Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
Youth & Adult Therapist
Hello, my name is Nick Eakins (he/him), and I am a Psychotherapy Intern at Valley Connections Counselling in Dundas. I am completing my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University and hold an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and Classical Studies from Queen’s University.
I offer client-directed services and take a collective approach to counselling. My aim is to support and encourage each client along their own journey to self awareness in a way that is adaptive, authentic, and free of judgement. Trusting in the power of the therapeutic relationship, I affirmably accept my duty to listen intentionally, to express empathy and unconditional positive regard, and to offer appropriate, compassionate, and responsible clinical guidance. I draw from evidence-based theoretical approaches such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solutions-Focused, and existential psychotherapy, to inform a collaborative examination of personal valuations and recognised strengths, and to effectively implement realizable strategies.
My eclectic work and life experiences reflect a wide array of interests and a genuine passion for meeting people, with diverse backgrounds and from all walks and stages of life. I am interested in working with adolescents, adults and couples, and welcome clients from the LGBTQ+ community. If you would like to explore ways we might work together, I would be happy to address any questions you may have or to schedule an initial consultation.
