About Stuart Cameron
We’re excited to welcome Stuart Cameron as our latest therapist joining MyLife in January 2023! Stuart is a Registered Social Worker and Member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. He completed his Master of Social Work at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto and graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Guelph.
Stuart was born and raised in Guelph and has a lifelong interest in the human experience. He has experience working with a wide range of populations across different sectors including child and youth mental health, addictions, cognitive disabilities, corrections, and child protection.
Stuart also has a passion working with young adults and professionals to help guide them through challenges such as social anxiety, career changes, drug and alcohol addictions, and issues with identity. Stuart is described by his clients as having a warm, calm, and welcoming demeanour. He strives to make clients comfortable early on in treatment, which helps allow clients to open up, share, and work through some of their more difficult thoughts and feelings
At the age of 21, Stuart began his own recovery journey from alcohol and substance abuse/addiction and he continues his sobriety work today. Stuart strongly believes in the importance of support for recovery and has both been sponsored and been a sponsor for many years, in a non-denominational setting. He specialises in empowering individuals to find their own strength and become more self-reliant, away from their addictions.
Stuart draws from several theoretical frameworks to guide his work including cognitive behavioural therapy, existential therapy, person centred therapy, and narrative therapy.
In his spare time, Stuart enjoys spending quality time with his wife and young daughter, thru-hiking, web development, esports, and mountain biking.
