Enjoy life's moments
Hi, my name is Renée Manley.
Since 2000, I have been helping people overcome obstacles and personal issues that often made it difficult for them to reach goals, tap into potential, and find happiness. I am a passionate professional; a registered and insured MSW (Master of Social Work), with clinical experience in the fields of case management and mental health. I have specific additional training in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (Master Practitioner level), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma-focused CBT, and Crisis Interventions. I work from a strengths based perspective and engage in trauma informed/focused practice. I am comfortable working with all populations, with any concern, in a safe, judgement free, and confidential environment.
Counseling can be helpful...
Need help overcoming historical or recent trauma? To achieve your goals in life? To cope better with a mental health issue?To learn something new and amazing about yourself, or improve the overall quality of your life? I use an array of strategies to help you build skills and increase your self-esteem and confidence. I support you while you resolve, heal, and grow from trauma. I can advocate and provide coaching services that can get you connected to resources and find the tools for success.
Do you feel stuck on a negative event that happened in your life? Did this event leave an emotional injury that seems to sabotage your hard work to move forward? If so, you may be struggling with the impact of trauma. Accelerated Resolution Therapy helps change the way negative images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.
Mental Health Symptoms
Are you noticing repetitive behaviour or thought patterns? Do you feel moody, sad, or worried and anxious for prolonged periods of time? Are you over-reacting to things that, later, seem trivial? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy draws awareness to how thoughts, feelings and behaviours are connected, so that the symptoms are no longer in control.
Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. You can learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.
Together we find the resources, services, tools, the people, and the steps to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. You can build capacity and become a confident practical problem solver.
