My name is Wendy Hart and I’m a Registered Psychologist practicing in St. Albert, AB.  I’m excited to announce that I am now serving clients in the Edmonton Region as well as all neighbouring areas.  

I have to tell you, I’m absolutely thrilled that you’ve found me through my website, and WELCOME!

At Living Well by Design, I help my clients create fulfilling relationships. It may be the relationship you have with yourself, a relationship with a family member, co-worker, a new romantic relationship, a relationship in the “stuck” stage, or even a relationship that may be looking to end.

Many people don't realize how capable of change they actually are. Do you realize how much YOU MATTER when it comes to changing your life and relationships? Your dreams, your desires, your thoughts, your worries, your stories, and your strengths: These are at the center of our work together.

You have the power to design a life you truly love. It's my  job to teach you how to do that.

What people say about us

Coming out to the Peer Support meet-ups reduces my isolation

Being with others who have a shared experience of depression is helpful because people there have lower expectations of me, they are less judgemental than others and we help each other, by sharing our experiences of depression and anxiety. The groups don’t make demands of me and that helps when I’m depressed – I have problems with personal obligation. Coming out to the meet-ups reduces my isolation and keeps me active. By helping others, I feel like I am helping myself.

Peer Support Attendee

Having someone who could listen to me was very beneficial

After having therapy with Community Living Well I feel a lot better in myself, much more settled and comfortable. Getting things off my chest and having someone who would listen to me was very beneficial as I felt like I had been living in my own head. I was aware of techniques such as writing things down and talking to people I trusted but these weren’t actions that I had ever implemented in the past.

We often know we need a better work/life balance, but how? I appreciated Shezlina's article, here's the quick summary. The end of the day ritual is what I'm trying this week ...

A counselor can also act as the psychological healer when the need arises. S/he will help in healing the innumerable wounds on your (both) heart and mind. S/he may help you in learning how to make amends for each other. It could be a time-consuming process, but s/he will have the patience and persistence achieve the desired results.

A counselor may not use any external tools or medications for healing. But s/he will skillfully use experience and specialization to make both of you to speak out your heart and mind. It’s when s/he can point out the positives and negatives in you and your spouse.

Contrary to assumed belief, counseling is more than advising and convincing. It’s a process of bringing clarity to your thinking and serenity to your approach. S/he can make you willing to listen to your spouse and vice versa.

Acceptance: A counselor will help you accept each other as you are. S/he may also train you how to understand each others’ opinions; likes and dislikes; emotions, fears, ego, love, care, sensuality, etc. S/he will show you how to carve out a comfortable and protective space within your mind and heart for your spouse and vice versa.

RID-Elimination: A counselor can help in eliminating Resentments, Irritation, and Discontentment (RID) for each other. S/he does more than just talking and convincing. S/he is exploring the deeply hidden love and care for each other which is buried under an avalanche of RID. Melting of the barriers may be time-consuming. An expert counselor can make it happen within the shortest possible time.

Change-Management: After getting an initial breakthrough in achieving acceptance and melting down RID, the counselor will start consolidating the ground for meaningful communication with each other. At this stage, s/he may bring both of you to the counseling room and let you talk to each other. S/he may also closely monitor the conversations by being present during the communication.

S/he may not interrupt the conversation unless the situation threatens to go out of control. In such situations, s/he may just break the session and advice for more individual sessions. There s/he may try and reshape your approach and attitude for each other in a more friendly manner. It could be a time-consuming process, but eventually, the counselor will be able to bring you both onto a common platform.

Awakening-Awareness: Most of the marriage’s conflicts are known to start from the internal conflicts within the couple. They could be related to lower self-esteem, inferiority complex, possessive-nature, jealousy, misunderstanding, etc. resentments may not happen overnight. The pot starts boiling and spills over one final day.

An expert counselor may be able to make you aware of the series of events and the real causes behind them during your life of conflicts. She could be able to hold a mirror in which you can see your own faults and shortcomings. Of course, she does it for both of you. The probability of a new life with each other increases considerably after consultations with the marriage counselor.

