Counselling & Psychotherapy Services in Vaughan & Greater Toronto Area
We are the largest psychotherapy & counselling service provider in the Vaughan and Woodbridge area. In our clinic, we have had the privilege of working with individuals and families through periods of transition and crisis for the past 18 years. Our team of independent psychotherapists, social workers, psychologists, and counsellors share the same values, visions, and missions in our practice. We offer cutting edge psychotherapy, psychology and counselling services to individuals, families, and couples.
Please note, Vaughan Counselling Centre changed its name to Life in Harmony at Vaughan Counselling Centre in February 2019. The management team remains the same.
At our clinic, we have been providing video chat and phone counselling for many years locally and across Canada. Online counselling takes everything you’d expect from an in-person session and moves it to an online platform, in our case phone or video-chat. It’s one of the fastest-growing trends in mental health support. This form of counselling is secure and confidential and is fully supported by Canadian regulatory bodies.
Childhood and adolescence can be both fruitful and daunting phases in our lives, characterized by high productivity and heightened sensitivity. Drawing on our extensive experience working with young people, we provide valuable resources to our young clients and their parents to navigate the bewildering array of novel experiences, emotions, and ideas that arise during these formative years.
We work with parents so that they can understand a variety of techniques and theories (that as a parent you may not have time to learn about on your own) and we collaborate on ways that works for you and your family. The parent-child relationship in a family is essential to the children’s and adolescent’s self-esteem. In our counselling sessions, you learn a variety of techniques and theories that work best for you and your family.
One of the most frequent concerns we hear from individuals is a version of "I know what to do, but I just can't seem to do it." Chances are that you find this familiar too. Whether you are disoriented by a crisis, making a career choice, taking on a personal project, considering leaving a relationship, or entering a new relationship, some degree of reservation, anxiety, stress, confusion, and self-doubt is natural.
Marriage and couples therapy offers assistance in developing a deeper and more meaningful bond with your partner. Through the guidance of our therapists, couples can achieve greater satisfaction in their relationship or marriage. As social creatures, humans thrive on connections, and cultivating a healthy relationship can be one of the most enjoyable and crucial experiences in life.
AREAS OF SPECIALTY
Trauma & PTSD Counselling
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health disorder triggered by exposure to a traumatic experience. The symptoms of PTSD can significantly affect daily functioning, even long after the traumatic event has passed.
Many individuals may live with their PTSD symptoms for years before seeking help. If you have been exposed to trauma or believe you may have PTSD, we encourage you to book a consultation with one of our specialized psychotherapists.
Counselling for Grief & Bereavement
Grief is a complex emotional experience that extends beyond mere sadness. It can disrupt your physical health and sleeping patterns, and trigger challenging emotions such as regret and guilt.
Coping with grief alone can be an overwhelming experience, and you may feel like you'll never feel okay again. Our mental health specialists are available to offer the support and guidance you need to manage and overcome your symptoms of grief and bereavement. Please book a consultation with us today.
Therapy for Anxiety & Panic Attack
Experiencing occasional anxiety is a typical aspect of life, but for some individuals, the symptoms of anxiety can be overpowering. Panic attacks manifest as sudden and unforeseen episodes of extreme fear or discomfort. Alternatively, individuals may experience anxiety attacks triggered by specific stressors.
Fortunately, anxiety and panic attacks need not control your life. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our psychotherapists who can equip you with effective tools to overcome this disabling disorder.
Psychotherapy for Phobias
Phobias can have varying degrees of impact on one's life, from minor to severe, and may disrupt one's work, education, relationships, and obligations. Despite recognizing the excessive nature of their fears, individuals with phobias may feel powerless to take action.
If you suspect that you are struggling with a phobia, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our expert therapists who can support you in effectively managing and conquering this condition.
Psychotherapy for Depression
While it's natural to experience occasional sadness, if such feelings start to interfere with our daily activities, it may indicate a more serious underlying issue. Major Depressive Disorder is a prevalent mental health condition that can significantly affect one's overall functioning, regardless of age, gender, or socioeconomic status.
If you suspect that you may be experiencing depression, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of expert psychotherapists who can provide you with effective tools to manage and overcome this condition.
Counselling for Sextual Trauma
Sexual trauma may manifest as a consequence of non-consensual sexual contact, such as abuse, rape, molestation, or incest. Survivors of sexual trauma may continue to experience symptoms long after the event has occurred.
If you have been affected by sexual trauma, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our mental health specialists who can support you in managing your symptoms and enhancing your overall well-being.
Counselling for Addiction
An addiction is characterized by a compulsion to continue using a substance, chemical, activity, or behavior, despite causing physical or psychological damage.
Overcoming addiction can be an arduous task, but our mental health specialists are available to provide the necessary support and tools to help you overcome addiction. Please reach out to us today to schedule a consultation.
Counselling for Anger Management
When anger is unregulated, it can result in aggressive behavior, emotional outbursts, and even physical altercations. The aftermath of such outbursts can cause distress to both you and the people around you.
Anger management counseling is an effective way to learn how to regulate your emotions before they become overwhelming.
We can provide you with the support and guidance you need to manage and overcome this condition.
