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/

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.

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.

If you're here, it's probably because you've identified something in your life you aren't satisfied with and you're ready to try something new. That urge to do something different will be the key to your success, if you only nurture it. I'd love to help you do that. I enjoy working with individuals from all ages, cultures, genders and sexuality, particularly with members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, and people struggling with chronic pain. Areas of concern I have a particular interest in are anxiety, self-esteem, identity, organizational coaching, parenting, meaning generation, and managing chronic pain.

I also have experience in working with anxiety, and self esteem .
I offer counselling to self-identifying women, men, and folks who are gender non-conforming. I seek to provide a space of authenticity, safety and groundedness where clients feel safe to explore their inner experiences. I believe each person has the capability to heal and warrants having someone with them on the journey through the exploration and discovery of their authentic self.

By discussing your concerns with you, I can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.

If we ignore them, they keep popping up and create more issues in our relationships, work life, school life, physical health and self esteem .
My approach is tailored to the needs of each individual. I emphasize the importance of a strong, compassionate therapeutic relationship and work primarily from a trauma informed, client-centered model. I incorporate elements of emotion focused, narrative, dialectical behavioural, internal family systems, parts work, attachment, strengths/resiliency based, and somatic approaches. I primarily work from a process oriented place by working on issues brought up in the moment and spending time breaking down the beliefs, emotions, and behaviours that accompany each issue.

Most of my clients haven't found relief. They've been to many different therapist without resolution. They are not interested in medication to resolve their PTSD, CPTSD, anxiety, depression, stress or self-esteem issues and may have considered suicide in the past or used other forms of control behaviour to help them self-regulate their emotions. They typically have experienced childhood trauma through verbal, sexual, neglect and/or physical abuse that has invaded their adult lives. Or, they may have had completely normal childhoods but were, ​for example, adopted and are dealing with issues of belonging.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
