Anam Turas: Celtic for “Journey of the Soul”

Mary-Margaret Caldwell, CCC-CCPA

M.Ed., M.Sc., B.Sc

Individual counselling and psychotherapy for adults

Hello and welcome,

I am Mary-Margaret Caldwell of Anam Turas Counselling.  I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC-CCPA) with more than 35 years of experience  working with people with mental health concerns and with people with disabilities.  My business name, ‘Anam Turas,’ is a Celtic term meaning ‘soul journey’ and my business logo, a Celtic knot, symbolises the interconnectedness of all things and continuity of life.  

I have offices in Parksville and Nanaimo, B.C.

I offer individual therapy to adults with issues such as: grief and loss including pet loss and pet bereavement, life transitions, including retirement, adjusting to changing health status or making decisions re health care for both humans and pets, and stress, anxiety and depression. I also offer groups on writing one’s life story, adjusting to loss, especially loss of a pet, and mindfulness.

I believe that we can be strengthened and transformed by our adaptation to the changes and challenges in our lives.  Just as I am on my life journey, it is my hope to assist you on your life journey.

I am grateful to live and work on the unceded traditional territories of the Snuneymuxw and Snaw-naw-as First Nations. 



I am registered for direct billing with Blue Cross, Greenshield, FNHA and several EFAP providers.


Fees are $135.00 + GST per hour. A sliding scale is possible for students and those facing financial challenges.


A 15-minute consultation is available free of charge.
