Welcome to SoulSpring Counselling. My name is Deborah R. Lain and I have been a Registered Psychologist working in the province of Alberta since 1983. My practice focuses on working with adult individuals and I specialize in Health Psychology.
I have strong clinical skills and would be described as a goal-oriented therapist. Throughout my career, clients have shared that what makes me unique is is the authenticity that I bring to my work. I convey understanding that is respectful, honest and compassionate. The insights that I have gained from my own experiences allow me to understand the courage that it takes to face all that life may bring. I believe in the capacity of the human spirit and it is my passion to empower others in remembering and reclaiming the value and strength that is within all of us.
If you are experiencing concerns that have their origin in the past, or challenged with issues in the present, I will offer new meaning to multiple issues and provide clarity to that which has been overwhelming. I will assist you in building bridges of understanding between the past and its' impact and relevance to the present.
If you have a challenging health condition, I will guide you to look for the symbolism and metaphor within the illness. Symptoms are powerful messages from the body that speak to the mind. Integrating mind-body principles into your healing is very powerful. You will learn how to access your inner physician and to align your body, mind and spirit.
If you are seeking balance in your life, I will inspire you to embrace a lifestyle that acknowledges the intuitive wisdom within you to faciliate profound integration and healing at all levels of your mind, body and spirit.
I have always approached my work in a holistic way, understanding that the person is infinitely more than their 'stories', whether emotional or physical. My goal is to empower you to see yourself as whole versus fragmented and separate from the core of who you are. One of my strengths is in being able to recognize what can encourage healing at every level. I am known for my insight and intuitive ability to connect deeply with people at a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual level. I bring a unique blend of humour, knowledge and wisdom to my sessions while fostering an environment of safety and trust.
I am truly honoured to be a guide on your journey toward wholeness and healing and grateful for the privilege to work with you. Together we will create opportunities to appreciate the purpose, lessons and potential gifts out of the challenges in your life.
