INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING

I offer individual counselling with an approach that is compassionate, emotionally focused, person-centered, solution-focused and evidence-based to support your unique needs.  Counselling can be short term and longer term, depending on your needs and goals.

 

My counselling approach encompasses the following core beliefs:

  • I firmly believe that people are doing the best they can with the resources they have. As each of us adds more resources to our "tool box", we add more capacity to do well for ourselves, within our relationships and for our communities. Every person is of value with the ability to achieve satisfying and fulfilling lives.

  • Clients are the experts in their own life. The role of a therapist is to provide compassion, understanding, acceptance, and guidance for individuals seeking help to find, or re-learn, the personal wisdom we all possess. Together, we will collaborate and develop strategies, plans, and work towards solutions and healing for you in your unique situation. The process of counseling is unique for every individual and is a collaborative process between the client and the clinician.

  • There is no "one size fits all" approach to therapy, as each person is unique and will benefit from a counselling style that is tailored to meet people where they are at. I incorporate a number of therapeutic modalities into my work with individuals to address each individual's personal situation and to support them on their journey towards wholeness, healing, living life authentically and with courage.
