"Welcome to Yourself"

At Acorn & Anchor Therapy Centre therapists  & support team use relational, trauma-focused, integrative, and evidence-informed approaches within our practice.  

By integrating evidence-based methods and approaches we support each unique human to meet their own individual needs in an inclusive space.

Therapists provide weekly sessions without limiting the number of sessions rather than  short-term band-aid solutions or targeting one "behaviour" at a time.  We use a relational approach and deeper therapy work to support neuroplasticity, positive self-identity, and  relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mental health issues, resulting in changes in behavioural responses and long-term wellness.

We also utilize a unique *Brain Animals model, designed by our founder over the last 30+ years of education, research and clinical experience. This model is designed to help all clients, at any age, and their families understand brain and body responses to sensory reminders of adverse childhood experiences,  and trauma experiences and share a universal language to support self-regulation and the regulation of big emotions.

*Brain Animals, created by our founder, Michelle L. Guy

The Brain Animals  model also supports the understanding of  being neurodivergent and the complexities  what it means to be identified as Gifted, 2e, ADHD, ASD1, or as someone who is struggling with symptoms of the trauma of asynchronous development, existentialism at an early age,  heightened sensitivity, feeling misunderstood, having seen multiple professionals who have never been "the right fit" and/or the misdiagnosis experienced through life.
