Lorna Barnes, Oak Tree Counselling

Licensed Professional Counsellor, CT, CPC
I find clients are looking to understand themselves, to find reasons they struggle the way they do, and discover how they got where they are. We've all been influenced by our experiences, whether good or bad. Good healthy experiences give us the tools and confidence to navigate life, but what happens when our experiences have been far from good? A child experiencing abuse, trauma, loss, and neglect believes they deserve it or it's their fault, not knowing the adults in their lives are responsible to help them feel secure and confident. Negative childhood experiences often throw individuals into feeling too much responsibility, becoming people pleasers, carrying much shame and guilt, feeling like a burden, social awkwardness, experiencing cognitive distortions, depression, addictions, loss of identity, anxiety and panic disorders, inter-relational problems, lack of confidence, and a lack of boundaries. Clients need to know they're not to blame and there's hope to experience a healthier and purposeful life, the life they were meant to have. Clients need to know they belong, they matter and are not a mistake. If you want to find freedom, purpose, contentment, and healing schedule a 30 minute free consultation to explore whether we'd be a good fit to journey together to a better you.

Counsellor/Therapist, OT Reg. (Ont.), Psychotherapist
We all have the capacity to manage what comes our way, but sometimes it can feel like too much to carry on our own. Have you experienced a trauma that continues to bother you, impacts your relationships, career, or the ability to do the things you love? Do you feel anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed most days? I want to help you feel more in control of your emotions so you are better able to navigate your day-to-day. Whether that means unravelling experiences of the past to make better sense of them or focusing on the here and now, we can do it together. Your emotions don't have to rob you of living a meaningful life.

Cayla Townes, Memento Psychotherapy & Counselling

Registered Psychotherapist, RP, CCC
I want to hear your story. The stories we tell about ourselves shape the way we live our lives and impact every choice we make. But a lot of the stories we tell ourselves aren't true; they're based on painful experiences we've had. Therapy can help you change the way you see yourself, your life, your relationships, and your future. I can help support you as you heal, working through the painful things that have happened and the negative ways they've impacted you. Just focusing on managing symptoms can be helpful, but healing the root cause of pain is what I help clients do. Get in touch with me today to see how I can help you.
