Kelly Halliday

Intern Psychotherapist


Growing up, Kelly was always interested in learning about the mind and the psychology behind peoples’ behaviours. She knew she wanted to be an advocate for mental health in some capacity. It was at the University of Guelph where she took her first psychology course, and became intent on learning about the mind, and its connection to thoughts, feelings and actions. Kelly went on to obtain her Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology, as well as Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. Kelly has enjoyed working with youth as a student teacher.

Kelly takes a strengths-based approach to counselling. This allows clients to identify and utilize their strengths and work together to develop tools that will help them cope with the challenges they are facing now and in the future. This can lead to both growth and autonomy. Kelly utilizes a client-centered style, accepting and valuing client experiences. This leads to clients feeling encouraged and supported and are able to make positive changes in their lives.

Kelly has experienced the loss of several loved ones and understands how complex loss and grief can be. Whether the client is working through grief, stress, anxiety, depression, or a multitude of other issues, Kelly approaches counselling with an empathetic, non-judgmental stance. She believes every single client deserves and has the ability to live a joyful life.

“Big changes are nothing more then a series of little changes made over time.”
