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.

Individual Couple Family Counsellor, Sex Addiction Counsellor

161 Waterloo Ave, Guelph, Ontario N1H 3H9 | 519.824.2456

The key is to find the right therapist and psychotherapy ... "what works" for you. Research confirms that a positive alliance between the client and the counsellor is one of the best predictors of outcomes in therapy. I am trained and experienced with numerous models of change. Clients report, however, that they feel the most heard and understood when I help them open up their emotions. John Gottman states that Susan Johnson is "the best couple therapist in the world." I have been trained by Susan Johnson and I highly recommend her book to you, Hold Me Tight, and also my Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey.

Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

Elora, Ontario N0B 1S0 | 519-766-3978

My masters program was called Spiritual Care & Psychotherapy. I had 3 years previous to that in a counselling undergrad that focused heavily on building a spiritually integrated foundation for theoretical approaches with clients. During those formative years developing as a professional and discovering who I wanted to be as a counsellor, I realised that I was made to serve and model with high integrity, a compassion for my clients that would stand out in their lives; that I had the privilege to be a small seed along their journey to well being. I look forward to walking with you, building a wonderful relationship through the hard times and the celebration of successes. You are worth it!

Psychotherapy is a unique process that allows the client and therapist to develop a relationship that can help correct past trauma and neglect so that the client has all of their energy available for present moment awareness and action. This healing relationship can strengthen and improve a client's present relationships and all aspects of a client's life.

Registered Psychotherapist

737 Belmont Ave. West (Belmont Village--near the corner of Union Blvd. and Belmont Ave.), Waterloo, Ontario N2M 1P3 | 519-404-6632

I believe that the key to successful psychotherapy is the development of a positive therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. My approach to therapy is strengths-based and multi-faceted—drawing on techniques from Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I believe that there is ‘more going right with a person, than wrong’ and that the work we do together is to find and explore the strengths and supports that you already have, as you work on the issues that brought you to therapy.

People often come to therapy to get rid of painful and difficult feelings. Rather than getting rid of our feelings, therapy is a skilled process of helping us understand ourselves so we can use our feelings to navigate our lives. Even the very painful feelings hold vital information for us to become sure-footed in our life. Just like in martial arts, we use the momentum of the attacker and redirect it to ensure our safety ; in therapy we use the information from the painful feelings to clarify what we need to create more safety in our lives so we can thrive. It is a valuable process of allowing our feelings to work for us to create satisfying joyful lives.
