Psychotherapy identifies and explores negative thoughts and emotions, as well as their origins and the self-destructive behaviours that often accompany them.
Psychotherapy involves the deep exploration of underlying causes of client complaints, however, the ultimate goal is to make positive changes in the client’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviours in the here and now.
I support clients from many backgrounds facing various challenges within a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental relationship.
My psychotherapy services include the following:
Whether or not mental health goals involve improved relationships with others, individual support is often helpful with establishing an improved relationship with oneself. Relationship issues can also be explored within the unique therapist-client relationship.
Family therapy is often systems based and involves supporting more than one member of a family at the same time. It can facilitate positive change in how family members relate to one another and function as a unit. If one role in the family changes, all members are affected. Illness, divorce, death, relocation, and other personal challenges of family members can affect family dynamics. Family members may also participate in individual therapy, if appropriate.
Group therapy can be an effective environment to improve social dynamics or explore issues in a safe environment. Clients can also get support, inspiration, and ideas from peers who are struggling with similar issues.
Couples therapy involves individuals in a committed relationship. Clients who attend couples therapy want to learn how to work through their differences, improve communication, and problem-solve challenges in the relationship.
