Therapeutic Approaches

Providing tailored services is our specialty! Regardless of the issues you are struggling with, your Bliss Therapist will utilize a variety of Psychotherapy and Counselling methodologies to ensure you receive the specialized support you are looking for.

Therapy is a process designed to produce lasting change in your life. Through weekly or bi-weekly sessions, therapy can help us gain a greater sense of peace, understanding of the world you live in, and greater resolution of your personal issues. Bliss Counselling offers a variety of therapies designed to help you achieve your well-being and personal goals. Your goals for therapy will be largely based on what you tell us during your intake session(s), we may also use specialized assessments to identify what is the best approach for you and, in some cases, where the exact problems lie if you are unsure. You or your relationship is unique, with unique personalized needs. We listen to you from the beginning to ensure your therapeutic process is tailored specifically for you.

Certain therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychoanalytic Therapy are well known in mainstream culture, while others are less known but also evidenced based and very effective. Examples of these are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Existential, Relational, and Sex Therapy. All of these types of therapy can be started here in KW at our offices in Uptown Waterloo.

While therapy may seem like a large investment of time and finances, remember it’s an investment in your life. Though it’s easy to forget, you (and your life) are important and need to be taken care of. If you have a cavity, you’d get it take care of by a dentist. The same goes for therapy. If you have a relationship, career, stress, anxiety, or family issue, seeking therapy is the right thing to do. Are you ready to do the right thing for your life? Get in touch with us today!

We believe the therapeutic alliance – that felt bond between therapist and client(s) – is the most powerful factor in the process of emotional and psychological healing.


We can help you resolve your concerns, whether they be related to your overall well-being, relationships or sex. Research shows that one of the primary factors in a successful therapy experience is a genuine connection with a trusted therapist who understands you and is capable of guiding you toward positive change. This can be a powerful alliance that can help you break out of unproductive patterns, create exciting changes and move toward those inner desires that sometimes whisper to you quietly but can later turn into a full-on shove in the direction of a better life. Whichever it happens to be for you, we are ready to help you finally make those desires a reality!
