I believe that mental health is an integral part of our well-being which is underpinned by an appreciation of the intricate interplay between the mind, environment, and physiology. Life challenges should not steal your joy but rather be an opportunity for personal growth. I believe that attitude is key therefore changing your perspective about life is a big step towards healing and living a better quality of life. Just like physical health mental health is something to be celebrated and worth investing in. -Carpe Diem-

You are safe here, and you are not alone. As Carl Rogers once said "The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination." Reaching out is the first step into the direction of the good life that you seek. Whether you and your partner are experiencing some rough patches, if you as an individual are finding your anxiety levels have risen, or if you have unresolved trauma that you can feel creeping in and taking it's toll, I can help.

Amidst these times of disruption of the world as we knew it, many are experiencing a deep sense of loss, uncertainty, fear for the future and a sense of hopelessness. Some have lost employment, others have lost friends and family through death, for most, the stability of everyday reality has changed dramatically. Consolidating these experiences, allowing the processes to evolve and find expression, in a holistic and meaningful way, can assist in lightening the load that is ours to carry. In adapting to change we are able to reimagine, see possibility and potential and embrace a new way of being that strengthens our resilience

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
