How I can help you
Maybe it’s gut-wrenchingly painful for you. Maybe it’s worse.
Perhaps it feels like your skin is being ripped apart from you, or that you’ve lost a part of who you are forever. Sometimes it feels like your world is completely shattered.
I hear you, it can feel absolutely devastating.
I’m wondering if you’re grieving the death of a loved one? Perhaps you’re mourning the death of a relationship or marriage? Or maybe you feel like a big part of your identity has died for some reason. Might you be recovering your career, meaning, purpose and calling in life?
Whatever it is, I get it…I really do. The pain is excruciating, and you just want to make the pain go away, or at least a little easier to bear.
I'd be glad to help. I’ve learned first-hand what it takes to heal, let go of devastating pain, and transform your life into one closer to what you’ve always dreamed.
Feel free to message me by clicking the button above. I would be honoured to walk alongside you as your counsellor.
What to expect
If you click the 'Message' Button above: Count on me to listen and reply to you in detail through text messages. What's important to me is to allow you to speak, vent, and share what you're experiencing. You'll also notice questions from me that are meant to help you unpack what you're going through. We'll be diving in :-) . Together, we'll discover the depths of stories you have to tell, what stories others have told you, and unlock strategies that help you heal and transform your life.
If you click 'Book Session' above:You'll have the chance to share your story with me through Video calls. During the video call, you'll experience our interaction in real-time. It'll feel similar to a counselling appointment in-person. You'll get a chance to see me in person and share whatever you wish as well.
Whether you choose to message me or book a session, I'll be alongside you on your journey of healing.
My Approach:In counselling sessions, I like to understand how you make sense of your life stories, and also the relationships/connections in your life that you feel are most significant to you.
I believe that our experiences in life our all interconnected with our relationships, families, cultural upbringing, personality traits, and spirituality. In other words, in my eyes, it all matters :-).
Whether via Message or Video, our sessions will always incorporate at least these 2 things:
1. Helping you process and work-through your emotions in the moment.
2. Empowering 'strategies' you can use to help yourself daily, even if you're not chatting with me.
My counselling framework includes the following: narrative therapy, mindfulness and meditation, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), balancing chakras & healing, emotion-focused therapy, hypnosis, psychoanalysis, meaning-centred therapy and more.
I'm a Certified Canadian Counsellor, and also hold a PhD in Media Psychology. Again, do feel free to click the "message" or "book session" button at the top of the screen. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Sending you compassion,Nathan
