People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying ‘Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner’. I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” – Carl Rogers

Cheyenne Ling

Through my own experiences and healing journey, I recognize that entering the therapeutic environment may be a daunting experience and acknowledging that we need help can be challenging. Thus, my utmost goal as a therapist is to create a safe space where you can be honest, open, and vulnerable. To cultivate this safe space, I draw inspiration from the teachings of Carl Rogers. Embracing his belief that individuals are the experts of their lives, I strive to establish a genuine, non-judgmental, and empathetic relationship that fosters a sense of security. Within this space, you can openly communicate your challenges, develop a heightened self-awareness, and uncover your own effective solutions. I hold a trauma-informed lens, acknowledging and being attentive to the impact of traumatic experiences on individuals’ emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. I also align with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), where we collaborate to identify and change unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviours. I am committed to entering the therapeutic relationship with cultural humility, employing an open, curious perspective, and appreciating lifelong learning about each individual’s unique identity.
 
As for a bit about me outside of counselling, I enjoy running in nature, yoga, learning about psychedelic-assisted therapies, meditating, and spending time with my family, friends and dog.
