Couples Therapy

At some point, most relationships will get strained. There are many reasons for this. External factors like major life changes (e.g. financial state, physical health etc.) and the influence of other family members or internal factors like insecure attachment, arrogance, jealousy, anger, greed, poor communication/understanding or problem solving, can have a profound influence on the interaction between the two partners. Couples Therapy attempts to improve romantic relationships and resolve interpersonal conflicts by focusing primarily on the process of communicating. Couples begin by engaging in “active listening”, a method of communicating designed to create a safe environment for each partner to express and hear each other’s feelings.

 

Family Therapy

Family therapy or family counselling can help family members improve their communication, understanding and collaboration with each other and resolve interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents.

Group Therapy

Therapy groups usually consist of 6-8 members with one or two trained therapists. The group members share their stories, interact with each other and provide constructive feedback in a safe space. Groups act as a support network where you can put your own problems into perspective. A key advantage of group therapy is that the other members can often assist you to gain awareness into a difficult situation, propose solutions and even hold you accountable if necessary.

If you experience initial anxiety or discomfort over the idea of talking in a group setting please keep in mind that this is a common feeling for many people who come to group therapy for the first time and do not know what to expect.  Group members usually feel comfortable enough to interact and share with the rest of the group within the first couple of sessions.

Groups work best if there is trust and honest communication between group members. Members agree that the content of group sessions is confidential and that they do not identify other members or their concerns outside of the group.

Parents Counseling

Even though becoming a parent can be very rewarding it is not without its fair amount of challenges. Parenting counseling is a short-term therapy that involves the use of psychoeducation as a tool to provide the necessary support and knowledge to parents without the fear of judgement. The main objectives are to facilitate the parent's involvement and relationship with their child, explore ways to reduce inappropriate and enhance positive child behaviors so that the parents can eventually find on their own the appropriate strategies to help their child overcome any future difficult situations or behavioral concerns.

Psychoeducational Lectures - Seminars - Workshops

Psychoeducational lectures focused on providing information to the general public in an effort to eliminate barriers of the healing process such as judgment, fear, shame, and denial while providing an easily accessible way for people to better understand and cope with a wide range of psychological issues. Experiential workshops facilitate personal development through the enhancement of several life skills (such as problem-solving, communication, interpersonal skills etc.) and ultimately provide the necessary tools that encourage psychological self-help.
