I have a professional yet informal approach. I use the Person-centred, Psychodynamic, CBT, mindfulness, mind-body relaxation and motivational interviewing models. I use harm reduction with addictions if clients want to cut down or maintain abstinence. I encourage family and group support along with online work. I help clients reduce stress anxiety and depression as well as encourage them to reach their true potential by engaging in their positive passions, talents and abilities. This may also be a separate service from any other issues.
