Sather Counselling & Consulting Inc.



Children develop a positive sense of self when
their parents delight in being with them
and when they have a feeling of being safe and protected.
Yes, parenting is challenging and life can be difficult at times.
Relationships have ups and downs; ruptures occur and repairs are necessary.
Children and parents who work with me have an opportunity
to explore their challenges, in a nurturing environment.
Parents deepen their understanding of their child’s needs,
their relationship, and discover new ways of relating
to help them get to the next stepping stone in their development.
Together we discover how secure parent-child relationships
can be supported and strengthened,
as they continue on their journey of connection.

About Me

Let me introduce myself, my name is Dawn Sather. My mother is Scottish and my father is Norwegian. I am a visitor to the Lkwungen territory, also known as the Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations. I am a Registered Social Worker and a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I am passionate about my work. Since 2000, I have been practicing in the mental health field with Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations. My experiences, as a parent and a therapist, provide me with the greatest opportunity for life long growth and development.

As a mother and grandmother, I smile with gratitude, for there is always a gift in every experience.


The initial 90-minute session is $160.00.  The regular 60-minute session is $120.00.  Sessions may be provided via secure video ONCALL platform, phone or in-person office.                                           

All payments for services provided are due after each session (cheque, cash, tap, e-transfer). 

I am a registered vendor for the following insurers:

  • First Nations Health Authority

I ask for 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment; otherwise you may be billed for the session. If you need to communicate via email between appointments, any discussion over 15 minutes, you will be billed on a pro-rated basis according to my hourly fee.
