Laurie Hamer, Reg, Psyc, MCPsyc, BA, BEd, Psychologist in Lethbridge
CONFIDENTIAL, COMPASSIONATE, AND SKILLED...As a Registered Provisional Psychologist, I help people solve problems by offering both insight and encouragement respectful, collaborative environment. I specialize in couples therapy including premarital and marital counselling for heterosexual and same-sex couples, though I enjoy working with individual as well. My clients are teens, adults, and senior citizens seeking assistance with a wide variety of issues including family conflict, parenting, depression, anxiety, bipolar, self-esteem, anger management, self-harm, addictions, chronic pain/illness, trauma, PTSD, grief and transition/adjustment issues.
I am a PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) trained therapist with specialized skills for helping couples understand patterned responses to relational conflict. I am also a registered yoga teacher with specialized training in mindfulness. I offer trauma-sensitive yoga and yoga therapy as adjuncts to counselling.
My approach to therapy is grounded in the most recent neuroscience research. By employing what is known about the human brain, and particularly the neurological effects of stress and trauma, I have learned to access interventions that move beyond traditional talk-therapy. Counselling that is EVIDENCE-BASED and CUTTING EDGE!
