Every counsellor has their own expertise and styles of therapy they specialize in, below are several of my primary areas of practice.
Do you feel unable to stop your mind from picturing what could go wrong, feeling that nervousness has taken over your life, or are experiencing panic attacks?
In counselling we can explore where anxiety comes from, and tools to manage it more effectively.
Are you trapped feeling low, numb, disengaging from what once brought joy, and lack the energy to feel like yourself again?
Counselling can help you to understand how your depression formed, and slowly work through tools to get out of the dark and numbing space of depression.
Stress & Burnout
Have you noticed that your productivity has declined, your energy levels, focus and memory is not where it used to be and you have begun to be more irritable and cynical to those around you?
Burnout is a condition that rarely goes away on its own, but in counselling we can effectively reduce the symptoms.
Addictive or Compulsive Behaviours
While we often look at alcohol and drugs as addictions, sex, food, social media, work, and almost anything can become an addiction if we become trapped in a pattern of compulsive behaviour.
Counselling for addiction helps to understand the root of why you are seeking addictive or compulsive behaviours, and how to find more healthy alternatives.
Anger is an interesting emotion, as it is often referred to as a "secondary emotion."In society we are taught that it is not okay to be sad, vulnerable, or to cry. Anger can feel like it is protecting us by covering those more sensitive emotions.
Counselling can give you the tools needed to to control yourself and respond to a situation instead of reacting out of anger.
Men's Mental Health
As men we are socialized to act, not to emote. This can lead to anger, hyper fixation on work, and isolation even when surrounded by friends and family.
In counselling we can explore what healthy masculinity looks like to you, and how to develop more effective stress management and communication strategies.
