Hi there! I am Shirley, a Doctoral level Registered Psychotherapist and Supervisor with 25 yrs' experience. I work well with people who feel misunderstood elsewhere, who want a direct but caring approach. My background includes a meandering path, with participation in the Arts/Health/Fitness. I supervise an amazing team who have trained in evidence-based practices including mature Psychotherapists and a Nurse/Social Worker. We often see clients who are are intelligent, & creative, with diverse ethnicity or lifestyles. We welcome LGBT2SQ+ clients. Our fees are related to level of experience of the therapist.
Our therapists work similarly, in a goal-directed/compassionate way. With anxious and depressed clients, we draw from CBT/Mindfulness. With eating issues, the focus is healing emotions that have gone underground. Trans clients are supported in their journey. Systemic, attachment focused and EFT methods are used to help client with relationship issues.
Creative people and those who find it hard to find a good fit usually do really well with us. You are not too complex to be understood! Its just about fit. We will be honest and genuine to help you determine if we are right for you. You deserve to have ease, confidence, peace of mind and energy to reach your goals. Let us help.
