NEW! Cognitive Behavioural
DBT Group to help clients change maladaptive thinking.
DBT acknowledges that there is a problem with the way clients think, but the therapist encourages clients to accept this and then helps them look at making changes so that their thinking is more balanced. It is a principle-driven therapy that includes interventions including wise mind and opposite action step by step. In our group, we will also work on building the skills of providing and accepting positive feedback from other group members and facilitators.
Wednesdays from 7-9 pm for 4 weeks.

Anxiety Group for children
AGES 6 – 12 YEARS
This group starts with positively reframing the anxiety within children as a “talent for creative worrying” and a “sensitive body alarm system”.
Each session includes skills which the children will learn and be engaged to practice during the week.
Cost: $120 plus GST
Adult anxiety group
Anxiety in adults is one of the most common mental health issues today. Instead of feeling like you can’t face the day, we’re here to show you how to reduce your anxiety. We offer new coping methods, along with emotional anxiety support.
Cost: $180 plus GST
Sexual Health & Education
Adolescence Is a Time of Change.
This 5-week sex education course is designed to help young people gain the information, skills, and motivation to make healthy decisions about sex and sexuality throughout their lives. During the teen years, the hormonal and physical changes of puberty usually mean people start noticing an increase in sexual feelings. It’s common to wonder and sometimes worry about new sexual feelings. It takes time for many people to understand who they are and who they’re becoming. Part of that involves better understanding of their own sexual feelings and who they are attracted to.
The sessions are 50 minutes, once a week for 5 weeks.
Cost: $100 plus GST
Rebuilding Your Relationship Workshop
This 10-week educational workshop helps people adjust to the ending of a love relationship. The sessions are for 3 hours, one night a week for 10 weeks. We’ll discuss the following topics:
- The Rebuilding Blocks: The rebuilding blocks give you an overview of the adjustment process when experiencing the loss of a relationship.
- Adaptation: You may have learned adaptive behaviour during your formative years in order to get your needs met. These adaptive behaviours may have become maladaptive in your adult relationships.
- Grief: Grieving your various losses of love. There is a connection between overcoming denial, grieving and disentangling from a former love partner.
- Anger: Ending a love relationship results in feelings of anger. Resolving anger allows you to find forgiveness for yourself and your former love partner.
- Self-worth: Improving your feelings of self-worth will help you move beyond pain and find the strength to grow.
- Transition: After improving your self-worth, you are emotionally stronger and ready to experience personal growth. You are ready to wake up and begin taking charge of your life.
- Openness: You have been using a great deal of emotional energy trying to be someone other than who really you are. You may choose to be free to be you.
- Love: Is it okay to love yourself? The more you love yourself, the more you can love others.
- Relatedness: The relationships that develop following the ending of an important relationship can be an important part of your growing process. You may find the friendships you make can help you grow and adjust.
- Sexuality: You long for emotional intimacy but you are afraid. Intimacy starts with becoming better acquainted and more intimate with yourself. Understanding your own sexuality, and learning more about the way others feel will be helpful.
Cost: $275 plus GST
The Defining Decade Workshop
What every 20-somethings need to know – and all Millenials – Based on the Book by Meg Jay
The vision that you want is out there, you just have to create it. This workshop is for people in their 20s and the work we do together highlights how the job market has shifted. We introduce “identity capital”, which is the collection of skills, relationships and professional resources we build up over our lives.
We discuss the feeling of failure, love, choosing life partners and how to react to negative information correctly. As young adults, many try to quit the situation or job when things get tough. We break down the why behind this need and what to do instead.
This workshop is for those who are ready to set goals for themselves and actively work towards accomplishing them.
Cost: $40 plus GST
Special Needs Workshop
If you’re struggling with getting a diagnosis for your child, or recently received one and you’d like to learn more about it, this workshop is for you. We’ll cover how to get a formal diagnosis, resources for early development, school age children and teenagers.
This workshop will also dive into developing and implementing robust individual learning plans (IEP’s) and navigating the public school system. We’ll discuss what’s offered by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, the Child Tax Credit and the Child Care Subsidy.
