Centre For Interpersonal Relationships

Registered Psychologists, Therapists, Counsellors

267 O'Connor St., Suite 600, Ottawa, Ontario

Psychological treatment involves a comprehensive assessment and evaluation of current psychological symptoms, and psychotherapy that addresses the root causes of a specific psychological disorder. Research affirms that individuals do improve as a result of psychotherapy, particularly when they are committed to the process. In an initial session, your mental health professional will work with you in a collaborative fashion to identify treatment goals. He or she will also collect basic demographic data, obtain your consent to the treatment you are to receive, and inquire as to any questions you may have about the course of treatment that has been discussed.

Jane Langmaid, M. Ed., RP

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, Ontario

What i think is most important in individual psychotherapy is safety - that I have my "stuff" sufficiently together to be a safe sounding board, and have walked further along the path, and therefore am able to empathize and understand where the client may be on his/her journey. That nothing is too shameful to talk about. I will use a variety of approaches from my toolbox to help individuals focus on their issues. My goal is for clients to leave sessions feeling important issues have been identified, wounds are being healed, patterns are being identified, and that they have a stronger sense of who they are, what they want. Actions will start to reflect this new awareness.

Gerald Joy, RSW, RMFT, CD

Clinical Social Worker and RMFT

53 Shouldice Cresent, Kanata, Ontario

Psychotherapy is most successful when the individual enters therapy on their own and has a strong desire to change. If you don’t want to change, change will be slow in coming. Change means altering those aspects of your life that aren’t working for you any longer, or are contributing to your problems or ongoing issues. It is also best to keep an open mind while in psychotherapy, and be willing to try out new things that ordinarily you may not do. Psychotherapy is often about challenging one’s existing set of beliefs and often, one’s very self. It is most successful when a person is able and willing to try to do this in a safe and supportive environment.

Psychotherapist

Michelle Bentley, MA, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Family Therapist

2948 Baseline Rd #206 , Ottawa (Nepean), Ontario

I welcome you to consider psychotherapy with its in-depth approach to counselling. Together we build a trusted relationship that supports you in considering perspectives and changes. In therapy people often want to become more aware of their beliefs, feelings, thoughts, relationships, or choices in their lives. My integrative approach enables me to modify therapy to specific goals and needs of each person or family, and to meet new concerns. Starting with our first meeting I invite working together and with your feedback as I draw on knowledge and experience to support you using cognitive, behavioural, creative, emotion-focused, narrative, pastoral, and systems approaches.

My approach to psychotherapy is founded in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but also blends other therapies. I will teach you the basics of the type of therapy that is most relevant to your problem. We will then work to apply the therapy to your specific issue. We will practice the skills that are taught and you will be given work to do at home. You will then report back about how the strategies are being implemented at home to allow us to tweak the skills to have them work best for you! Ultimately, you will be much better at managing your own issues independently!

Richard Merrill Haney, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Counselling Therapy)

Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

Bank Street (On the Rideau Canal), 15 Aylmer Ave. (Entrance at the rear door, at 7 Galt St.) , Ottawa, Ontario

I use the word "Psyche" with my clients to describe how they have a perturbance in their everyday life-style which prevents them from having a normal life. Hippocrates believed (and I do too) that when someone is out of touch with the world around them then it makes sense that there would be a perturbance to symbolize to them that corrective action is necessary. In that sense the perturbance is a good thing because it delivers a message to get back in touch with the Psyche, or the whole field, that we live in. I teach my clients that self-sabotage is actually our Psyche diligently attempting to signal us to get back in touch with ourselves. In a sense accidents are not really accidents.

Psychotherapist

Christian Counselling Ottawa

Registered Psychotherapists

303-63 Glencoe Street, Ottawa, Ontario

The psychotherapeutic approach that we use puts the clients’ needs first and the therapists meet the clients where they are at. This is a client centered focus. We look at building the strengths of the client while being compassionate and providing a safe environment for the client to process their struggles. We have the added dimension of including any kind of spiritual element to the therapy process without imposing external views. Clients often report that they find this essential as it is often a vital part of who they are, and it can be a barrier to healing if they do not feel free to open up about this area of their life.
