My Areas of Expertise
I Can Also Help With
Hi! I’m Valérie English and I’m a doctoral candidate at the University of Montréal, in the adult Clinical Psychology program. I’ve completed all my clinical training, and I’m in the final stages of completing my research. I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, and humanistic therapy. I specialize in helping clients overcome depression, anxiety disorders, conjugal violence, traumatic childhood experiences, self-esteem, and personal growth.
I also specialize in issues related to pregnancy and obstetrics, such as helping pregnant mothers and new moms, overcome things like anxiety, depression, marital problems, pregnancy ambivalence, attachment issues, grief and loss, trouble conceiving, miscarriage, abortion, and grieving men.
Finally, I also specialize in helping medical patients overcome difficulties related to traumatic events, serious injuries, or illnesses such as cancer.
My approach to therapy is integrative, in the sense that I incorporate approaches from several scientifically-validated therapies, according to the client’s needs. My main objective in therapy is to work collaboratively with you, identify your struggles and objectives, and to find with you – through discussion – solutions that will fit with your personality and values. It’s important to me that I cultivate an open therapeutic atmosphere that is warm and free of judgment, where you feel safe to explore topics that are important to you, so you can get to know yourself better and work through struggles. It would be a pleasure for me to meet you, to get to know your unique situation and to help you on your path to greater psychological well being.
