Kindred Counselling Name & Graphic Meaning

Kindred means a special connection between two people; this highlights the relationship-focused services we value at Kindred Counselling. The Ammonite graphic symbolizes change and evolution which is a metaphor for entering into the therapeutic process.


Kindred Counselling is a thriving private practice and has been in business for 7 years. Tara Marshall is the founder and is an RCC, Synergetic Play Therapist and Approved EMDR Consultant. There are currently four very valued associates who you can read about in the Kindred Team Tab. We have a therapy playroom and an adult EMDR office with all the latest technology used in EMDR therapy.


Many of our clients say that it was our website that drew them into wanting to connect and book services with us. So, it is important that all the associates at Kindred Counselling authentically align with Kindred Counselling’s mission and values. We believe in creating a welcoming, accepting, and supportive atmosphere for our clients. Our mission is to empower our clients through professional person-centred counselling services. Furthermore, we value using a trauma-informed, culturally competent, and ecological perspective in our clinical practice.
