What Happens in Counselling?

Sometimes the coping strategies we have developed to manage life accidentally become rigid patterns that get in the way of healthy relationships, personal growth, emotional regulation, and response flexibility. I will identify the patterns that are playing a role in the problems you are currently struggling with, and I will suggest a therapeutic plan to help you achieve your goals. We will work together to resolve the issues that are causing you distress. Then instead of just talking about change, you can try out new behaviours and beliefs immediately in the session – effectively rewiring your brain!

Therapy modalities

I match my interventions to each client and family, and draw from the following therapeutic modalities:

Creative Arts Therapy

The practice of using drama, visual arts, imagery, storytelling, music, and poetry to promote growth and healing. Through creative expression and the imagination, a person can examine their emotions and develop creative solutions to problems.
