I provide counselling for RCMP and local police forces, currently serving Canadian Military, Military Veterans, local Fire-Rescue Departments, BC Ambulance, CBSA, Corrections Canada, BC Corrections, Search & Rescue, Nurses, Doctors and Health Professionals. I work with lawyers, social workers, and others whose work brings them in contact with trauma, distress, and suffering. 


Emergency responders have the same stressors and difficulties in life as anyone, plus the added challenge of work that can negatively impact their lives, relationships, and families. Research shows that the vast majority of people who seek counselling find it helpful and effective. Finding a psychologist who understands trauma and emergency response work can help more quickly build an effective and trusting therapeutic alliance. Being proactive to seek counselling early on is very helpful to minimize distress, and ensure one stay healthy and strong.

Couples/Family Counselling

Emergency response work can take a toll on friendships, marriages, and relationships with children, parents and family. Couple or even family counselling can be an effective tool to improve marriages, relationships, family dynamics, and communication.

Critical Incident Stress Debriefings

While some debate exists in the research literature on the effectiveness of CISDs, many emergency response organizations have very active and effective Critical Incident Stress Management programs in place that include offering 'defusings' and CISDs to affected employees. CISDs are typically well received by most emergency responders, and can be an effective component of an integrated CISM program.

Resilience Workshops

Dr. Morley and his colleagues have run a number of very successful 3 Day, residential Resilience Workshops. These workshops have been offered to police officers from sections such as Homicide, Child Exploitation, Collision Analysts, Forensic Identification, Communication Operators, and general duty. The workshops provide both a practical psycho-educational component, along with an opportunity for participants to speak about their lives and their work, to process the cumulative exposure to trauma and unfixable suffering over the course of a career.
