Therapy can give you support, validation, coping skills, and strategies to change your perspective or your behaviours. It can give you a better understanding of yourself and your relationships. It can give you greater peace of mind and help you tolerate difficult feelings and situations. Your therapist creates a safe, non-judgmental space for you to express yourself genuinely and may “get” you in a way no one else has.
Psychotherapists help clients facilitate and deepen their own healing process. They also provide feedback, guidance and psychoeducation, rather than advice or answers. If you are new to therapy or exploring unprocessed trauma, therapy may make you feel slightly worse before you feel better. If you have been thinking about contacting a therapist for a while, just getting started may bring you some relief. Usually, the more you put into therapy, the more you'll get out of it.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-400-2261. I will make every effort to reply to you within 24 hours. Booking an appointment for the free 20-minute consultation call is the first step.
The consult is for you to describe what you’d like help with and to ask any questions. I will describe my approach and also ask you some questions. During the call, part of what you’ll want to get a sense of is whether you’d feel comfortable working together.
Listening to you gives me information on how I can best meet your needs. If I don’t think I’m the right therapist for you, I will provide referrals to someone else who can help you.
