Are you feeling overwhelmed and as though life is off track?
Counselling can help you find solutions and guide you towards a healthier path.
You’ll do more than solve problems in counselling. You also have an opportunity to learn who you are, to discover why you do things the way you do. Counselling is about connecting with yourself, having an honest conversation and figuring out how you navigate through your life. We focus on drawing out your strengths and supporting you as you make practical and effective changes.
We provide a range of services that lead you towards balance, healing, growth, improved self-worth and more connected relationships.
Has it become difficult to see the positive in your life? Are you feeling like life is out of control and you can’t find balance? Are you noticing that constant stress is interfering in your life and your relationships? It may seem like there is not a day that goes by where you are not feeling lonely, worried, defeated or sad.
Can you relate to some of the following?
- Thinking negative and critical thoughts about yourself and your life.
- Feeling sad and tired, unable to get yourself going.
- Feeling anxious, stressed and unable to think clearly.
- Withdrawing from people, feeling isolated and alone.
- Suffering physical, emotional or mental exhaustion.
- Experiencing moodiness, pessimism, frustration, impatience.
- Believing yourself undeserving of success or achievements you have made.
Do you long for more happiness in your life?
When we find ourselves stuck in the cycle of frustration and negativity, it can feel as though it takes too much energy to do things differently. We often don’t know where to begin, how to make change or how to be kind to ourselves as we go through the process.
We’ll help you sort through what you are feeling inside, understand your feelings, and gain clarity and a new perspective on where you are stuck in life. Counselling helps you discover solutions and holds you accountable for making changes.

Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Uncertain of what you are doing in your relationship? Not sure if you want to stay together? Has something happened that’s difficult to get past?
Talking to a counsellor can help put your relationship in perspective. Couples counselling happens with both partners in the room and helps you identify the problems in the relationship separate of each other. You’ll begin to communicate again and reconnect with the spark that drew you together. You’ll learn to identify what each of you feels with curiosity and compassion rather than blame. However you decide to proceed in your relationship you’ll come to a greater understanding of each other and yourselves.

Techniques our counsellors may use to help you:
Talk therapy is a big part of what we do, but there are some additional techniques we use. Some of these include but are not limited to the following:
We believe that healing from trauma is a natural biological process innate to all living creatures. Somatic Experiencing (SE) is about restoring the nervous system to a state of equilibrium. In SE, we normalize traumatic symptoms as an adaptive survival response to extraordinary events and understand why we react in such a way. SE therapy is a naturalistic approach that helps release previously undischarged energy due to trauma and other distressing incidents by tracking sensations in the body to access and enhance the natural healing patterns in all our bodies. SE works within your manageable range of activation to alleviate the distress of traumatic symptoms. We work in the here and now and focus on the sensation and body memories occurring in the present. SE works with a wide range of traumatic experiences from the trauma of a car accident or surgical process to the trauma resulting from rape, repeated abuse or combat.
Emotional Freedom Technique:
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an energy psychology tool that combines talk therapy with acupressure. The practice consists of tapping on meridian points while talking through a certain problem. EFT is an immensely versatile technique that works well for emotional stress including anxiety, fears and phobias. It is also useful for other difficulties such as insomnia, weight issues, pain management and perfectionism. EFT will also help enhance work and athletic performance.
Lifespan Integration works on a deep neural level to change unhealthy coping behaviours and negative thought patterns. Lifespan addresses a wide range of therapeutic concerns and is effective for individuals with past trauma, anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationship patterns and eating disorders. This method is also successful at healing early attachment relationships. Issues can begin to resolve in a brief amount of time, typically shorter than conventional therapy.
Hypnosis, guided imagery and relaxation techniques can be great tools to reduce stress and become grounded and centered. Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind, working on a subconscious level where we are open to suggestion. Hypnosis utilizes this relaxed hypnotic state to facilitate desired behavioural changes including eating patterns, smoking cessation, anxiety reduction as well as increasing self-esteem, overcoming fears or reducing insomnia.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing involves bilateral stimulation of the brain through eye movements, alternating sounds from ear to ear or tapping on alternate sides of the body in order to help the brain integrate and heal from incidents. Like hypnosis, EMDR bypasses the conscious mind to help resolve trauma on a neurological level. EMDR has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as an effective treatment for individuals who want to resolve trauma and other painful issues.

People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.
