What we can help you with

Types of Therapy


Anxiety and depression are complex and often interconnected mental health challenges that can significantly impact an individual's well-being. Anxiety is characterized by excessive worry and fear, while depression involves persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness. Both conditions can manifest physically, emotionally, and cognitively, affecting daily functioning and interpersonal relationships.

Divorce & Infidelity

Divorce and Infidelity represent significant challenges within the context of romantic relationships. Divorce is often resulting from a combination of factors such as communication breakdown, irreconcilable differences, or unmet expectations. Infidelity, on the other hand, involves one or both partners engaging in extramarital affairs, leading to breaches of trust and emotional pain. Both experiences can be emotionally taxing, causing profound upheaval in the lives of those involved.


CBT-I, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, is a structured program designed to address and overcome insomnia by targeting thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs related to sleep. It includes cognitive therapy to change negative thought patterns, behavioral therapy to modify sleep-related behaviors, education on sleep hygiene practices, and relaxation techniques. 


Trauma refers to an emotional or psychological response to an event or series of events that are distressing or harmful. Traumatic experiences can be diverse, ranging from accidents and natural disasters to interpersonal violence and abuse. The impact of trauma often extends beyond the initial event, affecting an individual's mental, emotional, and sometimes physical well-being. Common responses to trauma include feelings of fear, helplessness, or horror, as well as symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and heightened anxiety.

Couples Counselling

Designed to help couples navigate challenges and improve the overall health of their relationships. Whether facing communication issues, conflicts, or a sense of disconnect, these forms of counselling provide a neutral and supportive space for partners to express themselves and work towards shared goals.  Through collaboration and open dialogue, couples counselling and marriage counselling can empower individuals to strengthen their bonds, build resilience, and navigate the complexities of partnership.


Retirement marks a significant life transition where individuals cease employment and transition into a new phase, often associated with changes in lifestyle, routines, and personal identity. While retirement can bring the promise of newfound freedom and relaxation, it also poses challenges such as adjusting to a different daily rhythm, redefining one's sense of purpose, and managing potential financial concerns. It's common for retirees to grapple with a shift in their sense of identity, as their roles and routines tied to work evolve.


Grief is a natural and complex emotional response to loss, encompassing various feelings such as sadness, anger, confusion, and even relief. Grieving is the process individuals go through to cope with and make sense of that loss, which can be triggered by the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a significant life change, or even the loss of a job.  Grief counselling acknowledges that everyone experiences loss differently and at their own pace, emphasizing the importance of self-compassion and patience during this challenging time.

Self-Esteem/Self Confidence

Self-esteem and self-confidence are essential components of mental and emotional well-being. Self-esteem refers to the overall opinion individuals have about themselves, encompassing beliefs about their worth, abilities, and value. Self-confidence, on the other hand, is the belief in one's own abilities and judgment. Through a combination of self-reflection, goal-setting, and skill-building, individuals can enhance their self-esteem and cultivate a more positive and resilient sense of self.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can have significant physical, emotional, and psychological impacts on individuals involved. In counseling, addressing the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident often involves recognizing and processing the trauma associated with the event. Emotional responses may include anxiety, fear, depression, and even symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Counselors work with individuals to navigate the emotional aftermath, providing a safe space to express feelings, address trauma-related symptoms, and develop coping strategies.

Chronic Diseases

Receiving a new diagnosis for a chronic disease can be an overwhelming experience, impacting an individual's emotional and mental well-being. As a counselor, addressing the psychological aspects of this diagnosis is crucial. Clients may grapple with fear, uncertainty, and grief as they adapt to the realities of living with a chronic condition. Counseling offers a supportive space to process these emotions, explore coping mechanisms, and develop a resilient mindset. Collaboratively, counselors and clients work towards acceptance, adjustment, and the cultivation of a positive perspective amid the challenges associated with a new chronic disease diagnosis.

Adult ADHD

ADHD counseling is a therapeutic approach focused on supporting individuals diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It includes psychoeducation, skill development, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to address emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal challenges associated with ADHD. The counseling process may involve social skills training, goal setting, and the introduction of mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Tailored to individual needs, ADHD counseling aims to empower individuals to develop coping strategies, improve self-regulation, and enhance overall well-being.

Treatment Methods/Techniques

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapeutic approach that focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The fundamental premise of CBT is that our thoughts influence our emotions and behaviors, and by identifying and modifying negative thought patterns, individuals can bring about positive changes in their feelings and actions. In CBT, clients work collaboratively with therapists to recognize and challenge distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns that contribute to emotional distress. The therapy often involves setting specific, achievable goals, learning and applying coping skills, and gradually changing behavioral patterns. CBT is effective for a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety disorders, depression, phobias, and stress-related conditions. It is typically a short-term, goal-oriented therapy that empowers individuals to develop practical skills to manage and overcome their challenges.

Narrative Therapy

Narrative Therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on the stories people tell about their lives and how these narratives shape their identity and experiences. Developed by Michael White and David Epston, this approach considers that individuals construct their realities through the language and stories they use to interpret their lives. Narrative therapists work collaboratively with clients to explore and understand the influence of these stories, emphasizing the separation of the person from the problem. The therapist helps clients re-author or reframe their narratives, promoting alternative perspectives and empowering them to view their challenges in a more constructive light. By deconstructing and reconstructing personal stories, individuals can gain a greater sense of agency, resilience, and the ability to make positive changes in their lives. Narrative Therapy is often utilized in addressing a range of issues, including relationship difficulties, trauma, and personal identity concerns.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented and time-limited therapeutic approach that concentrates on identifying and amplifying existing strengths and solutions rather than delving into the client's past. Developed by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, SFBT is known for its focus on the present and the future. Therapists and clients collaborate to explore times when the issue was less severe or absent, uncovering exceptions to the problem. This brief and practical approach aims to help individuals find solutions quickly and effectively, making it applicable to various issues and settings.

Emotionally Focused Therapy

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a therapeutic approach developed by Dr. Sue Johnson that prioritizes emotions and attachment in relationships. Applied mainly in couples therapy but adaptable to individuals and families, EFT focuses on identifying emotional needs, understanding negative interaction patterns, and fostering secure emotional connections. The therapy involves stages such as de-escalating negative cycles, restructuring emotional responses, and consolidating healthier patterns. By creating a safe space for clients to express and explore emotions, EFT aims to strengthen relationships, improve communication, and establish secure attachments.

Mindfulness (Level 3 Practitioner)

Mindfulness therapy integrates mindfulness principles and practices into therapeutic interventions, emphasizing present-moment awareness, non-judgmental observation of thoughts and emotions, and the cultivation of mindfulness in daily life. Through techniques like mindfulness meditation and the integration of mindfulness into various activities, individuals develop coping strategies and a more balanced relationship with their experiences. Mindfulness therapy has proven effective in addressing conditions such as anxiety and depression, promoting overall well-being and resilience.
