Our Specialties

We are trained in many talk-therapy treatments to address a wide range of client challenges.

Trauma

Trauma is often misunderstood. It’s not just catastrophic events such as violence or abuse. Trauma can be any painful experience that has had a sustained effect on your well-being. And yet so many therapies target only its symptoms. At Rising Tides, we unpack your trauma. We get to the root of your pain and give you support to manage better.

Facing Change

Change is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Often, the hardest part is just knowing where to start. The right kind of support can mean the difference between getting started or staying stuck. We’ll teach you to manage the challenges of change.

Feeling Stuck

Do you feel overwhelmed by daily life? Is your mood having a negative impact on your relationships or ability to focus? Although it’s normal to experience a variety of emotions, if you feel stuck in your thinking, it may be time for help. In counselling, you will learn to recognize how thoughts can impact mood and behaviour. You will learn new strategies to help you cope with these emotions and feel more confident in your ability to take control of your life.

Overworked, Overwhelmed.

No wonder so many of us are burnt out. Contemporary life sometimes seems custom-designed to grind us down. Our clients are often drowning in anxiety, stressed to the max, unsatisfied in their relationships and hardly sleeping. Sound familiar? If you’re struggling, it’s not because there’s a flaw in you – it’s because things are hard. We can help.

Self-Esteem

What you believe about yourself affects all aspects of your life, from personal relationships to professional presence. Yet so many of us struggle to know – never mind accept and love – our true selves. We help guide you to greater self-awareness. We’ll challenge limiting beliefs, explore more adaptive thinking and practice self-care. After all, it’s not selfish to love and care for yourself.
