Just like we go to our dentists and physicians to improve our physical and oral health, getting mental health counselling can help improve your mental health. Taking care of physical, emotional, and mental health is a healthy recipe to improve the overall quality of your life. But what can mental health counselling help with? When people engage in mental health therapy, they can gain the following benefits:

  • Improve self-acceptance & self-esteem

  • Gain skills to change bad habits & self-deprecating behaviours
  • Increase the ability to manage stress & anxiety
  • Improve overall mental & emotional health
  • Expand awareness of your emotions
  • And more!

Frequently Asked Questions

The most important thing to consider when looking for a therapist is how comfortable you are speaking with them. It’s perfectly normal to speak to a few different people before finding the right fit. It’s important you the patient is as comfirtable as possible when discussing your mental health with a professional.

Gone are the days of patients lying on couches! Most sessions are very casual and can either take place online in the comfort of your own home or in our office. We encourage our patients to take lead on their session and discussing what’s been bothering them.

Confidentiality is a very important and complex part of our practice. In short, our sessions are covered by doctor-patient confidentiality, however there are specific circumstances that are not covered by this confidentiality. This is discussed with all of our clients during their first sessions.

This is a very complicated question and varies from patient to patient. Our goal is to create a realistic plan, goals and tools to help manage your mental health. The frequency of meetings can range from weekly and biweekly session to monthly or quartly sessions. Everyone is different when it comes to therapy, and with that comes their own unique timeline.

Although both terms are traditionally used interchangeably, there are differences. Counselling usually refers to shorter term treatments designed to target a singular, short-term issue. This could include issues in several areas, including emotionally, mentally or relationally.

Therapy on the other hand, is traditionally designed for long-term talk therapies and are designed to treat, “delivered through a therapeutic relationship, an individual’s serious disorder of thought, cognition, mood, emotional regulation, perception or memory that may seriously impair the individual’s judgement, insight, behaviour, communication or social functioning” (as described on the CRPO website).
