Welcome to Life Wise
We are team of experienced Registered Clinical Counsellors who believe in a research-based approach to therapy. We are inclusive, accessible, and offer a personalized therapeutic experience. In addition to providing in person counselling at our Burnaby and Langley offices, we offer secure online counselling.
Counselling is an experience and opportunity for clients to explore their innate resiliency, reclaim their mind and body, and access their inherent wisdom during times of stress.
My name is Dr. Clair and I work as a Family Physician in Langley. Many of my patients come to me asking for recommendations on potential counselors. Searching online can be overwhelming and exhausting. Since I started referring my patients to Lifewise Clinic, the feedback had been nothing but positive. I highly recommend Neelam Olk with MC, RCC designation for all your mental health needs.

Areas Of Practice
We've got you covered.
Anxiety is the anticipation of impending danger. Our bodies prepare for this perceived threat by transitioning to a state of fight or flight.
Our bodies experience drastic changes emotionally, mentally, and physically during pregnancy and postpartum. Managing these changes can be overwhelming, lonely, and scary.
Depression is a state of deep sadness, heaviness, and even immobilization. We can feel disconnected from ourselves and the world.

Anger is a strong emotion that causes profound physiological arousal in the body. Learn how to manage your anger so that you can choose how to respond appropriately and productively.
Trauma is unresolved pain that lives in the mind and body. Together, we can re-learn safety in your body and emotionally heal from your lived experiences.
Reconnect, heal old wounds, and let your relationship flourish through vulnerability and discovery.
Substance use can be a means to escape from a heavy reality. It elicits shame, guilt, and low self-esteem. We can support you in gaining more control so that you learn to make conscious, productive choices and break bad habits.
Communication techniques, boundary work, and gaining insights to individual experiences in the family system can profoundly change the dynamic of relationships.
Address your relational challenges in a safe and supportive space so that you feel heard and understood. You and your partner will learn how to communicate effectively while attending to each other’s emotions, perceptions, and underlying needs.
Unhealthy patterns can ultimately change the dynamic of relationships and lead to unnecessary resentment and stress. The research shows that it is possible to break through negative cycles with the support of evidence-based treatments.
The goal of couple's therapy is to create a more secure emotional bond. The research shows that trust, intimacy, and overall satisfaction can drastically increase through approaches like Emotionally Focused Couple's Therapy and the Gottman Method for couples.
Growth lies within discomfort. Take the risk, access your vulnerability with your partner, and allow your relationship to flourish.
Healing is possible. Approaches that are grounded in science will be used to help resolve your challenges. We aim to support you by getting to the heart of the matter.
