The pillars of Shoreline Counselling: transparency, authenticity and community are represented in the design of the office.
The glass in the walls promotes the importance of transparency, accountability and truth. This means that everyone who enters our space is informed about the process, asked to consent to each step along the way and is respected in their choices.
Authenticity is in the walls. Under many layers of drywall and insulation (to ensure soundproofing) are the words, quotes and poems that capture and encompass the human to human connection that inspired the birth of Shoreline Counselling.
The design of our group room reflects our priority to engage with the local community through seminars, group counselling, and training opportunities. Community is formed by recognizing we have more in common with each other than we realize and Shoreline Counselling provides a space to connect and discover that we are not as alone as we thought.
