Kenneth Van Wyk
(Registered Psychotherapist)

M. Phil., Ph. D.(candidate), MBA, RP

Ken began his career at Christian Counselling Services in 1973 as an intern and remained on staff as a counsellor. He also served as the Executive Director of CCS from 1995 to 2018. He is a clinical member of the Ontario Association of Consultants Counsellor Psychometrists and Psychotherapists. He is currently completing a doctoral program at the Institute for Christian Studies examining the post-Freudian psychoanalytic and post-modern approaches to psychotherapy.

Ken’s initial training and practice in psychotherapy was based on the client centered model of Carl Rogers and interlaced with the person centered therapy of Paul Tournier. Subsequent training in systems theory led to his psychotherapeutic interest in applying systems theory in his work with families, couples, individuals and organizations.

Ken acknowledges that all healing is God’s gift and that it is essential for him as a Christian counsellor to have a personal relationship with God who is revealed in Scripture. Ken finds that it is in exploring the painful experiences of life that client and therapist are brought to healing possibilities by the Spirit of God.
