My name is Jane Schunke, a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #18628). I take an integrative approach when working with individuals, couples and children. Working primarily from a person-centred, existential perspective, I provide a safe, empathetic space in which to welcome and explore fully the emotions that we hold within. Through a lens of kindness, compassion and humour, I am honoured to work collaboratively with you on your path to healing, as we navigate life’s challenges together.
Areas of focus include and are not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, loss, eating disorders and relationship issues.
As an Australian, North Vancouver has been home now for over 9 years. I hold a B.A., in addition to a Bachelor of Education. More recently I have completed a Masters of Counselling Psychology.
With a background in education, and as a mother of teenage children, I bring considerable life experience into our sessions together.
I have completed further training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP Level 1 therapist). I have also trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Individuals and Couples.

I am located on the Esplanade, in beautiful North Vancouver. My office overlooks the city of Vancouver and is easily accessible by public transport. The sea bus terminal is a five minute walk, and there is complimentary guest parking underground.
