Ken offers Assistance to Individuals of all Ages in Dealing with a Wide Variety of Difficulties in Their Lives. His Expertise and Experience Includes but are Not Limited to the Following Issues
Stress, Anxiety, Panic and Depression Difficulties
The very definition of Stress is the Adaption of a Person’s Body and Mind to any demand for Change that is made on it. Stress isn’t even connected to whether you want something or like it. Rather, it’s connected to the Intensity and Duration of the Change and the amount of Adaption Required. For example, most people would say that getting Married and having Children were some of the Happiest Times of their Lives, and yet most would admit they were amongst the Most Stressful Time Periods as so many changes occur on Many Levels. While obviously unwanted things that happen are more stressful, the Intensity, Importance and the Demand for Change connected to Marriage and having Children make them Stressful, despite our Desire for Them.
If Change is the Root Cause of Stress, it’s easy to see why so many of us are “Stressed Out”. Change is occurring at an unheard of rate in History, and the Traditional Stabilizing Supports like Extended Families have often Largely Disappeared. Anxiety and Panic Disorders are largely Our Response to a sense of being Overwhelmed and Feeling like You may Not be able to Stay in Control and “Keep it Altogether”.
Depression, like many difficulties is a Complex Multifaceted One. Psychotherapy has been shown as Beneficial to People struggling with Depression. While often Biochemically connected, Depression often appears to be a side effect of Chronically Feeling Hopeless that things can change positively. Over the years, many Individuals who have suffered this terrible disorder have said that they found working with Ken very beneficial, using both the Traditional Psychotherapy as well as the Energy Therapy Work.
Physical, Sexual and Emotional Trauma
Trauma occurs in many people’s lives. It can be from accidental or intentional events and the negative result of trauma can be significant. It’s effect can be life-altering and it’s impact lifelong. Thankfully, there are Very Effective Approaches, which, in conjunction with Traditional Talk Therapy, can often be of Significant Help. Some of these Energy tools can have an almost Immediate Impact and the Resulting Release from the Body’s Triggering Terror never gets re-experienced with the same intensity. Ken regularly works with victim’s of Physical and Sexual Assaults, Car Accidents and Member’s who have left the Canadian Armed Forces.
Grief Support to Those Who have Experienced Significant Loss
The One Unchangeable Reality in Life, is that everything that lives, from plants, animals and people, All will die. It is strange that the One Inescapable Thing that will occur to us all, is the One Thing that as a Society People do not talk about! This often leaves us Feeling Blindsided when we Inevitably Face Significant Personal Loss, or Not Knowing how to Support Others who are Grieving.
For over 30 years, Ken has worked with Loss and Grief Issues. Many people struggle with Grief as losing a loved one is usually the most emotional pain we experience in our lifetime. However, Unexpected and Traumatic Deaths often cause the Most Difficulty in Healing and Moving Forward. The on-going effects of the Shock or Trauma can block our Natural Ability to heal and move forward, even in grief. By its Nature, Trauma Overwhelms Us, and can Interfere with Moving Forward, even many years later. Thankfully there are techniques which can often shift things and help “Free One Up” be able to release Trauma’s Imprint and Move Forward Healthfully.
Support for Persons with Disabilities
Individuals with Disabilities are Amongst the Most Vulnerable in our Society, and therefore are among those who most frequently suffer Bullying, Abuse and Trauma from others. Ken has regularly been involved with people who have Developmental as well as Physical Disabilities whether the disability be from birth, a result of an accident, or a neurological disease. Over the past twenty-five years, Ken has worked with Adolescents and Adults who are on the Autistic Spectrum. As well as talk therapy and trauma tools, he often employs Non-Verbal Tools like Tibetan Singing Bowls as well as Attachment Based Work in Supporting Individuals with some form of Disability.
