Before becoming a psychotherapist, I was a practicing physician for 15 years. My Clinical counselling services include Individual, Couples , Family, Addictions, and Immigration issues. I have counselled and motivated individuals to recognize and understand personal needs, problems, alternatives and goals, using a combination of practical problem solving skills and an empathic approach to counselling, successfully helping overcome severe depressions or anxieties. Your therapy sessions with me will be a journey to discover who you are, what you want and what has gotten in the way of achieving your goals. We will work towards improving your daily life. https://gabrielpatrichcounselling.com/

People are not their diagnoses even though these labels can sometimes be informative. I prefer to get to know you. Specifically, what do you want out of therapy? What is currently working for you, not working? What brings you in to see me in this moment? I believe that therapy is not only about reducing our suffering, but also finding meaning and fulfillment in our lives. It is about getting to know ourselves, parts that we love, parts that we are afraid of, parts that we don't yet understand. People are also not things that need to be "fixed", instead, this is a place for healing, self-compassion, and growth.

Do you feel distressed but don't understand why? Have you tried different methods and it only helped a little but never get ahead? Have you ever wondered what the core issue is? Working with me might find you those answers. A lot of people ask who gets counselling, I believe that anyone who experiences stress could get a therapist; however, many have amazing family and friends that allow them to bounce ideas, inspire motivation, and provides insight so counselling really isn't needed. Most people wait till they are in crisis to get help which would mean a rough journey to baseline. Let's be preventative rather than reactionary.

Do you feel stressed or anxious in your life or overwhelmed in your daily struggles; or feel stuck and depressed? It's known connecting well with a therapist is an important factor for success, so I spend more than one hour at first sessions, at reduced rate, or you can come for 15 minutes without charge. This creates good initial rapport and a better understanding of your problems. I'm well trained & experienced to help you deal with your problem. I work with individuals using cognitive therapy mixed with common sense from my life experience as a wife and mother.

We all face challenges in life. Some we can work through on our own or with help from friends or family. Others require more support. Taking that first step to seek counselling can be difficult. I have been told that I am a warm, non-judgmental and down-to-earth person. You may be suffering from anxiety that is keeping you awake at night or feelings of depression that can make it hard to get up. Events from the past may be holding you back. You may be grieving a loss or at a crossroads in life that requires a difficult decision. I believe each person has many strengths and is capable of making changes to live a fulfilled life.

I deeply believe in championing, supporting and equipping others with the skills necessary to reach their greatest potential. As a former elementary school teacher, the educational system has afforded me a unique lens to see a greater need for support of both our children and parenting community. My passion and primary focus involves working in tandem with you, parents or caregivers, and drawing upon your unique position as those who know your child best. Your innate knowledge and expertise will serve as the foundation for your child to flourish.

As both a therapist and a researcher, I aim to address the dynamic and lived experiences of those who may be struggling with a history of trauma, sexual distress or intimacy-related concerns. I often work with individuals who present well on the surface, seem completely put together when they want to be, and whose problems are not always apparent to others. While things might appear to be going well on the outside, privately they are hurting. Sometimes the source of distress is clearly known, other times it has yet to be discovered.

I strive to help individuals and couples access their inner strengths and resources to better cope with their challenges.
When things aren’t feeling all that great it’s palpable. Life may seem overwhelming or dull. It can feel difficult, uncomfortable, and even the smallest things can bring about tremendous distress. Like many of my clients, you may be feeling stuck and unfulfilled. Your life and close relationships may feel challenging despite your best efforts. You struggle with how things are and long for what they could be.

Moments of struggle are inevitable. However, when we are at a crossroads, we can begin seeing ourselves more clearly. My practice, Liminal Space Counselling, is founded on the idea that the space between two points in our lives is a chance to reflect and begin again.

I believe the core of human development is physiological, psychological and spiritual. Supportive therapy can help awaken an individual's dormant spirit and guide them through profound personal transformations. I work with adults, couples , and groups. I apply client-centered Lifespan Integration (LI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In addition, I add a Cross-Cultural approach when working with my immigrant clients (Iranians & other immigrant communities). LI: The human mind develops interactively in response to the early childhood environment. The developing neural system "hardwire" interprets events and stays with individuals throughout their lifetime.

I have practiced individual, couples , and group therapies in hospitals, universities, and private practice for over a decade.
While stress, anxiety, sadness, health problems, and relationship conflicts are a common part of life, if they're interfering with work, school, family, relationships, or other areas of your life that are important to you, you may benefit from therapy. My clients experience a range of difficulties from anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, depression, substance or impulse control issues, chronic pain or health problems, and high-conflict relationships. The thing they all have in common is they feel like their emotions, behaviours, or past experiences have prevented them from living the fullest, most meaningful life possible.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Arbutus Ridge, Vancouver?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Arbutus Ridge, Vancouver specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
