Overcoming Challenges with Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a form of talk therapy that is proven in numerous clinical trials to be effective for a wide variety of mental health needs.

Working Together to Solve Problems

We work together as a team to identify and solve problems. A wellness plan is developed and tailored to your unique needs to overcome difficulties by changing unhelpful thinking and behavior patterns. You take an active role in your recovery by establishing goals to meet during and outside therapy.


Supporting Entire Families

Cognitive Behavior Therapy benefits people of all ages.  Children attend sessions with their parents and everyone participates to learn effective tools for coping with challenges at home and in school.

Overcoming Anxiety

Everyone feels nervous and worries from time to time. These feelings warn of danger and motivate problem solving. Sometimes anxiety becomes so intense and overwhelming that it interferes with school, work or home. This may be an anxiety disorder. Cognitive Behavior Therapy challenges catastrophic thoughts and increases coping so that quality of life can be restored.

Coping with Depression

Depression is prolonged sadeness, a loss of interest in activities otherwise enjoyed, thoughts of failure and worthlessness, low energy levels, low motivation and difficulty concentration and/or making decisions. Cognitive Behavior Therapy helps identify and challenge depressive thinking while supporting more balanced ways of thinking and restarting positive behaviors to improve mood. Numerous studies have shown Cognitive Behavior Therapy to be as effective as medication in treating mild and moderate depression. Cognitive Behavior Therapy has also been shown to prevent relapse for people who experience frequent relapses after receiving other forms of treatment.

Affordable Rates

The Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Care Plan (MCP) does not cover therapy fees.

Most private health insurance plans and employee assistance programs cover all, or a  portion, of the fees. Sessions are typically 50 minutes with 10 minutes for documentation, referrals and planning for additional sessions.
