PSYCHOTHERAPY
& COUNSELLING

What is Psychotherapy/Counselling?

Psychotherapy aka talk-therapy, is a collaborative process that helps you find the best version of yourself through processing difficult emotions, thoughts, and experiences. In psychotherapy, you will learn how to confront, understand, and cope with difficult emotions while strengthening the mind-body connection. The goal is to help you find the behaviours, choices, actions, and reactions that YOU want to exude and increase your quality of life. This may include enhancing the relationships you have with others and most importantly your relationship with yourself.

What to expect?

Therapy looks a little different for everyone. There is no one size fits all. Through the therapeutic relationship, we will work together towards your desired goals. You can expect to explore, discover, uncover, process, learn, and apply to your life what you learn from our work together. Whether you are looking for a non-judgemental and safe space to let it all out, or you are looking for someone to challenge you and provide you with the education and skills... we cater our approach to each individual that we work with.

 

We understand that taking this step can be overwhelming. We want to remind you that there's always hope! Similar to waves in the ocean, we can't choose the frequency or depth of what comes our way but CAN choose how we steer our ship. We are incredibly passionate about the work we do and are here to support you.
