How Can I Brighten Up Your Day ?

People in talk therapy explore their moods and behaviors in a safe place. A mental health professional may provide a fresh perspective on an issue. They can give people a better understanding of their own emotions. Therapists can also teach communication skills to convey those emotions. Therapy can promote one’s self-esteem, relationships, and outlook on life.

About Lobone

Treatment can help individuals with these symptoms. Psychotherapy treatment for depression relies on trust and emotional support. An effective therapist provides people a comfortable, private setting to heal. Together, they examine the causes and potential solutions to their concerns. Therapists help depressed individuals build new ways of thinking and reacting. Therapy can allow people to return to the loved ones and activities that they care about most.

My Approach

There are many approaches to psychotherapy and I have had experience applying various theories such as Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy.  I use a theory of psychotherapy as a roadmap to guide me through the process of understanding clients and their problems so as to develop goals for therapy.  My main approach is Family Systems Theory which views an individual or group as its own ecosystem with many moving parts that affect each other. A system is characterized by a group of parts that interact to form a coherent whole.  Changes in one component of a system will affect other components as well as the overall entity.  In family systems therapy, familial relationships, patterns, communication, and behaviours are examined within and beyond the therapy session, allowing the therapist and other family members to observe how certain behaviours could be impacting the family. Systems theory is not only applied to individuals, couples, and families, but also to organizations, communities, or businesses to help groups gain insight into how each member’s role within a group may affect its functionality.

How can I help you?

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy entails one-on-one sessions between a therapist and the client. It does not necessarily need to take place in times of crisis or distress but can also assist an individual in personal growth and development.
My professional interests include, but are not limited to: Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Disorders of addiction (alcohol/drugs), Adjustment, Bereavement, and Trauma.

Family Therapy

Family therapy involves sessions with the therapist and various family members (depending on each family’s unique composition).
Family therapy helps the family deal with issues experienced by the family such as conflicts, illness within the family, and identifying patterns of interaction among family members that perpetuate problems.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy involves joint sessions with the therapist and the couple. The length of a session is usually 60 minutes. Couples therapy aims to address the unique stressors and conflicts that are being experienced by the couple.
It assists in improving communication, exploring patterns that may be problematic, and enhancing the strengths within the couple system.

Group Therapy

Group therapy can be an effective treatment choice for drug addiction, depression, bereavement, and traumatic stress. It helps you realise you are not alone, facilitates giving and receiving support, helps you find your voice, helps you relate to others (and yourself) in healthier ways, and provides a safety net.

Transformational Speaking
