WHAT IS ONLINE TALK THERAPY?

Talk therapy is a tool which helps on a range of issues, from anxiety to addictions to relationships and past trauma

Specialised talk therapy or "counselling" is still one of the best ways to stop self-defeating cycles in your life and establish your personal growth, self-worth, self-esteem, self-confidence, efficacy, compassion, agency and overall wellbeing.

Together we walk a journey that is focused on you becoming the best version of yourself.

If you are feeling stuck, off-balance or that something is missing, these are often signs that you are not living for yourself and that your emotional wellbeing, may have been disrupted at some point and you had to adapt your true-self to suit other people or events in your life.

These emotional adaptations are very often based in the relationships you have with other people and can create many roadblocks that prevent you from living to your full potential.

The good news is that you are not flawed, these responses are often very normal and with talk therapy, you can learn to take control of these emotions and use them as your guides.

To reach your states of inner peace, we may need to align the aspects of our lives that have swung off balance. You are always in control of your direction, but a little bit of support, guidance and care can work wonders. Talk therapy simply helps you to identify your personal growth steps and assists you in achieving your wellbeing goals faster.

Through our sessions, you will ultimately get to

  1. Decide that you want to change in aspects of your life
  2. Explore the possibilities that exist within you
  3. Discover strengths in yourself that you never knew existed and how to apply them in present moments
  4. Take the actions needed to meet your goals

Research shows that focused talk therapy is incredibly efficient in helping you manage many mental health conditions, yet so many people avoid it due to the many stigmas around mental health. The bottom line is that we are no longer living in the dark ages, we know talk therapy works and it’s so powerful that worth it even if you don’t have a “mental health problem” seeing a therapist can be incredibly beneficial.

TRAUMA
Our lives comprise of many events, some good, some bad, many indifferent. Your view of "normal" may comprise of abnormally neative events that create emotional layers and spark self-defeating thoughts and emotions from childhood into adulthood. Let's find some time to safely explore these events to enable you to live without their residual effects.
SUBSTANCE USE

Substance use disorders can include many legal and illegal substances and can happen at any life stage. Addictions can be activated by a wide array of circumstances most often unique to the individual themselves. Focused addiction therapy seeks to unpack those unique circumstances and construct a viable path without the stigma and the pain.

SUPPORT

Talk therapy circumvents the guesswork. Most people just need a sounding board that is able to reflect their story in a way that is progressive and constructive for them. By simply understanding what you have been through, I am able to help establish an alliance that is needed to enable you to make changes to patterns that have caused so much turmoil.

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power”.

Martin Seligman

One of the most significant findings in psychology over the last 20 years is that individuals can choose the way they think.

"Success as a therapist is not found in doing something for the client, but rather, in being someone for the client."

"You don't know pain until you're staring at yourself in the mirror with tears streaming down your face and begging yourself to just hold on and be strong."

James Baldwin

"Nothing is more desirable than to be released from an affliction, but nothing is more frightening than to be divested of a crutch."

Being emotionally bare and vulnerable can be one of the scariest places one can find oneself, which is why you may find yourself hiding behind emotionally numbing behaviour, especially when having to face it on your own.
