I believe everyone can benefit from therapy at any and all stages of life. Everyone will have their own reasons for seeking out therapy. We all live in an isolating, and sometimes lonely, world where meaningful communication can feel impossible - I hope to provide a therapeutic relationship where meaningful communication can help you understand yourself and identify a way of living which feels right for you. Changing how you see yourself and the world is not easy, but the process need not be one you undertake alone. Therapy can be a collaborative journey of exploring and understanding what is most vital within yourself.

Welcome to Repertoire Counselling. At a certain point life feels overwhelming, we struggle to carry and understand the weight of our feelings, leading us to feel lost, stuck, alone, anxious, angry and fighting through life all by ourselves. My journey to becoming a therapist emerged out of painful experiences, which I am grateful because I love helping my clients to navigate their way through all that life has to throw at them. Talking to someone outside of your situation, who is not a family member or a friend can help in gaining relief, self-understanding, self-acceptance and help to build resilience and envision a way forward.

When life feels too much, we all need a helping hand. Let me be that helping hand. Together we can work towards confidence, calmness, self-esteem and improved relationships in every area of your life.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
