"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old,
but on building the new." - Socrates
Amanda George, Registered Psychotherapist
Hello and welcome.
Change happens to everyone - sometimes it seems to flow naturally. At other times it may feel like you're rolling a huge snowball ....uphill ....backwards ....with your eyes closed. We all struggle with change at some point in our lives.
What does change look like for you?
Getting to know those parts of you that feel anxious or depressed?
Understanding emotions and thoughts related to loss or childhood trauma?
Managing your feelings of anger better?
Living your values more fully?
How therapy might help
Psychotherapy can be useful when people are ready to make changes to the way they see themselves, others, and the future. Change can therefore be an opportunity for growth and healing. As your counsellor, I will support you in understanding and transforming the blocks that are interfering with your health and happiness. Additional benefits of therapy may include learning how to:
COPE more effectively with stressful situations
ACCESS your unique strengths and resources
STAY grounded in the present moment
(RE)CONNECT with others in a way you'd like
RESTORE hope and optimism to your life
