Amanda Morazain – M.A Counselling Psychology, BA Psychology
Play Therapy Counsellor, Youth Counsellor, Adults, Couples, Seniors
I love working with kids and offer them mental health support in a fun, friendly, and compassionate space. I use play therapy to help children express and process their thoughts, feelings, and experiences while guiding them in building coping skills and emotional regulation.
Children are not always able to find the words to express challenges they are facing or how they are feeling. Play therapy creates a safe, stress-free environment to learn new problem-solving skills, practice empathy, build self-esteem and respect for others, while building language and communication skills. It gives children the chance to share and speak with a trusted adult who can objectively help them figure out their day-to-day.
Work with youth and young adults can include helping them deal with issues and empowering them to find solutions. Our space is open, relaxed, and non-judgmental. It is a place to build self-confidence while learning how to deal with peer pressure, fitting in, relationships, and daily struggles. Many youth and young adults come to counselling to become more resilient, learning how to express their emotions in a healthy way, while they navigate through what can sometimes be tumultuous times. They are looking for guidance in helping them find their passion and purpose in life, wanting help setting goals. I am here to support them.
I counsel adults individually and in couples therapy, where the goal is to create more intimacy and a deeper connection and understanding of one another. Many of us feel stuck in our daily lives, not knowing exactly how to get the progress that we want. Depression, anxiety, and trauma can hold us back from where we deserve to be and can negatively affect our well-being and relationships. I approach counselling from an integrative, case-specific approach, finding what works best for each person.
If you feel that I would be a good fit for you, I would love to be a part of your journey!
