Insight Psychological Therapists - Morganne Stubbs

Morganne Stubbs, Registered Provisional Psychologist, MACP, BSc, (She/Her)

I embodied a person-centred approach through my previous experiences with peer support and the Edmonton Distress Line. People know the most about their situation, and I feel blessed to join them on their journey as we navigate issues while also focusing on their strengths and brainstorming potential solutions. I have experience with children, adolescents, and adults ranging from suicidal thoughts to stress management.

More About Morganne Stubbs

How I realized I wanted to be a support for people was initially through my experiences at the University of Alberta’s peer support centre. I was humbled to be a part of people’s journeys as they navigate complex issues. From there, I joined the Edmonton Distress Line to be able to listen to and support people through different topics. In both roles, the strength of each individual I interacted with astounded me.

I enjoy theories based on gestalt theory and existentialism. In addition, I am interested in further learning about sex therapies, Gottman couples therapy, and play therapy.

Everyone has different coping strategies, and that is okay. For myself, they tend to revolve around my dog, being outside and reconnecting with nature, swimming, and playing interactive video games (World of Warcraft, Stardew Valley, and Rimworld).

What quick advice do you have for people who are really struggling?

When spiralling, it can be helpful to reconnect with our bodies and environment. One way is through grounding exercises such as 5-4-3-2-1.
