Relational Psychology honours the relationship between client and therapist as an integral part of the healing process. It focuses on the themes of mutuality, connectedness, and empowerment. Through this co-created process of evolution and healing, client and therapist work closely together to help the client overcome their addictive behaviours.
MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY
Marriage and Family Therapy is psychotherapy specifically focused on family and family systems. This may be done with an individual or with multiple members of the family. Marriage and family therapy helps to understand the dynamics within a family and all the ways in which family members affect one another. It exposes imbalances and dysfunctions, while offering opportunities for growth, cooperation, and functionality within the family system.
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is a well-established type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behaviour patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
CHILD AND YOUTH THERAPY
Approximately 1 in 5 children and youth in Ontario have a mental health challenge. About 70% of mental health challenges have their onset in childhood or youth. That’s why early identification and intervention is so critical and can lead to improved achievement in school and better health outcomes in adulthood. We work with child from the ages of 6years onwards to help them heal and reconcile any traumatic or troubling circumstances they might have experienced so that they can.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy explores and supports experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, and interconnectedness. It helps a person to understand, influence, and connect with parts of themselves that are beyond the ego level of existence, such as our relationship with the rest of mankind.
Somatic Psychotherapy is a unique approach to psychology that builds a bridge connecting the mind and body. From the Greek word “soma” (meaning body), somatic psychology understands the body as the foundation of human experience. Focusing on the embodied experience of emotions, it integrates the exploration of breath, gestures, and body awareness into psychotherapy. Following theses nonverbal (body) experiences can help access psychological and emotional material that has been previously inaccessible.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma and psychological stress. EMDR encompasses a set of standardized protocols that bring together elements from many different treatment approaches. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress; through our programs it can help you too.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to resolve the limitations of behaviour, thinking and feeling caused by trauma by using interventions that target the most basic sensorimotor level of a person’s experience as the primary entry point for treatment.
Psycho-structural integration examines the correlations between psychological patterns and postural patterns. Whenever underlying psychological issues are uncovered and altered, there are ripple effects felt in the body. For example, if a person is constantly feeling fear, they will walk around with lifted shoulders and tight muscles. By releasing the feeling of fear, the body will follow by allowing the shoulders to drop. Psycho-structural integration supports conscious development of mind-body correlations and empowers clients to sustain psychological balance by simultaneously creating postural balance.
