One-on-one counselling is a time set aside for yourself where you are invited to share your story without hesitation, fear or apprehensions. Together, we will face some of the challenges that are keeping you from feeling your best and work on overcoming them one at a time. We will explore the roots of your concerns and remove barriers that may be contributing to your distress. You will be supported in identifying where you are stuck, and work through the difficult emotions that may have been holding you back from being the best version of yourself.
Individual counselling looks different for everyone, as nobody else is like you or experiences things the same way you do. At Aura Counselling, we value your individual experience and are here to listen to your story, make you feel understood and to help you learn to accept and understand your unique emotional experience. This awareness is the first step toward healing and growing. In the end, the goal is for you to radiate joy and shine from the inside out, as you feel lighter from letting go of the emotional burden that has been weighing you down. You are deserving and worthy to live a happy life.

Being in a relationship is like a dance- when partners are in sync, the dance appears effortless, fluent and natural; this occurs when partners are connected, trusting of one another and can read the emotional cues and signals from their partners. On the other hand, when couples are missing and misreading cues, they may be ‘stepping on each others toes’, disrupting the natural flow of the dance.
Oftentimes, couples are fixated on surface level incidents that keep them stuck in an asynchronous dance, but the root of the problem is hidden a bit deeper. Couples who are stuck no longer see each other as their emotional safe haven, and the relationship becomes distressed. Those surface level arguments are often demands for connection, intimacy and desperate efforts to seek emotional safety. Through exploration of your family of origin and attachment style, we can discover and learn about your partner’s needs and how to become experts on each other. As a Level 1 certified PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) therapist, I rely on the application of research in neuroscience and attachment theory to improve interactions between couples. This approach aims to help couples notice their reactions as they occur and learn how to better address one another's attachment needs.
