Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy or counselling, is a professional relationship that helps you improve your mental health and achieve your goals. Therapy normally takes the form of a guided conversation between you and your chosen therapist. Working together, you may develop skills and strategies needed to effectively manage difficult thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, allowing you to navigate any challenges and find inner strength.
Our therapists bring a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens to everyone they support, working first and foremost to ensure you feel safe and heard.

In the event of an emergency, it’s crucial to seek help as soon as possible. The Talk Suicide Helpline is available 24/7 to provide support and resources.

In the case of an immediate danger to yourself or others, calling 911 should be your first course of action.
Your therapist will start by getting a thorough understanding of your background, your mental health history, current struggles, and goals. They will then develop a personalized therapy plan to meet your needs. Your therapist may work with several therapeutic approaches and figure out what resonates the most with you. During your sessions, your therapist can help you work through repressed emotions, reframe situations in your life, and develop coping strategies.
Therapy helps to get to the root cause of struggles. It has been shown to improve emotional and psychological well-being and is linked with positive changes in the brain and body. About 75% of those who try psychotherapy benefit from it.
Anyone over the age of 11 can be seen by our therapists.
We have an expert team of psychologists, psychotherapists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical counsellors, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners, and psychotherapy interns who provide therapy services.

Your therapist will likely recommend a treatment plan with a set number of sessions. How frequently you will need to attend therapy and how many sessions are needed will be based on your goals and the challenges you’re experiencing. It’s important to note that your therapy journey is completely your own - some people choose to continue therapy consistently for mental health maintenance, others may choose to do therapy only when they need to work on a specific issue.
No, you do not need a doctor’s referral for this appointment. You may optionally choose to have your doctor refer you, but this is not required.
