FLOW

PAST

In order to understand our challenges, we must recognize our patterns, triggers, and internalizations. By looking into our past experiences including early childhood experiences, relational patterns, culture, and adverse experiences, we can begin to determine the root source of our behaviours, thoughts, and emotions. The flow of therapy will begin at discussing the past with the intention of learning how we have come to be. 

PRESENT

A clients often starts therapy for one of two reasons. The first is that there is the time/space (financial or an internal/external push) to begin the therapeutic process. The second is when something is currently occurring in the clients world that requires  immediate attention.  The counselling space provides a space to discuss, explore, and resolve current and immediate stressors (as well as past and future stressors after immediacy has subsided). 

FUTURE

Without a desired future, there would be no need to progress, heal, and grow. The counselling space provides an opportunity to develop a clear illustration of what to strive for and arrive there together. The development of goals, values, and action plans are created and supported, while being held accountable by the therapeutic space.
