INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

PROCESS

Individual Counselling is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, beliefs, values and behaviors.  We may work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.


People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, dealing with depression or anxiety,  to adjusting to difficult life transitions such as separation and divorce.​

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY

Many therapeutic approaches are found to be helpful in supporting and guiding individuals and families through life's challenges.   In addition to other interventions and techniques, I have found that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an extremely useful approach when working with a wide variety of concerns, including anxiety and depression.

A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy
