Psychological Assessment and Consultation
A psychological assessment can help identify a mental health diagnosis, understand what is contributing to your psychological symptoms and can help with developing an effective treatment plan.
A psychological assessment can take several sessions and involves an understanding of your history that includes childhood, adolescent and early to late adulthood experiences, family attachment patterns, traumatic events, your personality, your recent life experiences, school or work stressors, your physical and mental health.
A psychological assessment forms part of your initial sessions for psychotherapy. However, psychological assessment can be a standalone service.
Couple Therapy & Marriage Counseling
Couple therapy or marriage counselling are two different names that refer to the same service. Couples who are in a serious relationship whether they are dating, common-law, engaged or legally married can seek psychotherapy/counselling for a range of problems related to their relationship. For example:
- Difficulties in communication, understanding, empathy
- Constant arguing, conflict
- Problems with in-laws
- Anger, violence
- Betrayal, affair, cheating
- Difficulties with sex, physical intimacy
Couple therapy can include helping the couple understand and cope with one or both partners physical or mental illness (e.g. heart disease, cancer, personality disorder, bipolar, etc).
