Judy Sowerby

Registered Social Worker Psychotherapist

What problem do you strive to overcome?

If you are considering counseling, you might feel hopeless and powerless over changing the struggles that you have been living with for years- in many cases, for as long as you can remember. 

Along with developing a healthy, trusting, therapeutic relationship, I want to give you hope. You can develop growing beliefs that your struggles can be altered in ways that increase your personal power, power over self, and increase your ability to create a life that brings you joy.

Having created a safe place to understand, and shift old patterns of interacting with self and others, you can develop the ability to manage your life. You can have faith in your ability to manage what comes up and be present in a healthy life that you are creating..

More than just my work:

  1. favourite quote. "Catch the stories that you tell yourself about who you are and what you deserve. Your brain believes what you tell it and looks for evidence that it is true. It always finds it, and minimizes all the evidence that does not fit the story that you have been telling yourself."

  1. What brings you a sense of ease?   Optimism- I have faith in my ability to manage my life. I dont have to know what's coming up, I just know that I will figure it out.

3. Outdoors brings me peace- to walk, to eat, to nap, to dance, to be still.
