How Does Therapy Help?

Life's problems can interfere with relationships, overall happiness, home and work life, mental and physical health, and a sense of inner peace. Worrying about problems can keep you awake at night. Problems can overwhelm you to the point of feeling powerless, fearful, distressed, angry, sad, anxious, tense, or helpless. They drain your energy away from the joy in life. When you are overwhelmed it can be difficult to think clearly to figure out what to do to improve your situation on your own. You may be reactive and repeating familiar, yet stuck patterns as you try to cope. It is hard to change familiar patterns even if they are not working for you.

Therapy is a collaborative process that may help you to express yourself. Through expression you can identify, clarify and deconstruct your concerns so you can begin to address issues in your life and sort out where to put your energy. It may assist you to regain a feeling of control, trust your decisions, explore potential solutions to problems, reflect on future possibilities, feel support, feel listened to, realize your own strength and resources, and promote a sense of well-being.

Counselling is not advice giving. It is a process to help you find your own path through problems that are interfering with your life. The therapist is like a guide or coach who helps you find your own answers to move from what is known and familiar toward new possibilities for living your life in a more satisfying way.  The goal is to overcome the fear that holds you back and keeps you caught in problems. You are the expert on your own life, and the therapist is your consultant.

Counselling is most suited to men and women who are:
  • trying to deal with the overwhelming feelings with multiple pressures or challenges in life

  • seeking personal growth, change or improved emotional well-being

  • needing guidance with life transitions, mid-life crises, career changes or loneliness

  • facing difficult decisions or adjustments

  • dealing with issues related to adoption, blended families, single parenting or step parenting

  • desiring bereavement support with grief and loss brought about through death, pregnancy losses of miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, relinquishing a baby for adoption, and other losses such as separation or divorce, disability, loss of fertility, loss of a special relationship or loss of a job

  • adapting to major family change after separation or divorce or family moves

  • dealing with the challenges facing couples or single parents in relationships with partners

  • facing parenting issues infants, young children or teenagers, conflict between parents and teenagers, and contending with the stage of adolescence

  • managing stress of work or other life pressures and demands

  • wanting to improve marital or couple relationships, or family communication within your nuclear, blended or extended family

  • working through issues with your parents, extended family members, siblings or partner's family

  • surviving your illness, health crisis or living with a chronic health condition, a friend's illness or that of a family member such as child, parent or partner

  • care-giving for elderly parents while being a parent to your own children: balancing your needs and the needs of others

  • adjusting to having a baby, child or adolescent with a chronic or life-threatening illness, special needs, a disability or a health condition

  • coping with distress through weight or food issues on the continuum from anorexia, bulimia, or obesity through to eating disturbances, picky or fussy eating

  • living with family members suffering with emotional difficulties such as anxiety, depression, or eating disorders, especially parents who are supporting children, youth or young adults facing anorexia, bulimia or obesity

  • adjusting to adoption reunion or needing support as adoption triad members search for adoptees, birth siblings, or birthparents, or any issues related to birthparent counseling or the adoption triangle


Stepparent Adoption:

Stepparent adoptions in British Columbia require an interview with your child by a registered social worker, if he or she is between ages 7 - 12, to obtain his or her views on the proposed adoption and name change. If your child is age 12 or older, he or she must consent to the adoption or name change. If you live in the Vancouver and Lower Mainland area, then a face to face in home interview including the report.  The cost varies depending on the complexity of the situation and how much time is involved.
