Dr. Dadson Addresses Three Most Common Issues Faced by Local Counselling Clinic Patients: Anxiety, Depression, PTSD

The counselling process is really summed up, for me, in one word: ‘transformation’.”— Dr. Michael DadsonLANGLEY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, August 6, 2020 / -- Gentle Currents Therapy - Counselling and Neurofeedback (“Gentle Currents Therapy” or “the Clinic”), co-founded by Dr. Michael Dadson, is a counselling clinic serving families, couples, and individuals of all ages in Langley, Vancouver, and the Fraser Valley of British Columbia with counselling and neurofeedback therapy.

Dr. Dadson has recently launched a YouTube channel highlighting the Clinic’s approach to psychological issues prevalent in the community. Visit the YouTube channel here: .


According to Dr. Dadson in one video: “The most common issues that we address in counselling are things like anxiety or depression, relationship issues, couples’ issues, father and son, or mother and daughter…; PTSD is also something that is very common.”

Dr. Dadson believes that being present, compassionate, and using proven fine-tuned skills in a non-judgmental atmosphere of acceptance is essential in healing patients’ psychological challenges.

“The counselling process is really summed up, for me, in one word: ‘transformation’,” says Dadson.


Several videos have already been posted on the YouTube channel, in which Dr. Michael Dadson, Ph.D describes Gentle Currents Therapy and its approach to:
• Male depression and trauma
• Depression and anxiety
• Couples, relationship and family therapy
• PTSD in veterans & First responders: PTSD Therapy

Says Dr. Dadson: “Whether it’s cognitive-behavioural therapy, emotionally-focused therapy, process-oriented therapy… there’s a variety of different modalities and I like to be flexible and adapt to the person that I’m working with.”

Dr. Dadson holds that most people benefit from counselling at some point in their lives and expects that his new videos will be an accessible medium for members of the community to learn about his values, methodologies and counselling services offered at Gentle Currents Therapy.
