BC residents…please check out my personal website:   www.sylviapeske.com

 

I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Canadian Psychological Association. I completed my doctoral degree through the University of Alberta’s Counselling Psychology Program. I have offered therapeutic services to the community of Spruce Grove, Parkland County and surrounding areas since 2010, and because of the growing demand, I established a sacred journey psychological services inc. in 2014. I am grateful for my role as a Director of a counselling practice where additional qualified clinicians extend their services to our community.

I no longer reside in Spruce Grove, but I am happy to continue to offer therapy to the community through secure ONLINE video conferencing. Video sessions work well in situations where travel or other circumstances make it physically difficult to attend in-person. I offer services from a cognitive-behaviour approach with a specific and direct method that attempts to help clients neutralize, balance, and clear mental, emotional, and physical symptoms and/or reactions, and to help clients discover the underlying hidden order governing daily chaos.

I offer my therapeutic services in a one-on-one workshop format. This unique approach is short-term and has been designed to get specific about your needs and get right to work on those needs to help clear or reduce your emotional triggering. My individual one-on-one workshops are packaged to ensure you get the most out of our interactions. You can read more about them here: Individualized Workshop Handout

I never want you to feel like you cannot contact me directly, so if you have any questions or would like to consult with me before making a decision to begin services, please call or email me. Saying hello does not mean you have to commit to anything. I am happy to answer any questions you have about me, therapy, the process, etc.

In fact, your process starts with a complementary 30-minute initial consult. In the initial consult, we discuss your individual needs, including what you want to achieve in therapy, my workshop approach, workshop packages for your unique needs, and of course, we will ensure that we will be a good fit for one another. No commitment to therapy is needed for the initial consult or thereafter. You can take as much time as you need to decide if you would like to pursue services and select a workshop package. 

Should you choose to proceed after completing your initial consult, we schedule your Discovery Session. At this point, I will send you the information needed to complete an online consent form for therapy. This form is necessary for us to begin services and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. We will review and discuss important aspects of this form in person together at your Discovery Session. You will also have ample opportunity to ask questions or seek clarification of anything. 

 

To book your initial consult, please call 780-960-1616 

How do the workshops work?
Each workshop begins with a Discovery Session. During the Discovery Session, we will review consent form issues and/or concerns; review your history in detail; define specific therapy goals; and define a hierarchy of triggers to address in the workshop sessions. This session prepares us for your therapy and the work to be completed in your chosen workshop. We compile a list of important therapy issues to address and schedule your workshop times. We complete what I call a Focus Form so that together we have a clear map and direction to maximize your therapeutic success. 
We then get to work in our workshop. We use our previously defined hierarchy of therapeutic issues and I implement a specific method that includes a series of specific questions to help you clear your emotional and/or mental challenges. Throughout the workshops, we check in on how we are meeting your therapeutic goals. We can shift, change, or redefine anything along the way. 
The therapy process is easy enough; however, nothing comes from nothing. Inherently there is a balance of pleasure and pain in life. Working through your challenges in the workshops requires you to confront your fears, pains, and grief in order to obtain relief. However, the way I see it is that if you are currently longing for relief in your life, you are already experiencing levels of pain and grief. Why not take charge and consciously face the pain and grief directly so that at least you have the power to achieve relief instead of just hoping that relief will magically appear? This is how the workshops can help. You can learn as I guide you through the pain and grief by asking the right questions so that you can achieve relief and move forward with living your desired life.
