As a registered psychotherapist, I feel truly honoured to be working with my clients on their journey to well-being and self-discovery. The longer I spend doing what I do, the more I am amazed by the inner resilience and capacity for healing that we all have. Pain and difficult emotions is something we are all familiar with. The nature of being human is moving through the ups and downs of life to the best of our ability. This is often messy and non-linear and healthy connection can make a world of a difference during difficult times. For me this means working just as hard on bringing a solid and grounding presence for my clients in their own journey.
Early in my career I have spent most of my time working in inpatient treatment. This meant witnessing my clients go from a state of absolute crisis in their lives, to slowly learning how to function well again. Eventually, I noticed that healing and change can occur once their felt safe and supported by a community. I then saw my clients able to flourish and find their sense of self-confidence again. I have had the honour of helping individuals and families heal from long term struggles with addiction, mental health challenges and relationship disturbances.
I am confident that with a little help and guidance, as well as the right coping strategies, we have the capacity to thrive.
This means getting the right help at the right time.
