Attend Counselling Alone, With Your Partner Or In A Group
I work with individuals (pre-teens, youth and adults), couples, and families experiencing a variety of concerns, including:
Trauma / PTSD
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based treatment for various disorders such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress syndrome, CD among others.
This mental therapy corrects and gives the individual life skills to deal with everyday mental challenges. An individual must accept what is and how to work with the present situation. It’s not about what should have been; can’t do anything about that, but how do I move on and use this situation as a steppingstone. It is a waste of time expending all your time and energy searching for what caused the flood instead of trying to find ways and means to stop the flood.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy targets the “now” problem and will enable clients to develop ways of getting rid of that problem.
Do you find yourself living in your past?
Are you stuck in a world of “why”?
Are you still trying to figure things out?
Are you stuck and just can’t seem to move on?
I understand, I have been there! Let’s talk!
Cultural Sensitive Approach
It is the responsbility of the counsellor to have a clear understanding of their clients background and belief system, in order to communicate effectively. One must be aware of their own culture and be aware that the client may or may not embrace your beliefs and should not be judged based on the counsellor’s belief or forced on the client but counsel them accordingly. I do believe though that counsellor should intervene if the client’s belief is detrimental to himself, the counsellor or others. The Cultural Sensitive Approach can be used along side other approaches, such as the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
