Providing Psychotherapy and Counselling services for anxiety, in person at our office in Burlington and virtually online across Ontario.
Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed where your worries and fears consume your thoughts and interfere with your daily life. Even making daily decisions can be difficult, especially when sitting, focusing and concentrating aren’t even possible. This can then lead to feeling frustrated and exhausted. And then, though you’re exhausted, sleep isn’t possible with the relentless racing thoughts, what-ifs, and over critical evaluation of the day’s events, conversations, and “should’s”.
Daily, you struggle with not feeling good enough even when you push yourself to be your best.
While some anxiety is needed and important in keeping us safe in our lives; too much anxiety can leave you feeling exhausted, alone, and not enjoying things you used to do.
No matter how anxiety is showing up in your life, you are at a point where you are looking for help in managing and finding relief from your symptoms.
You want to feel more in control of your thoughts and emotions so that you can live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Counselling for anxiety is best for those who want to gain insight into their thoughts and emotions and find ways to manage their worries. Through counseling, you can work with a trained professional to identify the root causes of your anxiety and develop strategies to cope with and reduce your symptoms. This can help you feel more in control of your thoughts and emotions and begin living a more restful and happier life.

Book a free 15 minuted consultation call.
If you are interested in seeking therapy to help you overcome anxiety, we encourage you to reach out to us for a free 15-minute consultation. During the consultation, we will answer any questions you have about our practice and our psychotherapists, and help you determine if we are the right fit for you. We believe that feeling comfortable with your therapist is essential for a successful therapeutic relationship.
Investing in yourself is an important step towards finding the happiness and fulfillment you deserve. By seeking therapy and working with a trained professional, you can get to the root of the problems you are experiencing and find solutions that are tailored to your unique needs and goals. Together, you and your therapist will work on healing old wounds and developing healthy coping strategies to help you move forward in a way that feels authentic and fulfilling.
During this initial 50 minute session, you will meet with your therapist to define the psychotherapy relationship and discuss the details of informed consent.
Your therapist will gather information about you and your biological, psychological, and social history and how this is impacting your current situation. Together you will define the goals you have going forward.
Commit to at least to 4 weekly 50-minute sessions (either in person at our Burlington office or virtually online across Ontario).
We find that clients who cannot commit to at least 4 weekly sessions tend to have more difficulty in establishing a relationship with their therapist and often sessions consist of recapping the previous weeks instead of focusing on forward movement and their treatment goals.
We are a team of skilled registered psychotherapists with a goal is to help you achieve deep and lasting change by getting to the root of your struggles with anxiety.
We believe in the power of therapy to help people overcome challenges and live fulfilling lives. Regardless of the cause, anxiety can be debilitating with overwhelming worries and fears that consume your thoughts and interfere with your daily life.
