Does your mind race, are you up in your head a lot, or do you lack motivation and struggle to realize your goals? Have you found success in your career or in the family but find life unsatisfying. I have a good idea why and I have the experience and the training to help you to get at the root of the issue.
Hi. I am Christian. I have a Masters of Arts from the University of British Columbia. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Art Therapist. I am also a Clinical Coordinator supervising other counsellors.
To assist in your personal growth, I am trained in a wide variety of therapeutic approaches including: Mindfulness; EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing); AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and Art Therapy. I am also well versed in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Finally, in our sessions, I can use an EEG feedback headband to help you effectively to learn how to relax so that you can experience a greater sense of calm and focused attention. I have extensive experience working with all populations including adults, parents, youth and children.
Using one or a combinations of therapies, I can help you to get back to a place of contentment and greater connectedness to yourself and others. My goal is to help you become more self-reliant and to live your life more authentically.
AEDP is a cutting edge therapy that is growing rapidly around the world because of its effectiveness in healing; it is a gentle and precise therapy that achieves permanent results. Mindfulness is an important therapeutic intervention because it helps us to live in the present when so much of our suffering is about anticipating the future or regretting the past. EEG Feedback assists in guiding you to find a place of calm which is so essential to finding your direction in life. EMDR is an effective intervention to deal with PTSD, trauma, phobias, or any other difficult to access places of past. And, with respect to art therapy, healing and insight is always linked to creativity.
Who am I? I have 2 children and I have been in a loving relationship for over 20 years. I have an extensive meditation practice and have found meditation very beneficial for my own well being. I volunteer as a meditation instructor. I love excercise (although, with 2 young children, struggle to find the time). I cycle-commute. I try to fix my bike. And I am passionate about gardening and astronomy. I also continually build up my therapeutic skill set by receiving ongoing supervision.
Please contact me if you want to set up a free ½ hour information to see if we can work well together.
