Kelowna Counselling

What happens when your life isn’t what you hoped for?

Kelowna counselling

In life, we hold so many hopes and dreams for ourselves: a great job; amazing family and friends; the big house with a white picket fence; the perfect life.

What happens when the life we are living is not the life we had hoped to live?

The difference between expectations and reality is difficult to come to terms with. It’s in these moments that we have a choice to choose hope. When we find ourselves scared, uncertain, or disillusioned due to challenging times, we often give up hope, rather than using hope as the light to help us to see new possibilities and move through the challenge in front of us.

Without hope, we cannot trust ourselves to navigate life’s challenges, or take the steps needed to continue to pursue the life we want. As the saying goes: “We only live once, but if we live well, once is enough.”

It’s never too late to create the life you want if you take the time to learn HOW!

Counselling Restores Hope & Reveals New Possibilities!

 Katharine Hansen Counselling is a private practice business located in Kelowna, British Columbia


I offer both in-person and online counselling for women, men, and families who are struggling to find and utilize hope to lead them through the struggles of day-to-day life.


So often in life things don’t work out the way we had hoped, and for so many of us we have not been taught how to face these difficult feelings and struggles, so we often shut down and withdraw from life.

Kelowna counsellor

During these difficult times, it is so important to face the challenging emotions, overcome barriers, and find the meaning within the struggle. My entire practice is focused on finding and utilizing hope as a life skill to move through adversity.

Hope is the resource that shines light into darkness, allowing you to expand your awareness and see all the possibilities and options available to you. Every healing journey requires courage, willingness, an open mind, and an open heart.

The gift of hope allows us the resilience and enthusiasm needed to see and embrace the new possibilities that we so deeply desire and deserve. The gift of counselling shows you HOW!
