While there is no magic formula to counselling or a “one size fits all” approach to therapy, it is important that counselling is customized to you. Therapy is a collaborative process where you are the expert about your life and the goals you want to accomplish and I bring my knowledge, expertise and skill set to help you accomplish your objectives to bring about meaningful and lasting change in your life.
Let’s be honest, seeking professional help is not easy, and requires a certain amount of courage. The good news is that you are one step closer to getting the help that you are looking for.
Still not sure who to work with, or what kind of therapy is best for you?
Some people do extensive research that includes a thorough investigation and analysis, scouring the internet in the hopes of making sense of counsellor’s theoretical orientation, which can be confusing. In fact, it can be downright overwhelming. If it helps, here is a little more information about me and my approach.
My approach to therapy is a unique blend of solution-focused therapy (emphasis is on helping clients to create solutions, instead of figuring out how your problems showed up in your life), acceptance and commitment therapy (personal experiences create our own perceived reality, which means accepting what’s in your control and committing to taking action that improves your life), and narrative therapy (which examines how individual’s give meaning to their lives based on their unique experiences, and how to create new meaning that empowers you and that leads to new experiences). While this is not an exhaustive list of my approaches and techniques that I use when working with clients, it is my way of making sense of what brings you to therapy and how to address your concerns.
