Psychologist in Vaughan, Ontario - Providing Counselling and Psychotherapy Services 

Welcome to Our Psychologist Clinic - November 2023 Calls for New Beginnings With Counselling and Psychotherapy! 

marriage-bottom vaughan-counsellingI am writing this message to those who are struggling to reach out. As we embark on closing out the summer it is important that we look at ways to reset from the hustle and bustle of what summer tends to bring. A reset may include setting new goals, making behavioral changes, or making new commitments. One technique we use to help people with change is Motivational Interviewing which helps clients explore and resolve ambivalence and reluctance to change problematic behaviours. Discussing change in therapy can be incredibly powerful. It can help a client come to realize that change doesn't require as much effort as they think and that small changes can be made right away to help them make progress in their goal. We can help with commitment and help process reluctance. This is what we are trained to do, help people make changes in their lives so they can be their best selves. Remember, things do not change, we change. 

Let us work together to find out how we can get you there. Having someone by your side to help you reach your goals can make a world of difference. Find out how a psychologist can help.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Complex Anxiety Program

Massage-ArticleOur clinic has trained extensively to provide the York Region community with treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and anxiety disorders. We work by helping introduce our clients through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). We introduce our clients to concepts that will help clients better understand their OCD. We also provide them with carefully chosen exercises to help decrease their anxiety through the use of exposure. We do this by first working with the client on reducing rituals and then walk them through exposures. The cognitive work helps them better understand how inconsistent their OCD actually is and we better prepare our clients through the use of educating them on cognitive distortions that keep them stuck in the OCD cycle.

Anger Management -  Psychologist Facilitated -  Serving Vaughan, and the rest of the Greater Toronto Area

Our program is designed to help individuals understand how to control their emotions and be able to assert their needs, without damaging their interpersonal relationships. Our program is recognized judicially (court-approved). The program is Psychologist developed through the use of Cognitive Therapy. The program is one-on-one and designed specifically for the individual. The program speaks to the purpose of anger, its intent, and how anger can be used appropriately. We look at specific strategies of regulating emotions and helping and work to assist our clients in implementing them into their lives. We use a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy combined with dialectical behavioral therapy. The tools utilized will help our clients develop stronger and more effective regulation skills, which in turn has helped them improve their relationships. Sometimes anger can also be influenced by some of the stressors a person may have in their life. The more stress they have, the less patience they will have and the more likely they are to find themselves dysregulated (angry or upset). Having the right tools in your pocket to help you get angry will only further help you progress to have the life you want. We just need to teach them to you and it's up to you to put them in practice. Find out how our Vaughan clinic can help you!

Vaughan Counselling 3Professional

We are proud of our reputation of providing quality counselling services in our
Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) gives priority to the emotions experienced by the people (family member or partner) attending the session. Evoking the primary emotions, while managing stirred up compelling responses, helps the couple (or family) better organize themselves and aids each person in responding more congruently with each other.

Our goal is to create a safe, egalitarian relationship with our partners. Emotional responses are shaped and constructed so each couple can feel safe when expressing themselves. We teach our couples how to respond in this way on an ongoing basis. Couples are taught to recognize that much of their behaviours are influenced by social learning and each of them participate in a ‘cycle’ that keeps them stuck from successful conflict resolution.

EFT meta-analysis studies suggest that 70-73% of couples describe themselves as recovered from marital distress and 90% report having significantly improved after treatment. EFT has also demonstrated success across cultures and social classes.  

Many relationships experience difficulty with conflict and excess negative emotion.  Being apart of a high-conflict relationship is exhausting and often leaves both partners feeling frustrated and miserable. Research suggests that being in a high conflict relationship can lead to increased rates of depression, anxiety and substance abuse.

Our goal at our clinic is to identify variables that may influence the dysfunctional communication you and your partner experience. Together, we will work with you in developing goals for treatment and ensuring you are on the right path to success. We do this by monitoring progress session-by-session and providing guidance every step of the way.

Our clinic will only teach you research supported communication skills and techniques. You will be exposed to material that will help you assess your own communication style (both healthy and unhealthy) and how to effectively use your new knowledge in best practice. We also help our clients learn how to listen and respond empathetically, use appropriate guidelines for decision-making, and teach skills to help deescalate a situation.
