Focus

  • Client Centered

  • Heart Focused

  • Human Oriented

  • Self-Directed

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.

Process

Client Centered
Humanistic Counselling

 

My Counselling Style 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. In this process the client is guided towards their our outcome and their own determination of the solution to whatever is facing them.
 
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. The well equipped Awaken Studio is also the home for the body centered practices that I lead at times when I am not with counselling clients. The Awaken Studo is also home to the many groups, classes and workshops that are offered by Phillip, a variety of Yoga teachers, Tantra teachers and wholistic sexual embodiment practitioners.

 

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

It is my honour and my pleasure to hold space for clients as they blossom and become more true themselves and the paths that they are following.

FREE YOURSELF to BE YOURSELF

The counselling process can create a greater sense of self esteem, peace, empowerment and hope.

The process can lighten the burdens of guilt and shame and allow for clarity of purpose and intent.

Beginning

 

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

 

Many men feel obliged and a sense of duty to present in the world in a particular way. The  counselling process can help to lighten the burden, the guilt and sometimes shame of this onerous sense of obligation.

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.

Holding the container for men to be more themselves, to be more truthful and whole within themselves is a deep and resonant honour for me. I am happy and very proud to have been of service and providing this service, of holding space, since 2001.

How may I be of service to you?

Please know that the Counselling Path always begins with a complementary 30 minute telephone Introductory session, after this Introduction we will move to an Intake session where we will map out a course for our work together and finally we will move towards a full 90 minute session. 

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing 

there is a field.

I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass the world is

too full to talk about.”

~ Rumi
