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
The goal, aim, and purpose of a psychologist is to learn how to create positive emotions. Our job is to support our clients to transform their unhappy emotions into happy ones. We learn how to do this directly through our own life experience and vicariously through our clients’ efforts.
Before opening Anton Counseling & Health Psychology, I was employed as a counselor for a great many years. My practice started in 2003. Now, several office locations – primarily based in downtown Calgary – allows easy access for clients and a network of other professionals.
Essential Beliefs and Values: I personally value self-confidence and creativity. I believe in optimism, aesthetics, and continuous improvement. Hope and a sense of purpose function as pathways to happiness. They guide my therapeutic practice. Of central importance to therapy is the concept of “dialogue.”
Combined, all these beliefs and values function as the underlying “Psychological Space” for a fresh new robust approach to therapy. I provide a unique, strengths-focused therapeutic service aimed at providing a high degree of client value. My clients must grow and evolve. I must support, encourage, liberate potential, and encourage a stronger identity.
At Anton Counseling & Health Psychology, we believe in “the flowing together of multiple voices.” This is how we become strong, healthy, and well-adjusted. We assist others to see, understand, and make a difference in their own lives.
In the spirit of leading by example, we can connect and collaborate with our colleagues and our community. Being a counseling Psychologist is a gift, a privilege, and a creative work of art. Therapy is not a time for a tirade or 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 set through our communication should create an accepting, engaged, and supportive feeling for both our clients and our therapists. Together, our voice is strong. Together, we will thrive.
Anton Counseling & Health Psychology strives to provide an opportunity for you to express yourself. Our profession already provides us with mission, values, and purpose. It’s now up to you to provide acceptance and appreciation.
I want to personally extend an invitation to partner with other independent clinicians. Together, we can demonstrate a healthy example for clients. Just one more opportunity for you, as we strive to create a family feeling, together. A family of continuous learning, personal growth, and professional improvement to deliver the highest level of service possible.
