Counselling is a partnership where we stand together and look at where we have come from, where we currently are and where we want to be. We walk together through the tough stuff of life and into the mystery and possibility of tomorrow. We work together to create new possibilities from old experiences.
“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny...”
“Your way of thinking develops your perspective and your perspetive becomes your reality.”
Meet Rick Berghauser
I began my career in counselling in 1993 when I entered the helping field working as a Child and Youth Care Counsellor in a residential foster care community. Since this early experience I have worked with biological parents and their families, foster and adoptive parents and their families as well as individual children, youth and adults.
My goal is to help individuals, families and working groups to see how their way of viewing their world affects themselves and those around them. By gaining a new and clear perspective of our current and past situations, we are better equipped to move forward with purpose and direction.
I use cognitive behavioural therapy, positive psychology, Attachment Theory and John Gottman’s work in my approach to counselling and work from a Christian worldview. I understand that counselling can be intimidating and may seem quite uncomfortable for some. Many individuals would like to participate in counselling but feel afraid of the unknown. The idea of entering an office with a stranger and opening up about personal experiences, feelings, fears and beliefs can be intimidating and can keep some from experiencing the many benefits a therapeutic coaching experience can bring. However, I encourage you to call and see how this could be a life changing experience for you.
