My name is Lindsey Stephenson, and I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist. I believe in the power of counselling because I’ve experienced firsthand. I can’t recall how many times where my psychologist would offer a new insight, a different perspective, have compassion for what I went through, or was simply just there for me and listened – and it changed everything. Sometimes, areas where I was stuck for a long time would radically change with as little as one new insight or perspective. Other times, just having someone listen and understand what I went through would lead to relief and compassion for myself, as I realized I had valid reasons to think and feel the way I did. As I met with them, I was able to piece things together and everything started to make sense. I began to experience healing, wholeness, health, joy, purpose, and love myself. Life was now different, better.
My only regret with counselling is that I didn’t go sooner!
This is why I became a psychologist – so others may share in the benefits of counselling as I have, and live life in a way they never thought was possible.
