Are you adjusting to the diagnosis of a chronic health condition, and it seems like you're now different to your peers? Are you feeling anxious about changes in your life to do with aspects of your career, the progress of your studies, or perhaps ongoing tension in professional or personal relationships? Do you doubt your worth, and find you keep comparing yourself with others and come up short?

SJ's approach is influenced by psychodynamic psychotherapy. From this framework, treatment is centred on illuminating the unconscious narratives that we all carry within ourselves, impressed upon us by our early experiences. We may find ourselves feeling stuck, indifferent, or overwhelmed, despite immense efforts to change, unaware of the repeating patterns within ourselves, and in our interactions with others. Through the exploration of the past and paying close attention to what arises in the present moment-to-moment interactions, we can come to embrace the entirety of our experience and transformation begins anew.

Hi, I'm Gretta. I have over 20+ years of experience providing counselling to adults. I have a particular interest in supporting adults who have experienced relational trauma. Do you experience, for example, confusion; trust issues; excessive thinking, stress or worry; communication issues; tiredness; sleep issues; feeling withdrawn and/or on alert? Would you prefer to slow down, explore your feelings, thoughts and experiences, and develop skills to more effectively manage them? Working with a professionally trained counsellor allows you to work towards the changes you are seeking within a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
