A belief in human resilience and our innate drive toward health underlies our approach to psychotherapy. We may explore early life experiences as influences on the present for more compassionate understanding and self-acceptance. The theoretical approaches we use include cognitive behavioural, neurobiological, attachment theory, and mindfulness practices. Life's challenges and mental distress are often catalysts for personal growth, meaning, and purpose.
By training the brain to function more effectively, Neurofeedback can help with a wide variety of challenges including disturbed sleep, poor attention, chronic pain, migraines, anxiety, PTSD, depression, and autism. It is also highly effective for improving the regulation of emotions.
A QEEG brain map informs us of the electrical activity taking place in your brain. It specifically provides us an understanding of which brain frequencies are deficient, excessive or balanced in different neural regions. Imbalances can be caused by multiple factors, including but not limited to: physical injury (concussions, high fever, exposure to neurotoxins etc.), emotional trauma and genetic conditions. In having this information, we are able to create a treatment plan or protocol specific to you and your needs.
We use a family resilience approach that is a very positive and constructive perspective. We teach families how to communicate more effectively and how to change destructive patterns. Where there has been trauma or loss we work on how to move forward, as difficult as that may currently seem to be.
