My name is Annette Adkin. My experience as a counsellor in Kelowna and as a person has taught me that within each of us lies the courage, strength, resiliency, beauty and desire to be loved, and to be connected to ourselves and to others.


I am committed to supporting people to feel better and to notice positive changes. This will include helping you explore the patterns that underlie areas of dissatisfaction and difficulty. We will discover the source of those patterns in earlier experiences and work on them. My goal is to provide a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship to transform the ways in which you think, feel and behave and thus, create lasting and meaningful change. This can be a new chapter to your life story.


Counselling is about how to feel better.

What stops you from being the person you want to be, from living the life you want to live?  For over 25 years I have been helping people to find their way through hard times and feelings, so they can have warmer, richer lives and more satisfying relationships.

You may be feeling overwhelmed, hopeless, angry, anxious, depressed or confused. Sometimes we find ourselves lost and unhappy. It can be a struggle to maintain authenticity, access our abilities and remember our strengths. During these times we need to be supported, encouraged and challenged to either get back to our true selves or to start to create a new, more rewarding life journey that activates all of who we were meant to be.
