Hi and welcome to Elpizo Counselling Services. Our names are Ruth and Elvis Baah-Gyebi and we are the co-founders of Elpizo Counselling. We were both educated in the United Kingdom, which is where we started our counselling practice. We are both registered psychotherapists with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, professional trainers, and part-time lecturers.
In 2003, we were invited as speakers at a Youth Conference in Peterborough Ontario. After the conference we spent some time visiting Toronto and on the way home in the plane I leaned over to Elvis and said, “Okay, I am ready to move to Ontario.” You see, prior to this trip, for years Elvis had been trying to convince me to move to Canada.
Elvis got his wish when in 2007 our residency was approved by the Canadian government and we started the arduous journey of packing our family and moving to Ontario where it was ours “to discover” and re-establish our counselling practice.
