Hello, I’m Nicole Thomson

Nicole Thomson

I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor living in Squamish, BC.

Personally, I enjoy things like art, snowboarding/skateboarding, playing music, camping, and being a mom.

Being a therapist is more than just a job for me.  

Spending time with people who are actively working to improve their lives never feels like work; it’s an honour and privilege.

I’m also thankful to work in a field that keeps me updated with psychology as an applied science.  I’m grateful for my background in clinical and counselling psychology at SFU and UBC. I look back now realizing how lucky I actually was to have been shaped by so many amazing teachers.  

I’m influenced by many other amazing therapists of all different orientations, but I do find value in specializing as an individual therapist. 


 Specifically, I utilize techniques from a number of evidence- based therapies; such as mindfulness  – which has so many benefits (such as improving concentration / emotion regulation), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, like classic CBT, but also Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.  Skills and techniques from these therapy practices have been shown to help with many challenges such as anxiety, depression, attention issues, relationship issues, and emotion regulation difficulties. 

Most importantly, our journey begins by understanding and respecting your individual perspective, and goals for counselling.  A lot of specialists can make recommendations, but you’re the only expert on you.   Having said that, asking for support when we are struggling takes courage.  It can feel scary to feel admit that we are ready to get support for our own growth, and to work towards the quality of life we want.  

I know all too well what it’s like to be in that “stuck” place, and how hard it is to ask for help.

If you’re feeling stuck now, the 1st simplest step would be reaching out for a free phone consult to see if you think we may be a good fit.
