Hannah Tourand, RTCc
Hannah Tourand - Registered Therapeutic Counsellor Candidate, Couples Counsellor, Online Tele-Therapist
I'm a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor Candidate (RTCc #2793) with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT). I naturally create a safe, collaborative environment for you to experience courageous and inspiring movements towards your relationship goals. I'll help you feel a greater sense of empowerment, increased connection between yourself and your partner, access a more fulfilling and passionate relationship, plus the freedom to confidently experience the range of human emotion that enriches your lived experience.
I know you are likely a deserving couple looking to connect, grow and heal from painful disruptions and challenges, or possibly a scared individual navigating pain, loss, difficult change, anxiety or struggle. Either way, I will wholeheartedly support you with care, skill, and confidence, teaching you effective communication tools to gain higher self-esteem, a greater sense of empowerment and increased clarity.
Together we will create congruence between your truest self and the life you live, more fulfilling and successful relationships, and the freedom to experience the range of human emotion that enriches your lived experience.
When working with couples and individuals, I counsel from a combination of perspectives including attachment-focused, emotion-focused, mindfulness, person-centred and integrated somatic-awareness. My professional background is in social services, specifically serving clients experiencing mental illness, addiction, and other systemic barriers. My experience in this sector has deeply informed my practice as a counsellor, particularly in holding trauma-informed and anti-oppressive practice as guiding principles in all therapeutic work.
Though I'll utilize my specialist training and experience in our sessions, I also value the importance of being human first, wanting you to know that I have walked a path similar to yours, of knowing suffering, confronting trauma, and relationship breakdown. I have an empathetic awareness of the challenges that your relationship can bring, and also the healing and vitality that connection, support, education, and access to therapeutic tools can create.
Contact me today to explore how together we can transform your relationships, your life and your happiness!
"I believe the choice to pursue healing is a radical act of hope, that another reality is possible. And I believe that all human beings are equally and inherently worth of a rich, whole, and meaningful life.
It is my hope that we can gently, collaboratively, and steadfastly create the change you are seeking."

"I was honoured to have had the opportunity to witness Hannah in therapeutic support and been guided by Hannah, myself. The experience was absolutely pivotal for me. I was inspired by Hannah's focus on safe, effective, and ethical therapeutic techniques in application of trauma counselling."

"Hannah is warm, kind, and compassionate in every interaction. Her sense of humour is appreciated and refreshing, and her professionalism creates a safe space that allows for vulnerability and sensitive therapeutic work. She's supported me to honour myself and my boundaries as well as empowered me to be open to learning and new ways of thinking that have created so much positive growth."
