Counselling Tailored to Your Needs

Our team has worked with people of numerous backgrounds  and demographics. We have extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, panic, and phobias. Additionally, our team has worked with individuals to overcome addictions, strengthen relationships, process grief/loss, and to understand and develop tools to manage emotions, stress, and interpersonal conflicts.

Often times, stereotypes actually prevent us from improving our own lives. For example, the stereotype of women as taking care of household chores or handling the house rather than seeking a career has had a significant role in women attempting to close the gender gap and achieve equality in other sectors of life, as well. You may have some preconceived notions about counselling in Calgary, and we will work to alleviate any concerns that you might have about these stereotypes.

Is anxiety about the future or fear over current events stopping you from leading the life you want to live? Anxiety is something we all experience at times; however, if it causes us to negatively alter how we live, we may need help to control it. If you feel overwhelming, unrealistic worry and tension, it may be time to find strategies and solutions to get you back living the life you want and deserve. Together we can build your confidence and find ways to bring peace to your inner thoughts.

Symptoms of Anxiety

  • Panic, fear, and uneasiness (scared)
  • Sleep problems (trouble sleeping)
  • Not being able to stay calm and still (anxious)
  • Cold, sweaty, numb or tingling hands or feet
  • Shortness of breath (hard to breath)
  • Heart palpitations
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Tense muscles

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to danger. It’s meant to help identify a problem that needs your attention to fix. However, when the stress lasts too long, it can start to impact our physical and mental health. If you are feeling overwhelmed or are having physical symptoms related to stress, make an appointment so we can work together to manage your stress.

Symptoms of STRESS

  • Becoming easily agitated, frustrated, and moody
  • Feeling overwhelmed, like you are losing control or need to take control
  • Having difficulty relaxing and quieting your mind
  • Feeling bad about yourself (low self-esteem), lonely, worthless, and depressed
  • Avoiding others
  • Becoming easily agitated, frustrated, and moody
  • Feeling overwhelmed, like you are losing control or need to take control
  • Having difficulty relaxing and quieting your mind
  • Feeling bad about yourself (low self-esteem), lonely, worthless, and depressed

Depression can be very common but manifest itself in many ways by affecting mood, emotions, and/or behaviour. Despite the weight of depression, it isn’t something you should be embarrassed talking about.  Depression is treatable and worth seeking help to overcome. Life doesn’t have to continue being this hard. If you are experiencing depression, book an appointment, and let’s work together on feeling better.

Common Symptoms of Depression Include:

  • Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions (spacy, forgetful, indecisive)
  • Fatigue (tired, weak)
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness (insignificant, not in control)
  • Pessimism and hopelessness (distrust, melancholy, negative)
  • Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much (trouble sleeping)
  • Irritability (annoyed easily)
  • Restlessness (agitated, impatient)

We have all experienced anger in our lives. It’s a normal and healthy emotion. However, if it gets out of control, or becomes destructive, that’s when issues arise, and it’s time to seek outside help. If you have found that anger is affecting your job, relationships, or quality of life, it’s time to be proactive. Together we will identify problem areas and get you feeling in control of your emotions.

Dependance Can Be a Lonely Experience

If you have found that your dependence on a substance or habit is negatively affecting your life, and the lives around you, it’s time to seek help. Addiction can be a lonely burden to carry. Those around you may have trouble understanding what you are going through which can create separation in relationships and leave you feeling worse. Your Counselling is here to help you feel heard and understood. We will find the right strategies to get you back in control and leading a healthy life.

Family Life Can Be Stressful

Being a part of a family is fulfilling, but it can also be stressful. Arguments and issues can arise unexpectedly in families. While some issues are small and easier to work through for a family, what happens when the problem is too large or overwhelming? Seeking outside counsel can ensure everyone feels heard. Your Counselling is here to help your family get back to feeling fulfilled rather than stressed.

Domestic Violence occurs in different forms

Domestic violence is something that, despite its nature, often goes under the radar and doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves or needs. Domestic violence occurs in different forms, it could either be physical, emotional, psychological, economic, sexual, or a combination and anyone can be a victim regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation. One thing all patterns of domestic violence have in common is that one person tries to gain or assert dominance or power over another using actions or threats with an intention to hurt, scare, force, or embarrass them. It is no surprise that “the counsellor near me” pops up often in Google’s search engine.

At Your counselling, we help you find solutions to the impacts that might have resulted from any form of violence that you might have faced. Did you just ask, where is the counsellor near me? Right here!! We are here for you!!
