My name is Ajay Erasmus and I have my Bachelor in Arts in Psychology and Communication and am currently in process of completing my Masters in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. My passion is to see people thriving in life by being able to fully engage with themselves, others, and the world, in manner that is authentic and fulfilling to them. I do not simply see counselling as helping people who are struggling to cope, but to transcend coping towards a full life where people are able to live their life in a meaningful and fulfilling manner.
My approach to counselling is personalized and collaborative. Every person is unique and brings their own set of thoughts, feelings, and experiences to their experience of life. I work to alongside the person I am helping to find their unique position towards their experience and find where they would like to go to live the life they want to live. My therapy style is influenced by the certification and training I have in existential, experiential, and trauma-informed therapies but my work also includes cognitive-behavioral techniques.
Types of issues I work with include:
- Identity Issues
- Relationship Issues
- Existential Issues (Meaning, Purpose, Fulfillment, etc.)
- Men’s Issues
- Marriage Counselling
- Crisis & Life Transition
- Eating Disorders
