This imperfect moment is the entryway into everything you may want. However, when in the midst of a difficult moment people don't often remember the potential it may hold for healing and fulfillment. Counselling with Paula is an invitation to deepen your practice of wholehearted engagement with the life you have, since that is the best way to have the life you want. Therapy can guide you to mindfully and compassionately practice the skillful means necessary for releasing habits that perpetuate dis-ease and discontent in order to transform difficult experiences into opportunities for creativity, healing, wisdom and fulfillment.
Mental health is not just the absence of illness; it is also the presence of wellbeing. In order to reduce undesirable symptoms while increasing the presence of desirable states of being, Paula utilizes: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Yoga movement.
Paula's approach to counselling is integrative, experiential, compassionate and mindful. Counselling is about balancing both acceptance (of where you're at) with (the desire for) change since both are needed for personal transformation.
