Counselling Approaches

Joel takes a client directed approach that blends Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). He works from a Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) perspective which uses the client’s feedback to quickly and effectively help them identify their strengths as well as growth edges and areas for improvement. He understands that clients sometimes feel like the only answer they can come up with is “I don’t know”, and that may leave them feeling lost, stuck, or unsure.
