Psychotherapy, Counselling and Spiritual Direction 

Psychotherapy and Counselling

Counselling is a service that includes information sharing and empowerment, mostly short-term and very specific.

Psychotherapy is a service that is usually longer term and aims to understand recurring patterns and chronic issues.

Teresa Bryant, R.P.,  specializes in supporting those who are dealing with a chronic or life-limiting illness, are grieving, or are coping with aspects of aging.

 

Teresa is also available to supervise qualifying psychotherapists.

Spiritual Direction

 

Teresa Bryant, R.P., and James Schmeiser, Ph.D., offer spiritual direction.

 

Spiritual direction is a process whereby one asks questions of meaning and faith in a confidential setting.  

This exploration may include questions such as,

  • "What is the meaning of my life?"

  • "What is the meaning of  suffering?"  

  • "How can I cultivate goodness and love?" ,

  • "What is my relationship to Amida or Divine Mystery?"

  • "How can I be of service to others?

 

Spiritual direction can be used to discern one’s life course by considering questions of purpose and life work.  

 

Spiritual direction is not about problem-solving; rather, it is a soul searching and discovering how one is supported in living an other-centered life.

The blossom that opens

in the morning is scattered

by the evening breeze -  

and the dew, condensed

in hours of darkness

before dawn, is dispelled

by the rays of the morning sun. 

 

Heedless - or willfully ignorant of this procession of changes - we dream

of prosperity all through life; and, without an understanding of  the

nature of transience, we hope for longevity.

 

All the while, across

the face of the earth,

moves the restless wind

of impermanence,

dissolving all that it touches.
