Psychotherapy, Counselling, and Supervision Services
- BURLINGTON and ONLINE -
Why choose Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is based on a therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. It focuses on helping you identify thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that interfere with your life. Through psychotherapy you can learn new skills, challenge unhelpful thoughts, and process difficult emotions. My primary role as a psychotherapist is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive space for you to be heard and understood. My other role is to guide you through the challenges and provide you with the tools, resources, strategies, and insight you need to make personal changes happen. Together we find ways for you to understand and change interfering thoughts, emotions, and behaviours so that you can go back to doing the things you love.
Why choose Counselling?
Counselling Interns are completing their Masters in Counselling Psychology training and are working towards their requirements to become Registered Psychotherapists with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
Counselling is also based on a therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor. The counsellor will work with you to help identify thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that interfere with your life. By providing this support they can then implement strategies and tools that will help you make personal changes happen. We offer this service to provide opportunity for reduced rate mental health services for individuals who do not have benefits or coverage - see Fees for more information.
