Collaborative Environment

Individual counselling is a two-person project. It relies not only on the skill of the therapist, but also on your willingness to participate in the therapy.

At Capital Choice Counselling in Kanata, Nepean, Ottawa & Orleans, our therapists work to create an environment of collaboration. A therapy session involves a give and take between you and the therapist. It involves hard work, yes – but the benefits for you are enormous.

What can you accomplish by seeing a psychotherapist in Ottawa? Our counsellors treat patients with a variety of issues, needs and goals. Depression and anxiety are two of the more common conditions that prompt people to seek psychotherapy. We also have experts in trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), abuse, chronic illness and pain, post-partum depression and much more.

The first and most important step in the process is to recognize that you’re suffering, and that you can get better by seeking help. That’s the next step, making the call to get help, and both are courageous ones. Whom you select and how you go about addressing the issues and finding solutions are what happens after that. It’s a process, not an overnight ‘cure,’ but your time and effort are an investment in yourself.

Our Ottawa-based counsellors are trained in most kinds of therapy and will use an eclectic approach dependent on the client’s needs and the presenting counselling issue. We are trained in client-centred therapy, emotion focused therapy, psycho-biological approaches to therapy, existential therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy and many more. One of the most commonly employed techniques is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBTfor short.

CBT works by helping you address your problematic thinking. Where possible, CBT therapists help you contradict and challenge thoughts that are illogical and destructive, what we like to call our “stinking thinking.”

By changing your thoughts, you can change your behavior. By changing your behavior, you can change how you feel.
