Lidia Damian
Registered Psychotherapist


I am meeting each person exactly where they are in their journey with integrity, compassion, kindness, active listening and unconditional positive regard.

We will work together to enable you to recognize and identify patterns of behavior or emotional pain that can pose problems in managing difficult situations and relating effectively to others. We can also work together in creating a step-by-step plan to support you in getting from where you are to where you want to be, in embracing your unique qualities and strengths that you have, in addressing any challenges you are currently facing in your daily life.

Some of my areas of exploration and experience are:

Relationships – co-dependency, unhealthy attachment, narcissistic behaviours/patterns, trust issues, , infidelity, grief/loss
Self-esteem/Self-worth issues
Difficulties trusting oneself and other people
Over-responsibility for others & people pleasing / caretaker roles
Understanding emotions & feelings and how to process them in  safe and healthy way
Inner Child/Vulnerable Self recovery and integration
Fears, Anxiety and Stress – understanding the language of various emotions and various tools and techniques for better coping
Benefits of empathy paired with healthy boundaries
Core Issues awareness – issues that come up repeatedly and interfere with our day-to-day functioning (inner life and external life – relationships with family, friends, colleagues etc.)

My approach is client-centered. Along with conventional talk therapy, I may include techniques/modalities based on your unique needs and goals – always explaining the modality and with your permission before proceeding:

Mindfulness & CBT – exercises and techniques that will address mind rumination, constant worry
Gestalt therapy techniques
Inner Critic/Perfectionist/Saboteur etc – only a few of our internal ‘parts’ or thought patterns – using Internal Family System (IFS) techniques to tame/transform their negative messages/impact
Mindfulness & Guided Visualization
Somatic Therapy/Focusing

You can expect a safe, non-judgmental, confidential and inclusive environment. You can expect my presence, my integrity, compassion and unconditional positive regard. Psychotherapy and counselling can help you understand the various ways the underlying issues that can impact how we think, feel and behave. Every aspect of our lives affects each other and finding solutions and fulfillment in one area can positively affect other areas and initiate change and transformation in a flawless way

You can contact me to schedule a 15 min introductory phone call via email or phone or text – describing your needs for therapy (i.e. video/in person/phone/text, your ideal time to start and have sessions – daytime/evenings)

Look forward to work with you.
