Specialization & Services
Individual counselling is achieved by a cooperative effort between you and your counsellor. I provide a safe supportive and confidential place for you to address your concerns.
Individuals with a background of abuse, emotional deprivation, family dysfunction and addiction can benefit substantially from long term psychotherapy.
Long term psychotherapy is indicated when ones psychological past interferes with present day relationships and emotional well being on an ongoing basis.
Short term therapy can be useful to individuals seeking help and understanding in dealing with a particular problem or situation.
Couples counselling is an opportunity for each of you to identify and learn about your negative patterns of behaviour that interfere with a loving relationship. Couple counselling can help you modify the patterns and take responsibility for them in a positive way that promotes closeness and intimacy.
Dysfunctional patterns contribute to the couple's inability to identify and to satisfactorily meet their own and each others emotional needs and expectations.
Marital strife can sometimes include the inability to separate out and thereby to protect and support the couples emotional needs with regard to family and outside pressures.
The marriage couple is the foundation of the family.
A marriage breakup is the break-up of the family.
Marital therapy can often prevent both from happening.
Long Term Psychotherapy:
Grieving past losses is a large part of long term psychotherapy, whether it involves the actual death of a loved one or the losses related to failed parenting.
Many personal psychological factors can interfere with the grieving process.
Bereavement therapy provides a psychological safe place to work through the obstacles to the grieving process.
Short Term Psychotherapy:
To provide therapeutic support and assistance to a client who has recently lost a loved one.
To assist the client through the grieving process.
Family members learn to identify and co-operatively work together to solve their conflicts and problems as they relate to the family and family members.
Apart from any biological hindrances and traumas, a person's core sense of self and manner of interacting with others is learned mainly in the family of origin.
Family therapy therfore is an effective means in dealing with psychological problems at the source.
