My practice is based upon evidence-informed techniques (including CBT , DBT, EMDR, self-compassion, and mindfulness) and human development research, combined with your own personal insights and experiences.
Overwhelming emotions, negative thought patterns, and painful past learning can make it hard to be in our own heads. Sometimes we end up fighting ourselves or getting in our own way as we try to manage our pain. The things we try might not work, like trying to use shame and self-criticism to bully ourselves into feeling better. Or, they only help in the short-term, like numbing, avoidance, obsessing, or trying to control everything. By learning to work with ourselves differently, we can learn new, more effective ways to move us forward into a life we want to be living.

We all have times when we feel weighed down by our thoughts and feelings and this can often keep us from connecting with others or creating boundaries that we know are important.

I use a non-judgmental and supportive approach to highlight your existing strengths and support you along your healing journey.

CBT , narrative therapy, motivational interviewing and a variety of other therapeutic modalities are useful tools when used in tandem with a genuine caring counselling relationship.
Racing heart, shaking hands, breathlessness, and an urgent sense of imminent danger are some of the signs of anxiety. Some people have heart palpitations or flutters, prickling sensations, choking sensations, dizziness or nausea. It's important to rule out medical factors, but if a doctor has told you that your symptoms are being caused by stress or anxiety, know that this is a highly treatable condition and it doesn't mean you're weak or crazy. In fact, feeling like you're losing your mind and having difficulty focusing are features of extreme anxiety! We can address this.

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.
