I am an “A” level practitioner of Emotion-focused Couple’s Therapy (EFT) having completed the Couples Therapy Training Program with Les Greenberg at York University and the Ottawa Couples and Family Institute with Sue Johnson and Gail Palmer. I have also completed basic training in Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), under the instruction and supervision of Margaret Nelson. I am a clinical member of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists (OSRP).
On average, a session lasts a full sixty minutes. During our first session I will outline the counselling process and explain any of the legal and administrative things you need to know so you can give your informed consent for treatment. Once you have given your consent, we will begin the assessment process. I will ask why you are here and what you want to accomplish. I will probably also ask you questions about your present situation at your home, work and social life, as well as asking about your family history. Out of this, we will develop a set of goals and an action plan for you, and identify tangible indicators which will tell us when your goals have been achieved.
After that, we will meet on a regular basis, usually once a week or every other week. The length of treatment varies with each individual, according to the severity of the issues which are brought to the process. In general, I tell people that they will know when they can cut back or quit therapy, since they will be feeling better and the issues which brought them to therapy will be, if not resolved, then much more manageable.
If you have any questions, just give me a call, or send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
