“The opposite of addiction is connection” – Johann Hari

Our lives are a cosmos of colors – and each color, an emotion, or thought. Human nature is to connect with others, but what happens when we are overwhelmed with the stresses of living? These thoughts and emotions can come out in big ways, at times, outside of our own awareness. This may look like isolation, a panic attack, a lack of confidence, being stuck in the past, worried about the future, or the feeling that no one is listening. Sometimes we may find other methods of seeking connection, such as drinking in excess or engaging in risky behaviour. Do you want to move towards a “life worth living”? Would you like to feel more grounded? Would you like to feel more connected and live in the moment? Do you want to build your self-esteem and confidence? Do you want to create the space to survive and thrive within the waves that come?

In working together, your therapeutic journey will be tailored towards your strengths, needs and goals. You will have a safe space to experiment with mindfulness, grounding, and emotional regulation and work towards building a toolkit that you can use everyday. Together, we can work towards becoming more confident, being present in the moment and living your best life! 

As a Counsellor-In-Training, I employ an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, harm reduction, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic and both Cognitive Behavioural and Dialectical Behavioural Therapies. You can expect sessions to work towards solutions, looking at different perspectives of your world, and supporting your transformation to where you want to be today. As a Counsellor-In-Training, you can expect high-quality care and to receive the benefits I receive from ongoing supervision and ongoing learning opportunities in a variety of therapeutic approaches.

If you experience anxiety and depression, ups-and-downs in your relationships, self-esteem issues, substance use or a desire to strengthen your self-confidence and what is working well today, book a free 20 minute meet-and-greet, and we’re on our way!
