try asking, "Whom do I want to become?"

Individual Psychotherapy


Some personal issues people bring to psychotherapy:

  • • relationships
  • • communication
  • • hurts that still hurt
  • • physical problems
  • • anxiety, stress, panic attacks
  • • self-esteem and self confidence
  • • body image, weight & eating
  • • workplace problems
  • • loss
  • • abuse
  • • addictions
  • • loneliness
  • • anger
  • • failure
  • • depression


Challenging problems require an in-depth, holistic approach:

  • Work with your emotions – learn to name your emotions, befriend them, understand what they are trying to accomplish and where they are coming from; express emotions in healthy and constructive ways
  • Get out of your head and into your body – pay attention to areas of tension, postures, facial expression ... take care of the body while you take care of your emotions; draw on the wisdom of the body
  • Use your brain – identify and understand your thought patterns – take a look at your attitudes, values, priorities, behaviours and develop healthier patterns and habits
  • Pay attention to your dreams – when you’re asleep you’re not in control – discover the creative healing wisdom coming from your unconscious
  • Work with your spiritual beliefs – whether or not you’re religious, you have beliefs about the meaning of life, about love, about justice, about purpose, about the future . . . tune in so you can either benefit from your beliefs or change them

Psychotherapy by telephone is also available.
