I am a private practice psychologist focusing on depression, anxiety, anger and related mood issues. Overall, my approach is more on the structured side. I approach therapy as a set of moves that anybody can learn in order to help themselves work with thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Although history can be important, the main focus of my work is here and now, because that’s the only time when change can happen.

Are you experiencing overwhelming emotions, unwanted thoughts, challenging relationships, codependency, unhelpful habits or addiction? You are not alone. If you are feeling stuck in life, I can help by listening to your concerns and providing the support you need for anxiety and depression, grief, loss, transition, stress, addiction and codependency.

The primary modality I work from is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, however, I incorporate many elements into the work I do with clients depending on their needs.

I realize that the decision to start therapy can be terrifying and takes a lot of courage, believe me, I have been there myself. Contact me for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Toby Macklin

MA in Counselling Psychology, Yorkville University. Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.
Years in practice: 15
Offers:  Remote Therapy

Based in British Columbia, I work online with men across Canada who want to live more satisfying and meaningful lives, often in the face of trauma. My clients have realized that events in their past still have a hold on them and are preventing them from living the way they want. Many have had physically, emotionally, or sexually abusive childhoods, or have had frightening or painful experiences as younger adults. Though they may have come through the worst, they find their lives still affected years later. The counselling I offer can help you recover and grow through depression, anxiety, and traumatic stress. Remote therapy only.

Ever feel like saying F#CK My Life? Whether you are stressed out, burnt out or someone feeling increasingly overwhelmed, I am here to support you. I specialize in anger, burnout, addiction and relationship challenges. Currently I’m training in psychedelic-assisted therapy at VIU and work with men integrating spiritual and other non-ordinary states of consciousness. My counselling style is pragmatic and heartfelt. Why is this happening is an important question to ask. The answers often lie in our own past, habit energy and relationships. One of the main goals in doing this deeper work is to reclaim what has been lost or forgotten. Together we will stop the emotional toll and get you back to doing what you love or uncover what that is. Individual, Couple & Group rates available.

I work online with couples and individuals across Canada (BC, YT, NWT, SK, MB, Nunavut) who want to live with more joy and meaning in their lives in spite of the trauma they’ve faced.

The counselling I offer can help you process and integrate your past so that it doesn’t get so much in the way of you achieving what you want in life – whether that be progressing your life and career goals, deepening your relationships with others, processing grief and loss, becoming more confident in your personal identity, or managing and growing through depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress. I work to connect you with your emotions and build concrete skills that will help you thrive.
