Theresa Gulliver, Registered Therapeutic Counsllor

"We cannot solve our problems using the same level of thinking that created them. We must try something different.' Einstein
 
My counselling work is experiential, therapeutic and educational. This means, over time, I will invite you to reveal thoughts, feelings or experiences that you might not be used to sharing. This occurs slowly and you set the pace. I offer unwaivering support as you safely navigate your current life challenges.
With new tools and strategies, our time together lays the foundation for an exciting life of self discovery and actualization.
 
In your initial appointment we will get to know one another. I will ask you to check in with how you are feeling and what brought you to counselling at this time. I may ask some of your family history to get a better understanding of your life and circumstances. We will explore what has and hasn't worked in order to start to collaboratively create solutions you can to implement in your life.
 
I highly recommend follow up sessions. The number and frequency varies per client and we can discuss a plan that feels right for you.
Follow up appointments are unique and variable just like you. Generally, we will start with checking in on how you are feeling. We will discuss where we left off and any other top of mind challenges. Over time, I will continue inquiring about your family history to better understand your life and circumstances. We will continue to explore practical solutions you can implement in your life.

We may explore creative exercises together that are designed to help you have a new experience and offer a new way of dealing with the current challenge. These help increase your level of self understanding and awareness so you can get clear on where your power lies to make changes in your life. With new tools and strategies, our time together lays the foundation for an exciting life of self discovery and actualization.
