Caledon counselling and consulting provides both behavioural consultation and clinical counselling.

Behavioural consultation is offered to clients over the age of six that have various skill deficits or maladaptive behaviours that are impacting their quality of life. Behavioural consultation is home based and includes working with the client’s entire support network. Clinical counselling is goal oriented and holistic. The approach used is dependent on “what works” for the individual.


Robyn McElveen has been working in mental health for over 20 years. She initially started working as a behaviour interventionist with children and as a behaviour consultant for children and adults with various needs including, autism, brain injury and mental health concerns. Robyn has worked as a clinical counsellor with children, adolescents and adults for the health authority. She has spent years educating herself on evidence-based practices and appreciates the privilege of supporting her clients throughout their life-span.

Clinical Counselling 

The two primary theoretical orientations I use in counselling are person-centred theory and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is one of the most effective and well researched theories in counselling psychology. The two central tenants of CBT include the belief that our thoughts influence our emotions and behaviours and the notion that how we behave can affect our emotions and thought patterns. Changing any one of these components will cause change in the individual. I work with the individual to understand their thoughts, emotions and behaviours, and help them discover how to make significant changes. Person-centred theory relates to my relationship with the individual.

Therapeutic goals are always selected by the individual and I believe in providing a warm, safe, non-judgmental environment. My therapeutic approach utilizes humour and encouragement. It is also an active treatment modality in which the individual is often given homework to practice new techniques. Real life practice helps ensure that strategies are effective and gives the individual the tools to use in a multitude of situations once therapy ends. Counselling is always individualized and my be adapted depending on the needs of the individual.
