Our counsellors use a broad range of therapy approaches, including:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)
Existential Therapy
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Relaxation Techniques
Assertive Communication Training
Psychoeducation
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Is a form of psychotherapy that is based on the idea that the way we think and feel affects how we behave. CBT helps you to identify unrealistic thoughts, evaluate whether they are reasonable perceptions of your situation, and, if they are not, use strategies to overcome them. CBT works by identifying realistic and unrealistic thoughts about a situation, shifting negative or unreasonable beliefs, and taking actions to support productive ways of thinking and acting in your daily life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Is an action-oriented type of psychotherapy that helps you to accept the emotions that go along with the difficulties in life and take actions toward your goals. You commit to stop trying to control and avoid your emotions and, instead, start practicing more confident behavior that aligns with your values and helps you to move toward your constructive goals.

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)

Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) concentrates on finding solutions and exploring your hope for the future to help you resolve problems. This goal-oriented method looks at times when problems aren’t actively affecting you, and takes the approach that you have useful information about what will improve your life and, with the appropriate coaching and questioning, are capable of finding and using the best solutions for you.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy designed to diminish negative feelings associated with memories of traumatic events. EMDR focuses less on the traumatic event itself and more on the disturbing emotions and symptoms that result from the event. The goal of EMDR is to fully process past experiences and sort out the emotions attached to those experiences. Negative thoughts and feelings that are no longer useful are replaced with positive thoughts and feelings that will encourage healthier behavior and social interactions.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy focuses on choice, self-determination, and the search for meaning and often centers on you rather than on the symptom. The approach emphasizes your abilities to make rational choices and to develop to your maximum potential. The goal: You learn to make preferred decisions about how you live, drawing on creativity and connection, instead of letting outside events determine your behavior.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

Is a form of cognitive therapy that integrates mindfulness practices such as meditation. Using these tools, MBCT helps you to look at automatic thoughts and focus less on reacting to them and instead accepting and observing them without judgment. This helps you to break away from the effects of negative thought patterns and move toward more awareness and coping.

Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques can help you to manage stress and anxiousness, and can involve a wide range of strategies including grounding, breathing, and meditation techniques.

Assertive Communication Training

Assertive communication training helps you to strengthen relationships and reduce stress. It can include strategies for mediating conflict and exploring collaborative problem-solving to support getting your needs met and win-win outcomes to situations.

Psychoeducation

Is an evidence-based therapeutic intervention that provides information and support to better understand and cope with challenges. Psychoeducation teaches problem-solving and communication skills and provides education and resources in an empathetic and supportive way.
