About Discover Hope Counselling Services

Tim Symons

Growing up, I wanted to help people in life. I saw many that were struggling and had a strong desire to reach out and support those in need. As I have grown older this desire has crystalized into a belief. My belief is that people given the right conditions will heal and find solutions to the challenges they face in life. My goal in counselling is to provide a place where those conditions are met. A room that is professional, yet welcoming. A person who will listen to your problems without a judgmental attitude. A mindset that believes in your ability to succeed. I will partner with you to find hope, healing and solutions to your current challenges.

I offer both individual and couples counselling.

  • Individual Counselling: A place where you share the situation you are struggling with in safety. As I listen, I will explore this situation with you, asking questions or offering suggestions that are designed to engage you in the process toward healing and hope.
  • Couples Counselling: Whenever a couple says, ‘We need help with our relationship.” They are taking a brave step of welcoming another into an often private area of their lives. I honor this brave step by listening to each person and finding ways to acknowledge the experiences of both individuals. We explore the ways in which you relate to each other and discover underlying drivers of those interactions. These discoveries pave the way to being able to ‘see the other’ again and adjust our approaches to them.

Qualifications & Experience

Approaches

Narrative Therapy

We each have a sense of who we are that is made from a variety of sources, parents/primary caregivers, siblings, peers, teachers, social media, personal experience and societal expectations. Often times these sources speak with a loud voice that leaves us with a sense that we are weak, shameful, small. That we are unable to face the challenges of life.

The Narrative Approach believes that a person has many strengths within them that will enable them to face the challenges of life. It gives permission for people to look at other voices in their life, to re-examine the message that our experiences have taught us and ask ourselves, “What are the voices that acknowledge and reinforce my strengths?”

EFT – Emotionally Focused Therapy

When we met our partners we were full of hope as to what this relationship might become. We fall in love, we get married or we move in together, we say things like, “I’ll always love you.” But years, months or even weeks later we feel alone, frustrated and angry. That intial hope seems far away, and we wonder why we said those things to begin with. We feel unheard and caught in cycles of arguments that don’t resolve

Emotionally focused therapy focuses on the ability of couples to recognize the ways in which conversations become unproductive cycles, to stop those cycles, and to share the underlying emotions that drive our actions. When these cycles are halted and couples share those drives, they often regain (or discover) that sense of ‘being seen’ by the other. This in turn can lead to a rediscovery of the reasons that drew one another together and a strengthing of those bonds.
