If you think you can benefit from CBT, make an appointment with us. Our social worker will screen you for eligibility and then you may begin your weekly sessions with the therapist.

What is CBT?
CBT, or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, is a common form of evidence-based psychotherapy. It is practical, structured and short-term (usually up to 20 sessions). It focuses on the thoughts, attitudes and beliefs related to your problematic emotional and behavioural reactions.You will learn life-long skills and strategies that you can use to master and manage your own life.
CBT is a collaborative effort between you and the therapist. Yes, in fact there is “homework”. In order to maximize the benefits, you need to put in effort outside of sessions as well!