Living Well and Dying Well: tales of counselling older people

‘Helen’s approach to counselling older adults is humanising, compassionate, and relationally deep. This unique text brings to life the reality and the potential of working with this client group. An invaluable read for counsellors and psychotherapists working in this field.’
Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling Psychology, University of Roehampton


‘Living Well and Dying Well is exquisitely written in its depiction of therapeutic encounters with older adults. Kewell’s searingly insightful and fearlessly honest reflections are at once challenging and inspiring. The reader not only learns of the interplay between theory and practice but is invited into the relatively unchartered territory of psychotherapy with the profoundly old. Rich with personal story, Living Well and Dying Well salutes old age and explores how we can engage therapeutically with curiosity and true dignity. This is a profound, transformative and pioneering piece in the emerging field of work with older adults. I imagine that, with an ageing population, the wisdom and beauty held within these pages will only grow in relevance over time for counsellors and para-professionals alike.’
Felicity Chapman, clinical social worker and author of Counselling and Psychotherapy with Older People in Care: a support guide

‘This a timely and important book that takes a fresh approach to a relatively neglected area of counselling and psychotherapy. Writing in the first person, Helen Kewell provides us with a personal and moving account of work with a number of clients facing the challenges of later life. The title refers to ‘Tales of Counselling with Older People’. However, this book is far from anecdotal. The encounters with clients provide the basis for moving inductively to theory and principles, informed by a strong underpinning literature. While the tone is warm and engaging, there is nothing anodyne here. We are challenged to reflect on the social construction of ageing and how the assumptions that can follow from this impinge upon our practice.’
Dr David Bott, Principal Lecturer in Psychotherapy, University of Brighton


‘I loved all these stories, but it was when I came to the one about Kate that I realised I really trusted the author. Few writers would have discussed problems that they could not solve. How often do we write about the painful process of learning to be an effective therapist? This book will help many people become more effective helpers of older and grieving clients.’
Anne Wyatt-Brown, Emeritus Professor in Linguistics, University of Florida, and former co-editor of the Journal of Aging, Humanities and the Arts

Helen Kewell

Helen Kewell qualified as a humanistic counsellor in 2015, having spent most of her career as a management consultant. Her new career path was as necessary as it was dramatic, having experienced loss and chronic illness during the preceding years. During her training, Helen became profoundly influenced by existential and experiential approaches to therapy and, almost inadvertently, became fascinated and inspired by working with older adults. She considers this area of psychotherapeutic work to be underrepresented in literature and under-resourced and hopes to continue to promote a wider dialogue on it and prompt others to do the same. She runs her own private counselling practice in Sussex and continues to volunteer as a counsellor and supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care.

These counsellors are committed to helping Regent students by offering discounted rates. Rates vary between individual counsellors, and it is your responsibility to establish the rate and make payment to the counsellor of your choice.


This service is self-referral. A binder with the professional bios, areas of specialization, and contacts of participating counsellors is available outside Office 227 (Associate Dean of Students' Office). On the basis of this information, you decide upon the appropriate counsellor for your need.

The College does not provide either medical or psychiatric assistance and hospitalization. For psychiatric help, the individual’s medical doctor is the appropriate referral professional.

UBC also offers a counselling service, which is accessible to Regent students. While this counselling service is not faith based, it offers qualified, experienced therapists who can provide assessment and referral to other resources on campus and in the community.

Spiritual Direction Service

Regent College acknowledges the transformational benefits of Spiritual Direction and offers students the opportunity to engage in spiritual direction through the Spiritual Direction Service.


We understand spiritual direction as a practice of spiritual companionship that helps us to discern God’s loving presence and activity in our lives as well as God’s gracious invitations to us.

Spiritual direction offers:

  • companionship from a trained individual who creates contemplative space for attending to our experience of life and our experience of God
  • a reflective process, rather than a directive one
  • an emphasis on nurturing our personal relationship and encounter with Christ
  • an integration of heart knowledge and head knowledge
  • encouragement toward discerning God’s voice amidst many other voices in our lives
  • a heightened awareness of the Sacred in all of life and the movements of the Spirit in us


Regent College is privileged to have a network of spiritual directors in the Vancouver area who have agreed to offer discounted rates for Regent students. Spiritual direction is offered on an individual basis or in a group, depending on your needs and resources. The rates vary according to the type of direction and the individual director. It is your responsibility to establish the rate and make payment to the director of your choice.

Students can access the Spiritual Direction Service by contacting John Lunn [email protected]

The Spiritual Direction Service is facilitated by the Dean of Students Office for all students studying at Regent College.

Living Well Forums

Living Well Forums are offered once or twice a term and focus on various topics related to the student experience and their spiritual formation. Some of the topics we have covered recently include spirituality in the daily life of students, stress, how to disagree well, depression and anxiety.

Helping You Live Well


“Living Well Counseling not only enables one to live well, it is ‘life changing.’ ” ~Client


Life is filled with challenges and changes. There are traumas in our past that hold us captive. There are harmful habits that we need help overcoming. Life’s uncertainties can leave us feeling hopeless. Relationships can cause deep wounds. Circumstances leave us broken and we cannot put the pieces back together. We often hide our struggles, feeling shame. We can feel so stuck that we see no hope for a better future. The truth is, we all experience times in our life when we struggle. We all have hurts that need healing. We all have brokenness that needs restoration.
