About Tiffani

Every person has experiences unique to them that affect the course of their inner selves and trajectory of their life. Tiffani approaches each and every client experience with curiosity and significance, offering support to clients to discover what lies beneath their conscious awareness. She has been immersed in the theories of Gestalt therapy and Buddhist Psychology for many years and these approaches form the foundation of her therapeutic practice and support the experiential exploration of client experience. In addition to attending to the client’s presenting concern, the greater goal of therapy is to gain increased self-awareness, and Tiffani facilitates this through guiding clients to “be with what is” (thoughts, feelings, sensations). In accessing “what is” moment-to-moment, better contact can be made with the inner self, and discovery of the experiences that lead to the current state of self becomes possible. Gradually, the subconscious is made conscious. Thus, unhelpful patterns of behaving toward self and in relationships can be identified and shifted, mental health issues can be clarified and addressed, confidence and agency can be cultivated. The knowing that comes from this therapeutic experience can guide clients to make choices in their life that are more congruent and authentic to them and therefore lead to more satisfying and fulfilling lives. 

 

 Couple Counselling

In Tiffani’s approach to relationship counselling, she integrates a few theories to support development of awareness and insight to a couple dynamic and the helpful/unhelpful patterns in their relating. The foundations of her work with couples are Attachment theory (EFT models) , body-to-body intimacy and sex theory (Stella Resnick) and Dan Wile’s Collaborative Couple theory. In addition to one’s own enhanced self-awareness, in couple work, the goal also becomes to understand the others’ experience and what has led to their way of being, as well as how their "attachment style" may be impacting their relating and communication.  Couples work toward understanding and accepting the other, and they can then move from engaging in accusatory relating to attempting to understand the others’ stance in any given interaction. It then becomes possible to view the relationship and communication patterns from a “bird’s eye perspective” in order to gain more clarity of unhelpful relating habits and to identify new ways of being and communicating for the relationship to thrive and for each partner to feel heard, validated and happy.
