My approach to counselling
I entered the field of counselling out of a deep desire for healing for those I met who were hurting. I wanted to know what could move people towards greater wholeness. What I discovered was that the healing process can look different depending on both the person and the counsellor, their wounds, their way of learning and their way of connecting with others.
I draw from a variety of therapies and theoretical approaches in the counselling process including:
Accelerated Experiental Dynamic Psycotherapy (AEDP)
Cognitive Behavoural Therapy (CBT)
Emotion Focused Therapy
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Ingidenous Land-Based Approaches (ITFL)
Cognitive Processing Therapy(CPT) for PTSD
Trauma-Informed Arts Based Interventions
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

The Journey of Change
" The first step to embarking on a journey of change in your life is noticing the changes you have already made. In noticing how you have succeeded you start to tell a new story about yourself. In this story you are the central character- the hero--the one who overcomes-- and the road ahead with all its challenges begins to seem possible."
