  • “I’ve been working with Christina for almost two years. She has helped me through my deepest depression and is now supporting me as an entrepreneur. She has helped me understand my mental illness and has given me many tools and resources to manage it. I can tell she really cares and genuinely wants to facilitate positivity in people’s lives. Her personalized sessions have been the most effective therapy I’ve ever received. I have recommended Christina to many others because I truly believe she can help them like she’s helped me.

  • After many years of counselling I arrived at Next Step expecting the more of same, listening and guiding. However, Hailey’s approach, including using EMDR, was very different to previous therapy and empowered me. Within a few months I felt a huge difference that has been long-lasting since stopping a few months ago. I highly recommend Next Step! Thank you.”

  • I have been going to see Lindsey since July and she has absolutely changed my life! She is kind, listens to you fully and gives you the tools you need to help you through your problems. She has helped me get my anxiety under control and work through a lot of unexpected grief I have been dealing with the last few months. I am grateful to have found Lindsey and recommend her everyone I know!!”

  • “I have so far spoken to Hailey and Coleen and both are incredible supports! It is so hard to find great counselling and they are so open and understanding of how important finding the right counsellor is (personality, technique, financial..). I absolutely recommend Next Step!!! 100% it’ll change your view on mental health and how to address it”
