Our thoughts have a huge impact on how we view and act in the world. I will work with you to explore how your thoughts have been influenced by your experiences growing up, as well as by significant life events, loss and/or trauma. I use approaches from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Mindfulness to help you calm your mind and invite you to consider the possibilty of expanding your perceptions of life experiences as a way of creating changes in yourself and in relationships.

In my work with individual clients I tend to use a combination of a Solution Focused Brief Approach which is based on the assumption that people have the ability to construct solutions that can enhance their lives. People are viewed as experts in their own lives by examining what they are doing that is working and helping them apply this knowledge to take action to solve their problems. I also incorporate a mindfulness approach to help individuals who may be experiencing anxiety, fear, worry or overwhelm. Mindfulness teaches people to live in the moment and apply a variety of strategies to help overcome difficulties as they arise. Hypnosis is also incorporated when necessary.

In North America, we usually see psychotherapy and counselling as synonymous but other places there's a distinction. In counselling, the therapy feels more directive to make change happen. It feels like you are getting educated on your problem and the how to's to move forward without the advice or suggestions. Psychotherapy is much deeper and a lengthier process. Therapy at this level means we are diving into deep topics and perhaps even past history that led a person to develop the way they did. We address deep-rooted issues and perhaps even personalities and patterns that are habitual. Either path you will receive what you need or seek to address the concern thoroughly.

Been speaking with people in a therapeutic way for years now, and it still is so exciting, how just setting the time aside to invest in yourself, your thoughts, feelings, and goals, can be so powerful. I specialize in certain treatments that are great for depression, anxiety, and values based life-planning; but at the centre of counselling for me is the therapeutic relationship. I've seen many people who have come in to work on one thing, and through guided discussions, have made some amazing realizations, set some exciting goals, and went on to live more fulfilling lives.

I use a two pronged approach in assisting clients . The first is called CBT Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This is highly used in counselling. It increase a clients awareness and enhances their education and skills. The second component, and I believe the most important, is the Reduction of Emotional Charge connected with the issue. Some times CBT is sufficient to bring about permanent change. But often people relapse because the emotional stimulation/reaction had not been reduced & they default to their old coping mechanisms.

Counselling is my life's work. I am in love with learning and do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to therapy. My first priority is to establish a good relationship with my client(s), to listen and create a safe space for them. I use my instincts, my years of experience and wisdom to customize treatment for each of my clients. I respect the wisdom of each person and believe that counselling can be a collaborative process between therapist and client. I am there to support, encourage, listen with compassion and to guide clients to find their own direction and empowerment. I also teach specific skills for communication, managing depression and anxiety and trauma symptoms.

Psychotherapy may be the most valuable gift we give to ourselves. This unique opportunity to have our experiences heard, acknowledged, respected and understood, is sadly far too rare in many common relationship dynamics. Having a space to "be" and unwind, in which the "other" is truly present with us as we express and explore our experience, can be wonderfully healing and clarifying - even energising. Though it is true that we all deserve this kind of care, sometimes it can feel like we don't. That can be where some of the real work is! My invitation would be to simply bring yourself just as you are....

The purpose of psychotherapy is to gain insight, and typically, insight into the patterns we've developed in any area of our lives. Usually, clients are seeking clarity about the negative (and repeating) patterns in their relationships. So what I do with clients who're seeking psychotherapy is to talk to them at length about their area of concern so we can gain an understanding of where the pattern began and why. Yes, there's always a 'why', and that's good news. Insight allows us to see what perhaps we haven't seen previously, and, as such, it automatically puts us in a place of choice. We can continue the pattern (consciously), or we can put an end to it. Let me help you do exactly that...
