Alexandria Kennedy - Counsellor in Saskatoon

Do you feel like a failure because you don’t quite fit in this world?  Do you feel guilt and shame because you can’t keep up with the expectations?  Is life just a little too overwhelming?  I specialize in helping those who feel stuck in patterns that bring frustration and shame.

You might be diagnosed with ADHD, Autism or just feel like you are struggling to get through the muck of grief, anxiety, or depression.  You might be someone struggling to support a loved one who is trying make their way in a world that isn’t designed for them.

I help bring understanding to life’s difficult challenges.  In my approach to therapy, I help bring clarity to problems that keep us stuck.  I help you find your strength and equip you with skills to manage your emotions and find a way to not just survive but thrive.

Leighton Tebay BA, MC, CCC

Leighton Tebay - Counselling in Saskatoon

Counselling can help heal the emotional damage and trauma that fuels anxiety, depression, addiction and anger.  Do you have an inner critic that won’t let up, fear that won’t let go, or emotional pain you just can’t keep a lid on any more? Do you have a hard time believing you are good enough? I’m here to help people let go of the hurt and shame and get their life back.

Anxiety, depression, addiction and anger  look different in each of us but underneath it there is hurt, fear and shame.  I can help you find your own inner strength and compassion and then heal the hurt, transform the fear and release the shame.  The goal is to go beyond managing things like anxiety and anger and heal it at the source.

At the heart of my approach is IFS or Internal Family Systems.   It is a transformative approach to psychotherapy that empowers individuals to become their best selves.  IFS is a powerful and gentle approach for those who wish to recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect, and other difficult experiences.  As an evidence based approach for treating trauma and is also effective for a variety of mental health conditions.
