Hi, I'm Dan Good! Welcome to Connection Counselling. However you have found your way here, I am glad that you are taking the steps to work towards making change in your life.
Community and connection has always been an important part of my life. As a social being living in this world, it is almost impossible to not have felt the grip of loneliness and disconnection at one point in time. This feeling of disconnection can also reside within. Disconnection from a sense of purpose or meaning in life, disconnection from our values, disconnection from any sense of hope for the future. My approach to counselling can help you find these connections within yourself, and leave more space for you to find these connections in the world outside.
My approach to therapy is not only to incorporate methods that are empirically tested, but also ones that resonate with my experience of the world and of what I have seen to be successful in my work. Tailoring my approach based on your individual need is of utmost importance to me. Gaining your feedback along the way is also vital, and I make sure to check in with you often to make sure the process is feeling right for you.

Ever felt like it was a struggle just to get out of bed? The idea of engaging in anything at all seems like an insurmountable task? You might also be constantly plagued by self-critical thoughts and parts telling you there's no hope for the future. This can feel like a pit with no way out.

Trauma can leave you feeling disconnected from yourself. Its effects are not only psychological, but physical as well. It can change your beliefs about your self, the world, and other people. It lives in the body. Dan's approach to trauma therapy is to walk alongside, go at your own pace and help you build trust within your self to process and let go of the pains that live inside.
Not good enough at work. Not good enough in my relationship. Not good enough to make friends. Not a good enough friend, parent, son, daughter...It can be natural at times to feel this way, but when these feelings persist, and take over our headspace, they can be overwhelming.
