An underlying theme in both psychotherapy and my Resiliency Programs is that we are all striving to - and capable of - accessing our innate strengths and desires to grow, heal, and meet our challenges - a lifelong process that evolves in relationship. There are no limits around this concept of relatedness - we are all in relationship with people, environment, family, culture, sexual identity, even behavioural/consumption patterns that (may) no longer serve us."

"Psychoanalysis was originally called the 'talking cure', that is a conversation, which can help you deal with difficult emotional states, such as depression, anxiety, grief, fear/insecurity and/or any other general problems with living. In my experience, it allowed me to recover from painful, familial dysfunction, and helped me to develop in ways I had not thought possible. But whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, the unique intimacy of the therapeutic conversation can always help you to become more conscious of the forces that shaped you, and support you in the possibility of more freely determining your own future."

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in M4K, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M4K are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M4K you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M4K and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M4K or family therapy in M4K.
