INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING SERVICES
Grounded in life experience, my client-centered approach to counselling is guided by the client’s current needs and goals. I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches such as narrative and solution-focused therapy, with a special interest in mindfulness-based approaches such as ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) to effectively support client change. By applying my special interest in spiritually-integrated psychotherapy, I assist individuals in “making meaning” of their lives and in navigating significant life transitions. I enjoy working with youth and offer group programs to promote the development of resiliency skills, including mindfulness. I have supported teen and adult clients through a variety of issues including: mild to moderate depression, anxiety, grief & loss, parenting, relationships, self-esteem & body image, stress management, chronic pain, transitions, as well as issues unique to aging women.
I provide individual counselling in a relaxed atmosphere for a variety of presenting issues including:
- depression, anxiety and emotional difficulties
- women’s issues, body-image and healthy weight management
- parenting support, youth/adolescents challenges
- stress management, caregiver burnout and health problems counselling
- relationship and communication issues
- grief and loss
- life and career transitions
- self-esteem and identity issues
Once an in person counselling relationship has been established and, where appropriate, supplementary telephone counselling sessions can be arranged to suit the particular needs of the client.
Sessions may be 30 minutes to one hour in length.
On-line counselling services will begin in 2017. Please contact me to experience a complementary session.
