Individual Psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy is the process of using scientifically validated techniques and procedures, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and other therapy techniques, to explore personal difficulties, concerns or feelings that could prevent you from living a full, meaningful, happy, healthy and productive life. Psychotherapy is a one on one collaborative process between you and your therapist. By working together, you will identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best and reaching your full potential. Individual psychotherapy is grounded in dialogue and will provide you with a supportive, nonjudgmental, neutral and objective environment where you can share openly and overcome destructive or problematic thoughts or behaviour patterns. Psychotherapy will not only help you solve the issue at hand, but will also teach you new skills to better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future.
