Therapy for children, adolescents, and adults
Individual therapy involves meeting with the psychologist or therapist to discuss your current issues or symptoms. Therapy will offer hope, relief of symptoms, strategies, and direction. Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to address many issues.

  • One-on-one therapy for children and teens: Therapy provides your child with a safe and comfortable place to talk. Your adolescent will learn strategies to cope with depression, anger, attention problems (ADHD), anxiety, divorce, and bullying. Support for parents is also provided. 
  • Group therapy for anxious teens: Teenage years are a time of change, challenge, and opportunity. Sometimes adolescence brings about anxiety (worry, irritability, panic) that can be hard to manage. Group therapy is an effective way for teens to learn about themselves, build skills, and improve their relationships.
  • Individual counselling for adults: Therapy helps you if you are struggling with worry, stress, depression, trauma (PTSD), or longstanding issues. Therapy provides you with strategies for coping with upsetting thoughts and helps you to prevent problems from returning in the future. Psychological counselling is also helpful for people recovering from an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
Psychological and Psychoeducational Assessments
Psychological assessments help to identify your symptoms, issues, and strengths. Assessments provide a diagnosis, plan for treatment, and recommendations for living well.

  • clinical assessment is completed to understand and diagnose your psychological symptoms. It will help you to develop a plan for getting better. Diagnostic assessments identify depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
  • Psychoeducational assessments are carried out to identify learning, emotional, behavioural, or attention problems at school. The results of this assessment may be used to begin an Individualized Educational Plan for your child.
  • Rehabilitation assessments assist in understanding your psychological issues related to an injury or disability.
  • mental health screening is a check-up of your psychological health. This check-up will help you to identify and address issues before they become unmanageable.
  • Independent psychological examinations are completed at the request of your lawyer or insurance company to determine the nature and severity of your psychological issues.
Acquired Brain Injury and Post-Concussive Syndrome
  • A survivor of an acquired brain injury (ABI) can experience depression, mood swings, and problems coping that can be helped with psychological counselling. Some survivors also experience difficulties with difficulties with concentration, planning, self-awareness, and impulsivity following an ABI. 
  • Concussion: Most people fully recover from a concussion. However, some people experience lingering problems. Psychological services will provide you or your child with strategies for dealing with irritability, anxiety, and depression following a concussion.
  • Caregivers of loved ones who have suffered an ABI can benefit from psychological support. The stresses of managing a loved one’s medical recovery can be exhausting. The losses and changes following a family member’s ABI can lead to feelings of despair. 

 

Sport psychology
  • Performance: If you or your child is seeking skills for improving performance on the rink, court, or field, consultation with the psychologist will be helpful to you. You will learn strategies for playing at your peak. You will learn ways to relax your mind and body. You will also learn how to handle frustration or anxiety while performing.
  • Return from injury: After an injury, psychological consultation will help you if you are worried about being re-injured or worried about performing at your peak. Psychological services will also help you if you are feeling down or unmotivated after an injury.
  • Exercise: Exercise is a key ingredient to healthy living. Psychological consultation will help you to set and execute an exercise plan, including sticking with it.
