Talk Counselling for Men

When you want:

improved communication and interpersonal skill

greater self-acceptance and self-esteem

skilled expression & management of emotions:

anger, sadness, fear, peace, power, joy

relief from depression & anxiety 
increased confidence & greater self image



My primary focus as a counsellor is to assist my clients as they: 

  • determine their own wisdom,
  • educate themselves, empower themselves 
  • and have them lead more hopeful,
    • passionate
    • and powerful lives.

Client Centered Counselling - Counselling is based on the agenda and scope of work as determined by the client.  What the client brings forward is what we will work with. In counselling the primary focus is to remove stumbling blocks, rework patterns of behaviour, clear 
emotional blockages and reprogram stories and predetermined outcomes that no longer serve the clients needs.

I spend most of my client time listening and engaging in exploration with the client to find their meaning and have the client find their own answers to their 
questions, problems and concerns.
I offer in person counselling to individuals and couples from my comfortable and private office located in the heart of the Downtown core of the City of Toronto. This well equipped studio also is the home for the body centered practices that I lead at times when I am not with counselling clients . 

The practice that I most appreciate in the counselling 
environment that I provide is listening and allowing for the conversation that takes place within a safe, uplifting and hopeful counselling environment.

The counselling process

can create a greater sense

of self esteem,


and hope.

Body- Mind - Heart - Spirit

The scope of counselling exploration can include many areas, yourself,  your life, your spirit, your desire, your relationships and your problems, and your solutions.  

When one is curious and exploring one can find new ways of responding to the world. New responses build courage and strength. It is important that the counselling client feel comfortable with their counsellor. This, in itself a paradox, because often, there is nothing comfortable about the counselling process. So in fact, you are looking for someone you can feel comfortable with, while in your own discomfort.

You need to know that when you are at your most vulnerable you will also know that you are in a safe place.

I am happy and proud to have been of service and providing this service since 2001.

How may I be of service to you?
