****No longer accepting Clients****Life can be overwhelming, unfair and full of the unexpected. As we seek change in our own behaviour and circumstances, we are often met with unexpected pain, anxiety, and anger that can be difficult to manage. Psychotherapy is a process in which we address obstacles in life and set goals to healing, understanding and moving forward. There is not challenge in life, big or small, that doesn't deserve the thoughtful reflection of therapy.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

Do you want to try something different which will challenge you and direct your awareness to how you are living your life? Awareness is the first step in making any change. Awareness gives you a choice: do I keep doing what I have been doing or do I want to "try on" a new behaviour and see what changes? Together we will work through issues which are interfering with your ability to live your life fully in the here and now.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

You feel off balance with your emotional, physical or spiritual health but find it hard to reach out. When you do try, you may feel like you're burdening others or the idea of opening up to someone you don't know might seem challenging. This is why trust is at the core of my practice because I recognize how hard it is to share or try something new. Together, we'll create a non-judgemental space so you can feel safe sharing your hopes, joys, fears and sorrows (and everything in-between).

You might find that you are experiencing a life changing situation that is evoking undesirable feelings, or have been sitting with some of them for a long time with no explanation at all. Daily life can be a challenge as we navigate and try to understand our life paths. Ensuring that we achieve a form of happiness and overall peace on our journeys can often be a little bit more difficult than expected. It is true that sometimes life happens and may get in the way of how we progress which can leave us feeling stuck and experience one or multiple of the many human emotions that may hinder our progress towards achieving a joyful state.

The variety of techniques and relationship building methods used in treatment are designed to increase one's sense of self worth, inner peace and development of healthy boundary. Self awareness is a priority, integral to the process of mending past trauma and reclaiming a sense of wholeness, peace
