ABOUT THERAPY

Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional can help. Through talking about and feeling into what you're going through you may be able to gain the clarity and space that's needed to process the situation. 

I care about your well-being and provide you with the space and support to increase your self awareness and if necessary, make appropriate lifestyle changes. My intention is that through therapy you may be able to build more resilience to better tackle some of life's more difficult circumstances.

It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that requires participation and investment from both the client and the therapist. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

INTEGRATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY

Integrative Psychotherapy is a form of Mind-Body or 'whole' person therapy. 

Integrative Therapy integrates embodied practices into traditional talk therapy. A lot of our stress or trauma gets trapped in the body as well as the mind. Gaining access to emotion and feeling through the body can give us more information for the therapeutic process.  Thus, bringing both body and mind into the healing equation can facilitate for whole person integration and well being. 

Integrative Psychotherapy not only provides the opportunity for you to find your own sense of integration in this whole person model but also integrates different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client.

 

Integrative therapy can help with:

  • Low self-esteem 

  • Feeling lost in life

  • Major life changes

  • Relationship issues

  • Sexuality

  • Spirituality

  • Stress

  • Emotional, childhood wounds

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

SIMONE DA COSTA

BSc. Psychology from St. George's University

MA Core Process Psychotherapy at The Karuna Institute

Yoga Teacher 200hr

Personal Development Workshop Facilitator

My intention is to support you in your journey towards healing, empowerment and self-discovery. I have been on my own journey of self-development and psychological healing for the past 11 years.


I began practicing psychotherapy in October 2019. Although the inner work can feel difficult I have seen the many benefits of it both for myself and for clients. Personally, I practice what I preach. I too engage in therapy and undergo my own inner work. 

I enjoy bringing a holistic approach to therapy as I integrate my years of study and practice in yoga, mindfulness and meditation among other personal development and spiritual modalities.
