Experience Change with Behavioral Therapeutics


Treat your mental health as you would your physical health...after all, this is your overall health and one blends into the other. However, we still tend to value our physical selves over our mental by prepaying for gym memberships and recognizing regular maintenance is key to optimizing our health. You may be surprised at how one can benefit from doing the same with your emotional well being.

Life Skills & Counselling Consultation

Person-Centered Therapy

This approach enables the client to come to terms with negative feelings, which may have caused emotional problems, and develop inner resources. The objective is for the client to become able to see himself as a person, with the power and freedom to change, rather than as an object.
This therapy focuses on the whole of the client’s experience, including feelings, thoughts and actions.  The client gains self-awareness in the `here and now’ by analyzing behavior and body language and talking about bottled up feelings.

Divorce Mediation/Child-Centered Model

Why Mediation?

  • Separating and divorcing couples have the opportunity to control the decisions that affect their lives

  • Children and family members benefit from decreased conflict

  • Mediation is less costly than litigation

  • Communication and cooperation is promoted by mediation

  • Mediation facilitates effective negotiation

  • Mediated agreements are often met with more compliance

  • Family matters– in separation and in family business - are resolved without the divisiveness created by court systems. Families must continue to function with some contact due to kinship ties.


Family Mediation

Family mediation is a process in which a third party (trained mediator) assists separating couples, families, and family businesses to develop solutions to a variety of presenting issues. The mediation process can enhance cooperation and communication which facilitates the development of personalized oral and/or written agreements.


Mediators

Mediators are professionals with specific training in mediation who come from a variety of backgrounds such as law, social work, psychology and conflict resolution. 


Common Issues Addressed By Family Mediation:

  • Divorce and Separation

  • Mediation Reports

  • Family Business Plans

  • Multi-party family issues

  • Adult children of aging parents (planning)

  • Adoption

  • Parenting Plans, property, financial


Mediators have expertise in developmentally sensitive parenting plans where infants and young children are involved.


Pre-Mediation Sessions

Interested parties may book an individual pre-mediation session. The individual session helps the mediator to assess safety and comfort of the parties and the ability of each person to negotiate on their own behalf.

All parents attend an individual session initially and then they attend joint sessions thereafter.

Behavioral Therapy

ADHD/ODD/DMDD/ANXIETY

Children who have Autism, ADHD and Behavioral Disorders (Early Adolescents and Teens) can receive a broad range of therapies. Typically, they include a combination of behavior therapy, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy and social skills training. In addition, parents should receive training on how to work with their children at home. Ideally, parents, teachers and therapists will all work together to integrate their approaches across the child’s daily life. When behavioral therapies are not enough to curb harmful behaviors, the family may want to discuss other options, such as adding medication, with their child’s doctor. It’s crucial that this discussion – and the highly personal decision that results – include consideration of benefits balanced against side effects.

Our interventions are gentle, respectful.

The methods we use are grounded in our philosophy of embracing and celebrating neurodiversity, respecting every individual, nurturing growth, and building on each person’s strengths to overcome challenges.

Behavioral Therapies seek to identify and help change potentially self-destructive or unhealthy behaviors. They function on the idea that all behaviors are learned and that unhealthy behaviors can be changed. The focus of treatment is often on current maladaptive behaviors and how to change them.

Employee and Family Assistance Programs” (EFAP) 

Several local employers will pay for short-term counselling services for their employees under “Employee and Family Assistance Programs” (EFAP). Such services may include counselling, training, assessments, and workshops. Please check with your employer.

EFAP programs are designed to help employees and their families deal with issues that affect their life. Personal problems and work stress can result in increased absenteeism, lower productivity and work place conflicts. We can offer help that will get struggling employees back on track. This results in a more stable workforce and increased productivity on the job. We can also offer proactive programming to preserve employees’ wellness such as Lunch and Learns to educate them on workplace issues. Talk to your employer about setting up an EFAP to cover your counselling sessions.
