How do you believe counselling can help?
Whether we believe we have an “issue” or not, counselling can be a helpful tool for anyone as we all face something challenging at one time or another, or simply have the desire to grow as a person. We can all seek opportunities to discover and understand more about ourselves – counselling provides that. But in addition, counselling provides a safe place for those of us that feel broken and lost within our own world. It offers trust, understanding, empathy, and endless tools to set goals and grow as individuals or within our various relationships.
Your approach to counselling:
I seek to work together with clients in order to mutually agree upon healthy goals and discover a deeper understanding of one’s self. My approach pulls from a variety of theories as I love to discover the individual as a whole – I aim to bring in a client-centered approach to provide empathy and understanding, all the while offering psychoeducation for client’s to further understand how their thoughts and emotions all impact their patterns and behaviours. This then leads to a beautiful process of achieving each client’s goals. I want every client to feel heard as we build a healthy therapeutic relationship so that once they leave the counselling room, they know how to confidently live their life.
