If you are dealing with stress, anxiety, or issues in your relationships, counselling or therapy could be just what you need. If you feel depressed or unmotivated, or like you’ve hit a wall and don’t know where to turn, you’ve come to the right place.

The intent of counselling/therapy is to relieve mental and emotional suffering, and restore a sense of ease within the body and mind.

To help you get there, I use a variety of approaches, and most of them include paying attention to your body and emotions, rather than your thoughts. Decades of research show that uncomfortable sensations and feelings may be related to dysfunction in the nervous system and unresolved emotional experiences. This is very different than talking about your story and working to change your thoughts and beliefs (although, at certain times, that may be helpful).

You can read more about the approaches I use, here. For couples therapy, click here.

In our work together, you can expect to become more aware of your experience…

This includes your thoughts, feelings, relationships, and the patterns that keep you stuck. We’ll work with these things to help you get out of your own way, and let the natural wisdom of your body emerge. This typically relieves discomfort associated with stress, anxiety, and panic, and results in more calm and ease.

Where appropriate, we’ll work with your emotions to help you understand why they are there and what fears and needs are driving them. Often, this includes looking at our relationship with ourselves and others, and understanding our attachments to other people.

By understanding our relationships we can take clear action towards resolving conflict and distress so we can feel more connected and whole.

I work exclusively online with my clients so you can have your sessions from the comfort of your home. Working online is just as effective as in person — many studies have confirmed that there’s no difference in the outcome of therapy. You can read about some of them here.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
