Tips for getting the most out of counselling:

1. Know that it is ok to seek help - the most successful people in life are the ones who step out of their comfort zone.

2. Feeling confused and not knowing what to say - or feeling like you have too much to say - is absolutely normal. The key is deciding to try.

3. Acknowledge that it takes courage to reach out - it is an important first step.

4. Feel free to ask questions and give feedback to your counsellor when things are going right, and when something feels off.

5. Try to be curious about your situation and be open to questioning your judgements, assumptions, beliefs, and perceptions.

6. Many things in life are pretty serious, but always make time to include some fun, and to notice the light-hearted stuff as well. 

7. Living well is not a destination, it is a journey.  So, practice gratitude, kindness, compassion, and connection, because it is these things that make wonderful memories along the way!

 

 

 

 

Services offered through Living Well Counselling Services

 My practice consists of incorporating interventions that cater to your specific needs.  Since each person is unique, it is crucial to avoid trying to fit a person, or their challenges, into one or two specific theories.  Instead, I draw from various scientifically based approaches and adapt them to your circumstances.  My professional focus is on helping adults and youth struggling with mental health challenges, and I specialize in trauma, addictions, couples, and family therapy. 

 

*** I offer both in-person and virtual counselling services.  E-counselling is done via telephone or through a secure telehealth platform.  I use Doxy.me which is much like Skype, and is HIPPA compliant. ***
