Counselling can help you to discover, investigate and work through the manner in which you thoughts, feelings and behaviors may be creating feelings of stress, discomfort or challenge. These sensations can be very challenging and disorienting. You may be feeling confused, overloaded, overwhelmed and distressed; personally or professionally. I will support you to respectfully explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and patterns to enhance your coping strategies.
Counselling will assist you to enhance your ability to manage your feelings and behaviors, and to develop the insight to make positive choices. In a compassionate, safe and supportive environment, I work with you to develop realistic and achievable goals while providing reflective insights and tools to cope with stressful experiences and life transitions. Goals in counselling include moving forward with a renewed sense of well-being and effectiveness, improved communication strategies and increased skills in emotion regulation.
Family therapy helps couples and families to develop and strengthen skills towards meeting your goals. This approach views the family as a unit where individual strengths and challenges are recognized and each member’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours are explored with respect to their impact on the family as a whole.
The goal of family therapy is to develop and strengthen resources and help family members work together as they implement solutions to their challenges. This is achieved through improving communication and problem-solving abilities. Each member of the family will learn how to best support themselves and each other while developing patterns of relating that foster understanding and unity.
