Steve Mundy approaches his work with an unwavering faith in, and respect for, the infinite wisdom and mystery of the unconscious processes that guide our lives and protect us as children. However, Steve understands that as adults some of these processes may become cumbersome and self-defeating, and he views his role in the therapeutic relationship as one of helping his clients discover and gently relax those defensive structures that have outlived their usefulness.
Steve is a graduate of the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (Toronto) and has been working with clients for seven years. His approach is psychodynamic and intersubjective; the success of the therapy will rest on the strength of the working alliance. Kindness, empathy, patience and curiosity as well as a broad and comfortable grasp of current theory are among Steve's assets.
Despair does not always yield to introspection, reflection, or fretful worry. Our demons, so to speak, must often be spoken into view, preferably in collaboration with an other, someone with an ear for this very specific kindness of listening. Together, we will seek illumination; and with illumination, hope.
