Healing Alliance Counselling
Managing your life's hardships together...
What Is In A Name?
The name “Healing
Alliance” is rooted in the belief that everyone, regardless of where or how
they grew up, who they were in the past or who they are today, want to feel
understood. Unfortunately, in today’s hustle and bustle society, often times in
peoples’ everyday life, they do not feel heard or listened to, and least of all
understood. They may experience that people do not take their struggles
seriously, or perhaps they do not want to "burden" people in their immediate
circle with their “problems”. This being said, I believe that the relationship,
or therapeutic alliance
between myself and client is the most crucial component of
counselling, and how this alliance progresses is a pinnacle point of therapy. It
is my hope that at the end of your sessions, regardless of technique, diagnosis
or treatment plan, that you leave feeling heard, understood and cared for.
Approach to Counselling
It is my understanding that each client coming into my office, even if given the same diagnosis, will have a different story, their circumstances and subsequent difficulties being as unique as DNA. Therefore, clients are treated using an integrative client-centred approach, exercising techniques from various therapy modalities including Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment and Family Systems Theory, Mindfulness, and numerous experiential techniques. I appreciate the uniqueness of each client and their story, therefore each treatment plan takes the needs and learning style of each client into consideration.
