Attentive Therapist

ADULTS/YOUNG ADULTS

Knowing oneself comes from attending with compassionate curiosity to what is happening within.- Gabor Mate

Individual counselling (sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. It allows individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

THERAPIES OFFERED

​ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an interactive, evidence-based therapy where the clinician and client work as a team to develop skills and promote psychological flexibility. ACT integrates skills to help clients connect to the present, accept the human experience, develop self-compassion, plan values-guided actions. ACT is solution-focused and strives to assist clients in living a more rich and meaningful life.

ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a non-talk, brain-based therapy that uses eye-movements to assist clients in effectively processing problematic physical sensations, thoughts, and emotions relating to a specific event or concern. Clients are fully conscious during the sessions and are guided through the processing by the clinician. The advantages to ART is that it is relatively quick (1-5 sessions depending on the situation) and clients do not need to discuss their thoughts, feelings, or memories unless they choose to.

INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS

Internal Family System Therapy (IFS)

“Internal Family Systems is a powerfully transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy. We believe the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing.  Our inner parts contain valuable qualities and our core Self knows how to heal, allowing us to become integrated and whole. In IFS all parts are welcome.

IFS is a movement. A new, empowering paradigm for understanding and harmonizing the mind and, thereby, larger human systems. One that can help people heal and helps the world become a more compassionate place.”
