Certifications in brief treatment modalities like CBT , anger management and grief recovery, provide me with skills that I use as an adjunct to psychodynamic, open ended psychotherapy, at times when it is useful.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist providing psychodynamic psychotherapy for individuals, by telephone . I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, bereavement, anger, addictions and trauma. I also assist people in their understanding of how these and other such difficulties can affect their relationships with themselves (low self esteem), and with others (families, friends and colleagues) and vice versa. This understanding opens up the avenues for change that you may be looking for. I believe that we all have a natural striving for health, but often lose connection with it due to life's vicissitudes.

I most often draw upon CBT techniques, as well as Emotion-Focused and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
Clients of all ages come to me with a range of concerns, such as marital problems, mood disorders, relationship challenges, parenting struggles and other disturbances. They want the opportunity to tell their stories without judgment, to be asked the right questions, and be heard and understood. With this in mind, clients are assisted in identifying clear attainable goals for personal change in a collaborative manner, and empirically validated methods are used to help them achieve their goals.

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
