"Are you feeling over-burdened by things we all struggle with from time to time? Are you feeling paralyzed by indecision, loneliness, anxiety, rejection, grief, fear, anger, or sadness? Therapy is a powerful way to face the difficulties inherent in being human. Although many of us learn to avoid pain, few of us learn the road to more lasting relief. Together, we will bring clarity to your inner thoughts, feelings and hopes as you actualize a more peaceful and purposeful life. Drawing from my training and experience, we'll devise a unique plan to develop strategies toward achieving your goals. "

"Each of us comes into this world with unique gifts and an individual perspective. When we are able to use our gifts to handle the stressors and challenges that enter our lives we are able to successfully cope with them. However, when we become overwhelmed by our circumstances to the point where our abilities to cope and enjoy life are affected, that is a sign that consulting a therapist can be useful. Taking that step and calling a therapist takes a lot of courage and it shows that you want to make a positive change in your life."

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in M4V, 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 Toronto M4V are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M4V you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M4V and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M4V or family therapy in Toronto M4V.
