How do you believe counselling can help?

All individuals, young and old, possess the strengths required to make the changes necessary for healing. Before deciding to seek therapy, individuals have usually turned the problem over and over within their thoughts. Counselling can help put words to those thoughts, promote a better understanding of how our thoughts impact our emotions, and build new more helpful meanings.

Your approach to counselling:

My invaluable life experiences and work with First Nation youth and their families have fostered a “holistic” approach to helping. This suggests that the presenting problem not be the focus of counselling, but rather view the whole person; how the problem may be affecting all aspects of an individual’s emotional, spiritual, mental and physical well-being.

“We are happiest when we discover that what we should be doing and what we are doing are the same things. You will never be what you ought to be until you are doing what you ought to be doing”.
- John L. Mason

How do you believe counselling can help?

Counselling can be an experience through which individuals or groups learn more about themselves, get help to gain an understanding of specific conditions, and acquire skills. It supports individuals to understand treatment options that best fit their expectations, empowering people with a higher self-esteem and confidence in their ability to deliver on a day to day expectation. The goal would be to achieve improved problem-solving skills and the ability to better manage emotional experiences. Attaining this state can only be made possible through unconditional acceptance and a non-judgmental therapeutic environment.

Approach to Counselling:

Adejare believes in an integrative approach to essential theoretical fundamental perspectives in psychology, the importance of history, and the client’s current driving goals. Adejare considers the importance and roles of biopsychosocial influences, spiritual interactions, the power of intuition, and community connections to obtain needed healing. Very often, people are unaware of their untapped potentials and counsellors working along with such individuals can lead to a discovery of self-inherent abilities that quickly help achieve the needed adjustment to sustain steady growth.

Inspirational Quote:

“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” - T.S. Eliot

How do you believe counselling can help?

It is my belief that counselling is there to draw out the strengths in each individual. When an individual comes for counselling it is the intent of the counsellor to bring out that which has always been there. As to how this happens, it is my belief that a counsellor is there to help each client see the world in a different way and to tap into themselves for change. In each session clients learn more about themselves and how they view the world. This knowledge then fuels the change they want to see in their lives. Together, in a cooperative manner, I hope to work with all my clients to make these meaningful and personable changes to their lives

Your approach to counselling:

My ideas regarding counselling places the emphasis on the individual which has pushed me towards a more eclectic approach.  Drawing from CBT, Mindfulness, and Narrative based therapies I aim to largely address the thoughts clients have and the stories they tell about themselves and how these play into a clients day to day life. Through these reflections we find areas for growth and move forward at a pace that is comfortable for them in a supportive and nonjudgmental space.

Inspirational Quote:

"Owning our story… 

is the bravest thing we’ll ever do." - Brene Brown

How do you believe counselling can help?

Clients come to counselling and present snap shots of themselves and their life. These snapshots can be blurry or clear, taken at the best moments, or at the worst moments. As a counsellor I am the interpreter of these snapshots that the client presents, helping the client to better understand the blurry and fuzzy snap shots and the emotions attached. As a counsellor I use these snap shots to infer the client’s story and guide the client to better understand and process their story. I utilize the client’s strengths within to facilitate change, and self growth to propel the client forward on their new self- fulfilling path.

Your approach to counselling:

The counselling process can be scary, nerve-racking and overwhelming. I take this into account with each Client I meet. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for each individual to share their story. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is the most important factor in the counselling process. I bring an authentic, genuine and charismatic approach to each counselling session. I understand counselling can be full of pain, fear and sadness but I believe in the importance of having fun, facilitating happiness and highlighting each Client’s strengths. My therapeutic approach is integrative to best suite each client’s needs. I pull from emotion-focused therapy, CBT, DBT, exposure therapy and strength based approaches.

Inspirational Quote:

“If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.” - Kevin Ngo

How do you believe counselling can help?

​Counselling can help you gain a better understanding of​ how your current thoughts, emotions, behaviors, past experiences, and anxieties about the future may be preventing you from living a healthy well-balanced life.

Dawn believes that counselling is a time for you. A safe space to explore what lights you up, what keeps you awake at night, and what you would like to see different in your life. It may create awareness of what isn’t working for you, and why,  and provide new perspectives to create the change that you are looking for. You are the expert on your life, and you will come to counselling with an important history that has shaped who you are. Together we will explore your history to gain a better understanding of you and determine what strategies will best suit your unique needs.

Your approach to counselling:

Dawn offers a solution focused brief therapy approach which may​ allow for positive outcomes in a timely manner. However, some issues require more extensive personal exploration where an integrative approach and longer-term therapy is required, and she is pleased to offer those services as well. In utilizing a client centered and trauma informed style of counselling psychology, she will help you explore areas that are preventing you from living your best life. She will support and guide you to make decisions in a non-judgmental, supportive, confidential, and caring space. Dawn offers a down to earth and professional approach to counselling from a place of compassion and life experience.

As a member of the College of Alberta Psychologists, she adheres to a strict code of ethics and incorporates evidence-based research into practice.
