Welcome to Marshall & Associates


After over 30 years of providing counselling services for the Mid Island area it is time for change.

Marshall & Associates is a group of counsellors, psychotherapists and social workers with years of success, assisting clients through difficult times to new levels of personal wellbeing, understanding and inner strength. Established in 1988, we were the first full time private Nanaimo counselling practice. Many years of clinical experience and professional training compliment our dedication in supporting your journey to health.

During the COVID crisis we have explored working online as a way to connect and work with our clients. We will continue to offer counselling services in this way and have made the decision to close the physical downtown office.

Generation Farms is an important division of our counselling practice. We see a limited number of people in person at Generation Farms with a nature based and equine facilitated focus. Being outside offers many natural healing opportunities and allows for physical distancing in a safe way.

A wide range of counselling specialties is available with our group. All therapists are trained in traditional and innovative therapies allowing us to offer methods best suited to your personal needs and style. We offer counselling to individuals, relationship and marriage counselling, family therapy, child and youth counselling and services to workplaces and organizations. Our success is measured in the tremendous change our clients accomplish as they work with us.
