Caroline Rosta, MSc, MA
Registered Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor, safeTALK Trainer & Consultant
Cultivating wellbeing in individuals and teams through partnerships & collaboration, "realness" and care.
My expertise and my passion lay in understanding and helping people to live their best lives. Every client is different and I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach; instead, I will work with you to create a plan to address your unique needs and goals. I have a toolbox of therapeutic interventions, systems of change and skills to bring to clients and my overall approach is based on respect and partnership.
As a counsellor and psychotherapist I work with diverse people in Canada and overseas to help them develop the insight, skills and sometimes new perspectives that lead to greater fulfillment and wellbeing.
I believe in the possibility of healing, change and transformation. I know it can be difficult to reach out for help and to shift engrained patterns or thought/emotion/behaviour or entrenched ways of doing things in organizations. Sometimes, what has "worked" in the past can be "upgraded" now to meet changing needs and goals. I help client to develop new ways of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating that brings them a lasting and sustainable sense of fulfillment and greater ability to manage challenges as they arise.
In clinical supervision, I help other therapists develop their own practices as we explore issues of a clinical, professional and practical nature that impact the therapeutic process.
My decision to train groups in suicide awareness and prevention stems from a conviction that we all have a role to play AND we can all help prevent suicides with the right training.
My work as a consultant stems from a conviction that people are at the core of businesses and institutions and that wellness and equity go hand-in-hand. I bring expertise in wellbeing promotion and wellness planning that enriches workplace relationships, augments employee investment and boosts productivity.
My diverse clients inspire me and broaden my understanding of what it means to live in this world from different perspectives; I am so honoured by the trust they show me on a daily basis to help them move towards their goals. I believe that how we are treated and how we treat others impacts wellbeing so I keep issues of equity, diversity and inclusion in focus.
My work is underpinned by a solid knowledge-base including two master's degrees and up-to-date research and skills. I engage regularly in professional development and have expertise in a range of therapeutic modalities and systems of change. This strong foundation helps me to work with clients to clearly identify and assess needs and create custom plans to move towards identified goals.
I welcome everyone with a desire for healing, wellbeing and transformation.
