Adult Therapy:

At Kindercare Psychology, our goal is to provide treatment and support to all individuals within a family unit, and many of our clinicians have years of experience working with adults. We use a client-centered approach to therapy, drawing on various evidence-based treatment modalities, such as cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), dialectical-behaviour therapy (DBT), emotion-focused therapy (EFT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), etc., to help each individual make the necessary changes to meet their potential and improve their overall well-being.

We commonly see adults presenting with various concerns, with or without a formal diagnosis:

  • mood and anxiety concerns
  • obsessive-compulsive symptoms
  • stress, including school, work or family related stressors
  • relationship difficulties
  • a history of trauma
  • grief and bereavement
  • anger management
  • low self-esteem/confidence
  • difficulty within their executive functioning

What is the structure?

Initial therapy sessions:

The first session is booked for 1.5 hours and is primarily meant for the client only. Parent(s)/guardian(s), spouses, or another trusted individual may accompany the client to their first session if needed. Your clinician will help you guide how to best structure this initial session.

Subsequent therapy sessions:

Subsequent therapy sessions are typically booked for 1 hour.
