Find Strength & Support with Wellspring Counselling in BC

Men's Counselling in Vancouver, BC

We get it. Society tells men to “man up,” hide their emotions, and solve problems alone. But those outdated expectations can take a serious toll – on your mental health, your relationships, and your overall well-being.

At Wellspring Counselling BC, we offer a different path. It takes courage to admit you’re struggling and even more to ask for help. We’re here to honor that courage and provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your challenges, build resilience, and create the life you want.

Why Men's Counselling?

  • Break Down Barriers: Challenge the ingrained idea that asking for help is weak. Therapy gives you the space and tools to honestly unpack difficult emotions, leading to lasting change and greater strength.
  • Improve Relationships: Learn effective communication skills, navigate conflict constructively, and build deeper connections with partners, family, and friends. When you’re struggling internally, it impacts those around you – therapy benefits those relationships too.
  • Stress & Anger Management: Don’t let these emotions control you. Develop personalized strategies to cope with overwhelming stress, reduce reactivity, and find healthier outlets for anger. This benefits not only you, but everyone who interacts with you.
  • Boost Confidence & Self-Worth: Therapy helps you uncover your strengths, clarify your goals, and reconnect with a sense of purpose. This allows you to show up more fully in both your personal and professional life.

Common Issues We Address

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties, intimacy issues
  • Anger management
  • Work stress and burnout

Our Approach: Tailored to YOUR Needs

  • Evidence-Based Methods: We draw on a range of proven therapies. This includes EMDR for trauma, Emotion-Focused Therapy for deeper change, Internal Family Systems (IFS) for exploration and transformation, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to restructure unhelpful thought patterns, and more. Your therapist will discuss the best options for you.
  • Strength-Focused: Even when you’re hurting, you have existing strengths! We start by acknowledging those, building confidence and motivation for further change.
  • Compassion Meets Results: We offer a warm, supportive space, but our aim isn’t to just make you feel good in the session and then send you on your way. We want you to leave with lasting insights and real-world skills for a better life.
  • Practical & Personalized: Your challenges are unique, and your therapy should be too. Your therapist will collaborate with you to set goals that matter to YOU and select techniques that best suit your personality and needs.

Success Stories: The Power of Men's Therapy

“I was trapped in a cycle of anger, but now I have tools to understand myself and manage it”

“I gained insight into why I responded the way I did as I discovered I was feeling that my self-worth was at stake. I got tools on how to see past my emotions to make better choices”

“Therapy helped me connect with my kids in a way I never thought possible. I am able to be more caring, engaging, and constructive with them. And, amazingly, the way to this was learning how to be this way to myself that I didn’t get from my own upbringing”

A Special Message from the Director

Clients Say


Mr. Gordon is someone that captures the spirit and the heart of active engagement. He is empathic, genuine and incorporates action and creative problem solving into his practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Gordon as an effective career and personal counsellor.

Dr. Norman Amundson

I had no experience with therapy and was unsure of the whole process. Alistair made everything very accessible and unintimidating. It was clear that he puts quite a lot of effort and preparation into every session. I'm so glad that I decided to do this, and could not have asked for a better person to help me with this. I would highly recommend Alistair to anyone who has ever thought that they might benefit from talking to a professional.

Edward Hicks

I am a young professional which for a long time now, has struggled with anxiety, insecurity, and difficulty in finding effective life coping mechanisms. Alistair was referred to me by a friend and upon the first meeting, I found Alistair to be empathetic, compassionate and intuitive. I have now been seeing Alistair regularly for 6 months and through that time my anxiety has significantly decreased, I have found effective methods of dealing with stress, found support dealing with identity issues, as well as finding inner strength to get through a tough break up. Alistair again and again, went the extra mile -thank you Alistair for your candor, openness and a safe space to get support. Thank you for playing such a large role in keeping me healthy and positive.

Kahir Lalji

I have been working with Alistair Gordon as my counsellor at Wellspring for almost 6 months now and cannot begin to tell you how far I have come with his help. I have tried working with other counsellors and therapists in the past but never really found one that clicked for me. I always felt judged, unsupported, and rushed at those appointments until I booked my first appointment with Wellspring and with Allistair. To anyone on the fence about booking an appointment or engaging in therapy: if you are willing to do the work, you couldn't ask for a better partner in your healing journey.

Elyse Renouf

When I decided to find a counsellor, I tried to find someone that I could relate to, someone that is like-minded and down-to-earth and with Alistair I really found the right person. He uses an integrative approach, showed me techniques to relax and get aware of my emotions, and helped me see things in a new perspective. Of course this is an ongoing process but I enjoy meeting and working with Alistair every time. The downtown office is a very neutral place - not too intimate, not too clinical - which is helpful to overcome apprehension, especially the first couple of times. What I find remarkable is that Alistair almost always knows what I'm trying to say, even if I can't put it into words. Working with Alistair helped me a lot and it was the right decision to put my trust in him.

Max A

Alistair really cares about you the person, and I could really feel him trying to tackle my challenges. He was also very available for off-session contact via text and email. I think he did a great job with confronting me where I needed it. Alistair always could remember the important peoples' names in my personal life, which really helped with talking about my problems. I really felt like I was talking to a friend.

Michael S.

Alistair is an awesome counsellor. He has been so helpful in working with me through some tough times in my life. He's always been available to chat with me in-between sessions. I'd recommend Alistair to anyone - he's really the ideal counsellor in my view.


I enjoy how sessions are collaborative where I can take the lead for the direction of what we talk about, and at the same time I know that Alistair will offer helpful guidance and insight along the way. I also like how we focus on the future instead of just the past. I find this to be empowering and helpful to move forward in life.
