range of other mental health disorders.

After EMDR therapy, clients are able to recall distressing events without associated negative emotions and have developed skills to assist them with coping with future events.
