Welcome

Welcome to Blaikie Psychotherapy.  I’m glad that you’re here.

Even thinking about talking to a therapist requires courage and you’ve taken the first step.

People choose to talk to a therapist for many different reasons—some are specific:  coping with the death of a loved one, living with a life-threatening illness, the loss of a job or significant relationship, challenging couple or family relationships, or the need for ways to deal with anger or anxiety.   Often it’s because of feeling a general dissatisfaction with life, the desire to problem-solve a situation or discuss a life transition.  No matter the reason, there may be a sense that it is time to seek help outside of your current circle of support.

Studies have shown that the most important element leading to a successful counselling experience is the relationship between the client and therapist.  Therefore, it’s important that you find a therapist that you feel comfortable and safe with; that you feel will listen to your concerns and travel with you on your healing journey.  I encourage you to spend time on this website, exploring the areas of concern that I may be able to help you with, my approach to counselling, blog posts and the specifics of taking part in therapy with me.

If you have any questions, please call me at (519) 404-6632; or email me at laurie@laurieblaikie.com.  You can also use the contact page on this site.

Thanks for visiting Blaikie Psychotherapy and I wish you well in your search for healing.
