Philosophy of practice

Helping people change…

A philosophy of practice is indicates what is most important about the nature of man, how symptoms are formed and maintained in human behavior - as well as how best to be helpful when working with people. Focusing on people's resources and goals, rather than their pathology, is the best way to help people. Many psychiatric conditions and dysfunctional behaviors arise out of failed attempts to adapt to change, meet deeply felt needs, or solve psychological conflict. Change demands emotional resources that people often do not have, creating ambivalence about working toward their goals. This means that the process of personal change often occurs in stages as people come to understand the nature of their difficulties and learn to solve their conflicts, or meet their needs differently.

There is no question that we live in extraordinary times. With the latest requirements related to social distancing, it is an understatement to say that people’s anxiety, worry, fear and stress are at an all-time high. The delivery of mental health services has been greatly affected by new government regulations regarding “face to face interactions” within clinics, hospitals and private practices. This is creating difficulties for people needing access to mental health services during this time of crisis. To help meet this demand for easier access to mental health services, Erle has transitioned his practice to provide video, phone and e-mail consultation directly over the Internet. All technology used for our remote sessions adheres to the privacy laws and standards as set out by the BCACC and will be PIPA/PIPED compliant, offering end to end encryption and Canadian-based servers. Online sessions will take place through video using Zoom or phone/e- mail counseling. Contact instructions, privacy and confidentiality will be discussed and agreed upon during the initial consultation. Payment must be received prior to the session via e- transfer.
