Adsum Counselling

Adsum Counselling is located in downtown Vancouver (near St. Paul's Hospital).

We offer individual and family counselling sessions to all ages.

What does "Adsum" mean? Adsum is the Latin word for "present". It is also part of my family's motto. So when I was trying to decide what to call my business, I liked the idea of incorporating some of my heritage but what really resonated with me was the idea that being truly present with people is an essential component of effective counselling. Also that one of the goals in counselling is to help people be more present in their daily lives. One of my close friends also offered that it sounds like "add some" as in counselling can help people "add something" to their lives.
