I have gathered experience working with adolescents, adults and couples, with a special interest in individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, personality disorders, self-harm and trauma, as well as couples experiencing relational, marital and/or sexual difficulties.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Ottawa or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Ottawa counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Ottawa. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Ottawa, psychologists, and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Ottawa or treatment for self harming.

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.
