Through the counselling process, individuals can learn new skills and tools so one can make significant life changes. You and I will establish goals for your counselling plan so we can determine the steps you will take to get there. The relationship you build with a counsellor can help support you through many of life’s obstacles. In therapy, you will gain greater self-awareness and learn new strategies, new ways of thinking, and new perspectives so you can live the life you want to.
The therapeutic process includes how you share your feelings and experiences, how you experience therapeutic activities, and how you relate to your counsellor. This process is important and provides a unique and effective way to promote change in how you interact with others, yourself, and the world. The psychotherapy process is not about advice giving, but about helping you identify your own insights and understanding of issues you may be encountering.
Everyone has the ability to reach their full potential and to build their capacity for tenacity. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental clinic space at the Sound Mind Counselling Centre or a nature-based therapy space in Squamish for you to talk and explore difficult issues you may be experiencing. I am here to support you and respect your views.
