Vision and Mission of Our Calgary Counselling Center

Curio Counselling supports and empowers clients through collaboration and with curiosity so they can experience meaningful and lasting change that allows them to heal, grow, and thrive in all areas of their lives.

Behind the Name

A curio is a rare, unusual, or intriguing object considered to be of special interest or value. Our name is a reminder that each person is unique, interesting, and valuable, and as such, deserves counselling services that are tailored to meet their individual needs.

 

The word curio is also a shortened form of the word curiosity, which comes from the Latin cūriōsus, meaning “careful” or “inquisitive.”

 

Our name highlights our commitment to approach our clients with curiosity, working hard to understand each client’s needs and wants.

 

We also encourage our clients to increase their self-awareness by being compassionately curious about themselves.

Compassionate Curiosity

The desire to learn about or understand something better is a valuable tool for personal growth.

 

Exploring our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours in counselling increases our self-awareness and our ability to understand ourselves.

 

Curiosity can motivate us to strengthen our connections with ourselves, others, and the world around us.

 

Compassionate curiosity also encourages us to question and explore without judgment and to be open-minded to possibility.

Person-centred Approach

We believe that people are the experts in their own lives and that they have the inner resources necessary to be their own agents of change.

 

This means that we approach counselling as a collaborative endeavour between therapist and client.

 

It also means that we value inclusivity and welcome people of all walks of life. We meet our clients where they are at and approach them without judgment or expectation.

Integrated Care - Curio Counselling

Integrated Care

We believe that personal well-being is dependent on many factors, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

 

As a result, we strive to provide a holistic approach to therapy.

We are open to working with other health care providers to ensure clients receive consistent care but will only do so with express written consent.

 

We are also committed to helping clients find trustworthy care in areas we are not equipped to address.

Accessibility

We believe that all people should be able to access mental health support. As such, we are committed to ensuring our counselling services are accessible for our clients.

 

This value is supported by our location in the Beltline, with easy access to parking and transit; our easy online booking system and prompt response commitment; offering evening and weekend sessions; options for in-person therapy, online counselling, or phone sessions; and our commitment to providing a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment.
