How can therapy help me?

Counselling offers you a safe space in a trusting relationship where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. It also allows you to try out different behaviors with low risk, and see if they bring you more effective results. Counselling is a unique experience where it is all about you. Depending upon the presenting issue, I will work with you to establish your own goals. For example, if you wish to manage your OCD, we will use psychoeducation to explain what OCD is and how it works. Then, I will use expose and response prevention (ERP) to help minimize the OCD.

Will our sessions remain confidential?

Everything discussed in session, stays in session. It is completely private and confidential. There are three conditions that by law warrant breaking confidentiality such as: harm to self, plan to kill another person and if there is a minor you tell me about that is being harmed physically, sexually or psychologically. In the latter case, that needs to be reported to youth protection. I respect all information told to me within therapy and treat your story as if it were my own; so it deserves privacy. You can read more about my privacy policy on the Confidentiality Policy Form, which can be found on the Helpful Forms page.
