Vancouver Psychologist - Counselling and Therapy for Individuals and Couples

My practice of therapy concentrates on what you want to be different and what can lead to a better future. My therapy sessions are informed by my clients' feedback. 

MY BACKGROUND

Beverley Kort,

Registered Psychologist

I am a "Solution Focused" therapist. This is an approach that places the focus on a person’s future circumstances and goals rather than concentrating past experiences.

 

I work with my clients to develop a new vision of the future and explore what difference that will make in their lives as we begin developing strategies leading towards this better future.

LOOKING FOR THERAPY?

You may be experiencing the following:

  • You feel overwhelmed by life problems

  • Anxiety, anger or depression are taking over your life

  • You have come to an impasse with a major life descision

  • You are having difficulty with important relationships

  • Your job is too stressful and you are having work related problems

  • You, a member of your family or a friend, are coping with a serious illness

  • You are in the midst of a transition or loss - death, divorce, retirement, immigration, parenthood and are having trouble adjusting to the changes

MY APPROACH

Focus on what can lead to a better future

Determining your goals from the first meeting helps to make the most out of each session. We take into consideration your strengths and areas of competence and apply them to how you would like things to change in the future.

 

At times it may be important to understand your current problems in a historical context - this is done in order to determine how you may have come to be stuck in this particular way and how best to deal with it in the present, and more importantly, how to overcome them in the future.  We also may look to the past to find what already has occurred that fits with the future you want to build.

My practice of therapy concentrates on what can lead to a better future rather than what is missing and causing you to be unhappy.

Many people report that therapy has helped them:

  • Feel more confident about the future

  • Have more satisfying relationships with friends, family members and intimate partners

  • Manage their moods and feelings more effectively

  • Feel more like "themselves" again

  • Enjoy life in a new way with greater options for the future

  • Resolve unfinished business (emotional traumas, etc) successfully

  • Be more resilient when dealing with stress

 

Individual Therapy

Building on what you want from our work together we will develop a new vision for your future and explore what difference that will make in your life

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy offers each of you the benefit of a neutral place to come to talk about your difficult issues as well as your successes as a couple and to get a new perspective.
