Therapeutic Approach

What makes us different in our approach?

Trauma Focused Therapy

Trauma is the root of where all our psychological problems originate. Whether it’s a big traumatic event or a series of small ones, trauma is the underlying cause of many of our mental health issues. Trauma can be defined as anything you personally perceive to be threatening, overwhelming or upsetting.  

“Trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentence.”

  • Peter Levine

Many people suffering from trauma-induced symptoms tend to believe that there is no hope for recovery. However, it is important to remember that these symptoms are treatable. With the right help, people can heal the wounds of their past and move on with their lives. There are many effective treatments available, and a trained therapist can help you find the ones that are best for you.   

“There is a wisdom in trauma when we realize that our traumatic responses and imprints are not ourselves and that we can work them through and thus become ourselves.”

Our team of experienced registered clinical counsellors have specialized skills and expertise in understanding and alleviating impacts of trauma. 

We utilize mind-body approaches based in neuroscience which tackle the root of the problem. For most of the people that come to us, that root is past experiences of stress and trauma. These treatment approaches effectively release the negative impacts of trauma.

Person-Centered & Compassion Focused Therapy

We work from a place of curiosity and collaboration. We believe that everyone has the inherent ability to grow and change, and that therapy can be an effective way to facilitate this process. We aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you feel seen, heard and accepted.

Being in a relationship based on empathic attunement and support enhances our capacity to heal. When we have someone else on our side that treats us with care and compassion, it helps us relate to ourselves in positive ways as well and foster self-compassion.
