Sergius's Bio Sergius started his career in 2013 by providing therapeutic counselling at Horizons for Youths with mental health needs and involvement with the criminal justice system in Toronto. Sergius went on to provide informal counselling and support to refugee families and newcomers to Canada who have experienced trauma, chaos, and/or post-traumatic stress symptoms. Sergius also has experience working with clients who experience anxiety and depression. Sergius is able to assess the risks and strengths of families to build their capacities to care for their children. Sergius is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a counselling modality that can help folks embrace the life they want, change their thought processes and situational reactions. Sergius takes a client-centred approach, which considers each person’s unique cultural background and family history. He is committed to creating a safe, open, trusting and non-judgemental environment for any client he sees and treats them holistically. Sergius recognizes the vulnerability and bravery it takes for clients to seek counselling and psychotherapy services and feels privileged in doing such an important work. Many Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and extended health care plans will cover services rendered by a Registered Social Worker.
