Counselling Approach

 

Brandi works with clients to explore their core beliefs and values.  Through the journey of life, our experiences shape how we think and behave.  Often we need to explore the nature of these processes through psychodynamic theory.  Interventions such as narrative therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and dialectic theory can be helpful for clients to make sense of their past and present experiences and find new ways of coping with stress and anxiety, while building confidence and self-efficacy.
