The individual counselling programs are solution-focused
and client-centered. That means you are invited to not only speak to
what's 'wrong' or problematic in your life, but also what's right; your
strengths, talents and resiliencies, as well as the resources in you,
in your support network, and your environment. We talk about where and
who you've been, but primarily focus on where you want to go and how
you're going to get there. Sessions are 60 minutes in duration and appointments
are available evenings and weekends as well as weekdays.
E-counselling (via Skype) is also available
for clients who do not live in the area or have other barriers to attending
Individualized Intensive Brief Treatment
Individualized Intensive Brief Treatment (IBT)
plans are intended for people who want a more intensive therapy experience,
either because the severity of their issues warrants more intensive
intervention, or because they want to focus on working through an issue
in a more condensed period of time. Starting with a thorough assessment,
we develop an individualized treatment plan focusing on the goals you
want to meet and the issues you want to resolve.
An IBT program typically involves meeting for
90 minute sessions, twice a week for a period of time, and following
up with comprehensive aftercare.
Therapist and author Harriet
Lerner wrote: "Intimate relationships cannot substitute for a life
plan. But to have any meaning or viability at all, a life plan must
include intimate relationships."
we view the things we struggle with in ourselves as a cause or a result
of the distress in our relationships, feeling disconnected in our intimate
relationships can have a powerful impact on every other aspect of our
lives. Couple or family counselling offers a place to take another look
at our closest relationships, and move towards greater clarity, mutual
understanding, and connection.
