COUNSELLING BARRIE – THERAPY APPROACH
Holistic Healing for Body and Mind
The approach I take can range from basic level health teaching in specific areas such as; developing self esteem, self-awareness, establishing personal boundaries, emotional connections, building communication strategies and social skills, stress and anger treatment and improving your personal judgment and insight.
I believe in taking a client-centered, whole body holistic approach to therapy in a safe, confidential, comfortable and professional office, focusing on resolving a wide variety of personal issues for my clients.
More sophisticated in-depth approaches, including “self-excavation” and a blending of Cognitive-Behavioural techniques and a variety of proven, psychotherapeutic approaches may be necessary to progress treatment and achieve complete and lasting success.

I understand that every client has individual concerns, issues, and needs. Clients are generally more comfortable and more responsive to therapies and approaches that suit their specific needs and personal style.
Every client is unique, and each person I work with benefits from a unique approach. In most cases, individuals are unable to change old patterns without the help and guidance of a professional.
Once you have made the decision to commit to therapy, we decide upon the frequency of our meetings. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. Most individuals are comfortable with meeting once weekly. During stressful or crisis times you may feel you need more intensive therapy and may attend therapy multiple times per week.
