At Optimum Counselling Centre, we value our clients and their happiness. We aim to provide the opportunity to work on any potential obstacles that may be holding you back from fully enjoying life.
What we do
We offer personalized counselling for individuals, families, and couples alike.
Sessions are conducted for 50-60 minute intervals and the cost is $150-200, depending on financial circumstances.
We offer individual therapy to all ages. Individual therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a trained counselor helps a single person deal with personal issues they have been facing. The therapist creates a safe place for the individual to express the challenges and with support from a professional, find solutions to solve the problems and learn healthy coping skills to deal with the situation. It is an effective treatment for a variety of emotional difficulties and mental illnesses. Also known as talk therapy, it can help improve or control symptoms that influence an individual’s well-being. The therapist may use different approaches based on clients’ needs, age, and situation. For example, for a young kid, it might be play or art-based instead of talk therapy.
In Family therapy, some or all family members attend a session with a trained professional to discuss a challenging situation they are dealing with. It could be about a specific issue such as conflict between parents and children, financial problems, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family. Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger, or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer together. A family member may also see a family therapist individually. Family therapy will help you learn healthy communication skills, understand your family’s ability to solve problems in a productive method, family rules, and responsibilities as well as your strengths and capacity as a family. It can help you and your family members understand one another better, and it can provide skills to cope with challenging situations in a more effective way. It may also help the family achieve a sense of togetherness. Sessions typically take about 50 minutes to an hour. Family therapy is often short-term; however, how often you meet and the number of sessions you'll need will depend on your family's particular situation and the therapist's recommendation.
Couple therapy is a way to address marriage and relationship issues. Marriage counselling or couples therapy sessions involve the couple meeting with the therapist to describe the problem, concern, or challenge that brings them to therapy; each person will have a chance to express how they perceive their relationship concerns. Following the initial session, the therapist will then meet with each partner either together or individually for subsequent sessions to further explore the perspectives of each partner. The therapist will also ask about individual family histories, values, and beliefs, in addition to any traumas and relational experiences that may be important for understanding current relationship challenges. In the safe environment of the therapy room, couples will be encouraged to take emotional risks in communicating with their partner. While there might be some basic emphasis on communication skills, a primary focus in the marriage counselling and couples therapy sessions is on the ‘here and now' process of how couples relate to each other. The focus is not on blaming one another, but on identifying each person’s needs, emotional experience, and triggers. The process of therapy then involves identifying the maladaptive relationship pattern and finding ways to free the couple from it.
