psychotherapy and counselling
Trying to build a family can bring with it high levels of social, emotional, physical and relationship stress. This stress may affect many aspects of your life including your ability to become pregnant. Fertility counseling can help you manage these stresses as well as help you to sort through the choices and decisions to make on your journey to being parents.
grief & loss counselling
Losing someone, something, a baby, a pregnancy - is very painful. Even the loss of a potential future often will trigger feelings of grief. Healing from loss is a highly personal and individual process and experience. A counselor can help you navigate these stages of grief to help you heal.
Having a baby can be very stressful no matter how much you have planned, anticipated or love your child. The baby blues are normal but if these feelings intensify or don’t go away after a few weeks you may have postpartum depression. PPD can interfere with your ability to take care of your child and yourself so getting support and counseling right away is important in returning to a happy motherhood.
therapy for children
Our experienced social workers and psychotherapists see children for a variety of reasons including: traumatic life events such as the death of someone close to the child, bullying, divorce, behavioural concerns, sleep problems, anxiety and depression. Children experience and express emotions differently than adults, and therefore the approach needs to be tailored to each child's needs. Our therapists understand these unique needs and have specialized training in communicating with them in ways that are accessible to each individual child.
therapy for adolescents
Adolescence is a challenging and difficult transition period. Struggles often arise with regards to anxiety, depression, body image and eating disorders, self-esteem, anger, relationships or simply with not feeling like oneself. In order to optimize and improve an adolescent’s mental health, individual counselling for teens in conjunction with emotion coaching for parents may be beneficial in providing strategies to successfully identify and voice the thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with their experience.
therapy for adults
Are you currently experiencing difficulties with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, social awkwardness, phobias, body image and eating disorders, anger, stress or are struggling with regards to parenting, relationship, self-esteem, trauma, grief or loss? If so, seeking counselling services combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) strategies and interventions can assist you in understanding and overcoming these mental health concerns and issues.
