Dear Clients;

We are all evolving. We are evolving to serve you better, more effectively, and more conveniently. If that last two year has taught us anything, it has taught us to be flexible, to pivot, and to ‘roll with it’. I am proud of how myself and Yok Knight have done just that.

As I have reflected on the pandemic, I am seeing so many blessings among the challenges. We have shifted to secure video online therapy exclusively. Here is why we are staying online even though some governments are saying, ‘it is safe to go back’.

Save travel time. I recommend you take the extra time before your therapy appointment to mentally prepare yourself for what you want to address and want you want to leave with at the end of the hour. Likewise, after the appointment take 10 or 15 minutes to be quiet with yourself, meditate and consolidate your thoughts and feelings before returning to daily life.

Save gas, and save the hassle of parking. I have always been conscious that people are investing to travel to am appointment. That is not only the time out of their busy life, but also gas (especially very recently) and at time the stress of parking. It takes extra time at the beginning of the appointment to mentally shift from driving to therapy, That time is lost from the more productive therapeutic time.

Enjoy the comfort of home or your office. If you are joining the appointment from home, take full advantage to the comforts available there. Some people have their pet on their lap while we talk; many prepare a cup of their favourite tea or coffee. Choose a location where you feel most comfortable and private.

Why Its Worth Checking Us Out

Often people put off dealing with problems and issues they are facing hoping they just might go away. Unfortunately, this is not a very effective way to manage stress in your life. Going to a counselling therapist can be just  like going to see a personal trainer at the gym vs. going to the gym on your own. When you go on your own you know that you’ll probably get a decent workout. BUT, if you meet with a personal trainer, you know they are going adjust and tweak your workout for maximum benefit, and maybe push you and challenge you in ways you might never have considered…only accelerating your development. That’s what we do too! We are here to support you and strengthen you to live the life that you were meant to live.
We have proven strategies to help bring relief and healing for anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual difficulties and much much more.

I have been providing counselling therapy and teaching therapists for over 25 years. I can tell you the problem or challenge you are facing is not new or unique. Our therapists have helped others before you. There is help available. But your story and your situation are unique. Rest assured that the therapists that are part of our group in Winnipeg are fully trained and caring professionals.  We make sure that you feel safe, understood, and cared for before we jump in with any easy answers. We call it a holding space.
