There are stigmas surrounding therapy… 

  • You must be crazy
  • You are incapable of handling the challenges of life
  • You must be weak
  • You must not have supportive friends or family

These are just a few of the beliefs some people still hold. But the truth is much different. We are not designed to go through life alone and figure things out on our own.  So seeking help to explore and face life’s challenges is actually a very brave and wise thing to do.

 At Refresh Counselling, you’ll find a safe, caring, and supportive environment to process feelings, fears, traumas, and obstacles.  You will also gain clarity, insight, and build up skills and strategies to help you break through limitations and find more resilience and hope!

Beside You On Your Journey

The circumstances that may prompt a person to seek the support offered by therapy are unique. So too is each person’s journey through the process. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to get better and move on. Our team of psychologists is committed to meeting you where you are at and guiding you with thoughtful insight and skill to where you hope to go. The path to healing and wellness may be different for everyone but there are some common touchstones that you can expect:

  • Exploring and processing feelings, needs, losses, traumas
  • Gaining self-awareness and perspectives
  • Learning new skills-- overcoming challenges and moving towards multiple aspects of health and well-being

Some common concerns that can be explored with Individual Counselling are:
 

  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Body Image
  • Boundaries
  • Cancer
  • Cultural Issues
  • Decision-Making
  • Depression
  • Eating Issues
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Family of Origin Issues
  • Fear
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Grief & Loss
  • Parenting Issues
  • Perfectionism
  • Phobias
  • Relationships
  • Self-Care
  • Self-Development
  • Self-Esteem
  • Sleep Problems
  • Spirituality
  • Stress Management
  • Suicide
  • Trauma
  • Work & Career
 

These are just some of the difficulties that patients may choose to work through. And often there may be several interconnected obstacles to recognize and evaluate. Your counsellor can help you understand your challenges more deeply; explore and process important feelings, values, and beliefs; and identify some missing pieces that might be important in finding joy, peace, resolution, and healing.  Start feeling better and more grounded today!

Individual Counselling FAQs

We offer you a complimentary consultation (a 20-minute session).  This provides the opportunity to meet your therapist, ask any questions, understand what future sessions will be like, and ensure that you feel safe and a connection with your psychologist.  This also gives us a chance to get to know you a bit and prepare for our next session.

Not at all. Everyone needs help sometimes. You may have had some skills or strengths that you’ve used to deal with challenges before, but for whatever reason, those aren’t working right now. Perhaps what you are dealing with right now feels overwhelming and you are unable to access your past strengths. Through your relationship with your counsellor and the process of therapy, you can explore the challenges you are facing and find your inner strength or develop new skills and strategies to find healing.
