Kimberley Cochrane, MA, RP, dipTIRP, CEC, CAPT

Registered Psychotherapist (RP) - Integrative, Relational Somatic Therapist for Individuals & Couples

6633 Highway #7 (at Ninth Line), Markham, Ontario

I'm a relational psychotherapist. So while I know that you feel bad inside, I also see that a lot of those bad feelings - worry, low self-esteem, fear of failing - exist at the boundary or interface where you meet the world. They're relational feelings as well as self-feelings. They sound like: "Am I good enough? Have I made a mistake in their eyes? Do they like me? Am I in trouble?" When you feel that the answers to these questions are negative, then you feel badly about yourself, in yourself. Relational psychotherapy helps you understand yourself in relation to others and will contribute to an overall sense of well-being, wellness and completeness in who you are.

Many ask about the difference between counselling and psychotherapy. In practice, they are the same thing – both are types of talk therapy. The difference is that counselling is what people usually receive when they are in need of some immediate support (grief and loss, sudden unemployment, relationship break-up, or any other type of personal crisis). Psychotherapy usually focuses on providing the person with longer-term solutions rather than immediate support. In psychotherapy, the client is looking to get deeper insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. In my practice, I provide both counselling and psychotherapy services, depending on the client's current goals.

There are many things which cause us distress and prevent us from achieving our preferred quality of life. These can include a variety of feelings, thoughts, beliefs, reactions, confusion, past or present situations, etc. You can more easily think about, and choose, your preferred ways of living, by getting clear about what's going on, how you're being affected, and your usual responses. I delight to help in this kind of process: it can be a way of making things which are invisible, visible; things which are unspoken, clear; even things which were un-thought of, possible.

Registered Psychotherapist

10211 Yonge Street, Ste. 206, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Many of my psychotherapy clients indicate their psychotherapy experience to be very positive. I strive to provide a safe atmosphere where you will feel free to share your thoughts and feelings and life experiences. Together, we first explore the early roots of your situation to see where any early influences are continuing to affect you in your present day living and relationships. We also see where the real self may have been blocked or held down from self expression. The work assists in the recovery of the Real Self, which many indicate feels like clarity and liberation. In addition, the current issues that require treatment be they relationships, work, family, are also dealt with.


Nidhi Gupta, R.I.H.R, Dip. BSc (Hons), RPc

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

600B Magnetic Drive, North York, Ontario

Psychotherapy is the process of clearing out the debris of your past, in order to live a more fulfilled present to create a bountiful future. I believe we have to sit in the muck of our past before we can see the wisdom of what we went through, so we can create our personal alchemy or gold from our past. I explore feelings, emotions, limiting beliefs, values, perceptions and guilt and shame and past traumas, that are keeping you 'stuck' in your current ways, and not allowing you to raise your sense of self and be aware of your deep need for a new way. I provide hope and light for change and transformation to occur.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

People often come to therapy to get rid of painful and difficult feelings. Rather than getting rid of our feelings, therapy is a skilled process of helping us understand ourselves so we can use our feelings to navigate our lives. Even the very painful feelings hold vital information for us to become sure-footed in our life. Just like in martial arts, we use the momentum of the attacker and redirect it to ensure our safety ; in therapy we use the information from the painful feelings to clarify what we need to create more safety in our lives so we can thrive. It is a valuable process of allowing our feelings to work for us to create satisfying joyful lives.

I suspect you are reading this because you are wanting to understand yourself more and because you know you have some healing to do! Perhaps a close friend or relative has lovingly suggested (or maybe not so lovingly?!) that you need to get working on your issues, the things that are interfering with you moving forward into more satisfying relationships with others, yourself and God. After almost 30 years of counselling individuals and families, I still count it a privilege to be able to help people make sense of their unique story and to find ways to grow and change and become the person they were meant to be! I would be delighted to help you!!

Sylvia Sikakane, BSW, MA, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker: Individual, Couple and Family Therapist

6633 Highway 7 East, Suite 203, Markham, Ontario

I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy that enhances client resources and resilience, self-exploration and self -discovery. This approach uses the relationship with clients as the foundation of care and a vehicle for change. Together we identify problems, and develop mutually agreed-on set of goals. I believe that clients know best what they need and have the skills to change. Using best practices in psychotherapy I leverage clients’ strengths. I use and extend the skills they are already proficient in as the basis of intervention so that they can take on the challenges and areas of weakness. Clients come away empowered with effective and well-developed skills they can use to overcome interpersonal and personal relationship challenges and resolve problems.


Todd Hayen, PhD, RP

Registered Psychotherapist

50 Wellington St East, Aurora, Ontario

I am a transformative and depth psychotherapist. This means that I look beyond the symptoms in order to assist my clients in discovering a more meaningful and fulfilling way to cope with life's inevitable dips and conflicts. It does little long lasting good to treat only the consequences of deeply ensconced processes that we have little knowledge of. While working with me, my clients and I go to where the root cause of their issues reside and gently and safely observe them and understand them with the ultimate goal of gaining control over them.

Talk therapy provides an opportunity to learn skills that will keep the emotional "trash can" empty and help develop a healthy self. Healthy emotions stimulate the human fueling system promoting positive growth, strength to create solutions and manage life challenges. Maintaining a healthy emotional/spiritual system is as important to life as sustaining a healthy heart. The emotional, physcial and spiritual persons are team players in the "game of life". Each player has a specific position in the game of life and is dependant on the other players to score health and wellness. Ignoring any one of these players for too long will affect their ability to score life goals: happiness, peace.


Elizabeth Hepworth, HBA, MA, RP, OACCPP, CCPCPR


37 Sandiford Drive, Suite 412, Stouffville, Ontario

The goal of psychotherapy is to help people process a variety of different life events. My goal is to educate people on how to interpret and deal with emotion; with the expectation that the same framework can be used for several different life events. It is a time when you are 100% of the focus and meant to be an opportunity to develop a unique and accurate understanding of yourself and the value of your emotion.


Angela Colangelo, MA, RP

I integrate emotion and solution focused therapy with cognitive and experiential approaches to help my clients explore the emotions and beliefs that influence behaviour. By tailoring the therapy to each client’s needs, I ensure that we are working toward the desired goal in a positive manner that is both useful and sufficiently challenging. The objective is to gain greater self-understanding, resolve issues, and create healthier and more satisfying relationships.
