About Therapy

 

Change is the business of psychotherapy, and therapeutic change must be expressed in action – not in knowing, intending, or dreaming.

Irvin D. Yalom

 

Therapy is goal-directed conversation in the service of change.  Fundamentally, the goal of therapy is to bring you to a point where you can make freer choices regarding your life as your own best parent or self-manager.  Another fundamental goal is to help you avoid foreseeable regrets.

The particular course and duration of therapy is determined by individual life history, current circumstances, and motivation to change.  It varies from person to person.

As your counsellor, it is my responsibility to provide a safe and private working environment.  I will give you my undivided attention, and will apply both my theoretical knowledge and my personal experience of you to the problems at hand.
