Insight Psychological Therapists - Veronica Campbell Ramos

Veronica Campbell Ramos, Practicum Intern Therapist, (She/Her)

I am someone that is very compassionate, kind and curious. I love to learn about different cultures and work with people from all backgrounds. I believe that everyone has the inherent right to choose and to live a wholehearted life that’s fulfilling and abides by their own personal values. One of the greatest things about being human is that we are never alone, we are all together in our shared humanity of feeling and being alive. We have all reached points in our lives when we need help and keep moving forward. My goal is to help clients explore what’s really going on, accompany them through their healing path and regain their own purposes and meanings in life that makes them feel alive again. Let’s hope, struggle, heal and grow together.

More About Veronica Campbell Ramos

I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from the University of Alberta. I am currently working towards completing my Masters of Counselling Psychology degree from City University of Seattle’s Edmonton Campus. I am originally from Mexico and have been living in Canada since 2011. Psychology has always been a passion of mine and helping others is something that I strive for in my daily life.

I work based on an eclectic approach with an emphasis on client-centered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT is primarily focused on how maladaptive core beliefs influence how we feel and behave with ourselves and others. Our goal will be to reframe those beliefs and replace them with healthier thoughts that would foster adaptive skills to be able to manage future struggles. I work with adults and young adults to work through issues that prevent oneself from achieving their full potential for happiness and for a wholehearted life. I have a special interest in working with individuals who come from a culturally diverse background.

Now, I realize that therapy can be tough; it does requires allowing oneself to be vulnerable, open, and honest and create a trusting relationship with another. One of my main goals is to be able to develop a relationship with my clients based on these qualities and work collaboratively to strengthen and empower others to regain their inner resiliency to change their lives.

A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS

What is your favourite quote?

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

What do you think the world needs more of?

I think the world needs more compassion, acceptance and understanding. Nowadays, society is bombarded with information, knowledge, and opinions that it could get difficult to know our own minds. If we can just learn to slow down and listen to our inner voices, then we can truly connect with ourselves, to our own self-compassion and eventually move towards acceptance and true knowledge.
