Therapy for Adults in Ottawa Centretown


Approved as a General Member of the OACCPP!

Today I was approved as a General Member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists. OACCPP was formed in 1978 as a self-regulated professional association that now represents over 2000 mental health practitioners in a variety of settings throughout the province of Ontario. Learn about the OACCPP here.

Since 2008, I've been a Registered Clinical counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, and I am currently in the process of registering with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and the newly proclaimed College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I'll keep you posted as these registrations are finalized.

How to Appear Confident (and Maybe Become More Confident in the Process)

1. Imagine someone who appears invincible and try to mirror their body language.

2. Breathe deep and slow. 

3. Stand tall, level your gaze, smile, and look around you in a slow, deliberate way.

4. Maintain eye contact for a few seconds with each person you encounter.

5. Express yourself with a strong, resonant voice.

6. Use hand gestures to show your feelings and emphasize key concepts.

7. Move toward people slightly when you want to engage them.

8. Show warm appreciation for the chance to connect when saying goodbye.
