Atlantic Counselling Services offers
guidance to those whose quality of life
have deteriorated because of addiction and/or stress related issues.
Deep thought has been given to every aspect of designing Atlantic
Counselling Services in order to create a safe and welcoming environment.
A person is assisted with evaluating the challenges they are facing
in the light of the new hope that the future can bring. This begins
with the name and logo.
name, Atlantic represents the Atlantic Ocean
with its calm, rough and angry waters - an important part of our
heritage. The highs and lows of the waves of the ocean can be
seen to represent the highs and lows in life. The impact of these
waves on individuals, families and society are even more intense
when they are fueled by addictions and/or mental health issues.
As the ocean has the ability to change from rough seas to calm
waters so too can people restore calm in their lives (e.g., eliminating/controlling
unhealthy dependencies; seeking support; overcoming stigma ).
These positive changes can make a profound difference in the lives
of men, women and children.
The lighthouse, a familiar and comforting sight to Newfoundlanders,
has always been a beacon of hope for those embarking upon stormy
seas where there is little or no visibility. This also can be
connected to how substance abuse can consume and control lives
resulting in destructive consequences. However, more importantly,
lighthouses signify how people, their families and resources (such
as counselling) can light the way and help restore calm and control.
It is an interesting and well-known fact that most lighthouses
are unique and different from one another. This also speaks to
the uniqueness and authenticity of each person.
May your experience with Atlantic Counselling be a fulfilling
one whereby you feel connected and anchored to what it is
you need to do to reach your therapy goals.
We are all sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each
by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world
is all gates, all opportunities.
