This group will be led by Hanna Peterson (left) who is a graduate counsellor and Leifennie Ang (right) who is an intern counsellor.
Hanna: "You may wish to work with me if you are looking for an accepting and open space for self-awareness, talking about relationships, sex, identity, work, self-esteem, or just feeling stuck. I am motivated to make our counselling sessions empowering for you, supporting the changes that you want to make in life. My work often focuses on values, self-acceptance, and client-directed action.
My counselling style fundamentally incorporates a person-centered social justice lens. My clients' perspectives, cultures and values are prioritized throughout our counselling relationship. I use an integrative therapeutic approach to adapt a variety of theoretical orientations and interventions to best suit my clients needs. The theories I draw from the most include ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), narrative therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). An integrative approach allows me to work collaboratively with my clients to co-construct therapy that works for your needs."
Leifennie: "I strive to embody a compassionate, supportive, curious, non-judgmental, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed loving presence in order to co-create a safe container for our work together. I believe we are all interconnected with everything and everyone. We are born in relationship, live in relationship, suffer in relationship, and are transformed in relationship. My intention is to facilitate you to develop the awareness and capacity to be intentional and consistent in making the series of choices to cultivate a loving and compassionate relationship with yourself and others.
My approaches focus on honouring the different parts of you, increasing your capacity to hold space for the myriad of feelings, emotions, and sensations that might be conflicting at times, and equipping you with the skills to feel anchored in your own capability and self-lead while you navigate the uncertainties of life. To achieve this, I incorporate mindfulness and somatic therapy into the sessions. I also integrate and draw from various therapeutic modalities such as Internal Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy."
