We offer holistically centered counselling to a diverse clientele.
Counselling, or talk therapy, is a proven method of improving mental health and wellness. It is a collaborative, active process that creates lasting change in your life. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space for you to talk about anything you want, without fear of judgement.
Our practitioners integrate a variety of approaches to best help you, including client centred, feminist, anti-oppression, DBT, CBTand EMDR. We can offer short-term solution focused therapy or longer term depth therapy.
You may benefit from counselling if you're looking to enhance your life in any of these ways:
healing from past hurt, problems or trauma that are getting in the way of current happiness
developing tools for managing anxiety, depression or stress
learning better communication skills and finding ways to productively deal with conflict
getting unstuck from negative patterns that are holding you back
geting out of crisis and moving to a place of stability and support
building self esteem and thriving in life
support and guidance navigating situational or systemic barriers that are outside of your control.
Counselling is primarily talk therapy, but can also involve doing expressive work, such as drawing, journalling, or colouring. We are also equipped with sandtray therapy for people of all ages.
Counselling isn't just for for individuals. Marriage and family counselling, or couples counselling, can help build stronger and healthier connections. Relationship counselling is possible for any type of relationship, including partners, siblings, parents and adult children, or friends.
