Individual Intervention and Treatment

Individual cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for anxiety

($125 per session)

Are you looking for support for a child or youth’s anxiety about specific issues or situations, such as trying new activities, speaking with others, separating from parents, needles, or vomiting? Perhaps the young person is experiencing worrying thoughts or uncomfortable feelings in their body like headaches, stomach aches, muscle aches, or feelings of panic. Our intervention services help children and youth to learn about anxiety, “face their fears” and develop bravery skills to tackle particular challenges. This service is appropriate for young people with diagnoses such as specific phobia, separation anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and selective mutism. We also provide exposure and response prevention for clients with diagnosed or suspected obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). 

Individual/group cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for emotional and behavioural difficulties

($125 per session)

Are you seeking support for a child or youth who is experiencing emotional distress or acting-out behaviours? Perhaps the young person is having difficulty coping with frustration, having verbal outbursts, or getting overwhelmed by “big feelings”. Our individual intervention services help children and youth to better understand their feelings and learn new coping strategies and problem-solving skills. We use a primarily cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) approach and may draw from other related approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) or Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Young people may have a diagnosis such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, "oppositional defiant disorder", disruptive mood dysregulation disorder, or depression. Please note that we do NOT see youth who are severely depressed or who are at high risk of hurting themselves or others. 

Individual supportive therapy for children and adolescents

($125 per session)

Is your child or youth going through a difficult time due to a recent loss, change, or difficult experience?  In this service, we work with children, youth and parents and caregivers from a variety of therapeutic approaches (e.g., solution focused; cognitive-behavioural therapy; acceptance and commitment therapy) to better understand and manage their thoughts, feelings, and/or reactions about their situation.  We provide a supportive, therapeutic process to help guide them in sharing their challenges and gain the confidence and skills they need to manage their well-being.

Academic intervention or 1-1 tutoring sessions

($100 per session)

At different times of the year, we offer individual academic intervention such as reading, spelling, or study skills group support, as well as 1-1 support for reading, writing, math, spelling, or organizational/executive functioning challenges at school.
