At Kindred Counselling we believe that choosing to engage in counselling is an act of self-care and movement toward health and wellness.
We have a lot of respect for our clients because we know it takes courage to commit to the counselling process and to do the work required to meet your goals.
Counselling for Adults
We know that starting this process can be intimidating and you may worry about being judged about what you’re going through, or what you've been through, but we have a non-judgmental approach and strive to provide a safe and comfortable space for you.
Kindred Counselling specializes in treating individual adults using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to overcome issues related to trauma. Research shows EMDR as the most effective clinical treatment method to treat PTSD. You may request research articles and we will gladly email them to you.
Trauma can be simply defined as an unexpected and disturbing event that occurs in which you are not equipped to cope with at the time. It could be an experience from a long time ago, on-going experiences, or something that just recently happened.
Sometimes we aren't sure if we are traumatized and down-play our experiences. But basically, if you are currently disturbed or bothered by something that has happened to you and it is currently impacting your life in a negative way, you are experiencing the impacts of trauma- and EMDR can help you.
Tara knows from experience because she has done EMDR multiple time as a client to overcome disturbances related to childhood abuse. She also did EMDR for relatively smaller issues, one for example was related to the shame she carried for getting poor grades in elementary school. So, big or small we can address the issues together and we will keep a safe and grounded space for you. We do not scare easily and you are in good hands with us.
