Perminder Hundle, M.Ed
Registered Clinical Counsellor
Hi, I am Perminder,
I am fluent in English and Punjabi. I have 26 years experience working with children and youth in the education system and 11 years as a Counsellor.
I am a daughter of an immigrant. I have struggled with my identity and living in a culture that was in contrast to my family’s original culture. I faced racism and bullying as a child and now as an adult I am aware of micro aggressions and how I navigate in the professional world.
As an adult, I am raising my own children and trying to balance our core family values with the values of the dominate culture.
I work from a client-centred approach which means the client actively takes the reins during each therapy session, while I, the therapist, acts mainly as a guide or a source of support for the client. My client is in charge of where we go in therapy as you, the client, knows what is best for you in your life.
I am trained in Sandplay and art therapy – both modalities help my clients to express their feelings or emotions in a non-verbal way. I am also trained to work with clients that experience self-harm where I can assess for suicide risk and help to develop safety plans with them.
I have found in this journey of life, we cannot do it alone
we need the support of others.
My analogy for life:
Journey of life can be like kayaking
Sometimes the waters are rough
Sometimes people will try to knock you over
Sometimes you’ll give up and want to stop
Sometimes you find some kayakers who go at your pace and you encourage each other
You need strength, confidence and resilience to keep going
So don’t get wrapped up in what’s going on around you
Don’t let others rock your boat, focus
You are in charge of your journey
