Calgary, Alberta – A vicious circle of poor mood, anxiety, and avoidance, is driven by a reduction of confidence in self or one’s abilities. When this happens, people find themselves stuck in a rut without understanding the next steps. At Virtuous Circle Counselling, a team of registered psychologists and counsellors understand mental health and its impact on everyday life. For this reason, they’re committed to offering in-person sessions, online therapy, individual/couple, family, and phone counselling services to people finding it hard to function optimally or going through difficult times.
The Counsellor uses a collaborative process to work with clients to find the best solutions for a particular problem. Since the sessions are goal-oriented, the counsellors formulate and work towards a client’s needs using empathy and active listening. These approaches facilitate change in thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and actions, resulting in balance, stability, and new perspectives.
Virtuous Circle Counselling focuses on anxiety therapy, anger management, depression counselling, trauma therapy, adolescent counselling, PTSD therapy, occupational therapy, self-esteem counselling, sports psychology, grief counselling, and divorce counselling. Psychologists and counsellors use the Virtuous Circle Approach driven by self-compassion and non-judgment. They believe that clients who embrace change take a step toward understanding themselves and getting better results. As the virtuous circle evolves and the cycle repeats, self-trust and confidence grow, activating a powerful feedback loop and chain of events that improve life. The team keeps the virtuous cycle growing through positive reinforcement in an honest, supportive, and authentic environment.
The psychologist Calgary uses EDMR (eye movement and desensitization and reprocessing therapy) to relieve the stress associated with trauma caused by physical/emotional abuse, military combat, serious accidents, neglect/abandonment, natural disasters, and bullying. EDMR helps the client visualize and process traumatic memories, allowing them to begin healing. To identify and change patterns of anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties, the team uses CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). CBT provides a positive rather than a pessimistic view of the future, regardless of a client’s environment, family situation or relationships.
Virtuous Circle Counselling focuses on providing DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to clients suffering from mental health support, other mental disorders, and psychological issues revolving around extreme moods/behaviours. With DBT, clients can build their self-esteem, learn to live in the moment, regulate emotions, accept situations without judgment, and address problems. The clinic’s mindfulness therapy technique addresses moment-to-moment issues to develop a more focused way of looking at the world. Mindfulness helps clients find ways to stop thought errors from turning into a vicious circle.
Additionally, the clinic uses PE (Prolonged Exposure Therapy) to help people with social anxiety, phobias, compulsions, PTSD, obsession, and other emotional/behavioural issues. Virtuous Circle Counselling upholds the belief that people need guidance/counselling to find solutions, move forward, and prevent mental health disorders. Through therapy, a person can heal from their behaviours, past wounds, and attitudes to achieve self-awareness/personal responsibility.
