Our Story

Disillusioned with the cookie cutter approach that large organizations think works, I created the opportunity to offer what clients tell me really works.  

Transforming Tides Counselling began in 2018 when I saw a need to offer therapy to combat the long wait lists of the mental health system.  I started virtual therapy for individuals and couples struggling with the emotional impact of managing life’s stressors, so they could have therapy in the ease of their own homes and on their own terms.  

I grew to offer virtual and in person therapy in Truro and then in 2023 I grew the therapy practice into a multi-disciplinary clinic where we now have a team serving Atlantic Canada.  

Irene and the team at Transforming Tides Counselling have the training and experience to offer evidence based therapies proven to make a difference.  

If you are ready to get started with therapy to live a stronger and more fulfilling life, reach out today.

How Therapy Works

Explore Together

First step is to get to know you and what matters most to you.  Together we will explore your goals, your past and current struggles and talk about what you are working towards.

A Tailored Plan

Second step is to build a plan that fits you and your unique situation.  Your therapist will tailor how they work with you to best focus on your needs and share tools to help you reach your goals


Third step is for us to support you along your path to greater wellness so that you feel confident in facing your challenges and are prepared to have success in living the life you long for.

We Help People Learn to Live Life With Ease


As service providers we model being real, transparent, open and honest in the work we do. Mental Health struggles are not new to any of us, we all walk this journey toward wellness together.



We pride ourselves in helping you feel listened to, respected, understood and guided toward seeing your own abilities and strengths. We believe in the power of resilience and that it can be learned and experienced from within ourselves and within our communities.



We are committed to going above and beyond to ensure the support we offer is effective and based on research. We work hard to offer you a quality experience when you connect with Transforming Tides Counselling.
