*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* We often believe that we are alone in our suffering, that no one has experienced or could understand what we are going through, or conversely, that the suffering of others is much greater than our own, that ours does not deserve attention. Fear of judgment and vulnerability can keep us from reaching out when we need it most. That is why I believe there is power in creating space to explore obstacles that hinder us from thriving.

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counselling) Counsellors
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Ottawa can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counsellors in Ottawa help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Ottawa Counsellors work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Ottawa all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Ottawa academic counsellor or school counsellor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

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

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