Counselling & Psychotherapy Services
Welcome... how may I help you?
Dorion Dellabough, M.Ed. / Registered Clinical Counsellor
Consider such issues as trauma, personal growth, parenting, enhancing committed relationships, altering or ending destructive ones, grief, understanding emotions, behaviour change, spirituality, and so on. What do each of these concerns have in common? Some form of RELATIONSHIP or breach in relationship - to oneself, to others, or to a greater cause.
I believe that it is in the context of relationship that we uncover our past, realize present blind spots, and explore future possibilities. Therapy can serve many purposes. It can be an opportunity to increase knowledge or skills, expose thinking errors, provide accountability for decisions, seek support when we are overwhelmed, tend to difficult emotions, realize and integrate new perspectives, and heal what hurts. Usually we're trying to make sense of something, but we're stuck! That can change.
I look forward to meeting you.
My therapeutic approach is practical and is influenced by your present needs and abilities. I draw from various psychological theories such as: Jungian Psychology, Somatic Transformation, Hakomi, attachment theory, developmental psychology, person centred psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and current neuroscience research.
To enter into a genuine relationship with you - to connect, to listen, to understand you as best I can, to support your strengths, and in a respectful manner challenge unhealthy patterns whether they are behaviours, emotions or thoughts. I will do so with kindness and in a space where you feel safe, not judged. I cannot erase your burdens, but I can help you identify them more clearly, face them, and release their hold on your life.
My husband and I have been so lucky to have found Dorion. His knowledge, compassion, warmth, support and nonjudgmental attitude has helped us in many different ways. He has been a very important figure for us and continues to be. We trust him and we would recommend Dorion to anyone who is seeking someone who can help with their inner growth.
I suffered from serious trauma for a very long time and I was tired of "managing" my anger, my depression, and my anxiety! Dorion helped me connect with parts of myself I wasn't even aware of, and now I'm not so scared of my emotions. I know I have more work ahead of me, but I really feel safe with the way he works.
