My therapeutic approach is humanistic, experiential and grounded in Person-Centred, Gestalt , Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural, and Internal Family System models.
As a counsellor, I intend to bring compassion, openness, curiosity, genuineness and cultural sensitivity to create a warm, safe and non-judgmental space for the clients to heal and change. I aim to utilize awareness and presence as instruments of empowerment for my clients. I invite the clients to make contact with their senses, emotions and thoughts in the present moment to facilitate awareness and acceptance, as I believe healing and change happen when individuals accept and embrace who they are.

I use a relational strengths-based approach with elements of mindfulness, gestalt , CBT, social justice & psychodynamic approaches, helping you decrease anxiety, improve your mood & experience more confidence & hope.
Whether you are feeling anxious & overwhelmed, depressed, stuck or hopeless, grieving or feeling alone, therapy is a place where it is OK to talk about the hard & confusing things, where you get to tell the truth as you see and feel it – your truth. If you experience shame, guilt, disappointment, regret, anger or resentment in your life, counselling gives you an opportunity to understand yourself better without being rushed or judged. Listening to all the parts of you that want to be heard can lead to positive change: A sense of relief, better relationships & sleep, feeling more grounded & living a more meaningful & authentic life.

I integrate Polyvagal, Interpersonal and Gestalt approaches into my practice with, along with CBT skill building.
You might have come to this profile because you are in some kind of distress. I want you to know that challenges are to be expected in this life and I am so glad that you are choosing to take the steps towards a healthier, more peaceful existence. Perhaps your distress is a result of physical, emotional and psychological injuries. Whether they are acute or longer-term, those injuries can often keep us from coming back to a safe place, both internally and within relationships. Together we can explore those points of injury and healing to build an empowered, safe, content, present sense of self that is not ruled by past experiences.

Life’s challenges can be difficult to cope with. We all feel stuck at some point in our lives and need support. Stress can leave you drained, anxious, ruminating and wondering how to move forward. Life-transition(s) can be challenging and overwhelming whether it be moving to a new place, changes in a significant relationship, or the loss of a loved one. You are not alone. Thank you for taking a step to look into therapy. In doing so you are taking an active part in your healing, courageously reaching for what you would like to have in your life. I will support you with building awareness and increasing resiliency.

My counselling approach integrates Person-Centered and Feminist, informed by aspects of Existential Therapy and Gestalt , therapies which allows me to value and encourage the spontaneous meaning making capacity of human beings and centers the rights of a person to explore and express their subjective experiences.
www.elisabethvanassum.com. I engage with people experiencing challenges with life transition issues: middle age, education, career, family, separation, gender transition, fertility, depressive periods, moving, death, physical changes, illness…etc. Life transitions, although always inevitable and often unsettling, offer opportunities for insight, change, growth, wisdom and joy. I fundamentally believe that if you do the work, you will get the insights you need to make the best choices for yourself.

I would like to offer you my appreciation on how important the step you are giving right now is. Finding a psychotherapist can be daunting or disconcerting at first but the impulse that brought you here means you want things to be different, right? Maybe with less anxiety, less suffering or less loneliness. Maybe with more space to be who you are and experience more easiness to relate to others. Past traumas, being raised in non-attuned contexts and any form of oppression impose ruptures to the dialog between us and others and the internal parts of our self. These cracks generate conflicts, suffering, shame, and a self-alienation.

Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
