REGISTERED PSYCHOTHERAPY

Philosophy 

Registered Psychotherapists utilize talk-based therapy to help people improve and maintain their mental health and wellbeing. Psychotherapy is when a helper (the Registered Psychotherapist) and a client develop a therapeutic relationship with the purpose of helping create change in the client’s thinking, emotions, behaviour, or social functioning. At Evolve, our philosophy is to treat the whole person and to address the root cause of a problem, which leads to better health outcomes.

How we do what we do

After your initial assessment, your therapist will work to create a tailored treatment plan that takes into account the issue(s) you are facing, your context, personality, and more. At Evolve, we implement evidence-based practice, which means that we consider what the current literature suggests is the best approach for the problem you are facing. Importantly, we utilize an integrative approach which incorporates techniques from a wide array of therapeutic modalities, because one size does not fit all. 

 
Holding Hands
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is the gold standard treatment for depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and other disorders. With CBT, we work collaboratively to help you understand the interrelatedness between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. We will utilize various techniques to help target ineffective cognitions, so you can break free from the vicious cycle.

 
Solutions-Focused Therapy (SFT)

SFT is a strengths-based and goal-directed approach that helps you capitalize on the skills you already have to address the current problem. We work together to develop awareness of these strengths and create realistic solutions.

Humanistic Therapy

This is a holistic approach which considers the uniqueness of each person. It is particularly helpful for people who are trying to find their true potential, searching for deeper meaning, or those who feel like something is missing. Your therapist will provide a safe, supportive, and empathetic atmosphere so you can explore.

Client-Centred Therapy

A client-centred approach emphasizes the importance of the client being the expert. Your therapist will help guide you by providing the resources, techniques, and compassionate environment you need to grow and create lasting change.
