Guylaine (she/her) holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. She is also trained in the practice of Ashtanga (Hatha) Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation which she has been teaching locally and internationally since 2002. Through training, Guylaine is able to reframe and integrate mindfulness traditions from the east with western psychology—the former being supportive in recognizing one’s difficulties and patterns, the latter being useful in terms of learning how to let go of reactivity in order to work with issues and problems that negatively affect one’s life.

I work from the perspective that everyone has basic healthiness, a natural yearning for brilliant sanity and the wisdom of wholeness as part of their being. Conditioning and confusion can obscure these endowments but they are never absent. My job is to help draw out this wisdom for healing that is already there, by encouraging awareness. I begin with client-centered listening that honours where you are now, and the change you want. I then move into more experiential work to facilitate transformation. The contract for change and the pace of change is always in the client's hands

When you become aware that your protective system is not letting you live the life you want to lead, therapy helps unburden the parts that keep you stuck. Through Internal Family Systems therapy you can get to know your inner system of protection, distraction and inner freedom. Protection may be anxiety, anger, depression and distraction may be numbing, dissociation, addiction and procrastination. You learn that some of your protection is based on what worked in childhood but is no longer serving you now. With couples I focus on learning to become relational through the work of Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy.

Each professional in Halifax then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Halifax psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Halifax specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
