Let Us Work Together
Life can be tough, but you don't have to face it alone. At Turning Point Therapy, we are committed to providing you with a comfortable space and personalized approach, where our experienced therapists will guide you to greater self-awareness and resilience.
We understand how difficult it can be to reach out and choose a counsellor. It is common to feel uncomfortable talking about yourself or to feel afraid that you are going to be taken over by painful feelings. This is often why we put it off until things get desperate or at a crisis point. You may have noticed that avoidance doesn't change the pain and unhappiness you have been carrying. You can distract for a while but one way or another those things you have been working hard to not think about find their way back.
With a compassionate and skilled therapist by your side, you can gain valuable insights and develop a relationship to yourself of acceptance and compassion. Experience tells us that once you make that call there can be a sense of relief knowing you are on the way to making a change and a journey of self discovery.
Turning Point Therapy has a team of experienced therapists and interns who are passionate about their practice and what therapy has to offer. We all know firsthand the value of the therapeutic relationship through our own work. In addition, we continue to study and maintain ongoing training in order to provide you with the best service possible.
We practice therapy that includes the following principles and practices.
Counselling provides a path to your authentic self
Individual (Trauma) Counselling
Contrary to what you might hear therapy doesn't have a time limit. Not because we want you to stay in therapy for the rest of your life but rather because humans don't work like that. We are all unique individuals with our own struggles, speed, and a multitude of factors that influence how we process things and heal the pain we are carrying.
Therapy is a relationship within which you can find what matters to you, find your energy for life, and connect to your authentic self.
Please explore the information on the website about some of the issues we work with to help you choose your counsellor. We are also open to questions and inquiries.
We honour the many ways to love and be in a relationship, including and not limited to;
- Heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bi-, queer, and questioning,
- Cis, non-binary, trans-gendered, or gender nonconforming
- Monogamous, polyamorous,
- Married, unmarried, with children, and without
Low Cost Counselling
Our intern counsellors are trained in basic counselling skills offering you an empathic space to listen to you, connect with your experience, and provide guidance in connecting with your emotions, thoughts, and behaviour. They come from diverse backgrounds but usually do not have specific in-depth training yet in any particular approach but may have an interest in the kinds of approaches their supervisor (Delyse Ledgard) practices. They receive close supervision and training as they finish their training with us.
They can provide a counselling relationship to offer support around many struggles including relationships, anxiety, depression, stress, and childhood trauma. Some of our interns also provide couples counselling.
