Our approach to therapy is genuine and empathic. By genuine we mean real - our therapist selves are not an act or a façade. This creates an authentic and safe space for you to explore and heal in.
By empathic, we mean that we are constantly looking to understand your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. There are valid reasons for ALL of the things that we do but the majority of people judge an action before they fully understand it. Through empathy, we create a truly validating space in which you feel safe gaining insights into your experiences and reactions; this will help you better understand yourself.
We appreciate that there is no one size fits all approach to healing and that each individual has unique strengths which derive from their lived experiences. We want to help you discover these strengths and draw on them through out your healing journey. Likewise, we believe that our experiences set us apart from everyone else and so the most effective treatments will also be individualized.
We always begin with an assessment during which we learn about your current circumstances, challenges, and goals. We will share what we think would be a beneficial approach and together we will create a treatment plan. In your treatment plans we will use a variety of evidence-based approaches (the ones research shows work for the difficulties you are reporting). Our plans aren't set in stone - as your needs change, so will the plan.
