Get to Know Carly

What drives me to do this work? 
I know that it takes courage to reach out for help – therefore, creating a trusting and safe working alliance with my clients is of utmost importance. I value the unique life experiences and personal perspectives my clients bring to therapy, and it is an honour to create a space where my clients feel seen, heard and understood. Helping clients develop resilience skills, increase clarity and establish meaningful goals is incredibly rewarding. I bring a broad range of modalities to my work, ranging from traditional counselling to expressive and somatic processing, but always strive to meet each individual in a flexible way.

What can my clients expect from working with me?
During periods of transition and stress, we often struggle and feel overwhelmed. I take the stance of a guide and compassionate witness for those wanting to cultivate new perspectives, develop coping skills and overcome internal barriers to wellbeing. I believe that we all have deep inner wisdom and a storehouse of strengths that can be uncovered and built upon. By facilitating a slowing down and internal attunement, I help my clients to stay open to their experience and connect with new insights, skills and possibilities. Beyond working with individuals, I also offer workshops and grief support groups online.

What led me into counselling?
I have always been inspired by individuals who are positively transformed by challenging circumstances and difficulties. As a result of my own personal experiences, I have been driven to learn about various aspects of mental and emotional wellness. Years of study, exploration and practice have shown me the strength of the human spirit and our inherent drive to grow beyond current limitations. I have worked with people of all ages for over 15 years and in various settings. I am grateful to be able to walk alongside clients as they move through a range of issues and into greater equanimity, strength and inner peace.

Who am I?
From a young age, I have enjoyed the creative arts, being involved in sports and avidly listening to the hard-earned wisdom of others. I have personally experienced the way in which the creative arts, storytelling and meaningful communication can enrich, empower and transform lives. Being surrounded by the beauty of nature has always been important to me so I make a point of hiking and gardening whenever I can. I also consider myself a lifelong learner and love spending time immersed in a book or a captivating conversation.
