Hello and welcome to Michael Doris Counselling Services! I am a Registered Social Worker providing private and professional, mental health counselling/psychotherapy, in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
Is Counselling For Me?
The decision to try counselling or to re-enter it, can be a difficult choice to make. I strongly believe that all people have inner strengths and resilience to overcome life's many challenges such as stress, anxiety, sadness, grief and loss, misuse of substances, traumatic experiences. However, if you are unable to weather these storms, or maybe they are too frequent, when you feel uncertain as to which path to move forward on, counselling/therapy can be a very helpful method to get back on track. It is to support and enhance your coping, building momentum as you progress forward in achieving your goals.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about coming into counselling
A little about myself, I have worked in the mental health and addiction field since 2011 and have been providing professional, mental health counselling since 2013 after completing my Masters of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Toronto. Registered with the Ontario College of Social Work and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and a certified Clinical Traumatologist (TITC-CT) and Compassion Fatigue Specialist from the Traumatology Institute in Toronto.
My counselling style is grounded in a safe, non-judgmental focus, that helps clients get to the bottom of their concerns. I take a strengths-based approach, even though a person is coming into counselling with a concern, it is vitally important to explore and honor their own innate resilience and strengths.
