Psychotherapy is offered at our clinics in downtown Toronto. We are also providing this service virtually for the ease and comfort of all clients.
Psychotherapy is proven to increase your happiness, improve your motivation and help you to better understand yourself and the world around you. Therapy will help you to manage your stress, reduce your anxiety, and will assist you in setting goals for the future. In working together, a psychotherapist can help you to explore and identify your emotions and patterns of thinking and bring a new perspective to the challenges that you are experiencing. Psychotherapy can also assist you in developing new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing and develop the tools needed to lead a successful and fulfilled lifestyle.
What to expect from Psychotherapy
Though the decision to begin therapy can be a difficult one, it is also one of the most beneficial decisions that you can make for yourself.
Psychotherapy at Integra Health involves the regular meeting of two individuals—therapist and client—with the joint goal of exploring and understanding the client’s difficulties, questions, emotions, memories, and desires.
There is a broad range of reasons why people choose to enter therapy, but generally it is because something in their life is troubling them.
* Note: During COVID-19, virtual care is being offered to anyone in Ontario
