"I have been in private counselling practice for 15 years, and in wellness, personal development and the media for 25 years. My practice draws self-referring, high-functioning adults/couples with addiction, phobia, anxiety, depression and attachment disorders affecting their lives beyond their historical, current or perceived ability of self-control. In couples, I usually begin individually to create safety and self-awareness, then back together towards clear self-advocacy, expression and to build trustful communication. EMDR in the couple context can clear a lot of old trauma and wounded pattern-associations that mire us in destructive relational dynamics."

Sometimes these thoughts become patterns and we need to work through what's going on. I think a person needs to release these thoughts in our heads.

"First, congrats on looking for help! It's not always easy. Perhaps you've been trying to manage and change on your own for years. Feeling like you need to be able to "handle" everything that life throws at you. Like you "should" be able to figure it all out on your own. Putting effort into changing, only to find yourself repeating patterns, feeling defeated, and not knowing what to do next. It is exhausting! Choosing to finally get help may feel hard, but honestly, from here it should get easier. You're choosing to get off the rollercoaster of doing it all alone, and counselling, which we know can be a total game changer."
