Counselling Explained

Kevin William Grant

My name is Kevin William Grant, I am a Registered Professional Counsellor Candidate (RPC-C) with a Master's in Clinical Psychology. One of my biggest passions in life is being able to support others while they are going through a difficult time. We all experience or have experienced situations in our lives that can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or just stuck. I believe that empathy, empowerment, problem solving, and a listening ear from even one compassionate person can transform a life.

What is Counselling?

Counselling

Counselling is a way to help you with a wide variety of mental health and emotional challenges. Counselling can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so you can function better, increase your feeling of well-being, and begin your recovery journey.

Approach

I apply a variety of counselling approaches and adapt the approach to fit the needs of my clients.

I've found the following counselling approaches to be highly effective, and I apply them while working with clients:

  • Trauma Informed
  • Somatic
  • Client-Centered
  • Narrative
  • Cognitive-Behavioral
  • Soluton-Focused

Counselling Sessions

Counselling sessions are typically 60-minutes in length. Clients share personal feelings and thought in an open and supportive environment.

Counselling can be short-term (a few sessions), helping with immediate issues, or longer-term (months), assisting with long-standing and more complex issues.

Benefits

Counselling can help eliminate or manage troubling symptoms so you can function better, increase your well-being, and recover.

Issues helped by counselling include difficulties in coping with daily life, the impact of trauma, medical illness, or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental health issues such as stress, depression, or anxiety.

Bullying is the intentional use of power by one person over another. Social media and 24/7 connectivity mean bullying looks a little different than it did in the pre-digital era. Cyber-bulling can include cyberstalking, impersonation, doxxing, and more.

Techniques and Elements of an Effective Trauma Counselling Session

Trauma is complex in its impacts, and therefore treatment needs to be complex as well. In a gradual way, we need to strengthen various aspects of a survivor’s well-being: emotional, physical, cognitive, spiritual and social.

Explain to clients that their symptoms are not a sign of weakness, a character flaw, being damaged, or going crazy.
