PSYCHOTHERAPY

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

With CBT, clients learn to connect their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Typically, CBT is conducted over the course of 12-20 sessions. CBT has been proven effective for those with anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sleeping difficulties, and many other mental health concerns.

Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

DBT combines CBT with other techniques for emotional regulation, distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindfulness. Typically, DBT is offered over the course of 6 months to a year in individual and group formats. DBT is particularly helpful for people who have pervasive suicidal thoughts, self-harming behaviour, mood disorder, substance abuse and disordered eating.

Emotion-Focused Therapy

EFT is a structured approach to couples, families, or individuals and is based on research on adult attachment and bonding, as well as object relations, combining experiential Rogerian techniques with structural systemic interventions to help foster deeper self understanding and care, self-regulatory capacity, as well as to effect positive change within relationships. EFT can either be short term (8-20 sessions) or longer term if required.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy helps family members better resolve conflicts by improving communication among family members.

Play Therapy

Play therapy can be utilized as a structured or unstructured modality that employs a range of play and creative arts techniques to help explore a child’s internal world so as to alleviate psychological distress and emotional issues that underlie behavioural and relationship difficulties

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy aims to increase a client’s awareness of how their past influences their present feelings, thoughts and behaviours. With young children, psychodynamic therapy often takes the form of play therapy.
