My Interests

My clinical approach to counselling consists of a variety of techniques derived from Emotion Focused, Gestalt, Process Experiential, Interpersonal, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. The specific therapeutic approach and interventions I choose to use depends on individual concerns, needs, and ways of learning. I primarily use an Emotion Focused/Process Experiential approach, which effectively helps people understand the nuances of their emotional concerns to propel change and growth. As a counsellor, I continue my professional development through ongoing research and education. I use research based interventions and collaborate with clients to help them explore concerns from a deeper, more informed frame of reference so that new meanings and ways to tackle personal struggles can be made to support change.

My name is Erica Collyer and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts with a major in Psychology.
I grew up in the Lower Mainland of BC, Canada where I attended Douglas College completing an Associate’s Degree in Arts. While at Douglas College, I began studying Psychology, Sciences, and Marketing and became captivated with the study of human behaviour. Simultaneously, I began my professional work with people by volunteering at a crisis phone line in Coquitlam where I provided counselling and resources to people in the community struggling with a range of personal concerns. After the completion of my degree at Douglas College, I sought higher education at Simon Fraser University where I finished a Bachelor Degree in Arts with a major in Psychology. Through my academic advancement in Psychology, I developed an aptitude and understanding of the complexity of human behaviour and the brain. Concurrently, I was working as the primary Addictions Counsellor at a residential drug and alcohol treatment center with teenage girls. There I engaged in one to one counselling and organized and ran psycho-educational therapeutic groups on coping styles, substance abuse, and recovery. By applying my education and understanding of therapy and the recovery model, I was able to help my clients gain insight, coping skills, and a new way of life.
Five years ago, I began working as a counsellor in Youth Corrections in Burnaby, BC. In this position, I work with youth who are being charged with crimes in the community, many of which are dealing with mental health and addiction issues. This position has not only allowed me to transfer my professional experience and education, but has also given me further opportunity to gain insight and experience about individual struggle, moral integrity, and human resiliency. Seeking to refine and learn more about effective strategies to help others, I decided to pursue and complete a three year Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology at Simon Fraser University. In this specialized academic endeavor, I worked in a Supervised Counselling Clinic in Surrey, BC where I saw people from the community dealing with a variety of issues such as depression, infidelity, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and eating concerns. To further my hands on experience, I then went onto completing an eight month practicum at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Counselling Services, where I held therapy sessions with UBC students ranging from 18 to 45 years of age. There, I also co-facilitated groups on Anxiety and Depression weekly. This work crystallized my clinical approach to helping people through a counselling relationship. Since completing my Master’s Degree in April 2012, I’ve continued applying my knowledge and experience in my work at the BC Youth Correctional setting and in my private counselling practice.
Through my practical experiences and work as a counsellor, I’ve come to believe that people have the answers to their personal struggles within themselves. During the process of counselling, research shows that strategies and answers can be uncovered so people learn how to live stronger, more resilient lives. From my experience and knowledge of scientific data, there is clear proof that counselling, when skillfully done, can provide the effective tools to speed up the healing process and prevent concerns from re-emerging. Counselling is the professional approach to seek when you’re ready to make a change.
