I am providing primarily on-line counselling sessions through Zoom and offer in-person office sessions one day a week. Be safe and kind to yourself during these times.

Welcome to Otto Lim Counselling

Welcome to my website. It can be a challenge finding a counsellor, especially when you're experiencing anxiety, crisis, or overwhelm, so I hope to provide you with some information and a feel for what I do and who I am in order to make a good decision for yourself.

I offer individual, couples, and family counselling based on compassionate and effective treatment. I have an office in Vancouver. My approach is down-to-earth, collaborative, and empathic. With a bit of Buddhist introspection about how we struggle and suffer.

I will focus on your goals for change through:
• Enhancing Awareness and Motivation
• Developing Skills and Problem Solving
• Supporting Resiliency and Self-Worth

Social Work is a regulated profession, legislated under the Social Workers Act. Registered Social Workers are governed by a regulatory body and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

The counsellor certification is a national service that identifies to the public those counsellors who CCPA recognizes as qualified to provide counselling services in Canada. Obtaining the status of Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) includes recognition of standards of professional preparation, continuing education, and a formal code of ethics. As a self-regulating body, CCPA provides advice and discipline for certified members on matters of professional conduct.

I look forward to working with you.
