Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Anxiety & Stress


When you feel like you're going in circles with a problem, a difficult person or something that you can't stop worrying about, cognitive therapy can help you find the relief you need.

  • Individual 50-minute counselling sessions. Typically, people come in for traditional face to face counselling sessions every week or every other week depending on your schedule. Most people attend 5-8 sessions of therapy before they start to really notice that they are feeling better. If you have multiple concerns, depression or OCD, expect therapy to take a little longer - anywhere from 15-20 sessions on average. If you would prefer to work mostly on your own self-help program with monthly "coaching" sessions with a therapist who can give you feedback and encouragement we would be happy to accommodate you. 
  • Rapid Relief sessions. Some people are keen to learn the strategies that can help them feel better as quickly as possible. Please call, 604-259-0627 if you are interested in learning more about our Rapid Relief sessions. These are 1 or 2 day long intensive therapy sessions where you can focus on learning what you need to know to solve a problem or cope with anxiety right away. Many find this a convenient option as it is easier to schedule one or two days off (or arrange childcare) than to attend weekly appointments. 
  • Online classes. These are offered periodically, where you can learn a particular set of skills from the comfort of your own home. If you miss a class, you'll be able to watch the recordings at a time that is more convenient for you. Please check this website regularly for the latest schedule of classes. While you are waiting for live online classes, please click here to check out the free online self-help videos.
