INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

A Safe Context

Personal problems can be intimidating and frightening. People may feel ashamed about the issues with which they are struggling, the thoughts running through their heads, or about their behaviour. They may also feel disheartened by not being able to make significant headway on their own. Our goal is to provide a non-judgmental environment where you feel understood- A safe place where you can do the difficult, and sometimes scary, work of therapy.

 

A Collaborative Process

We view therapy as a collaborative process whereby the client and therapist work together to identify and address the client's personal concerns. We work with clients to establish meaningful and concrete therapeutic goals that form the basis for monitoring progress. While therapy may progress in different directions, the process often includes:

  • Clarification of problems

  • Development of insight and self-understanding

  • Development of self-acceptance

  • Learning and practicing new skills

 

A Flexible Format

In order to allow for a creative and flexible approach that suits each client’s needs we draw on a number of theoretical orientations including:

  • Mindfulness

  • Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT)

  • Psychodynamic

  • Humanistic
