I provide counselling to those who are going through psychological distress.

I provide counselling to those who are going through tough psychological times. The aim of therapy is to bring “awareness” to others about why they feel the way they do, and hence, behave and act the way they do. In turn, delving into the source of their pain and suffering also helps bring light into ways to think and act differently. The first step to counselling is awareness. The second step to counselling is healing.

Clients usually come knowing that something is ‘wrong’.

Clients usually come knowing that something is ‘wrong’. It may be an unsettling feeling they get in their heads all the time. A sense of knowing something is ‘not right’ is sometimes not enough in order to work through some deep seated issues people have been carrying with them for a long time. Using such tools as CBT, as well as open-ended therapy, I aid clients into exploring some of the “sources” of their behaviours and beliefs. In turn, they are guided into the process of destroying some of the destructive beliefs that they hold. This is a goal for many people who want to live healthier and happier lives for themselves.

Some clients may have strained relationships with others. Some may have money,work, or health problems. This is because they are holding onto destructive thought beliefs and destructive behavioural patterns.

Some people may have strained relationships with others, some may have money,work or health problems. This is because they are holding onto destructive thought beliefs and patterns. These beliefs trigger the behaviours and acts, which in turn affect their day to day productivity and functioning. Beliefs may have been formed through social conditioning and past traumatic experiences, but they nonetheless hold people back from being their personal best.

There are many destructive beliefs one can hold, including:

-belief that one can never overcome their drug, alcohol, or gambling addiction
-belief in one’s low self-worth, in turn, delegating one’s self to more denigrating situations and roles in life
-belief that one deserves to continue to trapped and locked in abusive relationships

The list goes on..

The list of destructive beliefs can be extensive. Nonetheless, these beliefs are toxic to our well-being. I provide counselling services to assist clients in shedding their beliefs.
