Southern Ontario Counselling Centre View Specialties



Southern Ontario Counselling Centre is focused on providing the right therapist for the particular challenge you are experiencing.  It is likely that we can match you to someone with the specific skills and wisdom that will assist you with the issue which brings you to therapy.
 
Many therapists have either a Master's of Social Work, a degree that is honoured by a large number of extended health care plans.  Others have the designation of  Psychotherapist, which is a highly valued degree and comes with extensive education and post graduate training.  Either way our therapists all have graduate degrees in a counselling profession, are members of a professional governing body, and have a minimum of 5 years experience post graduation, with some of us with between 10 and 30 years' experience.  We make it a point to learn from one another and expand our areas of knowledge, skill and expertise as we grow together and individually in our profession.
 
Our play therapists work with children and are also experienced in adolescent and young adult mental health. We have therapists who work primarily with sexual issues in relationship and sexuality in general, as well as therapists who work with relationship communication and resolving conflict. In addition we have people who can support individuals at any life stage in exploring the challenges that all of us face as we grow through our lifespan and encounter new challenges. And of course if what you require is a supportive and empathetic person to help make sense of past relationships and trauma, we offer this as well.  Knowing that our pasts influence our present is a key component to understanding who we are as human beings.
 
Note that there are many different events or circumstances that bring people into a counsellor, and it is important to know that someone will be able to support the particularities of your situation.  In order to address the wide variety of needs, our therapists have a diversity of skills, in an equally wide variety of areas. You can read our therapist pages to see who might be a good fit for your particular needs, or call/email our reception to receive a personalized response in order to discuss the best way to connect and choose a clinician. 
 
All the therapists here share the value that safety and privacy, along with integrity are paramount in the therapeutic relationship.  Studies show that the relationship between client and therapist is a key component to success.  It is because of this that Southern Ontario Counselling Centre is a small professional group of individuals who share an investment in maintaining professionalism, a commitment to life-long learning, ongoing supervision and support, and the creation of a safe and welcoming environment.
