IN-OFFICE COUNSELLING SESSION ($120/55 Minutes)
At some point in our lives, we can all use a little help. Maybe it’s to increase our self awareness, work on some self improvement, or support in managing and overcoming one of life’s hurdles. Counselling will help you identify and address factors that are stopping you from living the life you want and making the changes you want to see. Sometimes, unconscious behaviours and unsuccessful life patterns interfere with our fulfillment and happiness in life.
Welcoming clients who experience emotional distress due to:
Support through life changes and decision making
Empowerment and motivation
Personal growth is a goal set by most people; unfortunately not everyone does or can, invest this time in themselves. If you are ready to take this step, we look forward to working with you.
VIRTUAL COUNSELLING SESSION ($120/55 Minutes)
With the expansion of modern technologies, an increasing number of people have been seeing the benefits of online counselling. Some of the evident benefits of virtual counselling for many people include the convenience, the range of choices and services provided, and the cost of the services.
Seeking help requires strength and courage. Many people feel more comfortable opening up during the online counseling session than in a face-to-face contact with a therapist.
Online counselling today provides a number of holistic healing options. Through a client-therapist relationship built on empathy, integrity and a positive connection, online counselling can help clients overcome a number of concerns.
Due to the current risk of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, we encourage all clients who are sick, or experiencing symptoms such as fever, trouble breathing, coughing to call your therapist directly to reschedule your appointment or discuss options for virtual or telephone sessions.
Benefits of virtual/over the phone counselling:
WALK AND TALK THERAPY ($120/55 Minutes)
Mindfulness-based Walk and Talk Therapy provides a unique opportunity to combine the healing forces of nature, physical activity, and psychotherapy all into one!
You and your therapist walk together while conversing. There are many therapeutic advantages to this type of therapy.
The rhythmic nature of walking provides a soothing, predictable, and comforting context.
The motor cortex becomes activated with the movement of your legs and arms – this stimulation provides communication between your brain hemispheres, which acts on a neurological level to assist in the processing of trauma. This activation is similar to the rapid eye movement in sleep in which, it is believed, is greatly involved in the processing of emotional and cognitive content.
Anxiety and stress activate the sympathetic nervous system – your fight and flight response. Walking and movement help to decrease the sympathetic nervous system response, essentially decreasing stress on a physical level.
COUPLES THERAPY ($150/90 Minutes)
Cultivating fulfilling relationships is an integral part of our work at Upliftu. Couples Counselling includes any form of relationship counselling, including marriage counselling, premarital counselling, and counselling for partners who are dating or living together.
We provide couples therapy to people who are feeling stuck and discouraged in their relationships. They are looking for ways to save their relationship and create more fulfillment and deeper intimacy.
