APPROACH TO TREATMENT

Kenny is compassionate and uses a holistic approach to work with clients, including Gestalt therapy, expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy. He believes that we only live in the present moment because the past is gone, and the future is not here yet. He supports clients with gaining an awareness of their experience in the moment, become who they are, and processing their challenges in the here-and-now. Change occurs not when the person tries to be other than he is and what he thinks he should be.
