What moving forward looks like.
Two Steps Forward was founded in response to the need for effective treatment and timely access for individuals struggling with their emotional well-being.
Why it’s time.
Everyone faces setbacks in life which can manifest in various ways – personal issues, family problems, financial troubles, death or trauma. These scenarios disrupt our normal routines and leave us uncertain in our lives. The best strategy when life sets you back, is to take two steps forward.
Inside a session.
Two Steps Forward uses a variety of specialized treatment therapies because every person and situation deserves a customized approach.
- Individual counselling
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

- Urgent and non-urgent comprehensive mental health assessments
- Urgent Intervention

Throughout the sessions, we’ll discuss what’s happening in your personal life and the areas you want to work on. We’ll explore different barriers and work together to move forward in life.
- Self-esteem & worthiness
- Personal growth and self-development
- Stress management
- Depression, panic/anxiety, anger
- Life transitions (i.e. parental separation)
Online therapy for everyone.
Address depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship problems or unwanted habits from the comfort of your own home.
Two Steps Forward Counselling Services prefers, where possible, to provide services via video conferencing. Online therapy is beneficial when clients are not able to attend sessions face-to-face. It also allows you to work with the right counsellor based on experience and personal connection not solely based on location.
A 2018 study published in the Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online cognitive behavioral therapy is, “effective, acceptable and practical health care.” The study found the online cognitive behavioral therapy was equally as effective as face-to-face treatment for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.

It would be helpful that you choose a private space for the session where you will not be overheard and there are no other distractions.
Why should I try online therapy?
If you’re unable to see a counsellor in person due to location, physical limitations, lack of transportation or simply because it’s more convenient and discreet.
When is online therapy not appropriate?
Online therapy isn’t meant for people with certain problems or conditions (such as suicidal intent or psychosis).
