Terry Lindberg, M.Ed., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 3C5 - Nearby to Balzac.

Creating healthy patterns of communication and setting effective boundaries within a family structure (biological family, blended family, extended family) can greatly reduce conflict and create a stronger connection between members. I work as an impartial observer and can assist families with the tools to reduce unhealthy conflict and increase respectful dialogue.

My main emphasis in family therapy is for me to avoid ‘labeling’ clients with diagnostic/psychiatric names. Labels does not promote healing but yields potential ‘pathologizing effects,’ for example, calling blaming/labeling my client as a ‘drug addict.’ Instead, I help families to heal their relationships. My approach is not to encourage criticism/blaming on one or more family members as the causer of ‘dysfunction’ in their relationships—instead I ask how they feel about their concerns and what they see/believes to be the problem/issue in their families. Because of my approach, one client reported that she felt there was no further need to become critical of her partner.

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Balzac.

I believe strongly that human beings are naturally designed to form close connections with others. Emotional difficulties can often be linked back to challenging relationships with those closest to us. I help to facilitate discussions that support individuals to appropriately deal with the issues that are negatively impacting the family's functioning. By examining how the family as a whole interacts and understanding those problematic communication patterns, change can be fostered. Through an open and supportive counselling environment, family members develop compassion and connectedness that allows for the healing of past pain.

In family therapy it's important that everyone is heard, and all are considered worthy of being listened to. Often a single person may made be the stool pigeon for everything "bad" that's happening in the family. Democratic approaches are maximized in Dr. Val's approach. A family is a system and each part of that system affects the whole. If we're riding a bike and the chain falls apart, is the chain to blame? There was likely some neglect of care before that chain fell off, or/and ignorance as to how to maintain that bike. These are my thoughts on family therapy.

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Balzac.

Families are the foundations from which individuals launch their lives, and the safe haven in which we live our lives. Sometimes, families get a bit off-track or forget the gentle arts of forgiveness and positive regard for each other. The ways in which we communicate both our needs and our caring impact our experience of family. I can help you improve communication, learn effective and respectful ways to resolve conflict, and strengthen connections inside your family.

Family Therapist

Mervin Van der Spuy, DTh-Counselling, BSc-Pharmacy

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Balzac.

If you or a loved one are struggling with a diagnosed mental health condition such as anxiety, bi-polar disorder or depression, it is probably putting the whole family under pressure. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside and help families understand and cope as a unit. Often family members are unsure how to deal with their family member’s treatment needs; sometimes they place pressure on them to stop or start medication; other times they struggle to keep their loved one compliant in taking the medication. A family session with Dr Mervin will not only inform on these matters, but will also help you manage the family dynamics surrounding it.

All families have times when tempers flare, feelings get hurt and misunderstandings occur. Family therapy can help when everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents, start to escalate and impact family harmony. In addition, family therapy can help in addressing mental health concerns that impact the family, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues. I can help you and your family communicate better, work through conflicts and maintain positive connections.

Registered Psychologist

In T3C 0X7 - Nearby to Balzac.

Every family has their own way of doing things and although there can be moments of harmony, sometimes bonds can be disrupted and people require help to become reconnected. In family therapy, clients will learn to explore their own needs while strengthening and maintaining connections to family members. Much of this work includes acceptance, release, listening and awareness.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Cory has had over 15 years of practice doing family therapy using many different models including systemic theory, structural theory and strategic models... To name only a few. Not only has Cory been working with families for an extensive period of time but has been able to apply many of these skills to his own family/children. Cory's general belief is that although the complete family is preferred, family therapy can be done with only one or two individuals as long as we can impact change from just one source.

Your family may be struggling to achieve balance in a rapidly changing and often troubled world. Your family could be complex, and often, it is intergenerational. Some families have confused boundaries & could be disengaged, balanced, or enmeshed. Families in stress could find it challenging to cope with birth, graduation, marriage, separation and divorce, remarriage & illness or death. Change at some level is inevitable & some families are more resilient than others. Contributing factors to distress include poverty, a lack of education & training, unemployment, underemployment, past trauma, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation & the like. We offer you a family therapy that combines theory and direct practice experience from thirty years of connecting with families.

Families have great impact on the development of children and influence their entire life. Families have a natural status quo and each member has a specific role to play. Often we are unaware of the roles existing in families, although we eventually see the effect. I believe healthy communication that address these underlying patterns and have a goal towards wholeness, are effective in increase health for all involved.

The success or failure of the attachment bond formed with our primary caregivers affects us as adults. People who grow up believing their needs will be met are resilient and able to remain focused, relaxed, and creative in challenging situations. People who grow up without such expectations will fear conflict, and will not trust themselves in conflict situations. Relational therapy and attachment theory informs my work in family therapy. I believe that a healthy family life involves an open and reciprocal sharing of affection, feelings, and love.
