What Is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is the use of psychological tools to help improve mood, gain better control of emotions and help create healthier coping mechanisms to overcome undesirable behaviours. It can help with problems such as: anxiety, depression and addiction, as well as other types of problematic patterns of behaviour that can interfere with quality of life, work and relationships.

What can I expect in my therapy sessions?
In the first session we will discuss your reasons for coming to therapy or questions that you may have about therapy in general, and we will come up with goals that we may want to work on during therapy. We will discuss relevant historical information such as family history, relationships, major life events, and ways in which you have coped with stressors throughout your life. In subsequent sessions we will revisit some of these themes and work on ways to integrate coping skills into your day-to-day activities so that they may become second nature.
