This Month’s Guest Speaker: Charlotte King-Harris, Counsellor
Welcome to our group in Victoria B.C.! Please come and join us at our monthly parent meetings which will range from themed parent discussions, guest speakers and videoconferencing with guest speakers in Vancouver. We aim to learn from each other and to find out more about caring for our special children -let’s navigate the world of rare disease together. New parents always welcome.
Speaker: Charlotte King-Harris, Counsellor

She specializes in helping children, youth and families find their best selves. From a young age, Charlotte’s passion has always been child, youth and family therapy. She strives to help each of her clients find their best selves through a variety of techniques and strategies including talk therapy, art therapy and play therapy. She recognizes the innate wisdom and expertise that each individual possesses and works collaboratively with her clients to support them in meeting their goals. Her work is grounded primarily in mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches and she enjoys creatively modifying these to suit her clients’ needs.
The first half of the evening will be dedicated to the above topic and the second half of the meeting will be open for discussions.
As it is really helpful for us to have an idea of who is able to attend, we would really appreciate people RSVPing to Jocelyn(email: Jocelyn.CarterSim@viha.ca) by Tuesday morning of the meeting day. We understand that life happens and we won’t hold you to coming but we like to have a sense for food and drinks as to who will likely be attending. Thank you in advance. 🙂 This has been helpful in the past so really appreciate all those who respond.
Light snacks will be provided at the meeting. Please bring your own water/coffee/tea as needed.
Our next meeting is scheduled for January 8, 2018 guest speaker TBA. We will also be planning a pub night in December 2018 so stay tuned for details.
