Vulnerability can make us feel very uncomfortable, but if we view it as a transition, into higher self-esteem/confidence & therefore more life resilience then it is much healthier to forge ahead to find a therapist who can support us. Finding the best fit in seeking a therapist is the most important step in relieving your stress. Many of us struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, depression, suicide ideation, sleep deprivation, separation, divorce, conflict resolution, trauma, relationship, and parenting issues, emotion regulation, communication and assertiveness, boundaries, personal development, caregiver burden and so much more
Envision Counselling & Coaching Services’ purpose is to assist with compassionate support, & education. I fully respect that each person has their own answers. I will be honored to ask unique & clarifying questions so that you can come to your own understanding. I have over 20 years’ counselling experience using CBT, emotion regulation, & resilience building
If you are interested in a free 15-minute consultation to determine if we would be a good fit, I would welcome an opportunity to meet & greet you as well as address any questions you may have. In Maya Angelou's words " I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel "
