Derek Martin, PhD

Canadian Certified Counsellor

In V8W 2J9 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Many of us come to counselling feeling alone, frightened, and even ashamed. This is why it is so important to find a counselor who we can trust in our most fragile moments. It is also helpful to find a counsellor who can not only relate to our problems, but can also see our own unique potential for development and growth. I work to help clients better understand and relate to their problems, and discover new ways to move forward. Through facing into our own problems like this, healing is not only possible, but it is where life naturally begins to flow.

What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? These are questions that we may start with in a psychotherapy session together. Our approach to psychotherapy is person centered: we determine together which approach or approaches may be best, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We also bring in some expressive arts activities to help explicate/integrate these processes.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9G 1A8 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Anybody can do counselling, but it takes skill to be a therapist. Clients who come to me find they do most of the talking. My role is to listen, try to understand what you are thinking and feeling, and reflect that understanding back to you. I want you to feel deeply heard. I want you to feel someone cares. I do not give you solutions. Rather, I help you find them within yourself.

Tricia Toth, BSW, MSW, RSW, RCC

Professional Masters Level Registed Social Worker and Registered Clinical Counselor

In V9G 1A1 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Psychotherapy is often used to treat a wide range of challenges, some of which include: poor self confidence, depression, anxiety, career problems, impaired relationships, addictions, etc. As your therapist I will assist you in identifying the key areas you would like to work on. Sometimes people feel so overwhelmed they do not know where to start. Together, we can determine which issues are of top priority. I will assist you in looking at the 'big picture', while initially setting small measurable goals. I will provide you with the support you need to tackle each obstacle head on. Small successes lead to great accomplishments.

John Parker, MA RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9L 4L9 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

I believe the most essential goal in a therapeutic relationship is for you the client to feel truly understood. It is with earned trust that I would explore with you the challenges you may be struggling with at this time. I believe psychotherapy is a process of identifying and modifying underlying convictions that may be tripping you up, causing difficulties within yourself or in relationships with others. Central to successful therapy is identifying your strengths and building on these, in order to bring about the desired changes you set out for yourself.

Registered Clinical Counselor

In V8N 1G2 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Psychotherapy is an intensely personal process to help you access deeper layers of yourself with a purpose of healing. Therapist is a compassionate guide and witness, who is there to care for the soul. I am skilled in various modalities of psychotherapy, but my main guiding principle is compassionate and loving presence, spontaneous and creative in the moment. My approach is also holistic in that it includes working with emotional, cognitive, spiritual and somatic levels of your experience in the context of your life. Common rewards of successful psychotherapy are increased self knowledge, freedom from painful habitual patterns, increased ability to be fully present in your world.

Registered Clinical Counsellor & Registered Clinical Social Worker

In V8V 4N5 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Fundamental to the work is a good therapeutic relationship. That is, we have the collaboration and trust to combine your knowledge of yourself and your situation and my skills and knowledge of the clinical issues to make change happen. With established trust and rapport between us, we can develop a structureless structure for our treatment plan. That is, one flexible enough to give space to deal with thoughts and feelings spontaneously each week, and structured enough to accomplish your goals.

Hannah Caradonna, MSW, RCSW, RCC

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8V 4A1 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Psychotherapy involves the therapist, the client, a psychological problem or symptom such as depression and "the work" - meaning the conversation that happens between them. So, if you are considering psychotherapy with myself, you can expect me to act as a compassionate listener, a trained observer, a coach and a diagnostician. And, also important to psychotherapy is the inclusion of the examination of your experience of the relationship between us - therapist and client. Examination is extremely useful in helping you understand and improve unhealthy patterns and interactions with others outside of therapy.

Erin Laird, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8R 2B6 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Who are you? Why did you do that? What affect did that have on you? How would you like to do that differently? Together we'll explore your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, and gain some insight in order to increase your sense of well-being, improve your relationships, and achieve higher levels of functioning. We will pay close attention to the information your body gives us, and work at regulating the intense emotion through somatic awareness, inquiry, interventions, and reflections.

Cally Farr, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V8V 3K8 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

We are often influenced unconsciously by experiences from our childhood, and develop patterns of beliefs and behaviour that no longer serve us well in our present lives. In a safe environment, psychotherapy can gently explore the patterns and bring new insight and wisdom, which can lead to new behaviour, perspectives and choices. Clients can connect with inner wells of strength and creativity which can bring a new sense of peace and purpose.

Janice Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V9C 1E7 - Nearby to Shawnigan Lake.

Psychotherapy is a counseling process which helps you understand why the things that are troubling you have happened. I will ask you to tell me your story in detail and ask lots of questions to help you gain clarity and insight. This is not a quick counseling method but aims to be a thorough one. The goal is to support you in making the changes you need to make to improve your situation. We will identify your competencies and build on them with new skills. Psychotherapy can be an exciting experience for you as you learn to live your life more as you would like to see it. You may experience some discomfort as you confront issues you have avoided but you will see positive growth in yourself.
