My name is Raman Gill and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor who has an established private practice in Surrey. My approach is influenced by Narrative ideas. This approach helps to separate individuals/couples/families from the influence of the problem(s) in order to help rediscover their strengths, knowledge, and aspirations. This allows space to create new possibilities. My approach is respectful, non-blaming, and honors the courage it takes to seek support.
There are many issues which can affect each and every one of us at any point in our lives. Parent/teen conflict, abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, family issues, and self-esteem are some of the concerns we may face. Dealing with these problems in the light of life's responsibilities can become that much more challenging. Problems have a way of making us forget about our strengths, survival skills, knowledge, and abilities. Problems tend to leave us with a very narrow description of who we are and what we are capable of.
My areas of focus are, but are not limited to:
- Parent/teen conflict
- Family/couples conflict
- Adolescent issues (including crime prevention)
These above issues are created and re-created in our lives in many different ways. My approach is different in that it does not blame individuals/couples/families for the challenges they are facing. Rather, I strive to work collaboratively with each individual/couple/family to learn about the problem(s) and the affects it has on their lives. The goal of therapy is to decrease the affect of the issue and also help each individual rediscover his/her strengths and abilities, while bridging relationships and creating new possibilities of lasting change. In utilizing this approach, I have found success in supporting individuals/couples/families to decrease the affect of the problem(s) and begin living their preferred lives.
