About Akeiko Rawn, MNTCW

Narrative Therapist & Consultant

I work from a narrative framework which positions you as the expert in your own life. In separating the problem from the person a multiplicity of stories begin to emerge.

In working alongside children and youth, we explore ways to outsmart the tactics of anxiety and promote the unique skills of ADHD. I create respectful and outside the box support with autistic students.  I also work with children and youth who have experienced complex trauma, we journey beyond surviving and develop new kinds of living, thickening preferred identities.

Together we explore  alternatives and take problems to task, through play, therapeutic letters and the help of humour and creativity. Session are filled with curious questions that lead to never before had conversations.

Areas of Practice:

  • ASD
  • Anxiety
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • School Support
  • PDD-NOS
  • Self Harm

I hold a Master of Narrative Therapy and a double minor BA in psychology and dialogue. To continue my professional development I volunteer at the Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy and attend a variety of conferences. Currently I am an active member of a Local Action Team (LAT), which is part of the CYMHSU: Child Youth and Mental Health and Substance Use as part of the partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC Ministry of Health.

 I am a professional member of the Australian Counselling Association – level 2 ( ACA) and Canadian Clinical Counselling Association (CCPA)
