I am very pleased and honoured to have received the Canadian Certified Counsellor designation recently and look forward to joining a wider network of mental health care professionals.

According to the CCPA website:
“Obtaining the status of Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) includes recognition of standards of professional preparation, continuing education, and a formal code of ethics. As a non-statutory self-regulating body, CCPA provides advice and discipline for members on matters of professional conduct.”
“When a person’s stress levels are maintained at very high levels for sustained periods, there are psychological, sometimes physiological, consequences. Humans have evolved to use short bursts of fight-or-flight stress levels for survival, and most people have no ill effects from occasional stress. It can be very unhealthy, though, when high stress levels become chronic due to outside influences. That is what many veterans endure and often it takes therapy for them to recover.”
Dr. Michael Dadson states:
“I am very pleased and honoured to have received the Canadian Certified Counsellor designation recently and look forward to joining a wider network of mental health care professionals.”
