Listening is Only the Beginning
“As we heal ourselves, we find new strength and new wisdom that we utilize to assist others. This is a transformative journey, from self-healing to learning how others heal.” – Richard W. Anton
I worked for a great many years, in Calgary’s Mental Health field, prior to becoming a provisional psychologist. My practice started in 2003. Now, several office locations, primarily based in downtown Calgary allows easy access for clients and other professionals.
Important beliefs and values I hold include self-confidence and creativity, optimism and a love of aesthetics, plus hope and a sense of purpose. Combined they create a comparatively strong approach to providing a unique, strengths-focused therapeutic service, aimed at providing a high degree of value.
At Anton Counseling & Health Psychology, we believe in the collaborative power of connectivity – mutual inclusivity and working together. I believe that – as Psychologists – our work is to assist others by providing them with an opportunity to see, understand, and make a difference in their own lives. In the spirit of leading by example, it is vital for us to connect and collaborate with our colleagues and our community. Our noble cause is nothing less than a gift, a privilege, and a creative work of art. Therapy is not a time to vent. It is an opportunity to engage in a healthy, therapeutic dialogue with a professional.
Your Professional Reputation Depends on it
The tone that we create through our communication should create a feeling of “family and friends,” for both our clients and each other. I would like to personally extend an invitation to partner with other independent clinicians. Together, we can set and demonstrate an active and healthy example, by delivering the highest level of service possible to our clients, patients, and our community in general.
