Developing, Cultivating and Nourishing Your Therapist Identity

This 6-week group will explore the question: “what makes you unique as a therapist”; encouraging you to draw from these gifts to transform the therapy process. Exploring topics such as mindfulness, self-compassion, values, intuition and personality as well as exercises drawn from music therapy we will weave discussions and group work into portable skills that you can practice, week to week, as you go through the process. We look forward to meeting and working with you!

Why consider consulting a psychologist

As humans, we can no more see ourselves objectively than see our own eye lashes.

We are built to see life subjectively – from our own point of view. This makes sense, of course, since we’re constantly trying to figure out how to maneuver through our lives to fit with our own perspective and surroundings. But our subjectivity may not be helpful when we are trying to figure out repetitive patterns that keep inhibiting us from being truly happy. For most people, these patterns are often related to:

Relationships, health, work, lifestyle, habits (healthy and unhealthy), love, spirituality, sexuality and gender exploration and issues. This is not an exhaustive list. There are many more challenges that human beings can deal with over the course of their lives and that can cause them pain.   

In each of these instances psychotherapy can help supply a much needed  “bigger picture” surrounding your personal challenge.  A psychologist can act as a mirror within which you will be able to identify the whys and hows of your challenges and, ultimately, the way through them.
