Individual Therapy​

  • Individual therapy is a form of therapy in which the client is treated on a one-on-one basis with a therapist.
  • The most popular form of therapy, individual therapy may encompass many different treatment styles including psychoanalysis and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
  • Individual therapy allows the therapist and client to focus on each other, building a rapport and working together to solve the client’s issue.
 

Group Therapy

  • A form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time.
  • It is usually a complement to individual therapy and sometimes medication as well, although it may be used as a stand-alone treatment for certain issues or problems.
  • The simple experience of working in a group provides excellent opportunities to socialize, practice new behaviors, and experiment in a safe environment.

Couple Therapy

  • Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family.
  • It can be used to help a family through a difficult period, a major transition, or mental or behavioural health problems in family members.
  • Family therapy can employ techniques and exercises from cognitive therapy, behaviour therapy, interpersonal therapy, or other types of individual therapy.

Grief & Loss

Grief is not limited to feelings of sadness. It can also involve guilt, yearning, anger, and regret. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. They can also be confusing. One person may find themselves grieving a painful relationship. People in grief can bounce between different thoughts as they make sense of their loss. Thoughts can range from soothing (“She had a good life.”) to troubling (“It wasn’t her time.”). People may assign themselves varying levels of responsibility, from “There was nothing I could have done,” to “It’s all my fault.” 

Workplace

People spend nearly one third of their adult lives at work, and workplace issues are a common source of stress for many. It is impossible to have a workplace where everyone’s roles, expectations, and personalities work perfectly together, without conflict. As such, certain workplace issues may cause negative psychological symptoms.

Workers may find discussing their workplace stress or challenges with a trained mental health professional is helpful to them both professionally and personally.
