For clients who have experienced trauma, I primarily use EMDR therapy and integrate other modalities such as CBT , narrative therapy, mindfulness and others as needed.
The direction of my practice is changing as I begin to focus primarily on supporting trauma survivors. Coming from a perspective of lived experience, and having added trauma training to my formal education and practice, I believe that we need to approach trauma differently. With trauma work, we slow it right down by first starting to get to know each other. I take the time to understand where you are at in your journey, and where you've come from (keeping in mind that you can share as much or as little as you like). In time we begin look that issues that are still creating distress, what your current needs are & your healing goals.

I also provide specific techniques (such as EMDR or CBT ) to help you get to your goals.
Sometimes in life we are at a place where we are looking to understand more of ourselves and what is going on in our lives - from the relationships we find ourselves in, to the cycles that we might get stuck in. From anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, life stress, big transitions; my job is to offer a space for you to feel safe and heard so the unpacking and understanding can begin. It is only when we can uncover and understand the root of the problem that profound coping and healing can really begin. If you are looking to understand yourself on a deeper level and take control of the things that are hurting you, I can help.

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
