Cheam (pronounced Shea-am) Centre for Counselling Therapy is situated in the lush flatlands of the Fraser Valley in view of majestic Mt. Cheam, only minutes from Abbotsford and Chilliwack. In the indigenous language of the Valley, ‘Cheam’ means to rehydrate.
Our vision at Cheam Centre is one of a biopsychosociospiritual approach to counselling. This means that the therapy you receive at Cheam is holistic; addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the human experience.
Part of the healing process is finding peace and serenity in Cheam Centre's 'Contemplative Garden'. You can choose to spend time in the Garden before or after your therapy session, or you might even choose to experience your session in the Garden itself.
Full of natural light, Cheam offers counselling services for children and adults, individuals, couples, and families. We provide a beautiful space for child-therapy, located right on the main level, and also offer the indoor or outdoor deck option.
“Our family was apprehensive about coming for counselling (even though we knew we needed it). But after we arrived, we were immediatly put at ease. We loved some of the communication exercises that Deana took us through.”
