Maybe you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem, or depression. You may be facing a challenge, a crisis, or a life changing event. Events from your past may be interfering with your life in the present. Perhaps you have never felt that anyone has really listened to you or understood you, let alone accepted you. Maybe you are feeling stuck or experiencing a lack of direction. Seeking support and receiving help is a courageous step towards a better quality of life. Counselling can help you to accept the things that you cannot change and help you to bring about changes that are possible.

Coming to therapy can be difficult, especially for men. We're rarely taught how to talk about our feelings, or that it's even acceptable to share them. Whether as individuals, or as part of a couple, I provide an environment where you can talk openly, without shame or embarrassment. When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help partners improve their connection. I ensure that both partners feel safe, acknowledging that it's often male partners who feel the most vulnerable in therapy.

The process of dealing with a motor vehicle accident, head injury (mTBI), or sports injury can be life changing. The impact of a traumatic event can filters into every part of a person’s life. Support in processing and integrating an experience like this is possible and can be transformative. My background in the areas of injury rehabilitation, PTSD/trauma, concussion care, chronic pain management, and sport psychology, forms the base of my counselling/clinical work with clients. Together we will work through the emotional trauma caused by mTBI, PTSD, and the emotional distress caused by these injuries. It’s time to START LIVING!

I think everyone should have a therapist. I realize how self-serving that sounds, but if we see a medical doctor on a regular basis (yes, you should do that too!) for our physical health, why wouldn’t we have someone in our pocket for mental health as well? If there is a stigma around mental health, there is stigma of having a therapist as well. I regularly meet with people that have never accessed a mental health professional and after one session you can see the anxiety leave them as I help take away those social pressures and instead focus on you, that’s what I want, to be team YOU!

You’re feeling burnt out, on edge and depleted to the point where you don’t know how to stop feeling this way. You feel disconnected from the things that made you the best version of yourself. You may not be sure who that is anymore. You might find coping skills and strategies that used to be effective are no longer working. You are less able to juggle what you were once easily capable of and you feel frustrated. Cumulative stress can take a significant toll on even the strongest and most motivated individuals. When there are too many stressors over a period of time without sufficient relief, small things feel overwhelming.

Have you ever had moments where your past becomes present? Do big feelings sometimes make it difficult to manage and live in the way you would like to? Trauma can sometimes make us feel stuck and although we might try, it can be really difficult to overcome some deeper problems on our own. Sometimes we develop coping mechanisms that effective to a point - are not great long term solutions (substance use, overworking, perfectionism etc). If you are ready for new, healthy and lasting solutions to your problems, Psychology can help you to get back to yourself - or learn to recreate an improved version of yourself.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in Southwest Calgary, Calgary can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
