About Me

Vikram Saggu,

Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), BA

My style is deeply relational; the foundation of the therapeutic process is to build trust, understanding, and connection. By learning your story and building awareness in the present moment between us, the healing process can begin.

I decided to pursue counseling as a career because I have a strong desire to support others, but at the beginning, I didn't precisely know-how.

While I was in University, I worked for an NGO helping girls in Kenya get a better education. At the same time, I studied political science and Anthropology, hoping to work in the humanitarian field. 

 

Throughout my life, I dealt with much personal trauma. Similarly, I saw others who dealt with issues but didn’t have support causing things to be worse. So, I realized I could help society by being a support system for all. Coming from an Indian background, I have personally dealt with mental health stigmas. Similarly, as a male, I have been told to “suck it up” and hide my feelings which only causes feelings of anxiety to be worse. I want to facilitate change in what it is to be a man and create stronger bonds within families.

 

My Approach

Every person has a unique philosophy, lived experience, and relationship to the world - but what all my clients have agreed with is that they're ultimately seeking a person-centered approach. 

As a counsellor, I am open-minded, compassionate, honest, and focused on helping you overcome the obstacles that are interfering with your potential. I believe that every person has the ability to overcome, heal, and creatively shape their life.

With the tools you will gain in our sessions, tough days will feel easier and goals will become clear and achievable. I believe that having a safe, non-judgmental, and empathic place to explore your needs is the perfect starting point for change.


I have worked with a wide array of ages and cultures to support them through the challenges that life can bring. Contact me today if you would like to work with a person-centred, strength-based counsellor who wants to help you step into your wellness and tap into your greatness.
