Psychotherapy is often misunderstood and seen as something to avoid. In reality psychotherapy offers a way to deepen our self-awareness and provide you with scientifically validated techniques to use in order to strengthen yourself as an individual. I use a variety of approaches (Adlerian, CBT, Existential, Person Centred, Mindfulness and Strengths based etc) and tailor it to the needs of my clients.

My approach to psychotherapy is combining mind, body, and spirit. I am a Certified Integrative Body Psychotherapy practitioner and see that the body is essential for healing from psychological pain. Many of our psychological issues stem from traumas sustained in early childhood or later in adulthood. Talking about trauma will only take us so far in our healing and to resolve our emotional patterns, we need to engage the body in the healing process. We store all of our traumas in the body and this is the place where ultimately we need to go to heal the injuries. The body knows how to heal and be well and we need to tap into its inherent wisdom.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

The motivations for individuals seeking out psychotherapy are as varied and unique as people themselves. Some engage in psychotherapy to explore challenging experiences or situations which they’d like to talk about in a safe and confidential setting. These might include issues such as loss and grief, relationship issues, separation, or other major life transitions, or experiences from the past. Others ask for help in how to change and or deal with certain emotional or behavioral traits. Some people seek Talk Therapy to help them explore a general feelings that their lives are not quite right, or to cope with feelings of depression, while others look to Talk Therapy as part of their efforts to discover or create meaning in their lives. Individuals are often...(view profile to read more)

Often we know what we need to do differently, it's not that we don't have the wisdom, it's that it can be hard to apply! Doing Psychotherapy with me is a gentle and compassionate process of uncovering and tending to the old wounds and patterns that can be steering our behaviour and leading us astray. This frees up the space to live in the present with mindfulness, and create the future that we dream of!

In T2T 0C2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Life is difficult for all of us and it's often a trap when we focus on "just being happy." The truth is we've evolved for survival, NOT HAPPINESS. Happiness is a by-product of living a meaningful and fulfilling life. How do we do that? By living in alignment with our values, that is, what matters to us and what we really are about. It's been said that we're either living for our resume or for our eulogy. My therapy is called ACT - a dynamic new approach based on mindfulness, acceptance and committed action.

Specific treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Dialectical Behavioural Therapy can be effective in helping people with the symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions such as mood disorders. Cognitive distortions often take the place of more rational thinking and once these distortions can be discovered, even the realization of the distortion can help a client learn new ways of thinking and thus feeling. Such a distortion could be something like 'all or nothing thinking'. A client may present suggesting that "things are always this way." By finding positive exceptions to this we can realize that things are never all good or all bad.

Whether we face challenges, recognize negative thinking, behaviour, or relationship patterns or we simply strive for personal growth and potential psychotherapy can be very beneficial. It helps us to understand why we do what we do; it helps us to understand who we are and how to initiate a change. It is important to learn how to live here and now and to be able to say hat is important to us. I incorporate elements of psychodynamic therapy and I agree that increased self-awareness can initiate a change.

Psychotherapy takes a lot of courage to begin but it will help you grow and live the life you desire. I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy. I draw from multiple different theories because I want help you in a way that suits your need and personality. The primary theories I use are Attachment theory, Emotion Focused Therapy and Interpersonal Neurobiology. Most of our distress comes from our unhealthy view that we have of ourselves, our emotions, others and the world. Our time together will be processing these beliefs, developing new ones and fostering strengths and coping strategies.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Are my personal and emotional struggles, anxiety, and depression just “all in the mind” or is there a biological basis to it? Most psychotherapy theories only focus on the “mind” and often fail to address the biological causes and treatment of mental illness. As a psychopharmacologist, Dr Mervin is uniquely equipped to counsel people with mental disorders concerning all their antidepressant and medication-related issues. His integrative approach recognizes the importance of biological (medical & pharmacological), psychological (emotions, cognition's and behavior), social (family and community), and spiritual (faith and religion) factors.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

My approach to Interpersonal Psychotherapy (ITP) is a safe, respectful, natural, and dynamic interactive process. I view the client-therapist experience as an interpersonal relationship that is founded on the principles of mutual respect and genuine caring. The therapeutic focus is largely on current relationships and how those relationships are perceived in a client’s life. Additionally, I encourage the exploration of conscious and unconscious emotional issues. Most persons possess a wealth of undeveloped strengths, assets, and capacities. Most of us use only a small percentage of our physical, mental, spiritual, and relational potentialities. By accessing a range of therapeutic techniques s....

Psychotherapy is a process of gaining an awareness of one's issues which leads to improving the understanding of one's issues. Following this, the process of psychotherapy is to follow through with some form of therapeutic action to either improve the awareness, increase one's understanding or resolve the issues that one originally came in to psychotherapy for.

Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1B3 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

In therapy, I play a small role in creating a space for you to talk openly, and confidentially, about your thoughts, feelings and concerns. I work collaboratively with my clients to set each session agenda, to develop meaningful goals and to evaluate our progress together. I am transparent about how I conceptualize my client's situation and how ready they may be to make changes. You may find it unique that I was trained to avoid note-taking during therapy in order to be fully present for my clients.
