People come to therapy for different reasons. Many people come because of difficulties they are currently experiencing, which can include long periods of distressing feelings or thoughts, struggling to cope, relationship problems, and/ or difficulty dealing with a particularly distressing situation. Other people come to therapy simply to gain a better understanding of themselves and more fulfilment in their lives and relationships. Therapy is a unique experience and a relationship between you and a professional. It is very normal to not fully understand its nature at the outset.

This client is truly fed up and ready to heal or doesn't want to waste time just growing in awareness, but truly wants to see shifts in patterns of behavior and thinking.

My clients are people from all walks of life. They seek a mind-body intervention to integrate and resolve problematic patterns related to past trauma or current stress. This doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't having talk therapy, just that they want to address the bodily aspect too. Some clients are functioning well in their everyday lives and merely want to learn stress management. Other clients are seriously limited by pain and illness, usually with a history of trauma. All of them feel there's an important connection between mind and body, and that good health requires working consciously at that interface.

Most people just want to be happy. While that can certainly be achieved through counselling, I believe happiness is an emotion, like others, that comes and goes. Instead I work with you to create more peace, joy and fulfilment in your life. These are deeper long-lasting goals that are the foundation of life satisfaction. Over and above the specific concern you wish to work on, I aim to help you connect with who you really are as a person and facilitate the path to who you would like to be.

Life is tough, sometimes very tough. Us, as human beings often forget to take care of the most basic of our needs in favor of immediate responsibilities and often put off the things that fuel us - when our fuel runs out, we are left with the wreckage and very little motivation to pick up those pieces. The healing journey offers a space to recuperate and learn to know and love ourselves again and to remember that sometimes its okay to not be okay. I journey with those who come see me, and noting is more beautiful and rewarding for to see someone transform their lives into something they have always wanted.

Counselling involves the supportive role provided by an empathic counsellor who facilitates a process of in depth self examination, awareness and healing in individuals and relationships. I guide this process by exploring deep rooted belief systems that drive behaviour and emotional reactions in everyday life, ultimately facilitating and providing support through the change process. Clients are given a warm and safe environment where they can express themselves openly and at their own pace, without fear of judgement.

The Individuals that feel as though no-one will understand or who have been told time and time again that they are the ones at fault, either in their relationships or at work. The individuals who feel alone and who cannot speak out due to hidden manipulation and control within a home or who are insidiously abused within a relationship. The individuals who feel that they are the ones who have destroyed their families lives, the individuals who want a safe space, a listening ear and supportive dialogue. The individual who wants clarity of mind, effective coping mechanisms and understanding, these are the individuals I counsel.

Life can be very challenging. We are sometimes faced with situations that are beyond our control, such as the loss of a loved one or the actions of our partners and families. We are not always in control of the experiences life gives us, but we are in control of how we deal with them. At times even our own actions or decisions cause us stress and pain. Whichever journey it is that you need to explore in order to heal and grow, remember to reach out for help. You do not have to go through it alone.

Life can get away with us and may make it difficult to keep in touch with YOURSELF (whoever that is, whatever that looks like) and that is why I value the concept of taking care of yourself/myself, be it spiritually (religion, nature, art, etc), physically (picnicking, hiking or gym), mentally (reading and doing puzzles) and emotionally (talking, drawing, music, etc). We live in a high pressured, and at times critical society which can make it difficult to navigate even the most "mundane" tasks. I believe that having a safe, non-judgmental space in which to explore various issues is necessary in tension release & self-discovery.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
