My name is Anthony Santen.
I provide marriage counselling, individual counselling and life coaching with a strong Integrative Psychodynamic Humanistic Existential Client Centered focus.
What does this mean for you?
My approach is focused on fostering individuality, spiritual growth, rekindling passion for life by finding and celebrating each person's unique differences while working towards integrating thought, mood and behavioural issues that cause challenges or suffering in my clients. With this direct yet gentle approach to facilitating change and mental wellbeing, I facilitate a renewed understanding of deeply entrenched patterns and beliefs.
Using an integrated variety of modalities including when appropriate: didactic, dialectic, narrative, CBT, NLP, guided imagery, and Ericksonian techniques, clients see me for problems related to depression, anxiety, stress, sleep, fears, intimacy and relationship related issues. Overcoming the root causes that may be holding back your progress, move beyond coping and managing into embodiment of your new and more integrated Self without the fear of having to change who you are as an essential person, as you embark on your journey to wellness and fulfillment.
Over the last 20+ years, I have worked with a variety of clients and studied philosophy and psychology based on many theories and traditions, from results oriented approaches (such as CBT) via psychology-based approaches (such as Freud, Jung, Adler, Rogers) to more spiritually based approaches (such as Christianity, Buddhism and Taoism). I have spent much time weeding out the belief-oriented portions of these philosophies to create a results-oriented, logic-based approach that is easily integrated into the philosophy of our current times. (i.e. by people like you and me who were born in modern times and grew up with hybrid cars, iPhones, Swiffer commercials on HD-TVs and clever advertising that tells us to buy more while eating organic and recycling.)
Over time I created a modern-integrative approach to Interpersonal Counselling I called the Path Within® Program (buy the book: The Path Within). The Path Within® Program is a new way to work through a variety of life's challenges using a concise and logical approach, consistent with modern ideology, without 'peeling the onion' in endless therapy sessions.
