*Accepting New Clients via Video* - Starting counselling for the first time or at any point can be a very intimidating process. My priority is to make this experience less overwhelming by being transparent about the process, helping you identify the challenges you're currently facing, making goals, and creating a plan for change that you are comfortable with. We will explore the situation(s) that have brought you to counselling, discuss how you have coped so far and start to take on new perspectives by understanding the way your emotions and thoughts are impacting how you feel and behave.

My aim is to provide each and every client with the support and guidance they are looking for by creating individualized treatment plans. Life's struggles come in many shapes and sizes and focusing on areas in which we have control is a great stepping stone to formulate the life we want to be living, instead of getting stuck in the usual negative thinking that many of us get caught in from time to time.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ME! You get up everyday but feel like you are just going through the motions. You live with others but feel lonely. You try to get things done but end up scrolling through social media. You feel afraid, angry, sad, bored, anxious. You have feelings that you can't explain or don't understand. You are struggling to cope. The pandemic has affected us all and for many it has compounded the pain we are in. This situation is testing all of our skills and coping strategies. If you need someone to talk to, I can be that person.

Welcoming New Clients. Are you feeling overwhelmed and looking for a counselor who has compassion without judgement? I counsel from a strengths-based framework, working with clients to embrace coping strategies to achieve their goals in health and happiness. My approach to psychotherapy is rooted in narrative therapy, family systems and vicarious trauma/compassion fatigue. I believe that people who access counselling are at a place in their lives where they have identified wanting to be in control of their future selves. I'm looking forward to hearing from you so that we can start down that road together.

If you are in the process of seeking counseling, I suspect it can be for any number of reasons or combination of reasons (stress, mood issues, current or historic family issues, past or current trauma, job related issues, personality conflicts, self esteem issues, simply wanting perspective in life, all sorts of other issues that would generally contribute to one simply feeling discontent or unhappy in life). During times like these, it is often helpful to have a person that is dedicated to helping you explore these issues in a caring and collaborative manner and in a manner based on experience and evidence based practice.

Substance use, trauma and mental health issues can put a significant dent in someone's quality of life. From being uncomfortable with how much you are using, or how it is affecting your life, to wishing you could shut your brain off; to being suicidal or overdosing, or hurting yourself. Where do you start? Talking to someone who has seen, and helped with these things before, can be immensely relieving. If your teenager is going through these problems, it is also relieving to know they are talking to someone about them. Trying to speak teenager and parent at the same time can be challenging.

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 K2H can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in K2H or for a K2H coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include K2H coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.
