About Nathalie

Helping clients gain self-awareness and get unstuck is essential to one’s growth and desired outcome. I utilize various strategies and techniques to aid in this counselling process. As I actively listen to my client’s concerns, thoughts, and feelings, a safe and non-judgmental space is created whereby they can freely express themselves. Through empathy, validating their experiences, and reflecting back their emotions and key points, clients feel understood. I use reflective questions that encourage clients to explore their thoughts, emotions, and patterns of behaviour. This helps promote introspection and self-reflection. In sharing with clients the nature of human behaviour, emotions, and common patterns of thinking, it also helps them understand how their thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours may be contributing to their current situation. In addition, while normalizing and validating emotions, patterns and triggers are identified, core beliefs and values are explored, and through some mindfulness, self-reflective exercises and techniques, their sense of self, self-awareness and introspection are further developed.

Goal setting, homework, and practice are equally relevant and reinforce self-awareness. It also encourages new perspectives and supports clients in applying strategies learned in counselling to real-life situations, thereby gradually becoming unstuck in their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. Every client is unique, and the approach is tailored to individual needs, including those of couples and families, to attain the best results.
