People seek therapy for many reasons. Therapy can help clients to:
Our Clinical Psychologists provide short and long-term individual therapy for adults. They work from an integrative psychodynamic framework, which means that, in addition to alleviating symptoms, the focus is on understanding the meaning and message of those symptoms in the context of the client’s history and current circumstances. Understanding repeating patterns in life, which often develop from past experiences, can help clients make new choices in future. Where indicated, our psychologists also incorporate elements of other therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and mindfulness approaches.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, adjustment to life changes and stress, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, loss, relationship difficulties, chronic medical conditions, and personal growth and development. They aim to develop a therapeutic relationship that feels safe, empathic, and collaborative, and through which emotional exploration and change can take place.
