If you are reading this, it's quite possible you're feeling unsure or overwhelmed by all the different treatment methods listed for psychotherapy. Which one is right for you? Some psychotherapists specialize in certain types of treatment methods, like CBT or DBT. Others use different approaches. Many use a combination of methods that depend on the situation and unique needs of the client. Regardless of method, the most important aspect is the relationship you have with your therapist. Do you feel comfortable working with this person? Are you willing to work with this person? Is this person helping you? If you feel a connection, and it's working, then your on the right path!

Looking for a longer term approach to working through difficulties? As with counselling, psychotherapy involves a therapist and client working together to develop effective coping mechanisms and improve functionality; unlike counselling, psychotherapists dig deeper, exploring patterns of behaviour that have lead to where a person finds oneself in life.

Problems that arise at work, in our friendships and intimate relationships, can often cloud our judgment with anxiety, stress, anger, depression or passive aggressive behaviour because we lack proper coping strategies for difficult situations. Because we don’t understand how to best deal with difficult situations it is not unusual for us to feel overwhelmed, confused, fearful and unable to move forward in our lives. Psychotherapy can awaken us to discover the real reason we choose our behaviours. Once we learn how we tend to protect ourselves from the things we fear most e.g. and overcome the emotional pain derived from unmet expectations, we learn that we can choose.

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's a valuable process of allowing our feelings to work for us to create satisfying joyful lives.

It has always been my belief that no particular therapy is equally applicable to every client, and so use a variety of methods based on the client's needs. It's my belief that one of the fundamental pieces missing from most approaches to human psychology is that the spiritual aspect is ignored, and so work with clients also combines a spiritual perspective where appropriate and desired. I work with clients on various issues, but have found that mindfulness exercises have a tremendous and positive impact and have used this approach with clients for close to 20 years. I look forward to working with you...

Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that helps you examine your qualities and characteristics aiming to assist you with an enhanced awareness of yourself and your relationships with others in order to foster healthy growth and development. Getting to know one another in the counselling context involves entering into a mutually agreed upon course of counselling specifically designed to assist you in your journey toward recovery, healing and optimal health and functioning. It does take courage and it is important for you to feel comfortable and connect with your counsellor. I look forward to discussing this further with you. Contact me for further information.
