How Can Counselling Help?

Helping people is my passion!  Learning how to do that is my lifelong pursuit!  In over forty years of practice we have helped restore the lives of thousands of people from every walk of life, dealing with almost every area imaginable.  I am constantly keeping abreast of the latest research.

Whether you show it from the outside or not, everyone becomes overwhelmed sometimes in life. The world we live in today is demanding and fast paced. There are times when you feel like they you have gone off track and lost some of the meaningfulness of your life. At other times, difficult life experiences create a feeling of being stuck and unable move forward or process life events such as grief, trauma and life transitions.

In counselling you will learn to look at life and your concerns in an entirely different way. While friends and family try to provide a sympathetic ear, a trained and experienced therapist uses evidence based techniques to help you move toward solutions to the problems you are struggling with. The term “evidence based” simply means the techniques have been tested according to specific standards and have been found to be effective. In therapy you will learn specific emotional and social skills, which can dramatically help you shift the way you relate to yourself and to others.

Within the confidential, restful and safe space of DRay’s office you can honestly talk about your private thoughts and struggles. DRay is trained to provide you with empathic, honest and non-judgemental perspective as well as specific help regarding the problems you are experiencing.

Studies have found that the relationship between you and your therapist is the key to a successful therapeutic experience. A major 1995 Consumer Reports study concluded that patients benefited substantially from therapy but that the actual techniques used were less important that the connection between you and the therapist. The key to successful therapy is a connected, trusting relationship. Interested in alternative or health & wellness therapies? Information here..

Inner Healing

DRay is aware that some problems, past trauma, pain, depression, anxiety and addiction are sometimes difficult to be fully healed through traditional therapy and alternative methodologies.  He knows that healing can come from the hand of God. The phrase “inner healing” has been used for several decades to refer to the ministry of the God Head to bring deep inner healing.

What Can You Expect?

You are a unique individual created in the image of God and deserving of special care, empathy and respect, no matter what needs bring you to counselling. Seeking help is not a sign of failure or weakness, in fact, it's a sign of self-awareness an acknowledgment that your life isn't going the way you desire it to, and you could use some help to sort it out. Your needs will be viewed as all important and you will receive compassion, sensitivity, and spiritual direction. You will find a safe, caring, sympathetic judgment free and confidential atmosphere to help provide open and honest unburdening and healing. Interested in alternative or health & wellness therapies?
