Anxiety/Depression/Trauma

It’s not uncommon for people to experience a great deal of stress, along with anxiety and depression and it’s not always easy to understand where it’s coming from. As a result, we find that it’s important to understand how previous and current personal and work experiences may contribute to the problem. 

We use a variety of approaches for healing, such as exploring perspectives and belief systems, shifting processes in emotional patterns and the unconscious, and problem solving about specific options and situations. 

The Wholeness Psychology Centre team has extensive experience providing counselling to first responders including current-serving military members, veterans, police officers, fire fighters and emergency medical personnel. 

We provide treatment for all kinds of traumas, including combat trauma, car accidents, sexual assaults, military related trauma, shootings, past childhood abuse and neglect, serious illness, and more.

      Self-Discovery

      Wholeness Psychology Centre is influenced by psychodynamic and humanistic models. Our team works with those interested in the self-discovery process, often triggered by a life crisis or transition, feeling lost and depressed, or a sense of disconnection from self and others, asking “Who am I?” and “Where am I going?” we explore life purpose and meaning, increase awareness of personal qualities, abilities and gifts, and become empowered to create a more fulfilling life.

      Our team approaches therapy with two purposes in mind, both essential for self-transformation and long-lasting change. One is to engage in a healing process, whether it be physical, emotional, or psychological. The other purpose is to engage in a wholing process, where you access and gather the resources that you need to move forward with your life from a place of strength and resilience.
