Counselling is a collaborative process between a counselor and an individual in which the individual is given an opportunity to work through their feelings, thoughts, and experiences to better understand themselves and how behavioral patterns may be problematic. Through counselling, an individual is able to examine and access their exisiting emotional, behavioral, and psychological resources and, if necessary, develop new resources to enhance their life and relationships. The objective of counselling is for an individual to achieve clarity, inner peace and satisfaction in their lives and in their relationships.

• difficulties managing stress
• coping with traumatic events (past and current)
• grief and loss
• identity concerns

Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is an efficient integrative therapy, which can access deeply-held beliefs and experiences that may be resistant to traditional counselling techniques.
EMDR is a powerful psychotherapy method developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, which reinforces healthy and positive experiences. Now among the most widely researched of all trauma therapies, EMDR has helped an estimated half-million people of all ages relieve many types of emotional distress from extreme life-threatening trauma to performance anxiety.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® (SP)
SP was founded by Dr. Pat Ogden and is a body-oriented talk therapy. It integrates verbal techniques with body-centered interventions to safely study and explore habitual patterns of organizing information. SP is profoundly effective in calming residueal trauma, from life-threatening experiences, attachment/relationship wounds, or both.
EMDR and SP draw on current brain research and compliment each other in the therapeutic setting.
