Counselling Services

Individual Counselling

This might be for you, if…

  • you are struggling in your relationships and seem to be playing out the same old patterns
  • you feel like you can’t quite make sense out of the pieces of your life
  • you feel stuck and can’t quite get your momentum to make the changes you want in your life
  • you are tired of getting in your own way
  • you think there must a better way to tackle what’s going on in your life
  • you are ready to make change in your life 

There are common issues that bring people to counselling, such as anxiety, depression, separation/divorce, life transitions, trauma and more. Generally, these issues come down to our relationship with ourselves and/or our relationships with others. Counselling can help you do better at both through understanding yourself and others in a different way, along with learning new strategies and skills to do relationships better.

What you can gain from Individual Counselling:

  • personal growth
  • reduced stress
  • greater insight into yourself and others
  • happier relationships
  • more self-fulfillment
  • more acceptance and self-compassion

Couples Counselling

This might be for you and your partner, if…

  • you want to strengthen and deepen your relationship (be proactive) 
  • you feel stuck in the same old patterns and habits
  • you still love each other, but are questioning if that is enough
  • you have some hurts that you can’t heal on your own (betrayal)
  • you are facing some life transitions and want to face them together (becoming a parent, empty nest, retirement, illness)
  • your relationship is ending and you want to do that with intention and kindness
  • you are ready to make change in your life 

Couples counselling is not always an easy step to take, but it can make all the difference for both of you and for your children if you have them. It is often in our intimate relationship where we come to heal what we did not get as children. And it is the perfect place to do it! We can learn to create safety and security in our couple relationship, which then extends out to any children you may share. 

What you can gain from Couples Counselling:

  • increased relationship satisfaction & intimacy
  • reduced stress
  • greater insight into yourself and others
  • improved communication
  • increased understanding, compassion & acceptance of one another
  • creating a relationship where your children feel safe & secure to grow and thrive

 

Co-Parenting/Family Counselling

This might be for you, if…

  • your children are being negatively impacted due to conflict with your co-parent
  • you want to have better communication and a more positive relationship with your co-parent
  • you want a neutral third party to facilitate a conversation between you and your co-parent
  • you want to reduce your involvement with the adversarial and costly court system
  • you think your child needs counselling to fix their problems (they might, but you could be the answer)
  • you want more peace and harmony in your family

My approach to co-parenting/family counselling starts with the parents. I believe children do best when parents (together or not) can communicate effectively, provide safety & security and an environment where they can develop and grow into who they are meant to be. I believe parents need to be stronger, wiser, kinder and their children’s go-to person(s). This framework means I start with the parents and only invite children in when it is developmentally appropriate.

What you can gain from Co-Parenting/Family Counselling:

  • a parenting framework to reduce conflict and increase everyone’s well-being
  • happier children who feel safe & secure
  • knowledge, insight & strategies that support you in your parenting journey
  • more fulfilling family life
  • more acceptance and self-compassion for yourself and others in your life

 What Co-Parenting Counselling is not:

  • it is not mediation, although you can work on parenting agreements
  • it is not legally binding, although your lawyer(s) or a judge may recommend it to improve your co-parenting relationship
  • it is not about parenting capacity or decisions about custody
  • it is not about evidence for court
