I feel there is no one right path for self exploration. Some have that space via reading, spirituality, writing or something else. And for some it can take the form of therapy which is not just problem focused but rather person focused. At times, the motivation for self exploration comes from painful life events occurring outside us or other times it could be the overwhelming emotions building up within us. It can also be difficult to distinguish oneself from one’s difficulties and as a therapist I try to join you in your dialogue, confusion & difficulties. Therapy space is unique for it preserves space for the unspoken words too.

We all experience stress. How we cope with stress either past or present is the challenge. It is possible to acquire coping strategies to not only reduce stress but to reach a place of happiness and resolution. I have been working with individual adults, adolescents, children, as well as, couples, and families for over 40 years. I see people who are concerned about a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, family and marital conflict, parenting, and behaviour management. I have been in positions of program manager, clinical director, and clinical consultant.

Hi, I’m Laura. I am a gentle soul, a nature and music lover, and a person who loves creativity and connection. I was diagnosed with ADHD later in life. I’m intimately aware of its impact on relationships, work, self-esteem, and overall ability to function. I understand feeling overwhelmed and anxious with a busy and overactive mind. I get how a lifetime of messaging suggesting you’re not ‘normal’ can creep into your mind and become your own shameful inner dialogue. I've done my own work to embrace my ADHD diagnosis. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I have learned many tools to not only function but thrive.

Most of us approach therapy with a mixture of hope & fear, for we desire a change but we also wonder if its truly possible. The reasons that bring you to therapy can vary, it could be depression, anxiety,grief, work related issues, relational issues, identity confusion, self jeopardising patterns or simply wanting to understand oneself better. Therapy helps you slowly but steadily change your unhelpful patterns, gain more clarity about yourself, develop better emotional capacity to digest & make sense of your inner conflicts so you can tackle the external challenges a lot better as well.

Intense emotions can pull you into a downward spiral of feeling overwhelmed and lost. It is difficult to face life when you are walking around with a heavy chest or feeling anxious. It is likely that you were never taught how to cope with how you feel or understand why a part of you feels empty inside. It can feel uncomfortable to turn to friends and family, fearing how they may react. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space, where you can feel heard as you work through difficult emotions. I can provide you with the insight, tools and support you need to bring about healing so that you can approach life in a new way.

Do you feel you’ve achieved a high level of success but you’re still not satisfied? Do you find yourself feeling stuck? That something is missing, but just don’t know what that is. Are you having some trouble finding your way to true happiness that you end up living on somebody’s expectations? You want to move forward but you are confined in your own world, afraid to spread your wings because of thoughts that you are not good enough. So, it’s your time to start facing your fears and be the driver of your life, too. Become the better version of yourself by connecting to the source of what holds you back!

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Counsellors

What type of therapy is best for narcissistic personality disorder?

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is best treated with talk therapy, which could involve cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, schema therapy, gestalt therapy, or similar approaches. A therapist will help a patient uncover the feelings that may drive their behavior and discover how to engage with themselves and those around them with greater empathy and understanding, fewer demands, and less defensiveness, with the goal of developing a more authentic sense of self that enables healthier relationships.

How do therapists treat NPD?

By developing a strong therapeutic relationship, and continually focusing patients on relationships, community, and connection, a therapist, through talk therapy, may be able to help someone with NPD change. In sessions, a therapist will help an individual achieve relief from their current stressors, including the treatment of co-occurring conditions such as anxiety or depression. A therapist may also help an individual to recognize unhealthy coping mechanisms, learn new ways of interacting with others, and eventually become able to feel and display empathy.

Can a narcissist be cured with therapy?

Therapy can be effective. After a serious setback or great loss, someone with NPD may be forced to recognize that they are not immune to life’s challenges. That can spur feelings of melancholy and depression that lead them to seek professional help. Once an individual decides to seek help, they have already taken a step that the majority of those with NPD never will. Still, people with NPD often quit therapy as they naturally resist feeling vulnerable, being challenged, or admitting to flaws.

How can you get narcissistic personality disorder treatment for someone?

It is notoriously difficult to convince someone with NPD to seek help. With their feelings of superiority, they may be unlikely to recognize or acknowledge that they have a problem, or that their problem is narcissism. Sometimes, they are aware that they are arrogant and that others resent them but they don’t see it as a problem because they are convinced of their superiority. People with NPD have trouble maintaining relationships, but family members and others who do feel close to them, and whose presence they value, may be able to encourage them to seek therapy.
