DIVIYA LEWIS, RP

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

There are times in our lives that we just can not seem to get a handle on how to cope with the challenges in our life. Occasionally dictated by genetics, but usually due to life circumstances, and all its challenges, one can get overwhelmed and lose sight of their strengths and resources. During these times, it can be helpful to work with a trained therapist to support you and discuss these challenges.  It is precisely this empathy, compassion, and care that allows Diviya to share an authentic connection.  As well as holding the space that you need to heal.

What is therapy?

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. Diviya uses an integrative approach with clients and tailors an individualized treatment plan.  She has training in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; however, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, motivational-interviewing, positive psychology, and humanistic approaches all inform her work with clients.  In her work, she tailors a treatment plan to each client. She has worked with a wide range of individuals.  For example those living with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, stress/burnout, life transitions, relationship issues, and more.

During therapy sessions, Diviya promotes behavioural transformation by encouraging a changed outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and feelings. She works with clients to understand the patterns of their thoughts, behaviours, emotions, and how these can shape their experience in life, while training them to create distance with their experience, so they can develop tools to be their own therapist. Sometimes, this involves unlearning lessons. Other times, the goal will be to accept and embrace your journey, while moving toward a values-based lifestyle. She will provide a safe space for you and use evidence-based therapeutic interventions that will address your needs. Sometimes it takes is a ripple of insight to create lasting change.  If you are ready to cast that pebble to create that ripple, connect with Diviya.
