What is PTSD?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can happen in anyone who has experienced or witnessed one or more traumatic incidents such as a serious accident, a shooting, a tragic death, a violent assault, or other distressing events.

Therapy for Medical Responders

Even though paramedics and EMTs are trained to respond to medical issues, traumatic injuries or accident scenes, being exposed to them frequently can take its toll. Therapy can help you process difficult situations and gain valuable coping skills to continue serving the community and saving lives.

Therapy for Doctors & Nurse

Doctors and nurses have come out as the heroes of the COVID-19 crises, during which they have kept our community safe. However, working with the sick and injured on a daily basis, along with stressful and sleepless nights, can lead to burn out, and often times emotional distress. We can help you deal with the stress and pressure of working as a doctor or nurse.

Psychological Support for Firefighters

Being a firefighter can be a double-edged sword. One the one hand, firefighters are heroic and integral members of society, and in being that, they often face tragic incidents. Our team of therapists can help firefighters process feelings of grief, horror, anxiety, trauma, or depression.

Grief Counselling

Sadly, firefighters and police officers are sometimes lost in the line of duty, and their friends and families have to cope with the grief that comes with that tragic loss. In these situations, emotions can be so overwhelming that it feels overpowering. We offer grief counselling to help firefighters process their loss and learn to move on.

Our psychologists are trained in various therapy techniques including eye movement desensitization & reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), emotional freedom technique (EFT), hypnotherapy, mindfulness, and more.
