Psychotherapy refers to a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges, and some psychiatric disorders. It aims to enable clients to understand their feelings, and what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This can equip them to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helps people to examine how they make sense of what is happening around them in the moment and how these perceptions affect the way they feel. Together we would work to identify any challenging or difficult thoughts, emotions and behaviours and use behavioural activation techniques to make meaningful changes to improve mood.
Mindfulness is the practice of enhancing awareness to the present moment. It allows us to recognize our present emotions and feelings both in our mind and body and work through any that are difficult, creating a more positive wellbeing.
The healing journey is a courageous one and I hope to be your compassionate support to wellness, discovering your best path forward. As a Person-Centered therapist, I believe in your resiliency to overcome the most difficult of circumstances, and like our childhood years, this resiliency is best fostered in the right conditions, offering a space of warmth, empathy, and complete acceptance. Working with a variety of evidence-based practices and tools to best support you by following your lead to ensure your hopes and goals from therapy are the focal point of sessions. Together, we will work through to heal the wounds of the past and with greater awareness to identify your needs at present to then discover your preferred future. With honesty and gentle questioning to allow for greater self-discovery and harmony to create meaning out of loss, and with warmth and acceptance to draw on your strengths, as I am extremely passionate about finding balance with greater self-compassion and self-acceptance on your unique well-being journey. I would love to hear from you to see how I can best support you on your wellness journey. Currently accepting new clients and welcoming free consultations at your convenience to see if I am the right fit for you.
