    About Liona Kehler

     

    Hi there, I’m Liona (she/her/hers). Thanks so much for stopping by today.

    I believe people are, at their core, incredibly resourceful and resilient. We find a way to survive really difficult experiences the best way we are able to. Sometimes, we have really great resources and supports and the challenges we face are just a blip on the life-path. At other times, the challenges are greater or we may not have the resources and support we need, making coping difficult. Warm, compassionate, and experienced therapeutic support can be so helpful in gaining clarity of what we need to find the path forward again…

    About Vern Kehler

     

    Hi, I’m Vern (he/him/his). Thanks kindly for stopping by.

    I believe it takes great courage to show up when life has not always been easy to you. In fact, it’s quite possible that you showing up here today was one of those moments of courage.

    I believe at it’s finest, both healing and growth happen in the company of another human, a safe space in the presence of a non-judgmental listening and supportive ear. I strive to create that kind of a space in therapy.

    I believe courageous steps often lead to resilience, and in turn, resilience makes it easier to take courageous personal steps in the future…

    Don't wait to get the help you've been looking for. Just like everyone else, you deserve to feel well again. Getting started is often one of the toughest steps in therapy.

    Our Philosophy of Counselling and Psychotherapy in Winnipeg

    We believe each person deserves to live the empowered life they want and deserve. We also understand that sometimes there are obstacles that prevent people from living this desired life, but with the right help, the quality of life can almost always be significantly improved, and in many cases the problem can be entirely eliminated.

    Our philosophy of counselling therapy is deeply informed by Person Centered Therapy. This means that our work is tailored to YOUR unique needs and desires. It also means that we work form a non-judgmental, non-oppressive perspective, which means you are welcome to come just as you are today. It also means that we believe in non-discriminatory inclusivity.

    Examples include but are certainly not limited to:

    • We work hard to create a zero-shame environment for you, leaving you space to work on the issues that led to, and maintain, your unique struggles
    • We work hard to create a space in therapy that feels comfortable and safe. To achieve this, we like to use some humour and make our time together as enjoyable as possible, as human as possible
    • Your life, your goals: We believe adults set their own life and health goals. While we will gently challenge and encourage you towards healing and making changes to improve your well-being, we respect how far you wish to go with counselling and with making your desired life-changes. Our goal is to work towards your empowerment

    Your Story Matters

    Each of us has a story. Some aspects of our story are written by our own choices, while other aspects are written by the impact of other people’s choices: parents, siblings, friends, classmates, lovers, and others. Some of this story is beautiful, some of it is beautifully complex; and some of it is so painful that it keeps us from living life fully and deeply. It keeps us stuck in a life filled with shame and guilt, not knowing which is our’ and which is someone else’s responsibility. It keeps us stuck in low self-esteem, and in dissatisfying jobs and relationships. It keeps us from enjoying health and vitality.

    However, as C.S. Lewis said so well, "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." Your story is still being written, you are still writing your story, and there are more days ahead. There are more blank pages just waiting to be written, and you have the power of significant influence over what those pages read.

    Some days will be wonderful, some will be fine, some blah, some will be hard, and it's likely that some of your days will be very difficult. We believe you already have the ability to navigate this all, you just may not have tapped into those abilities, yet. We believe with some support from our skilled, warm, and compassionate therapists, you can have many days of story-living and writing that will induce a celebratory mood for you; i.e. days that will present many compelling reasons to celebrate. It's possible!

    How Can Counselling Services in Winnipeg Help?

    One of the helpful things about counselling therapy is to have someone listen to you for once, truly listen. We believe listening is one of the world’s most scarce commodities. True listening is more than silence while someone else speaks. It is to engage fully in what is being said, leaving you feeling heard and seen. It’s like seeing yourself mirrored on still water when the storm subsides and the waves recede. This, then, makes space to clarify how to work through difficult life-stuff and to regain vitality and holistic health. It offers space to sort through the noise, the shame, and the guilt. It allows space to accept your responsibilities and let go of those that belong to someone else, and clarity to know the difference.
