STRESS MANAGEMENT

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Daily chronic stress can be one of the toughest to manage. Working together, we'll collaborate and build your tool box and find the right outlets to help you thrive in today's world of go go go.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

What is self discovery? It looks different to all of us. It’s important to remember that it’s about the journey, not the destination. In a supportive environment, I offer help, guidance and unconditional acceptance of self.

RELATIONSHIPS

RELATIONSHIPS

Whether you're looking to better relate to your co-workers, find that special someone or take a deeper look at the relationship with yourself, I'm here to honour that and help you relate, communicate and succeed.

ANXIETY RELIEF

ANXIETY RELIEF

Anxiety at any time or degree can be debilitating and can keep you from shining and being your true self. Getting curious is step one to finding the root cause of anxiety, and developing your tool chest to rely on during times of heightened anxiety.

GRIEF COUNSELLING

GRIEF COUNSELLING

Individual, unique and personal to everyone. There is no time limit or set defined rules around grief. It takes as long as it takes. If you do find that your grief is now impeding your lifestyle, health and wellness compassionate support is available.

#METOO

#METOO

#METOO is one of the strongest women's movements in the 21st century and has become a platform for allowing women to speak out and be heard. Take this unique opportunity to be heard and start to heal, all the while knowing it will be done with 100% confidentiality, compassion and respect.

SHADOW WORK

SHADOW WORK

Not all growth happens in the light. Shadow work doesn't just look at the darker side of self. Shadow work is meant to bring one to wholeness by recognizing what we do not want, like or have forgotten in ourselves. What lies in your shadow remains to be seen. Honouring that part of us allows us the ultimate journey of self love and acceptance.

SOMATIC INQUIRY

SOMATIC INQUIRY

When all else fails, be in touch with your body - it never lies. Your body holds the key to what you need to know. Working in a comfortable space, I'll help you get in tune with your body, and hear what it needs. Let us listen together and unlock the secrets your body has been waiting to release.

GROUP THERAPY

GROUP THERAPY

Despite our independent nature group therapy can guide and teach us how to interact in a group and relate on a personal level. It can also show us how, why and what that we respond to, all while gently bringing awareness to self. Hosted in a supportive and compassionate environment, group therapy brings us together despite our differences.

ABOUT ME

Biography

Thank you kindly for taking the time to read my biography. My name is Spring Berriman; I'm a Registered Psychotherapist currently practicing in Toronto.

After a successful 15+ year career in the real-estate industry, I made the choice to pursue my true passion, that of helping others. The most personally rewarding aspect of any job I held during this time in real-estate - be that as office manager, executive assistant or operations manager - was that of supporting others in the workplace, thereby fostering strong working and interpersonal relationships, and helping my colleagues to realize their best selves.

As a deeply compassionate therapist, I believe strongly in creating a safe space for mutual growth, wherein cohesion and alliance advance the therapeutic processes of healing and development. With avid curiosity and respect, we’ll explore the innermost workings of your mind, heart and spirit. I believe in taking a client-centered approach to my practice, acknowledging you as an individual and working as your pace dictates.

Without preconceived agenda, I'll work alongside you holistically in seeking your truth. In addition to Individual Therapy, I also offer Couples Therapy and Group Therapy. I also offer Psychotherapy sessions via Doxy.me - much like Skype or Facetime, but secure - for those who are prevented from attending in person.

My office is located at Main and Kingston Rd. in the Upper Beaches. I invite you to contact me in order to begin your journey.
