"It's important that you acknowledge yourself for taking the step of finding someone to provide guidance. In my thirty years of experience I've learned that a big part of the healing occurs as a by-product of the relationship between client and psychotherapist. When this relationship is grounded in safety and compassion, the relationship blossoms and healing occurs. My working style is client centered and collaborative. It invites self-inquiry--leading to a deeper understanding of issues and their root causes."

"We all face difficult times in our lives. I believe, however, that we have the strength to meet these challenges head on, overcome our blocks, and ultimately benefit from these opportunities for growth. Of course, we may not always be able to see our way through these times on our own. A collaborative therapeutic relationship established in a safe and supportive environment can allow us to unlock the strength and resiliency we all carry within us."

"The therapeutic relationship is a 'collaborative' one, with a focus on establishing and maintaining a safe and trusting relationship with clients, so we can openly explore the preferred changes in their lives, that they hope for and find ways to relieve symptoms that continually get in the way. These symptoms frequently include, negative thoughts, emotions and actions, that interfere with achieving their hoped for changes. My clients often experience a significant reduction in symptoms, within the first few sessions."

"35 years experience has taught me much about successful therapy. Being understood, whether as an individual or within a couple is critical; my job is to listen well while bringing you my knowledge about how people work and how change happens. You bring knowledge of your life and together we have a conversation about what might allow change to happen. Sometimes, old stories get in the way and revisiting them is necessary to remove obstacles to change. This can only happen when people feel safe. Creating that nurturing environment is also part of my job. While therapy can be difficult, it is also an exciting and rewarding process."

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors
For clients in M5A with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based counsellors in M5A can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as M5A MBCT counsellors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M5A are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M5A you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M5A and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M5A or family therapy in M5A.
