Christina Bell, M.C.

Edmonton Counselling Psychologist


I am deeply passionate about supporting people with dating and relationship issues, anxiety, betrayal trauma, and pornography addiction. I use techniques from a variety of approaches including trauma therapies (EMDR, somatic experiencing), mindfulness meditation, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy. With couples, I have extensive training the Gottman Method and enjoy helping couples cultivate a healthy relationship who are considering getting married.

Many of us have gone through stressful experiences that we hold onto. These situations can include breakups, sexual betrayal, or messages from a critical parent. I help my clients to process these events and feel a better sense of emotional balance. When we feel emotionally healthy, we make better decisions, connect with others, and are happier.

Clients share that they connect with my accepting nature, sense of humour, and the resources I’ve created on my website. My clients also find that it is helpful to talk to someone outside of their family and friends who can offer an objective opinion. Right now I’m currently accepting clients and have office hours in the afternoons and on Saturday mornings.
