About Ian

 

Hello! I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) who has recently returned to Ontario after practicing psychotherapy in Alberta for the past five years, counselling hundreds of clients during that time for a major provider of psychotherapy. I am now opening an Ontario based private practice, and I want that practice to be as accessible to as many people as possible, therefore I have set a fee of $100 per session, offering therapy via secure video.

The counselling experience is a journey my client and I embark on together, the journey itself is unique to each client. I usually follow the methodologies of self-psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) according to each client's needs.

Acquiring healthy coping skills is often an important part of psychotherapy. Skills such as assertiveness, cultivating a relaxed mind and body, active listening and knowing what you need and want enable you to 'trust the process’ of working towards positive outcomes in many different circumstances in your life, because the skills you learn are transferrable from one area of life to another.

If you are facing an important life issue that deep down you know you need help coping with, then quite possibly I can help. I don’t direct or advise, that is not a counsellor’s role. I am skilled in reflecting useful insights to help you understand your issue more clearly, which in turn can help you discern and implement a healthy way forward. Perhaps most importantly, I am an impartial listening ear; there is no judgement!

My 'qualifying' status in Ontario means I am qualified to practice in Ontario under supervision (every good therapist has a supervisor anyway) even while my registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) is being completed.
