Debbie Homewood, Counselor in Richmond Hill
My approach is gentle, empowering, compassionate and focuses on giving clients the means to better understand themselves and their situation as well as providing them with practical tools to manage their stress, anxiety and deal with their feelings. I incorporate key concepts from Existential Therapy, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic Models of Therapy and Gestalt Therapy, which include increasing a client's capacity for self-regulation, self-awareness and responsibility for self, searching for meaning and identity, developing or increasing the ability to stay present and connected to self, others and their life circumstances and developing good internal groundedness.

I am a certified biofeedback practitioner and, when appropriate, use biofeedback to guide the session and monitor the effects of the various approaches used. I am a certified Logotherapist, specializing in helping people find meaning and live authentic lives. Loss of meaning occurs through depression. life changes, grief and aging.
I have over 25 years experience in private practice and three years of full-time experience as a Pastoral Advisor working in a multi-cultural and multi-faith community helping the terminally ill and their families. Please see my website www.Kerrybrook.ca for more information.
