Hannah Zimmering, B.SC.
Hannah Zimmering is a Provisional Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. She holds a Masters in Counselling from the University of Calgary and has completed a one year training in Addiction Counselling through Vancouver Community College. She holds a B.SC. from Dalhousie University.
Hannah works with individuals who are facing challenges related to life-transitions, relationship difficulties, self esteem, trauma, grief, and loss. She has experience working with youth and adults who struggle with addictions, anxiety, depression, and the impact of trauma. Hannah believes counselling can help provide individuals with insight into patterns which are no longer working, and with that knowledge, help facilitate the process of change. Her approach emphasizes building on skills and resources that a person already possesses in order to help them recapture their lives from their struggles. She works collaboratively with clients on self-directed goals, and is attentive to individual needs. Her therapeutic process welcomes the opportunity to think out loud; to explore challenges, thoughts and feelings within a safe, and non-judging environment. Hannah has trained in Narrative Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in the treatment of trauma. She utilizes a client-centered, Mindfulness Based approach.
