psychotherapy involves you and your therapist working together using psycho-social principles and developing a strong professional relationship in order to make positive changes in thoughts, emotions, and behaviours

the goals of therapy

the core goals of therapy are to:

  • humbly examine our everyday beliefs and assumptions
  • expand our awareness of how we elicit respect from ourselves and others
  • honestly assess the validity and helpfulness of our thoughts
  • brave our triggers and challenges to develop effective coping strategies
  • modify negative habits to stand strong in our truth
  • apply wise principles to cultivate our preferred narrative and achieve our wellness goals
  • feel heard and cared for within the therapeutic relationship
