Robin Salmon, MA
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
In life, many of us encounter the complexities of change, loss, grief, trauma, sadness, fear, and the search for meaning, purpose, and direction. If you're currently navigating these experiences, you've found a supportive place. Whatever you're confronting right now, please know that you're not alone, and you don't have to face these struggles in isolation. I am here to help.
As an individual who has experienced my own history of mental health challenges, I'm intimately familiar with many of these hurdles. While these experiences can be painful and arduous, they also offer opportunities for personal growth, learning, and healing.
As a therapist at Your Road Forward, I'm here to support you on your journey, much like the lotus flower emerging from the deepest and thickest mud. There is incredible power in expressing and exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a space where you can truly feel heard, seen, and understood. I am passionate about creating this type of space for you and guiding you through a person-centered approach.
In this therapeutic journey, I honour you as the expert of your own life. Based on what I learn about you, we may incorporate elements from various therapeutic approaches, tailored to your unique needs and preferences. These approaches could include aspects of Humanism, Existentialism, Compassion-Focused therapy, Strength-Based therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Furthermore, I believe in the profound healing potential found in the body, breath, movement, play, rest, nature, spending time with children, and connecting with animals. Together, we can explore and uncover your road forward, just as the lotus flower transcends the challenges of its environment to bloom beautifully.
