Experience You Can Count On
Ashleigh Mutcher, Registered Psychologist
When it comes to your health and overall well-being, it’s important to have a knowledgeable professional you can trust. Over the years, I’ve provided therapeutic support to clients throughout Calgary from all walks of life. My expertise covers a broad spectrum of mental health services. Check out my qualification below, and call me today for a consultation.
A unique feature I offer my clients is flexible session length times. This is important because the needs of clients differ in regards to session duration from day to day and from person to person. Sessions usually last between 30 minutes up to 2 hrs and 30 min.
My approach to healing includes the integration of mind and body with a specialized focus on regulation of the nervous system. This is a trauma-informed method of intervention and is based upon an integration of numerous evidence-based models. Additionally, I have training and experience using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in both individual and group settings. I have extensive experience working with youth, adults and athletes in the areas of emotion regulation, communication, conflict and performance psychology.
For the past 18 years I have provided specialized clinical counselling services to individuals and families. I incorporate a relational perspective when working with groups of two or more, drawing from the evidence-based framework of Functional Family Therapy techniques.
I enjoy being a group leader and I have experience facilitating a variety groups using a broad range of formats. I am not currently facilitating any groups. If you have interest in joining a group or finding something for your child don't hesitate to contact me with your requests.

If you're curious where the name Canary Counselling comes from please check out this video by Author Glenn Doyle Melton. She does a beautiful job of explaining the role of the canary.
This delicate, tiny, sensitive, bright yellow song bird carries with it a promise of joy and new beginnings. The canary serves to remind us that we need to honour our sensitivities and avoid taking on too much toxicity from the environment and those around us.
Someone to walk beside you
Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study psychology. We have all experienced that suffering is a part of what it means to be human and we all need a little help sometimes. My goal as your therapist is to work hard to deeply understand your current struggle and align myself with your goals for healing. I will create an individualized treatment plan to suit your needs and assist you in moving toward the changes you desire. Please contact me to get started today.
