Counselling for Healing and Life Skills
What if you could live free from an eating disorder or inner-critic?
Are you ready to manage your stress?
What if you could reconnect with yourself or love yourself?
It can feel intimidating to seek the help of a counsellor, but when you come you will find a relaxed atmosphere, a place to freely talk, new tools, and healing. I will partner with you to establish a safe place for you to talk. I can then assist you to better understand what is going on and you can begin to take some recovery steps. Continuing, we will look deeper into the problem to see how it affects your thoughts, emotions and behaviours, and work to bring about a positive change. Through our work together, you should be able to sort out what is happening, understand how it relates to your past experience, learn new skills, and heal.
I have helped many people achieve this for over 20 years of counselling in a private practice setting. Today can be a new beginning for you.
My Approach to Counselling
I consider it an honor to hear your story and to work with you in the healing process. You are a unique individual and I will develop a counselling plan that will fit your needs and circumstances and together we will walk you through the difficulty into the place that is right for you. It will be like having a guide to help you clarify what you are going through and assist you in deciding which way to go. I believe your life is valuable, has great worth and that you are here for a reason.
Counselling Areas Include:
Body Image & Eating Disorders
High Sensitive Person
Additional Counselling Theories:
Your thoughts, mind, body, relationship, circumstances and your spiritual life are all important things when recovering your health and life through counselling, so the therapies I use support this belief. All these areas are connected and changing one part can positively impact the other areas. Not everyone has a spiritual life and that is ok, the recovery plan will be designed to fit your life.
Self-Compassion - creating a healthy and connected relationship with yourself which fosters healing, greater security, improved choices and better relationships.
Inner Child Work - wounding often begins during our developmental years. Inner Child Work heals the original wound, which shifts the issue we are working on
Positive Psychology - focuses to what is right and on what resources and skills individuals do have.
One of the greatest privileges I've found in being a therapist is when women tell me their story, I get to see who they really are, and I marvel every time at how they are uniquely made, and I begin to wonder what could happen if they let other's see this, and even more, what will happen when they see it?
Complimentary 15 minute consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
