About

This imperfect moment is the entryway into everything you may want. However, when in the midst of a difficult moment people don't often remember the potential it may hold for healing and fulfillment. Counselling with Paula is an invitation to deepen your engagement with the life you have, since that is the best way to have the life you want. Therapy can guide you to practice the skillful means necessary to release habits that perpetuate dis-ease and discontent in order to transform difficult experiences into opportunities for creativity, healing, wisdom and fulfillment.
Mental health is not just the absence of illness; it is also the presence of wellbeing. In order to reduce undesirable symptoms while increasing the presence of desirable states of being, Paula utilizes: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Yoga movement.
Paula's approach to counselling is integrative, experiential, compassionate and mindful. Counselling is about balancing both acceptance (of where you're at) with (the desire for) change since both are needed for personal transformation. "The paradox is that, once I fully accept myself, then am free to change"- Carl Rogers

Paula Bude's Groups

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills Training

DBT skills training is a weekly group, run like a class, which teaches skills across four main topics: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills. Clients are required to complete homework assignments in which they practice, in daily life, the skills taught during the weekly group lesson. Contact Paula for more details.

More about this group

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression

from MBCT.com: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. The heart of this work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to them. MBCT was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. Contact Paula for more details
