Child & Adolescent Treatment Services

“Our mission is to help people improve and maintain their mental health through research-supported methods of psychological assessment and treatment. We value inclusivity and respect the unique and diverse nature of individuals.”

We have a number of psychologists who are highly-experienced in working with children and adolescent populations.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  is a rigorously researched evidence-based psychological treatment for a wide variety of problems. CBT is based on the theory that thoughts, mood, and behaviours are all related. In therapy your child or adolescent will learn how to identify and reframe inaccurate and unhelpful thoughts and beliefs that contribute to emotional difficulties and problematic behaviours. CBT therapists also help clients plan and then implement strategic changes in behaviour which serve to reinforce healthier thinking patterns, break unwanted habits, and contribute to improvements in physical and emotional well-being.

CBT is a short-term evidence-based therapy that is used in treating a vast array of psychological difficulties (see Commonly Treated Problems). CBT is goal-directed, structured, oriented in the “here-and-now”, and focused on skill-building. It is typical for CBT to involve completion of tasks between sessions to work on implementing skills learned in therapy into one’s daily life.

We also offer Parent Management Training to help parents learn to effectively address their child’s challenging behaviours, and Family Therapy to resolve any relational problems within the family unit.
