Cairis Counselling is a counselling agency in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. Cairis started in 2019 with a vision to help people become their best selves.
What is unique about Cairis Counselling?
Everyone at Cairis Counselling operates from a trauma informed perspective. It is important to go beyond the way we think to a more complete view that attends to each aspect of the healing process.
This includes how we think about ourselves and the world. It also entails attending to emotional wounds and traumatic memories from the past. Instead of just managing emotions like anxiety or anger, we can find an inner calm.
Another important component is finding self-compassion and learning to be curious about oneself. It is understandable why so often we feel the need to be hard on ourselves to be good enough, to perform well and keep people happy with us. But that unrelenting self-criticism and success anxiety is exhausting and limiting. We can learn to accept the truth of what we have done and still value ourselves in the midst of this. This means having the courage to forgive ourselves and let go of the shame trusting that we are indeed enough.
At Cairis Counselling we do this with evidence based, trauma informed approaches to counselling. Each therapist brings a unique blend of themselves and their approach, always with the aim of helping our clients reach their counselling goals.
Our clients experience an affirming atmosphere free of judgment, labeling or shame. Each person is honored for who they are and the unique skills and experience they bring.
Starting therapy takes courage. We make every effort to make the entire experience as good as possible so that nothing gets in the way of your progress. We want everyone to have more than just a great counselling experience, but also a great client experience.
This starts with being available for sessions in-person and online.
For our in-person sessions we are conveniently located in downtown Saskatoon in a modern, secure, and clean professional building. All sessions are conducted in a welcoming atmosphere with natural light and comfortable seating.
We are located in the Skyline business center on the tenth floor of the CIBC building. There is a clean, comfortable and spacious waiting room with a television, complimentary water, tea, coffee and hot chocolate along with free wifi.
We take great care to make the online experience as good as possible. This means we use studio quality lighting, cameras, and microphones so that each session is as close to being in-person as possible. Redundant internet connections ensure we are available when you are available.
