Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.

"HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy: Are you feeling symptoms of anxiety, depression, lost in direction, low self-esteem, financial and relationship troubles? And are you unsure as to why you are feeling this way? Would you like to change certain behaviours but can't seem to move forward? With "HEAL THE SOURCE" Therapy, we connect directly with the core source of the issue (usually stemming from childhood) that is always linked to an emotion through exploratory questioning, engaging the unconscious mind with empathy and compassion. Once we acknowledge the source, we can begin to work with creating new ways of being and integration.

Looking for support? Therapy provides an opportunity to express big feelings, talk through challenges, explore patterns of behaviour, develop greater self-awareness, and try different ways of being and relating. I practice contemporary Gestalt therapy that is experiential, relational and embodied. I was first drawn to Gestalt because it embraces an egalitarian relationship between client and therapist, takes a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, and invites creativity. I emphasize the development of self-awareness as a way to increase choice, flexibility, acceptance, and ultimately wellbeing.

Emotional suffering is painful and lonely. It doesn't have to be. Psychotherapy is talk therapy that promises change through self-awareness. The more understanding we have of ourselves, our feelings, the more choice, fulfillment and peace we have in our lives. Understanding our emotional life contributes greatly to the joy of life. In psychotherapy, we examine our emotional life with the goal of distinguishing functional from dysfunctional patterns of behaviour. Psychotherapy provides a context for close examination of our relational life and can help us uncover relational habits that contribute to our suffering.

Although it may be difficult to imagine getting through life's ups and downs without your disordered eating, I can help you to develop new ways of coping and to achieve lasting recovery.

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