As a Registered Psychotherapist, Joshua Lewis is focused on supporting individuals through a therapeutic process that seeks to restore mental and emotional wellness, provides avenues for deepening one's connection to self and others, while fostering compassionate inquiry, understanding and meaning-making into the challenging experiences that often make up a human life.
Joshua employs a psychodynamic approach that is rooted in the therapeutic relationship built between client and therapist.
This model of psychodynamic psychotherapy seeks to reveal the unconscious, dynamic content of the mind, in an effort to alleviate mental tension which can manifest in a variety of symptoms that distort and disrupt our sense of self and well-being.
By uncovering the hidden roots of our unintegrated thoughts, emotions and behaviours, we can consciously change how we experience the world and ourselves.
In addition, Joshua uses an embodied, trauma-sensitive approach that may include: Relational Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Art Therapy, Somatic Bodywork, Contemplative Psychotherapy (Mindfulness-Based and Compassion-Based Therapy.)
