Counselling is a chance to talk over what is on your mind. I can help you learn new skills and ways of looking at situations so that you will be more capable of solving new problems on your own in the future.
Personal or Individual Counselling: Promotes self-understanding and provides an opportunity to learn to make better decisions, improve one’s relationships, and generally increase personal effectiveness.
Marriage and Family Counselling: Gives clients an opportunity to be seen individually and then seen together in session.
Parenting Support Groups: Offer opportunities to learn from each other with guidance from an experienced professional counsellor.
Grief Recovery: The Action Program for Moving Beyond Loss:
The Grief Recovery Handbook (written by John W. James, Russell P. Friedman, Eric J. Cline) is the reference manual I often refer to in working with grief and loss. It is designed as an action program for moving beyond loss. Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss, yet most of the knowledge and information we acquire about dealing with loss is not normal, natural, correct, or helpful.
“Recovery from grief or loss is achieved by a series of small and correct choices made by the griever.”
“The more I use this book, the more I believe that unresolved grief is the major underlying issue in most people’s lives. It is the only work of its kind that I know of that outlines and problem and provides the solution.”
John W. James, Russell P. Friedman, Eric J. Cline
GRIEF RECOVERY SUPPORT IS OFFERED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS OR WITHIN GROUPS INCLUDING WORKPLACE SETTINGS
Caregiver Support: Caregivers are usually alert to the stresses of people they help. They are not, however, always as alert to the stress and fatigue that can slowly surface in their own lives, and need to be reminded of normal stresses that may affect them. If you or someone you know is trying to cope with these stresses, I can help you find the support you need.
Stress management: Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps to identify and challenge maladaptive patterns of thinking. Hypnosis can also be used to treat many symptoms and emotional conditions successfully.
