I specialize in men's healing and growth. My passion is to support you as you reclaim the vitality and joy you once felt. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Masters degree in Counselling.
You can benefit greatly from this work if:
- you are willing to do the necessary work to be ready for a truly fulfilling romantic partnership
- you desire connecting with a much deeper life, a sense of purpose, direction, and vitality
- you have been traumatized whether through sexual, emotional, or physical abuse
- you struggle with lack of motivation, depression, and/or stress, anxiety, and worries
- you battle with low self-esteem and lack of confidence
As children, we are often full of life. As we grow and adapt to the conditions and "shoulds" of society, we tend to lose some of our joy and natural innocence. The therapy I offer allows you to connect with what seems to have been lost: The simple joy of being alive! I also help grow your capacity for mature boundary setting as well as self-compassion.
Although I work with every client who is interested, I specialize in men's healing and growth. I believe today's world almost completely ignores the pain and needs of men. As a result, many men suffer in isolation. I witnessed this very clearly when I worked with men who had been sexually abused. While women often have other women to talk to about both their joys and their struggles, many men have only their mothers or their partners for support.
In today's fast changing world, gender roles are being questioned and perhaps redefined. Some say it is exciting times for relationships, but it can also be extremely frustrating and challenging to make sense of what is being asked of men. What do we need as men? What do we want? How can we show up in our full power and true voice?
The way I work allows you to find balance between thinking and feeling and connects you with your power as well as your heart. It is possible to be ourselves without denying how we actually feel. Are you ready for a much deeper, more fulfilling life?
I am experienced working in the areas of:
- Sexual/ Emotional Abuse
- Stress and Anger Management
- Shadow Work
- Men's Work
- Addictions (to substances, sex, porn)
It is possible to heal and grow. No matter how big or small your concerns are, everything can be worked with.
I offer a respectful, compassionate, and non-judgemental space for you to find and embody your full voice and true potential. The work we do together also prepares you for awakened monogamy: A relationship in which partners truly support and cherish each other.
A TYPICAL SESSION WITH ME
During a typical session, I listen to your present day concerns and smoothly guide you into your life's earlier dynamics where the specific challenge might have originated. As you make connections between your past and your present moment concerns, the hero's journey of healing and growth had already begun! You are well on your way to reclaiming your joy, power, and heart.
WHY PICK CENK AMONG HUNDREDS OF THERAPISTS?
I offer mindfulness-based, emotion-centred, somatic therapy to serve your deepest healing and growth. This is not mere talk therapy which can take years and years of your time because it is so inefficient. The inner work I offer calms the mind and softens the body, leaving you naturally at ease.
I've been told I am very easy to talk to and I am comfortable working with intense emotion and trauma. I have been doing my own growth work and that gives me a unique ability to serve my clients' deepest needs.
I look forward to meeting you!
