Fresh perspectives • New solutions

Patricia Nasmyth, MA


I work with people who seek relief as they find themselves gripped by depression, weighted by grief, seized by rage, unmoored by loss, paralyzed by anxiety, tensed by stress, or thrown by change. My approach is collaborative and based on the belief that people already possess the tools needed to change. Through the work we do together, you have the opportunity to become more aware of your feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

Email Counselling
Writing becomes part of the therapy process in these sessions where you set the pace.

Telephone Sessions
Counselling by telephone is an alternative source of help when in-person sessions are not possible or convenient for you.

Group Therapy 
Group therapy provides the opportunity to work through issues in an interpersonal context and to try out new ways of behaving in a supportive, confidential atmosphere. I will design sessions to meet group needs.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a method of psychotherapy used to treat trauma or an upsetting experience you have not recovered from. It can also assist with the healing of any physical health concern.
