What I Bring

These are key traits that I want to highlight that are invaluable for our work together.

2

AUTHENTICITY 

 

Who you see is who I am! I believe that it is impossible to be a good counsellor if I am not genuine. It does not allow you, the client, to be yourself.

3

ANTI-RACIST & ANTI-OPPRESSION LENS 

This is on-going learning as a therapist but to help clients frame and work through their experiences using principles of intersectionality, power dynamics, and dismantling internalized oppression.

SAFETY 

 

Without the sense of safety, it is difficult to engage in therapeutic work. I strive to emote and create a safe environment for all my clients.

4

NON-JUDGMENTAL ATTITUDE 

Often we find it difficult to say what we are feeling or thinking for fear of being judged. I strive to hear what you are saying without imposing my own judgments. I am not interested in you living the life I think is right for you. I am interested in you living the life YOU want to live.

5

HUMOUR 

 

Counselling is deep work and hard work. It’s important at times to see the light side of things during the course of therapy. I often like to share a light-hearted moment or bring in humour in order to balance the rich process that is counselling.
