Life sometimes seems full of loss: a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or cancer, divorce, relationship breakdown, job loss, or even the death of a loved one or a beloved pet. Loss can look like strong emotions, intrusive thoughts or uncomfortable physical sensations in our bodies. In order to numb our pain, we often rely on distractions (scrolling, food, shopping..) to get through the day. What you're feeling is perfectly normal, but we were never meant to grieve alone! Together, we can learn to live with loss and perhaps even carry it differently. To walk a little lighter. To thrive, find meaning and hope again despite the pain of loss.

Pain is such a normal part of our day to day lives, but how often do we stop and wonder if maybe there's a better way to live? The good news is that there is! In fact, pain, sadness, and anger are often a signal that something is not right, and once we recognize that, it becomes the starting point for healing and transformation. We do not have to live as things are, there is a hope for something better. I look forward to the opportunity to step into your difficulties, embark on the path of healing, and discover the hope that we all have.

Sometimes, life experiences have a significant impact on our ability to embrace the present moment. As a result, we engage with our current circumstances trying to defend and protect ourselves from past wounds. Yet, we long for more. More acceptance, more motivation, more healing. Maybe you've realized, "this is not working. Something needs to change and I need to figure it out." You have reached the point when you're no longer satisfied with wondering how things will work out. You want to see tangible change happen.

Our lives are filled with constant changes, transitions, and adaptions - how do you deal with them now? Is there another way you want to deal? Living in such a multicultural and multilingual society can make these natural happenings in life difficult. I believe when we find a centre, a feeling of being grounded, connected, and heard, everything else becomes a little less difficult to work through. This sense of a centre or grounding is unique for each of us - maybe you need thorough planning, maybe it's more going with the flow. We can figure this out together.

I offer a safe, private, confidential environment to explore what you want your life to look like and to help you get there. Therapy is hard work, but the reward is a more satisfying you.

I believe that all people harbour significant potential for intimacy and compassion towards themselves and others. Grief, betrayal, trauma, stress, and abuse are becoming part of everyday reality. Without support, they may lead to helplessness, depression, anxiety, addictions, or unhelpful coping strategies that inhibit their true potential. Over the past two decades of my professional career and my training in psychotherapy, I learned that the best path forward comes from within. Healing becomes within reach with the help of a trained professional and confidant who can listen, relate, and gently guide you as you navigate forward.

Chris is a therapist who understands life and human existence can be difficult, lonely, stressful, and sometimes even helpless and hopeless. Chris is concerned about existential questions that everyone must face, human existence, the meaning of life, dying and death etc. In his view, to help clients contemplate those questions would shed light on the client’s deeper understanding/feelings about their lives, empowering them, and helping them get out of the existential trap they are in now.

Christian Counsellors

Why is it important for a therapist to be culturally sensitive?

Therapists and clients don’t need to share the same belief system or background to be able to work effectively together, but a therapist whose training includes a focus on cultural competence may be better able to form a therapeutic bond with individuals from a range of backgrounds, as they will have experience in tailoring their approach to each client—and will be prepared to acknowledge and consider the effects of culture, religion, and other factors on each individual.

Why is it important to find a therapist sensitive to Christian values?

Each person brings a unique history and background to therapy, making it important to find a licensed therapist who is trained in a broad range of treatment modalities. In addition, for people who grow up in a faith tradition that strongly influences the way they conduct their everyday life, finding a therapist who understands or shares that background can ease the disclosure of sensitive information and facilitate the therapeutic process. For some clients, a Christian therapist is likely to incorporate faith-based principles into emotional healing techniques.

How do I recognise an effective Christian therapist?

Christian therapists are licensed mental health professionals—holding a master’s or doctoral degree in medicine, nursing, psychology, counseling, social work, or marriage and family therapy—who are also familiar with Christian beliefs and values. They have an understanding of the importance that Christian principles play in the lives of individuals and families, which allows them to be especially sensitive to the kinds of struggles that can affect daily functioning. Like all effective therapists, a Christian therapist will have undergone training and certification in a variety of treatment modalities that help people through crises and enable them to master the challenges of life.

Why might someone feel comfortable with a Christian therapist?

While training, qualifications, and experience are always important, research has long established that a strong alliance between client and therapist is a major contributor to therapeutic success. An alliance is likely to be strengthened with a therapist who not only is responsive to questions and concerns but also shares a client’s faith and values. Sensitivity to spiritual matters as well as to everyday struggles can provide a welcome sense of safety and contribute to the bond between client and therapist, both of which support the therapeutic process.

Who is included in Psychology Today’s directory of Christian therapists?

The directory of Christian therapists includes professionals who have shared their background in their profiles. However, not all therapists choose to disclose this information, and they may not appear in search results for this reason. The directory also shows therapists who indicate that they have extensive experience working with Christian clients, regardless of their own background or religious affiliation.
