Loss of Self
I help clients get their self power back, restores their self-confidence allowing them to have a better life. My clients learn their negative beliefs, and their self-beating criticisms, and their cycle of behavioural patterns that are permitting them from obtaining the life they had envisioned. I together with my client create a treatment plan accordingly to the counselling needs of each client. I work together with my clients to ensure they reach their counselling goals.
I help my clients find their safe place, understand their anxiety and help them learn how to cope with their symptoms. Client once asked me how is it possible for her to live so long without this mental illness, and then have it suddenly appear out of nowhere, and take over her life, where I can not work, and engage in other routinely activities. Anxiety can be brought on by environmental stresses including other factors such as changes in the brain structures. I develop strategies to address the client's anxiety induced thoughts and behaviours as well as go over dietary and lifestyles changes to help with the anxiety.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) techniques to explore the clients feelings of severe despair. In therapy the client learns tools to overcome the barriers that have impacted their overall self-being. I use evidence based strategies to help the client overcome their depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress(PTSD). We all differ how we experience stresses, traumas and childhood events, I provide my clients safe and secure environment while encouraging the clients to shift negative attitudes and beliefs to accepting positive coping skills to build a better future.
Anger Management Therapy
I also provide anger management therapy to men. I work one-on-one with my client, to explore the triggers to resolve and control their anger. I provide worksheets that we work together on weekly basis, that create self-awareness for the client, that allow the client to look at their behaviour objectively and begin to heal.

Then I use Solution-Focused Therapy and Person Centered Therapy(PCT), to assist client finding solution to their issues . For some client I use EMDR, Exposure therapy and Empty Chair Techniques to help the clients resolve their trauma. I work together with my clients move pass the negativity that is slowing them down and move forward with their inner healing.
