LORI'S COUNSELLING APPROACH

 

As a dedicated psychotherapist, for the last 20 years, empowerment and acceptance are foundational values for my work.  Your vulnerable and brave step towards change comes with your unique narrative, influenced by our biology, how we are nurtured in childhood and the relationship experiences we have.  Therapy gives space for this exploration and reflection.  I feel privileged and honoured to help guide that deeper questioning that will lead you to your innate insight and transformation.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is a powerful, life-changing and efficient therapy method that I provide in my practice, as a trained practitioner since 2009.  It is deemed by the WHO (World Health Organization) as the recommended therapy for post traumatic stress.  EMDR  also addresses, but is not limited to: performance anxiety and or enhancement, self-defeating beliefs, behavioural inhibition, generalized anxiety, grief, depression and psychological recovery from injury.   I also interweave IMAGO techniques  (will be fully trained in the summer of 2021), a specific style of relationship therapy designed to help conflict within relationships become opportunities for healing and growth.  Additionally, I utilize CBT, DBT, Structural Dissociation Parts Work and Mindfulness approaches for improved coping and life skills.
