George Bielay knows the “fit” between a client and their counsellor is the number one predictor of success.  A good counselling relationship improves outcomes in a shorter length of time.  But finding a counsellor with that “fit” can be difficult.  Clients looking for a therapist by browsing the many counselling websites is like “throwing a dart at a dart board”.  It can be frustrating!  Finding a good counsellor or therapist is too important to be left to chance.

For that reason, George developed Waypoint Counselling with the goal of providing the public with professional and tailored support in being matched to the most appropriate counsellor based on their needs and experience.  This matching process to find the best counsellor in BC for you or your family can happen a variety of ways:

  • Call or text George at 250-888-0979   This is your fastest way to get connected!
  • Send us a message
  • Schedule a time to talk with George

Alternatively, you can select your own counsellor by looking through our Counsellors in BC .  Our list of communities and counsellors is growing!  We now have counsellors located in Victoria, Oak Bay, Cadboro Bay, Cordova Bay, View Royal, Esquimalt, Langford, Sooke, Colwood, and Ladysmith, BC.  We will be soon adding counsellors covering Duncan, Cowichan Bay, Nanaimo and Surrey BC.  At Waypoint, our commitment is to support individuals, families and couples to experience excellent counselling from therapists that provide that important “fit” for the best outcomes.

George Bielay has extensive experience including his work with marriage and family therapy clinics, community mental health agencies, residential treatment centres, employee assistance programs and post-secondary schools and universities.  He has had a thriving private practice for over 15 years and has taught at the post-secondary level.  He is also a Clinical Supervisor to professional therapists located in Victoria, BC, including graduate students and lay counsellors.
