IMPORTANT NOTICE

Due to the recent increase in covid-19 cases experienced in the Province of British Columbia, our office is once again forced to limit our practice to that of phone and on-line services only.

This necessary change and vital precautionary measure is effective September 26, 2020 and we are unable to speculate on when in-office appointment availability will resume.

Additionally, due to extenuating circumstances, our on-line appointment scheduling will now reflect evening and weekend appointments only, until further notice.  Appointments may be scheduled, as follows:

                            Monday to Friday:   6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
                                         Saturday:   10:00 am to 6:00 pm
                                           Sunday:    CLOSED

We apologize for any inconvenience these changes in hours presents however, due to on-going issues concerning the current pandemic, these operational changes are necessary to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Our phone lines will remain open for regular business hours for all referral inquiries and requests for support.

Thank you kindly for your continued patience and support and we look forward to hearing from you!

Their passion and commitment to supporting others comes with over 30 years of professional mental health service provisions; with each of them enjoying long careers in assisting others in daily living and resolving personal issues.

Meet Jim Kiernan, BSW, MA(Counselling), RSW

Registered Mental Health Therapist

Jim has worked in the field of human services for over thirty years and has dedicated much of his life to helping families struggling with drug addiction as well as individuals battling depression, anxiety, and unhealthy anger. Jim understands well that relationships are at the heart of human happiness and he has spent decades coaching people to be their best selves in their intimate relationships. Jim's extensive research and clinical experience in therapeutic interventions and coaching applications have supported his long-term and continuing role as a social work clinician; a role that Jim has thoroughly enjoyed over his career. Additionally, Jim engages in private endeavours where his services are requested and he provides quality attention and exceptional diligence in meeting the needs of those entrusting his care.


Jim is happily married and the father of three adult children. Jim has worked in a number of Canadian Provinces throughout his distinguished career and a variety of positions including Provincial child welfare in Ontario. Jim's pleasant mannerism and wealth of knowledge makes for an informative and enjoyable presentation as he captures his attention with real-life, no non-sense approaches to recapturing people's insight and confidences in themselves. In times when everyone is so busy and expectations so high, our relationships often involve situations of conflict which only serve to wear us down and diminish our relationship with those we care most about. Jim's unique and evidence-based approach to embracing your relationships and resolving any and all issues which serve to undermine it, is indeed his area of expertise. Jim presents practical advice in supporting individuals, couples, groups and families in on-line video conferencing formats.

GROUP PROGRAMS

We recognize and appreciate the enormous stress and anxiety that many individuals and families are currently experiencing.
The current conditions further complicated by the covid-19 corona virus pandemic has had dramatic and devastating effects which do not appear to be minimizing or improving.  The results have been a serious and limited amount of resources in order to accommodate our most simple basic living needs.
This affects all families and the relationships we share with our loved ones as we each struggle to find balance, hope and opportunities to survive these difficult times ahead.
Our young people and even school-age children are suffering from extreme stress and anxiety as they attempt to make sense of World around them and the struggles and anguish they witness with their parents in attempting to secure their safety and well-being.
IMPRESSIONS FCS Inc is currently offering weekly group video counselling sessions in an effort to assist individuals most affected by these troubling circumstances and who feel they would benefit in sharing their experiences with others in an effort to finding inner strength and fostering enhanced coping strategies.
Our eight-week programs are specifically designed to assist and support YOU in finding the peace and comfort in daily living that you desire... and DESERVE!
PLEASE NOTE:
Our Groups fill up quickly, due to limited capacity.
We strongly encourage all interested participants to register as soon as possible to assure availability.
