What’s in a Name?

Connectivity Counselling is more than just a name.
It is a philosophy informed by science and experience.

Philosophy

Many of us struggle to explain our own behavior, thoughts, and feelings. When we struggle to understand something, we struggle to control it. This leaves us feeling powerless and for most people, powerlessness is associated with danger, pain, and fear. This leaves us constantly trying to explain what is going on around us. However, if we do not have all of the information we need, we are often left guessing (and usually our guesses are wrong). The philosophy of Connectivity Counselling is that information is power. By increasing knowledge and understanding of how things work, we increase our ability to make changes where change is needed.

Science

Our environmental and interpersonal experiences become internalized, not only impacting the structure and function of the brain, but in many ways determining that structure and function. Over time, the brain can become confused, connecting ideas, experiences, and emotions that should not be connected. The process of therapy and education is the process of identifying how these things have become connected, disconnecting them if necessary, and connecting things that should be connected. The name Connectivity Counselling serves as a constant reminder of that process.

Experience

Many times in my life, I asked that oft-repeated question, “Why me?” Many times in my life, that question seemed to be answered quite forcefully, though the answer often came years later. Experiences that initially caused pain eventually led to learning and that learning finally led to the ability to help someone else. The idea of the interconnectedness of all things proposes that everything happens for a reason and that we all play a role in the giant system of existence. It is my goal, through Connectivity Counselling, to help you turn the pain of the past into the promise of the future. I know that sounds corny, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

Why Choose Connectivity?

I recognize the need to work around the schedules of busy people.

There’s no hiding behind a big desk. Instead, I focus on being a real, authentic person. There’s no sense in asking people to open up to a brick wall or counselling robot.
