Counsellor/Therapist Profile – Psychology Today

Your therapy journey is about you and your growth. My role is to help you discover and explore unique strengths you already possess, empowering you to navigate through life’s challenges, stresses, and storms, as I help you recognize and build upon your strengths.

Whether you need help in making a life-changing decision, coping with intolerable anxiety, managing a difficult relationship, or resolving lifelong or chronic struggles, my solution-focused framework will help provide you with a compass to navigate any terrain.

We will work together, weaving in hope-filled strategies that build self-esteem and security within you. My integrated approach is client-centred, strengths-based, collaborative, and transformational, within an environment that is safe, accepting, compassionate, empathic, and encouraging.

Enhancing awareness of your mind-body connection, you will better recognize and respond to your needs. I also offer the option of incorporating spiritual/Christian components.

As each life stage comes with its own points of struggle, I will walk alongside you, tailoring therapy to meet your specific needs and style, working at your desired pace.

You can achieve greater peace, grounding, and a sense of direction and empowerment. Therapy can be brief, or enduring, according to your needs and preferences.

Finding Peace in Any Storm

I have found a pathway to a deep and lasting peace that I believe is fully achievable by anyone who truly wants a way out of the pain of a mind in turmoil.

I have experienced, through my own life and/or through family members and friends, harrowing times of major depression, anxiety, panic attacks, ADD, Tourette Syndrome, Bi-Polar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Dyslexia, life crises, and so on. Having attended myriad conferences, seminars and personal counseling sessions featuring renowned psychologists, psychiatrists and other professionals in the field of mental illness and mental wellness, I chose to delve deeply into the business of finding a greater sense of peace amidst the storms of life. I have a B.A. in Psychology, and am currently in the final stages of a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, as a student practitioner.

In my compassion for the mental and emotional sufferings of others, I have shared my resources with anyone longing to be filled. If there is some small way in which you or someone you know and care about is helped by anything here, then I’ve received a significant and fulfilling reward for all my efforts.

Yours in kindness,

Karen Wilson
