***Currently offering Phone and Online Video sessions. If you are a Front Line Worker go to https://covid19therapists.com/ for Free Therapy over the Phone.*** When we feel overwhelmed, resentful, anxious, or unhappy, our emotions are telling us that something isn't right. Usually that is because we have started making decisions that are intended to protect us from feeling pain that we have felt before, pain that was too much too bare. When we discover what these patterns in our behaviour or relationships are, and what the pain or fear is that is underneath them, it can open up space for joy, creativity, and peace.

We all may experience difficulties and stresses in life that can negatively affect how we feel about ourselves and our ability to live or lives. When problems take hold, we can feel stuck. It can be helpful to have a place to explore what is causing difficulty and find solutions to move out of the problem. I work with people who want to take their lives back from the effects of the problems they are stuggling with. Some examples of the problems I have helped clients with are depression, anger, grief, impacts of trauma, relationship difficulties, work/school related stress and effects of injustice.

Intense emotions can pull you into a downward spiral of feeling overwhelmed and lost. It is difficult to face life when you are walking around with a heavy chest or feeling anxious.

It can feel uncomfortable to turn to friends and family, fearing how they may react. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space, where you can feel heard as you work through difficult emotions.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Counsellors
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a Whitby adolescent counsellor these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent counsellors in Whitby, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent therapists. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

Whitby teen counsellors also provide help for troubled teens in Whitby or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, Whitby counsellors can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And counsellors in Whitby can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.
