Holistic, Client-Centered Therapy & Support.
Collette MacDonald and The Growth Group® assume a holistic approach to therapy that considers the emotional, cognitive, physical, mental health and spiritual needs of the client.
Our client centered approach ensures we are working with individuals according to your style, preference and capabilities. The Growth Group® does not expect you to fit into our frame of reference and do things our way.
On the contrary, we respect that each person is a unique individual with very personalized issues and ways of addressing them. For instance, although we may be addressing addictions with two different clients we do not use the same approach with both of them. We recognize that they each have their own past, beliefs, values and perceptions that are as unique to them as a fingerprint is.
