At some point, we all face emotional challenges that make coping difficult. I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) who has treated anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues (couples, teen-parent, parent-child, etc.) and other client issues since 1999. I am well know for my no-nonsense client-focused approach which incorporates humour, teaching new skills and learning new ways of thinking and being more joyful, deliberate and present in the world.

Even though your life looks good from the outside, something just doesn’t feel right. No matter how much you accomplish, you continue to feel guilty, small and like you’re not enough. When you think about it, you probably don't even know who "you" are or what you enjoy anymore. Maybe you never really did know. It may feel as though stress has taken over your life. Work is no longer fulfilling, your home life & relationships are suffering and you feel defeated at the end of the day. All of this leaves you feeling overwhelmed, down and confused, and you're not sure how to move forward.

Therapy shouldn't feel like a chore. While it might sometimes be hard to hear what is discussed in therapy, overall you should leave feeling like you've gained something useful or even transformative. Over time, you should feel you are getting stronger, more resilient and have shed layers of fear and anxiety. Of course this process can be overwhelming at times and you might not always progress on the timeframe that you thought you would, but when therapy goes well, you should feel more settled and more clear about your life. You should gain understanding about yourself and others and have a renewed sense of purpose and passion

Things seem pretty awful right now, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel "okay". You're looking for someone who can listen without judgement, help you learn new coping skills, and create a plan to feel better. I believe that every person lives a life with unique challenges and that providing personalized care requires unique solutions. A "cookie cutter" approach simply won't work - instead, we will get to know one-another, and create a plan to help you feel better together. You deserve to be seen as an individual with a unique therapeutic approach that fits who you are, and who you want to be. ​

Therapy involves facilitating self-growth and understanding by identifying core challenges and setbacks in life and teaching clients how to manage them confidently. Personal challenges can sometimes overshadow a sense of self. They can lead to a loss of perspective and motivation, overwhelming individuals with signals of danger and subconscious feelings of failure. Resulting perceptions of disappointment and pain can make it difficult to reconnect with the true self. Navigating the intricate challenges often associated with life experiences leads to a need to explore roots of struggles in a supportive environment.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors

How does mindfulness-based cognitive therapy work?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy originated in the work of John Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He developed mindfulness-based stress reduction, which is a technique found in yoga and meditation. MBCT is a combination of this type of stress reduction and cognitive behavioral therapy; it essentially quiets emotional distress through mindfulness, utilizing proper breathing and meditation. These techniques aim to bring the individual into the present moment when in a state of distress.

When do I know if I need treatment with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

If an individual’s mind is filled with emotional distress and general negativity, the person may feel trapped. A mindfulness-based cognitive therapist can help a person change their thinking patterns as well as their behaviour through calm acceptance and compassion. This therapy can provide an individual with the coping skills needed for a healthier and more constructive life.

What should I expect from mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

This therapy often takes place in group sessions. A therapist will work with the group as well as with each individual. Meditation and breathing exercises are core practices that aim to invite inquiry and discovery into a person’s troubled mental state. The objective is to identify and lessen negative thoughts and behaviours and move toward optimal health and productivity. The individual will see life in a more realistic way. This therapy is supportive, accepting, and warm.

Is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy effective?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is evidence-based and effective. One study found that people with major depressive disorder have benefitted from this type of therapy; the person accepts their distressed thoughts and also moves into healthier patterns of thinking. This therapy also aims to move an individual away from automatic negative responses. This type of therapy can bring a person lifelong change, with higher levels of satisfaction, less stress, as well as positive emotional and behavioural habits.
