   AUTHENTIC PSYCHOLOGY -Counselling & Psychological Services
   My name is Joshua Adams and I am a Registered Psychologist with experience in psychotherapy, clinical psychological assessment, psychological consultation and advocacy, facilitating groups, teaching and curriculum development, supervision, and public speaking.   have been working with vulnerable people with mental illnesses for over 13 years. While employed with the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre (the largest shelter and homeless services provider in Canada), I became their first ever Registered Psychologist.
   I am passionate about helping people find their authentic selves and live out their
intentional and chosen purpose. I love striving to look past peoples’ difficulties and redirecting their attentions to their passions, values, dreams, and authentic selves.

   look forward to meeting you, hearing about your dreams and passions, and creatively helping you overcome any obstacles keeping you from your authentic self.
 COST

 MY APPROACH
The therapeutic approach I use depends on the unique needs, problems, and personalities of each individual client. Here are some of my main therapeutic approaches:
   ·Person-Centered Therapy: Person-Centered Therapy is not so much a series of activities and interventions as it is a way of being with people and a way of perceiving their struggles and their strengths. As a central perspective, Person-Centered therapists view all people as having the potential to make positive changes and to live out a life of authenticity and genuine meaning. Person-centered therapists act as catalysts for change by being a safe, accepting, and empathic listener; they can help you identify barriers and effectively make progress in your life while feeling understood.
   ·Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an active and action-oriented approach which helps clients learn skills to manage and change problematic thinking (cognition), behavior, and—as a result—emotions. CBT therapists do this through a variety of techniques and strategies.  
   ·Existential Therapy: Existential Therapy is more of a philosophical approach to doing therapy than it is a set of techniques. It assumes that people are free and therefore responsible for their choices. Its focus is on pursuing authentically chosen values to live out a life of purpose.  
   ·Motivational Interviewing: Motivational Interviewing is about having effective conversations. These conversations are collaborative, focusing on and strengthening the client’s own motivation and commitment for change. (Miller & Rollnick, Motivational Interviewing, 3rd Edition).
   ·Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy: Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a brief form of therapy which is collaborative and focuses on solutions rather than problems.
