BRIEF, SOLUTION FOCUSED
This type of counselling is typically 1-4 sessions rather than ongoing. People find it helpful for solving problems that crop up now and then, or in times of stress or significant change in their lives.
Relationships of all kinds (personal, professional, intimate ) exist on a spectrum of healthy-unhealthy. Maintaining boundaries, enhancing self-awareness and communicating effectively are all essential to managing the stresses that sometimes come with relationships. Understanding personal values is one of the first steps to building and keeping healthy, happy, helpful relationships.
Building strength and resilience after trauma takes time, patience and self-compassion. This type of work takes openness to one's thoughts, feelings and body signals/sensations. It also involves taking a look at our mental, emotional and relationship well-being. I believe clients can begin to empower themselves through kindness, mindfulness and self-care.
Sometimes the cycle of "peaks" and "valleys" in our lives feel overwhelming and difficult to manage. Together, we can work at understanding anxious responses and times of low mood. Once we understand our individual responses, we can approach them and learn to change them with strategies that work for us.
It is my philosophy that we all have strengths in different areas (whether we realize it or not). Sometimes it takes the help of a counsellor to tap into those strengths in order to find our way through a situation. This type of counselling may be brief or ongoing.
This approach works with our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. CBT looks at adjusting the way we think and act in a given situation in order to change the way we feel about it. This model (like the others) focuses on the present as a way of improving things for the future.
Rosewood Counselling provides personal growth / wellbeing counselling that just may be the right fit you're looking for. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology (MACP). I am a Professional Member in good standing of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. This is my second career as previously I worked for 10 years as a teacher. I am passionate about building connections with people, and I recognize that it is sometimes in the smallest gestures where people help each other feel safe and supported.
Working with a counsellor to tackle challenging life situations can be hard work, but it can also be so rewarding. Each person's situation is part of their story - the pieces that have brought us to be who we are today and who we will continue to become. I believe in every small step that people take to improve life for ourselves. Each step takes courage.
