What is Social Work Counseling?

Social Work counseling is a collaborative process where clients are supported through various life circumstances that may be causing them stress, worry, discomfort, or fear. Counseling therefore provides clients with a safe and empathetic space to help develop an increased awareness to the coping mechanisms that are no longer serving you, while offering new more manageable means of addressing difficult life circumstances. Clients can explore their understanding of personal life experiences without judgement, which can assist them in achieving a new outlook and insight into themselves and others. No matter what the severity or issue at hand, counseling can be a resource and a support to draw on at any time. Christina’s approach is guided through a range of therapeutic frameworks from her training in Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques, to her educational background in Mindfulness – Based Practice and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, to which she draws on in order to tailor services specifically to you and your goals. Social Work counseling can address a range of concerns including;

  • Anxiety

  • Grief and Loss
  • Emotional Eating
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationships and Families
  • Addictions
