What is Psychotherapy? As defined by the CRPO (College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario)
"Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Registered Psychotherapists work with individuals, couples and families in individual and group settings. Psychotherapy occurs when the Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and client enter into a psychotherapeutic relationship where both work together to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they have thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day lives, relationships and the ability to enjoy life."
Brooke's Approach to Psychotherapy
Brooke views psychotherapy as a unique opportunity for clients to get to know themselves on a deeper level. Using an integrative approach, Brooke draws from several modalities as she believes therapy is NOT a one size fits all. Her unique approach places an emphasis on developing a strong, trusting relationship between her and her clients. She strives to offer a warm, empathetic, judgement free zone for her clients to feel heard. She believes that change comes from within, but will guide you every step of the way.
