Stepping Stones Counselling

Kelowna –  Vernon  – Penticton


The Stepping Stones Counselling Group is a team of specialized therapists, social workers and practitioners. We are dedicated to providing nurturing, creative and flexible healing environments and experiences. Services are offered to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families throughout the Okanagan region.


Our Approach

Every effort is made to match you with a counsellor you will feel comfortable with, and who has the skills you require.

As a team of counsellors we can also work together and collaborate in situations where more than one family member requires help. Members of your family may be supported by various therapists or groups at our centres. Our goal is to provide services that support the individual, the family and our community.

Counselling Services

Counsellors are available at offices in Vernon, Penticton and two Kelowna locations.

Services include individual therapy for adults, children and adolescents as well as family and couples therapy. Counsellors have expertise in the areas of anxiety and depression, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, divorce or family transition, adoption and foster care, and self-esteem.

  • Tutoring with Verity! (Kelowna)

    Verity Teagle B.A., M.A., qualified as a teacher in the UK, for many years she taught English Language and Literature to students aged 11-18. Verity specializes in one-to-one support and in facilitating small groups with students with specific needs and goals. She is dedicated to helping each student achieve their potential and endeavours to find a way to make learning relevant and fun for them. Tutoring is offered on a one-to-one or small group basis. Verity can deliver the curriculum you provide (for example, from a home-schooling provider) or design a curriculum based on the individual’s needs.  Sessions will be tailored to the individual’s learning style and preferences: for example, they might prefer project based learning; they may enjoy learning through performance and presentations; they may benefit from concentrating for only very small amounts of time in which case lots of movement could be incorporated into the lesson plan. We will find the right way together.
