Pauline Carey - Surrey Counsellor and Trainer

Pauline Carey has been providing counselling and training services for over 30 years and on two continents.  In the last 10 years she has specialized in trauma resolution and the reduction of unwanted negative emotions such as anger and anxiety.

In her Surrey counselling practice, Pauline uses a proven brief therapeutic modality called Applied Metapsychology, to assist clients in achieving their counselling goals in the shortest possible time. Applied Metapsychology techniques include Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) and Life Stress Reduction (LSR). TIR is a particularly effective and respectful trauma counselling modality, and LSR handles a variety of life stresses, providing relief and solutions in the shortest possible time.

In 2007, Pauline was certified by Applied Metapsychology International as a Senior Trainer in TIR and LSR.  This qualifies her to teach Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), Life Stress Reduction (LSR), and TIR Expanded Applications (EA) to counsellors and other social service fellow helping professionals.  Since 2007 Pauline has trained hundreds of practitioners throughout B.C. as well as in the Canadian Arctic. As a Senior Trainer, Pauline is also qualified to train others to become TIR and LSR trainers.

In addition to counselling and training, Pauline also provides crisis management services to organizations.  Traumatic events such as death of an employee, robbery, assault, and job loss, frequently affect staff, even those not directly involved.  On-site trauma debriefings and counselling services are available to assist employees and employer as they process the trauma and return to their prior level of functioning.

Pauline served as Regional Vice President of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors from 2004 – 2006.  From 1994-1999, she worked for Deltassist (formerly Delta Family Services) as Clinical Supervisor of Counselling Programs. Here she supervised 16 professional staff in 6 counselling programs:  Alcohol and Drug, Family Violence, Suicide Prevention, Sexual Abuse Survivors and two family counselling programs.

Prior to moving to Canada in 1994, Pauline was a Registered Clinical Psychologist in her native South Africa.  In addition to her private practice there, she worked as a human resources management consultant, a college instructor in psychology, a career counsellor, and as an industrial psychologist for one of the biggest employers in the country.
