CAROLINE BRADFIELD, MACP, RCC
We all know our individual well-being and relationships are integral to personal and professional satisfaction. Towards this end, counselling focuses on mutual goal setting while always working to help a client establish deeply embedded feelings and patterns of self-worth, well-being, and meaningful relationship connections.
Through a respectful and caring exploration encouraging curiosity and gentleness towards your behaviours, emotions, thoughts, and belief systems, you and your relationships are capable of deeper understanding, growth and change.
Creating a sense of wholeness can start with something as simple as feeling heard, seen and understood – key concepts to our individual well-being and relationship satisfaction.
I am passionately in love with the work I do and believe that every person is capable of growth and transformational change. Working with individuals, couples and in family systems, my expertise is in the areas of anxiety, depression, stress, emotional numbing and shutdown, conflict and abuse, grief, loss, unmet expectations, injuries such as infidelity, disappointments and addictions, and forgiveness. I am able to help clients increase self awareness while decreasing the confusion of internal chaos and strife. The outcome is greater overall satisfaction, and better relationships.
I have a Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) through Yorkville University, and prior to this, a B.A. from Queen’s University. I completed my Level 1 & 2 Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy training through the Satir Institute of the Pacific (SIP), Gottman’s Level 1 Method Couples Clinical Training and have an ongoing connection to the work of Dr. Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy. I also have experience in Non-Violent Communication and a daily practice in mindfulness, especially appreciating the work of Pema Chodrun and Dr. Tara Brach.
I’m married to a wonderful man, and have 2 children who are young adults and a teenage stepson. When not at work, I love spending time with my family and our dog, all things outdoors, mountain biking, and traveling.
