Individual, Couple, Family and Youth, Divorce and Separation
Relationships are essential to daily life. Whether with a spouse, child, parent, ex-partner or even a work colleague, they can be complicated and, at times, challenging. They take time, thought and effort to develop, nurture and sustain. My hope is to support you by offering different treatment modalities and plans specific to your current needs to strengthen the relationships that matter to you most.
I utilize many therapy tools that concentrate on helping people move towards the future that they want and to learn what can be done differently by using their existing skills, strategies and ideas. This is done in a safe and non judgmental environment to feel understood and heard.
SOLUTION FOCUSED APPROACH
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple
Relationships are not optional, they are at the center of life. Learning to develop and sustain positive, safe, relationships is critical to our health, growth and fulfillment. Married or dating: Couples Therapy can empower you to communicate more effectively, work through disagreements, and help you re-kindle the love that brought you together.
People enter counselling for many reasons, from anxiety, stress, or depression to trauma and bereavement. Still others are curious to discover more about themselves and keen to enrich their relationships and inner lives. Whatever your circumstances, counselling can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and transformational change.
You will engage in a supportive, collaborative process that will allow you to explore your experiences, behaviors, and beliefs. With the benefit of fresh insight, you will identify blind spots and patterns which are holding you back from health and happiness, and gain the strength and strategies needed to overcome them.
As you grow in wisdom and resilience and learn to discard the unhelpful responses you may have developed, you can move forward equipped with new and more successful tools for attaining lasting well-being.
Many people find that it provides relief from distress in a relatively short period of time; however, it is a dynamic process of personal growth and development and its duration, just as much as its content, will be different for every client.
Parenting Family and Youth Session
Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
