What happens in therapy?

It is not an easy decision to come to therapy.  Elizabeth is known for being warm and relaxed and genuinely curious. Her ability to provide a safe, reflective space allows you to get on with the business of telling your story.

Elizabeth works collaboratively to help you manage and identify your concerns. She helps you to be aware of your behaviour patterns as they arise and  teaches you psychologically flexible skills that help you live your daily life.

Whether face-to-face or through telehealth, as your work together progresses, Elizabeth adapts your treatment plan to match your goals.

What can I expect in a first session?

In a first session Elizabeth aims to understand what life is like for you right now and to explore your personal goals for therapy.  She always make sure there is time to formulate a plan and to discuss whether the plan feels helpful for you. 

 

One of Elizabeth's strengths is her ability to weave together psychological techniques with your personal experiences. This creates a space where you can work in ways that are relevant to your unique story.  After all, the joy of humans is that we are all different, and also the same. 

"My experience is that there is no one size fits all. Through the telling of our unique stories we can discover patterns of responding that were once adaptive. Together, we can shine light on these patterns and discover new ways of relating to yourself, to others, and to the world. Ways that are built on the foundation of your own values, what matters to you."
