We all deserve to be fully listened to and our emotions understood, but many of us do not receive this in our personal lives. Psychotherapy is a professional, trustworthy, and growth-fostering relationship where you are the centre of focus. Therapy is an excellent place for you to dedicate one hour each week to better understanding your thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and your needs. It is really the best self-care you can do!
We all hit low points in our lives and face adversity that can seem unbearable. At times we all need a hand in getting back on track and skills for moving in a different direction.
Psychotherapy can provide an effective and fulfilling way to help rebuild a sense of well-being, improve relationships, and increase capacity to cope with all the unexpected things that life can bring. Psychotherapy can guide you to achieve greater self-awareness, self-reliance, and empowerment in your daily life.
Psychotherapy is a regulated and licensed health profession in Ontario, with the passage of the Psychotherapy Act, which received proclamation on April 1, 2015. Psychotherapists receive specific training that is evidence-based and practical. We are governed by specific codes of ethics and bound to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) to protect your privacy and ensure confidentiality.
