Mental Health Outpatient Program

Counselling Services

Counselling services aim to provide evidence-based psychotherapy to client’s on a one-to-one basis to help resolve distressing symptoms or problems in coping. Counselling services may be provided by a social worker, spiritual care specialist, psychological associate, registered psychotherapist or psychologist.

If counselling services are required we aim to match the client to the most appropriate counselling stream based on their mental health need and their ability to engage in specific treatment.

Focused Therapy

Focused therapy is psychotherapy to help clients to work towards their goals to increase their wellness and quality of life.

Focused therapy utilizes multiple therapeutic approaches including but not limited to solution focused therapy, strengths based therapy, narrative therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.

Comprehensive Therapy

If the client and the Decision Guide agree that the treatment issue requires a more involved approach to psychotherapy, clients are transitioned to Comprehensive Therapy, which offers:

Comprehensive Therapy Team

The Comprehensive Therapy Team utilizes a variety of individual and group psychotherapy approaches including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, specialized trauma treatment, and treatment groups intended to address such issues as depression, anxiety, and grief.

Comprehensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Program

The Comprehensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Program is for individuals with extreme emotion dysregulation (e.g., mood lability, suicidality) and behavioural dysregulation (e.g., self-harm, substance use, aggression, eating difficulties, impulsivity). Individuals accessing DBT may also be experiencing interpersonal dysregulation (e.g., conflict/tension in relationships, dependency, sensitivity), cognitive dysregulation (e.g., rigidity, rumination, difficulty concentrating), and self-dysregulation (e.g., fluctuating sense of self, lack of purpose in life, emptiness, and low self-esteem.

Comprehensive DBT involves participation in weekly individual therapy and weekly group skills training for a minimum of 6 months. Clients are expected to attend all sessions and complete homework between sessions to work towards their goals.

Spiritual Care Psychotherapy

Spiritual Care Psychotherapy works to assess and treat the clients in the context of spiritual and religious needs.

Services include individual and group therapy, with a focus on addressing bereavement and loss.
