Working Side-by-Side for Greater Well-Being 

“Life is best organized as a series of daring adventures from a secure base.”

– John Bowlby

About Our Team

Parallel Wellness is the passionate creation of a team of holistically-minded, counselling therapists. We share the perspective that all clients have the ability to live healthy and fulfilling lives, but sometimes need the help of a professional to realize their true potential. We work closely with our clients, in parallel as they work towards their individual goals, becoming their best selves.

We work collaboratively with clients and allied health professionals – nutritionists, medical practitioners, and alternative health practitioners – to support clients addressing their well-being from a holistic approach.

Everyone deserves to have happy and healthy relationships with themselves and the important people in their lives. Join us, as we develop Parallel Wellness.
