Walking With You Toward Healing, Wholeness & Transformation

You have thought about counselling many times, but the idea of it is scary and overwhelming. You're ready to make a change, but you don't know where to start. You feel like you should "have it all together by now", but don't feel like you do and you need some direction. You are not alone. It's time to take that step toward a healthier you. And I'm here to help! Together we can help you heal.

Welcome to Ruth Unaegbu Counselling & Coaching

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, however, if faced with courage, need not be lived again. - Maya Angelou

You are the expert of your own life. It's my job to support you and help you realize and utilize your strengths. It's my job to walk alongside you as you learn to manage your emotions, address your concerns, and create meaningful change. It's my job to hold space for you as you navigate this journey. And it's my pleasure to do so.

Land Acknowledgment

I acknowledge that my work takes place on the ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the Hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ Speaking People. I recognize that their relationship with these lands is ancient, primary, and enduring and I recognize the immense labour that has gone into cultivating, nurturing, and protecting these lands. As an uninvited settler in what is colonially known as Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, I recognize that I am on stolen land. With that, I honour and support Indigenous resistance and reconciliation as an ally in the continued fight for Indigenous Sovereignty.
