Brad Steyn is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). His approach to counselling involves an extensive background in mentoring, teaching, training and advocacy work ranging from working with youth and adults in the non-profit sector and the academy (high schools and colleges). At the moment, Brad works for the Yellowknife School District as their “Community Liaison Counsellor.” Before that, Brad had been involved in managing a downtown Vancouver shelter, with all the complexities of caring for the most vulnerable people in that city, as well as using his counselling and experience to assist these people with their mental health challenges. Brad sees his primary role as a counsellor as helping clients find the answers to their current predicament/s. His passion is to work collaboratively with clients to empower them to negotiate their way forward and experience the desired outcomes they are looking for.
