No lit candle will ever be overcome by darkness
A spark of hope can grow to be a bright flame
A safe place provides shelter from life's stormwinds
And so the flickering candle of hope burns bright and strong

Individuals Couples Families Groups Help Hope Healing

Curiosity, some courage and maybe a flickering of hope may have led you to this webpage. Welcome, and I hope you may allow your courage, your ‘I want to know’ grow as you peruse this website and maybe reach out to phone 519 890 3137 for an appointment. Through Caringhope Counselling I aim to provide support as you courageously pursue healing for yourself and perhaps your relationships. I, Alison, am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I am also a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist and so use a systemic approach to therapy (considering the role of the family system) in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, self-esteem, and anger. I provide services in a confidential, accessible, professional, safe setting. Flexible hours are available Monday through Thursday. Short term solution focused counselling is available for individuals of all ages, couples and families and may be covered through some Employee Assistance Programs. I, Alison, make use of my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and families. Longer term, psychodynamic therapy may be accessed for individuals and also in a group setting. Additionally, I have training in Somatic Experiencing to aid in deepening the therapeutic experience and moving through trauma recovery. I also use Somatic Experiencing to aid those recovering from alcoholism. A one hour session costs $106.20 plus HST Couples therapy sessions start at one hour and then move to one and a half hours at $159.30 plus HST, by session four. As individual, couple and family needs vary, so the number of sessions is determined by each situation. Hope Alive group counselling encompasses thirty sessions, at $57.52 plus HST per session, of in depth group work augmented by homework. The group sessions usually run two per week for a total of $1725.60 plus HST over a 4 month period. The complicated grieving resulting from childhood abuse and neglect combined with abortion or natural pregnancy loss is addressed via Hope Alive group counselling. Together, we determine the style and length of therapy suited to your needs.
