Having a good fit with your counsellor is important.
Reasons you might seek counselling with me:
You are a highly sensitive person.
You feel overwhelmed by fear and doubt too often.
You find yourself irritable with the important people in your life.
You lose control of your emotions and this is negatively impacting your relationships.
You are wanting to have stronger relationships (including your relationship with yourself).
You have lots of good ideas of what might help you feel better and feel frustrated with limited change or by feeling stuck.
You are struggling to figure yourself out (like why are you so different from your family?).
You feel like there were traumatic events and moments in your life that might be holding you back.
You have lost a significant person/being in your life and feel stuck in the pain and grief of this loss.
You have a deep longing to be heard and understood and to understand yourself.
You are a self-healer and are seeking someone finely-attuned to support and accompany you in your self-discovery.
We all have painful, difficult moments of grief and loss. These experiences can be defining moments of our lives. Our bodies can store memories of feeling unsafe. The paradox is that when you accompany these parts with compassion, acceptance and love, these parts can shift. You integrate and are transformed.
I have walked this path so I have lots of empathy for your struggles. You can live a beautiful, joyful life. You can feel free. When you fall out of balance you can get back into alignment faster and easier.
Currently I offer video counselling and phone counselling in British Columbia and in person counselling on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo.
