My Approach

My approach to counselling

Mind, Body and Spirit Harmony

What I understand is that everything has a beginning, middle, and end. As human beings, we can feel vulnerable during the transition from one stage of our lives to another, sometimes getting stuck in the process. Life impacts us not only mentally but also physically and spiritually. My approach to counselling highly values a therapeutic approach that combines the wisdom of both Eastern and Western philosophy to bring a sense of harmony into our everyday lives. There are times when simply talking is not enough to heal emotional scars and wounds that reside within our bodies and souls. We may discover solace and nourishment in movement, energy work, meditation, connection with nature, creative endeavours, or various spiritual practices.

Welcoming One’s Entire Self Into Additional Spaces

I strive to create a welcoming environment where everyone feels embraced. While society often prioritizes certain groups, our therapy is focused on individuals who have faced marginalization, oppression, or a sense of being overlooked. We explore the idea of privilege within ourselves and how our different identities intersect. Specifically, we address the effects of various forms of discrimination, including racism, sexism, privilege based on race, heterosexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ageism, ability, body size, and social status.

At Acorn Therapy, the objective is to offer an inclusive space for all and honour your unique experiences of trauma. We aim to empower voices that have been silenced and listen to their stories. We acknowledge the inherent value and dignity of all individuals and understand that causing harm to others often stems from internal pain.

Moving with purpose from merely surviving to flourishing

Early childhood experiences have the potential to evoke fear within us. It is possible to develop the perception that we are unappreciated and overlooked during this phase. Regrettably, these beliefs can hinder us from leading a fulfilling life and establishing healthy, secure, and balanced relationships. Recent research suggests that our brains possess the ability to grow, change, and rewire throughout our lifespan. This kind of growth necessitates ample practice and exposure to new experiences. At Acorn Therapy, our primary aim is to not only help individuals survive but to thrive. To ensure this, our therapists offer personalized mental health treatment that caters to your unique journey. Take the initial step towards a better life with our support today.
