TESTIMONIAL – Dr. David Dyment MD, CCFP says,
“As a family physician in Burnaby B.C., I have been referring patients to Claire Maisonneuve for the past 27 years. The feedback I have received has been remarkable. She gets results and I would strongly recommend Ms Maisonneuve for anyone seeking couples or individual therapy.”
Over 30 years of helping clients make break-throughs in their lives.
The Number One Issue with Anxiety!
“It can make you believe some crazy stuff. It can make you worry needlessly about things that haven’t happened yet and maybe never will. It can make you think that someone is mad at you when they really aren’t, or that they don’t care about you when they really do. Anxiety often takes you to the worst-case scenario.” Locke Hughes
Three Steps to Break Free from Anxiety
3 Words to Describe Anxious Behaviour
“Avoidance – Avoidance – Avoidance”
You’ll stay away from the things that make you anxious – parties, crowds, public speaking, freeways, bridges, heights, paying bills. Anxious people search for ways out. And that in the long-term can seriously detract from the quality of life that is rightfully yours.
Counselling at the Alpine Clinic can offer you the most profound opportunity to make lasting changes in your life that will result in greater peace and happiness.
Tamara Bell – TV Host doing Neurofeedback for Anxiety 3:50 mins
“I sleep better, I ‘m not feeling depressed, the constant anxiety has gone, my thoughts don’t spiral.”
“After the first session I felt better for almost 24 hours. Then I felt the familiar surge of anxiety come back and slid back into that dark place I’ve been for many years.”
“After each treatment the negative feelings went away, and are now staying away.”
“I’m only 7 sessions in but there is no way I’ll turn back now.”
“The staff is amazing. Positive, helpful, supportive, friendly. And the Neurofeedback is totally worth it. It’s hard to spend money on your own wellness sometimes but this makes everything better.”
“The only other thing that has helped me like this was 2 weeks in the Peruvian jungle on an Ayahuasca retreat. I’d try this first though :)”
“For me it was one of the best decisions of my life. I was short tempered and used to do lots of self talks and analyzes.”
“I have noticed the change of how I was processing and behaving differently after 4th or 5th sessions.”
“I have been practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness techniques for long time. What I have achieved in terms of inner state of peace and calmness with 20 sessions of Direct Neurofeedback equals to few years of constant deep meditation practices.”
“The team, Claire and Laura, are amazingly professional, comforting, responsive, caring and honest!”
“I was so skeptical at first, read many articles about it and consulted with few expert friends, it took me a year to decide about taking the sessions and my conclusion: This technology works.”

Individual counselling is a process through which you would work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore your feelings, beliefs, or behaviour. The process can help you work through challenging circumstances, identify aspects of your life that you would like to change, resolve difficult relationships with others, set personal goals, or work towards a desired change. …. more
Neurofeedback is a drug free therapeutic approach to overcoming anxiety, stress and other performance inhibiting emotions. It provides immediate results, in fewer and shorter sessions with a greater ease of treatment. It is completely natural, painless, effortless, without any side effects and has lasting benefits for those who prefer an alternative to medication, or who wish to try something in addition to or instead of counselling ….more
What you need to know is that “anxiety doesn’t just go away” over time. If you don’t attend to it, it starts creeping up in different areas and over time can make your life shrink! The cost of anxiety when left untreated will take its toll:
On your body: tension headaches, G.I. problems.
On your relationships: irritability and increased conflict.
On your family: impatience and on edge with your kids.
On your future: unable to pursue your dreams ….more
Testimonial – Anxiety
“After going to a bunch of different places, finally with Claire I learned some helpful things about myself and picked up some skills that have changed how I deal with feeling anxious and worrying that I’m going to have a panic attack. Now I know I can manage my emotions, they’re not managing me, and I don’t wake up wondering how bad my day might get.” C.W. Vancouver
“My decision to choose Alpine was probably the important decision that I have ever made in my life and I will always consider Skyelar Napier one of the most influential people in my life. I am so blessed to have this relationship and am so grateful for all that the clinic and the professionals who work there have, and continue to do, to help me make the best of each day.” G. W.
“I felt trapped by my past, was continually bombarded with negative thinking, and was steadily gaining weight. Through the counseling I received from Claire …I was able to accept my past, calm the negative thoughts, and begin to lose weight. Claire offered me practical skills to deal with adverse situations and enabled me to re-take control of my life…. I now feel free from my past and look to the future with confidence.” P.M. Delta
“The professionalism I encountered enabled me to take the leap of faith – and accept that I truly needed my counsellor’s help. The structure and continuity enabled step-by-step progress. The building blocks are solid. The timeline – given the massive result – was short, just months in duration.” L.B. Surrey
“Claire I want to thank you so much. I did not know what to expect when I began work with you, but now know how pivotal it was in moving beyond past events. I can honestly say that I feel myself again and that life has regained it’s spark. You truly are gifted in your work. As you have helped many, thank you for playing this role in my life.” C. C.
