I offer professional counselling services to individuals over the age of 18 years.  Therapy is designed to enhance well-being through established and innovative therapeutic techniques.  Often, therapy can assist with building dynamic problem solving skills, developing effective and adaptive coping, fostering improved communication, and processing personal environments and interpersonal relations.

The modalities of therapy I use include:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural therapy focuses on the reciprocal relationship between and individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.  CBT encourages individuals to reflect on how their perceptions directly influence their behaviours.  In collaboration with the therapist, this therapy enables the client to build insight into their thought process and its role in their functioning.

Motivational Interviewing
Motivational Interviewing focuses on the individual’s desire to elicit change.  The role of the therapist is to assist the client with resolving their ambivalence towards conflicting courses of action.  The therapist is respectful towards the client’s freedom of choice and is prepared to evaluate the options in a non-judgemental manner and in collaboration with the client.

Solution-Focused therapy is goal oriented.  This therapy encourages the client to imagine the future the way they want it to be.  They are than encouraged with the support of the therapist to collaborate on a series of steps to achieve their identified goals.  Often, the client’s own strengths form the foundation of the approach.
