Practice in Psychotherapy
Adults, Couples, Adolescents and Families

How you cope with stress influences your psychological well-being, social functioning, and bodily health. There are many ways to deal with anxiety and problems, some, such as denial, avoiding the problem, social withdrawal, impulsivity, and excessive eating or drinking, can be self-defeating, only to make matters worse. Others, such as understanding the self and it's reactions, taking into account the various positive ways to cope, can make things much better. There is convincing evidence that psychotherapy can make an important difference in finding positive solutions to work issues, to  family/couple problems, and in dealing with emotional distress in a healthy way.
My name is Rom Malik. I am a psychotherapist with 20 years of full time private practice experience. I provide psychotherapy services to adults, 'emerging adults,' teenagers, and children. (*Emerging adults refers to an age group (18-25) often in the midst of figuring themselves out, exploring their relationship needs, making decisions around education and career goals, all of which can have life long impact).

A good therapy relationship is vital to successful treatment. I create a safe place for exploring fears, worries, and trauma's, and helping strengthen your responses to them. Clients indicate feeling comfortable and confident in my treatment approach and personality. Once engaged in treatment, we work towards our mutually developed goals, navigating life challenges, improving relationships, and coping with symptoms. We are focussed not only upon coping but understanding the underlying causes and powerfully dismantling them.
