As the innovative Brené Brown once said "when we deny our story, it defines us, but when we own our story, we can write a brave new ending". We all have a story that's filled with difficult times, hardship and unique experiences that have shaped who you are now. What happens next is up to you, as you have more control than you might think. if you're ready to take the next step in changing your life for the better then I invite you to allow me to be a part of that, where I can offer a safe space free of judgement and criticism. Instead I can help guide you toward your goals offering clarity, perspective and empathic understanding.

I use a variety of resilience-building therapeutic approaches such as Dialectical -Behavioural ( DBT ), Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Emotion Focused (EFT) and Motivational Interviewing.
If there is a magic word for change, it is resilience. Resilience is the capacity to grow despite misfortune, gaining strength from challenges rather than surrendering to them. It really is a vital life-skill and the best news is that resilience can be learned! That's a bonus, given that we cannot have complete control of our lives. Observing the positive effects of such resilience, I became more interested in helping others gain this capacity. There really is nobody quite like you and my task is to work with your individuality. This is why I focus on building your future strength. https://www.centrepsychotherapy.ca/

Along with talk therapy, some of the techniques I use to help my clients are: working with parts - Internal Family System (IFS), Gestalt, Inner Child work - healing your vulnerable-self, CBT, DBT , MBCT, mindfulness, meditation and visualization and others - customized to your personal needs and goals.
Are you tired of having your life and energy hijacked by the needs of others? Are you ready to stop people pleasing? Would you like to live authentically? We can work together on mastering key life skills like: setting personal healthy boundaries, having a clear vision of what matters to you, where you want to go, your needs, and who you are - your True Self - these are the ingredients that lead to inner peace, success and happiness. To have the courage to self-advocate means taking charge and fearlessly standing up for yourself and before doing so allowing self-compassion, healing, strengthening self-esteem, fulfilling own needs.

CBT & DBT therapy is very effective, as is Emotion-Focused Mindfulness therapy.
I WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE. Life can often get in our way, and things can catch up with us and we suddenly realize this is not the life we want for ourselves. Painful, emotional feelings from our past can affect our self-esteem, all our relationships, esp intimate ones, and conflict occurs. Relationships are at our core, and understanding ourselves oft through the lens of difficult relationships help us learn how to be more compassionate, nurture self-love, be better communicators, and to create more trust and belief in oneself. I am often referred to as the "Happiness Locator" & Self Esteem Coach.

Dialectical (DBT) Counsellors
Dialectical behaviour Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Counsellors practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical behaviour Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in North York or for a North York DBT counsellor these professionals provide dialectical behaviour therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioural therapy, and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counselling, DBT counselling in North York and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counselling.
