“We repeat what we don’t repair.”
According to the College of Registered Psychotherapists, “Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Registered Psychotherapists work with individuals, couples and families in individual and group settings. Psychotherapy occurs when the Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and client enter into a psychotherapeutic relationship where both work together to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they have thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day lives, relationships and the ability to enjoy life.”
Our psychotherapists are trained to use cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques. We will work with you to identify and process your issues so that you may develop healthy coping mechanisms. Together we will look at how you think and work at replacing problematic thinking and maladaptive behavioral patterns that contribute to your substance use and puts you at risk for relapse.
With guidance the client can learn to identify the relationship and influence of automatic thoughts and underlying assumptions of problematic feelings and behaviors. These issues are key in relapses and can be overcome with positive coping mechanisms.
