How I Approach Counselling & Psychotherapy
I believe that each person is infinitely valuable and unique and has their own way of seeing the world and experiencing it. There is no “one size fits all”. While I work primarily from an attachment, systemic, and emotionally-focused framework, I incorporate a variety of perspectives to help clients focus on the emotional roots of an issue rather than just the symptoms.
My approach to counselling consists of:
- Helping clients understand and work through their emotional experience in a safe and supportive environment
- Empowering clients through a process of self-discovery and awareness, leading to new perspectives of self and other
- Building upon strengths and potential and working through any resistance to change
Whatever my client’s situation, I always look for hope and do not overlook the courage it takes to be willing to take steps towards growth and healing. I truly believe that given the right emotional support, every person is capable of and has the capacity to change. My hope is to help people better understand themselves and their experience, instil hope and confidence to cross life’s invariable disappointments and challenges, and help them discover possible ways of moving forward.
