Therapy Sessions

Adults

We all want to feel calm and happy. Too often, we experience multiple sources of pressure and stress and these can intersect to have a very significant impact on our psychological, cognitive and even physical wellbeing. Some of the areas that I work on with clients include:

  • Stress and Anxiety

  • Overwhelm

  • Depression

  • ADHD

  • Relationship and Family Issues

  • Trauma

  • Transitions

Teens

We will work together as a team to help your teen learn what it feels like to be calm (many teens don't ever feel this way), recognize and reduce their stressors, then reflect on how they feel and behave when they are in a high-stress state, and develop a set of practices that the teen can use to return to a state of calm and security. Your participation in the process, as parents, is essential. Although most of the time during our sessions will be your teen working alone with me, some time every session is spent with all of us together.

Some of the things that teens want to work on in our sessions include:

  • Stress and Anxiety

  • Depression

  • ADHD-related challenges

  • Sleep-related difficulties

  • School-related difficulties

  • Friendship issues

  • Self-harm

  • Sexuality or Gender issues

ADHD

High Sensitivity Trait
(HSP)

Research indicates that 7-10% of the population have an ADHD-type mind. This is not a mental health problem - it is simply a different type of mind. However, in a neurotypical world, ADHDers can struggle more than others with:

  • Stress and anxiety

  • Low mood and fluctuating emotional states

  • Sleep difficulties

  • Procrastination

  • Getting started on tasks

  • Planning, organising and managing time

  • Focus - either too much or not enough

  • Poor self confidence

  • Relationships

  • and more

Janelle has a special interest in working with ADHDers (adults and teens) and has found that learning about how your own mind works plus practical strategies to use to overcome or manage some of the challenges mentioned above can make a significant improvement to your psychological wellbeing, how you feel about yourself, and how well you navigate your everyday life.

15-20% of the population, both females and males, are born with the high sensitivity trait. Some of the features of this trait can lead to an experience of feeling overwhelmed by everyday life. HSPs are likely to feel exhausted when life is busy, stressful, or when they find themselves in new situations (or just contemplating them). And they reach a point, often at the end of the day, where they just can't cope with anymore stimulation. They might also develop problematic anxiety or depression, or a pervasive tendency to people-please and sacrifice their needs for others'.

The high sensitivity trait is not a disorder and there is no 'treatment' per se. The good news is that learning to identify your beliefs and behaviour patterns, regulate your emotions, and make some simple life changes can have a significant impact on your wellbeing, as well as your relationship with your self and others.
