Therapy when you need it
Hi there, I'm Alan Archibald, a trained and registered psychotherapist. In my therapy sessions, you'll find a welcoming space where you can freely express yourself without judgment. Together, we'll delve into your thoughts, feelings, and relationships, fostering a safe and supportive environment aimed at guiding you towards a more authentic and fulfilling life.
What can therapy help with?
Are you seeking therapy that delves into the roots of your struggles? My psycho-dynamic psychotherapy focuses on how early life experiences shape your present. Together, we'll explore patterns and life events to uncover the why behind your challenges. I address issues like depression, anxiety, trauma, and more, prioritizing your unique experience and helping you find peace amidst the difficulties. Let's face this journey together towards clarity and healing.
I currently have online spaces available so why wait?
Individual therapy in person
Experience personalized therapy designed to fit seamlessly into your routine. Weekly or twice-weekly sessions, held in person at a convenient location, ensure consistency and comfort. Choose between our brief 16-session therapy or open-ended approach, tailored to support your individual journey towards healing and growth.
Type of sessions
Individual therapy via Zoom
Experience therapy from the comfort of your own space, tailored to fit your schedule. Sessions are conveniently held weekly or twice weekly via Zoom or Skype, ensuring consistency and convenience. Choose from brief 16-session therapy or open-ended sessions, designed to meet your unique needs and goals.
Before we embark on our therapeutic journey together, it's essential for us to connect and ensure it feels like the right fit. Let's dedicate two 90-minute sessions to explore your needs, goals, and expectations. This time is for us to think together and decide if continuing feels right for you.
What can I expect at my first appointment?
Your first session marks the beginning of your therapeutic journey, and it's natural to feel a bit apprehensive.
Rest assured, your feelings are valid, and they indicate the significance of seeking support.
I create a safe, confidential environment where you can freely express yourself and explore the reasons behind seeking therapy. Beyond delving into your concerns, we'll discuss practical matters like scheduling, fees, and any questions you may have about the therapeutic process.
This initial meeting is an opportunity for us to assess whether our therapeutic relationship aligns with your needs and goals.
To ensure your comfort and safety throughout our time together, we'll meet twice initially, allowing us to deepen our understanding of your experiences and collaboratively develop strategies to support you effectively.
