It is with regret that at this time I am not taking new clients. My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness , the burden of a traumatic injury or complex trauma, a diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, depression, unprocessed grief, or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.

Depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, stress, burnout, perfectionism, self-esteem, chronic illness , grief and life transitions are the most prevalent mental health issues I am privileged to help others to overcome.
In times of life challenges, we suffer not only as individuals but also in our relationships. Since 2008, it has been my passion to support individuals, couples and families in their quest to turn personal and relational challenges into opportunities for personal growth and greater connection. Collaboratively, we work towards trauma and conflict resolution to help unfold each one's unique potential, as well as that of their relationships. I connect with my clients in person or virtually using Zoom technology. In addition to my private practice at Centrex, my services are available virtually through Crux Psychology, Halifax, NS.

Feeling overwhelmed these days? Many of us are walking around stuck in a state of fight, flight, or freeze and we may not even be aware. The latest research says that the three ways we can find calm are: connection, safety, and being in the present moment. My goal as a therapist is to provide a space that makes these conditions possible. By engaging with our emotions, our mind, and our body in a safe and integrated way, we can move past "the stuckness" and find hope in places that we didn't think were there.

One of the consequences of stress is re-experiencing it in the mind and body, leaving us depleted and disconnected from life. Intense reactions can be confusing and distressing. Making sense of our experiences, putting them in perspective, and changing unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving, and coping increases our resilience. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and have a particular interest in survivors of sexual violence and exploitation; first responders, frontline workers, military, veterans and their families; survivors of adverse childhood experiences; workplace stress and life transitions; and older adults.

Hi, my name is Steve Gates and I have been working in mental health for 15 years with 7 years working as a counsellor with the Nova Scotia Health Authority. In my work, I try to blend my training with your expertise about you. Using this approach, I have seen people make progress through situations that truly seemed impossible. In my experience, once people accept where they are and make realistic goals, they tend to make progress. The “feel better” part does seem to take time, but it tends to follow the changes.

CURRENTLY NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS. “Until you stop breathing, there's more right with you than wrong with you." (Jon Kabat-Zinn) This is also my guide and intention as a Registered Counselling Therapist. My work is to help an individual experience themselves differently while providing compassion, presence and skill in a safe space. I offer an integrated, eclectic approach that is based on each client's needs. Understanding attachment style, the effects of trauma and the mind-brain-body connection inform my therapeutic approach.

I consider myself to be an eclectic practitioner. I employ many different therapeutic approaches including: Narrative, CBT, Solution Focused, Trauma Informed therapies, Mindfulness practices, ACT and Behavioural Modification strategies. I tend to work primarily from a Narrative Therapy approach, which is an approach to counselling that seeks to be respectful and non-blaming. It centres the client as the expert in their own lives and views problems as separate from the client themselves. Narrative Therapists assume clients have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them in reducing the influence of problems in their own lives.

How to find a specialist?
