At ReLearning Human, we provide online therapy to support you through the challenging and painful experiences of life while cultivating a deeper understanding of what it means to be human — and what it looks like to be human for YOU.
You’ve tried therapy before. You didn't connect with the therapist. You felt judged or misunderstood.
You believe you’re not good enough or worthy of love and never will be.
You can’t stop focusing on the things you think haven’t done right, replaying them over & over.
You hide behind a facade so that other people think you’ve got it together.
You've achieved so much and still you wonder if you'll ever truly be happy.
Rather than approaching your feelings with compassion and curiosity, you judge yourself, try to escape what you're feeling, and seek someone who can “fix” you.
But we've been taught that we should be a certain way and that we have to be changed in order to have the life we want. Has this worked? Has it felt right for you?
If not, it might be time to try a new approach. It takes tremendous strength to acknowledge your emotions and the behaviors they lead to. We honour the courage that has brought you to this space. We welcome you to keep moving forward and we're here to help.
Here's the thing —
You don't need to be “fixed” because there isn't anything wrong with you.
We are highly trained online therapy professionals but YOU are the expert of your own life, not us. You teach us about you and we listen and help you find a bit of peace in all the noise.
listening to the expert
We’ll teach you how to calm the fight or flight response that keeps you in a chronic state of stress. When you perceive a threat you can’t respond with clarity.
Work with a therapist who can hold space for ALL of your feelings without trying to change them, brush off what you're going through, or give you a one-size-fits-all fix.
Find a sense of safety in your skin with body-based techniques. This helps you stay grounded so that you can tolerate and understand what you’re feeling.
We're dedicated to finding what works for you, including...
what to expect when we work together
Therapy like life isn’t meant to be comfortable. And we’re here for it. It looks like you might be too. That's probably because you know something isn’t working. Even though you can’t quite put your finger on it (or words to it), you know something is there. Something that previous therapy hasn't been able to reach.
If you’re feeling unsure about moving forward but you’re STILL here, then we’re getting somewhere.
We know that to make meaningful change, we have to focus on both what’s happening in your mind and what’s happening in your body.
Through the development of body awareness and healthy coping tools, you CAN cultivate a sense of safety in a constantly changing world. Let's face it, life is full of challenges and it’s our job to help you manage whatever may come.
While we are trained professionals, we aren’t the experts in your life – YOU are. We are here to help you cultivate compassion and curiosity as you discover the healing that’s waiting for you in the places you’ve been afraid to look.
So why try again?
Because at ReLearning Human, we do things differently.
Our team of online therapists in Ontario has been curated with individuals who are like you, human. We don’t have this whole life thing completely figured out and won’t pretend that we do. But we’re committed to doing the beautifully messy work that’s required to fully embrace the human experience. When you join us on this journey, we won't judge you for being who you are.
Starting therapy can be scary. We don't expect you to immediately feel safe sharing the parts of yourself you’ve been afraid all your life for someone to see. It takes time to cultivate trust. But if you show up, we will too – fully.
It’s our hope that eventually you will come to see that we’re with you on each step you decide to take. Because we too are committed to relearning what it means to be human.
Humans first. Therapists second.
We invite you to schedule a free 15-minute call with one or several of our therapists to choose one that you feel comfortable(ish) with.
Building trust with a new therapist often takes time so it’s okay if you don’t feel safe and comfortable right away. Our goal is that over time, you and your therapist will build a foundation that allows you to do meaningful work together.
