“Gabrielle is a highly skilled and professional counsellor and she manages all areas of her clinical work with integrity, sensitivity and competence. It is rare to find a counsellor that can work with children, families, youth and adults, with so much flexibility in clinical judgement and strength in her skill base”
– H. Dawson MA, RCC, RCAT Vancouver, Canada
Sometimes, just being heard in the safe environment of a therapy session does wonders for reducing pain and isolation.
Add to this a therapeutic conversation that supports: reflection, the return of hope, increased clarity, the practice of self-compassion, and the gaining of a fresh perspective on a problem, and the therapy session has deepened to an even more collaborative and hopeful process.
There’s great potential for healing emotional injuries, releasing unhelpful beliefs and habits, and for finding your confidence and self-agency beyond temporary relief of distress. At an even more active level of collaboration (still gentle and reassuring), therapy offers really effective, even life-changing tools and ideas, customized to the individual and augmented by opportunities to practice and adjust.
