My Perspective on Therapy

Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson), believes in being present and compassionate with all clients. Dr. Dadson states, “with a welcoming environment, we create a space for healing and growth. I have a deep belief in humanity’s capacity to find real life resolutions to their emotional injuries and challenges. Research has shown that this happens best when we have access to understanding, support, respect and skilled therapeutic interventions.”

Dr. Dadson works hard to make counselling services comfortable because taking that first step to seek help can sometimes be the hardest.

My practice is guided by the following principles:

  • All people possess intrinsic worth and have the capacity to realize this.
  • All individuals are worthy of respect.
  • My therapy space is one of acceptance and safety.
  • Gender, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, relationship and family status pose no barrier to the therapy process.
  • Everyone has the ability to change; readiness depends on each individual.
  • Clients take responsibility for their gains in counselling and for their personal successes; the counsellor’s role is that of guide.
  • Understanding comes first. If we jump prematurely to tools and strategies, clients are left with generic, depersonalized interventions.
  • Most people benefit from counselling at some point in their lives. This includes counsellors too! At its best, counselling is a healthy dialogue that identifies, promotes, and mobilizes clients’ strengths to reach personal goals.
