The mind is probably one of the most complex entity. As such, psychological counselling and treatment for a particular set of problems will necessarily be driven by ongoing assessment of a child’s or an individual’s subjective needs and experience. This therapeutic process is highly individualized, from a moment-to-moment perspective, leading to meaningful change in psychological experience and generation of strategies. Our clinic has a specialty in psychodynamic and humanistic orientation, with strong skills in integrating strategies from other modalities such as cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, and mindfulness.
Initial Consultation: All treatments will begin with an initial consultation to assess and diagnose the presenting concerns with a psychologist. It usually requires one to three sessions of clinical interviews and, if relevant, completion of appropriate standardized psychological tools.
Treatment: Length and frequency of treatment vary depending on a number of factors, such as the complexity of presenting concerns and the individual/family’s particular circumstance and needs. Meaningful work can be accomplished with varying frequency, ranging from weekly to monthly, over a brief duration or longer term engagement.
Typically, the best outcome is achieved through working collaboratively with the client, addressing the unique nature of each person’s struggles. When working with children, working with the parents and families is often an integral part of the therapeutic process.
