Michelle A. Bentley MA, RP, RMFT ~ Psychotherapy & Counselling

Helping individuals & families navigate challenges in their lives.

Why would someone want to get counselling or psychotherapy?

Counselling and psychotherapy provide persons with the opportunity to talk confidentially
with a professional therapist who has the expertise to help you to understand yourself and
explore any challenges that are limiting you from where you want to be in your life and relationships.
Persons seeking therapy often state that they feel "stuck" or "lost", or perhaps have specific
concerns such as anger, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, family conflicts, lack confidence,

have parenting questions, or are grieving a loss such as a job or loved one.

A psychotherapist offers expertise in psychotherapeutic understanding and provides a non-judgmental
relationship to assist you in identifying your goals for therapy, offer perspectives on
your situation
or past experiences, provide relevant information, support you through any emotional distress,
and in general support and encourage you as you come to new awareness or consider possible
changes towards achieving your goals. Most people who consult with a psychotherapist report finding
healing and growth, through the perspectives and process of personal exploration involved in this
unique and supportive relationship.
