Hi, I'm Dan Good! 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. The main modalities I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS). I also incorporate aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and Emotion Focussed Therapy (EFT). 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.
