We all have a story, and this story matters.
Therapy is a space created for you to explore your life in a judgment-free way. People come to therapy for many different reasons, some people come to therapy as they are struggling with anxiety, depression, loss, or grief. Others are having relational problems with a partner, family, or friends. Some are having work difficulties, or navigating life transitions. Some are dealing with trauma, shame, and identity based issues (such as sexuality, gender, race, body image). Whatever your story is, we will engage in it together. Therapy can be short-term or long-term, and will be tailored to your needs. Early in our therapeutic relationship we will establish your hopes and goals for therapy.
The terms Psychotherapy and Counselling, are often used interchangeably, and can be used as such. Some see the difference as, Counselling being a more short term intervention that focuses on behaviour patterns and change, and Psychotherapy being a longer term work to engage the deeper roots and causes of the behaviour.
