Navigating Emotions, Reframing Narratives

Empowering You Through
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Are these some of the stories you tell yourself when emotions engulf you?

Humans are born storytellers, and sometimes it’s not the emotion itself- rather, it’s the story we tell ourselves about emotions. What experiences come to mind when you feel sad? Are you telling yourself this feeling will never pass? Or that this feeling is going to last forever? Here at UnFix, my work is all about challenging your narratives, and giving you a sense of agency over your thoughts, emotions and behaviour- all of which, influence the other!

Every Therapist works a little differently.

I believe that therapy is a journey of co-exploration. As a therapist, I tend to emphasise a collaborative approach – where you and I both, share equal responsibility and accountability for your progress. I use a person-centred approach that emphasises the person before a diagnosis. I offer a non-judgemental space where you can express yourself in a way that you might not be able to in the outside world. The therapy room (whether virtual or physical) then becomes a simulation of the real world beyond therapy. In here, we can challenge thoughts, learn about how you perceive yourself, how others perceive you, and how you respond to challenges in your life. Eventually my goal is to have you be your own therapist- and swim without floats!

Therapy FAQs

As a therapist, I do not prescribe medications. Medication is usually prescribed by Psychiatrists or Doctors. While I am familiar with medications, I am not able to tell a practitioner what to prescribe to you. However, I might communicate with your medication prescriber if you consent to it, and I am open to referring you to a Psychiatrist when I feel like it could benefit you.

While there can be many benefits to therapy as a way to become aware of your patterns of behavior, and feeling like someone ‘needs’ therapy can be a stigmatizing way of approaching the topic, here’s what the American Psychological Association recommends. 


  • You may need therapy when something causes you distress in a way that it might affect some part of your life
  • When coping with the issue takes up at least an hour a day 
  • When the issue has decreased your quality of life
  • When the issue has negatively affected your career, personal life, or relationships
  • If you are controlled by your symptoms like feeling anxious or depressed, and could cause harm to yourself or others if left untreated

This looks different for each individual- because each individual comes in with different challenges and concerns. However, in general you can expect to discuss current events in your life, relevant personal history and make goals accordingly. From time to time we may also revisit these goals to see how much progress you have made from them, and if they need amendments along the way.

Yes, counselling sessions are confidential. The only exceptions would be if you were to pose a danger to yourself or others, in which case the parties involved would be notified.

Although I appreciate support and welcome the opportunity to create a safe community on my public account, it is essential to keep boundaries between my personal and professional life as a therapist and for that reason, I don’t open my private account to clients. Besides being a personal decision, it is also a rule I must follow owing to the ethics in my profession. 

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a of time-limited, goal-oriented therapy that has been extensively researched for the treatment of psychiatric disorders.According to the cognitive behavioral model, thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected – and psychopathology occurs because of problematic patterns in thinking and behavior that lead to difficult emotions and behaviors that do not serve us. The aim of CBT is to help patients adopt more adaptive patterns of thinking and behavior to improve function and quality of life.

KEY behaviors CBT can be helpful for are

– Attention related challenges

– Pandemic stress

– Social Anxiety

– Self-defeating thoughts

– impulsivity

– defiance

– tantrums

– Self-Image

– Unusual eating

CBT usually starts out with weekly sessions. As treatment progresses, sessions may be spaced further apart, such as every two weeks or month, depending on the client . Once our clients finish CBT, it is common to return for a ‘booster’ session to deal with setbacks and refresh themselves on previously learned skills.

Although it is shorter term than other types of therapy, contrary to popular belief, CBT is not a quick fix. Learning new patterns of behavior is a process, and it can take a few sessions for you to start learning from and applying therapeutic techniques we discuss in session. The practice that you put in between sessions is as important ( if not more) than the actual sessions for this reason- so you can practice trying out your new skills! This being said, progress and process depends on the client and relavant concern.

Yes. If you require more than one session a week, we may be able to accommodate this depending on availability- and the frequency of sessions will be reviewed as therapy progresses.

In order to reserve a certain time slot just for you each week there will be a cancellation policy that applies. This policy will be shared with you prior to your first appointment.

Yes, we are operating virtually as well as in person, depending on your location.  A 2018 study published in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders determined that online cognitive behavioral therapy is “effective, acceptable, and practical health care.” The study found that online cognitive behavioral therapy was just as effective as face-to-face treatment for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.

At UnFix, you’ll have the opportunity to freely talk about yourself and work through problems without worrying about someone expressing their own opinions, criticisms, while being conscious of their biases. While friends and family have a benefit of knowing you very well, a therapist is trained to help you approach situations by teaching you to gain a different perspective, learn scientifically researched coping skills and improve your relationship with self and others. In addition, what is said in therapy is also private and confidential which will help you discuss topics that you might find too embarrassing or difficult to share with friends or family.

Although it is normal to feel like someone without the same amount of life experience as you won’t be able to help you, this is a misconception. There are some cons to considering age when making a decision about working with a therapist. It’s important to recognize that a therapist’s age is not necessarily an indicator of how experienced, relatable, or helpful they will be. Even young therapists have experience helping clients through their practicums, internships, and the supervised clinical experience that is required to become a licensed professional counselor.
