Adult Assessment & Treatment
Life can sometimes feel overwhelming and you may be struggling with stress or other intense emotions. At times, you may need support to explore, manage, and/or diagnose a mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, or other issues. You may also find that there is an underlying learning or attention problem that is impacting your overall ability to function in life.
At Insight Psychology, our team of professionals provide a variety of psychological services for adults including assessments, diagnosis, and counselling for individuals or couples. Our clinicians can help you better understand yourself, improve your overall functioning, and increase your sense of well-being.
Adult Psychological Services
Individual counselling, often called talk therapy or individual psychotherapy, can take many different forms. In general, it involves approaching difficult emotions, changing unhelpful behaviours, or modifying how you think about situations. It can involve talking about your past, improving the present moment, or working towards goals for your future. Our clinicians will collaborate with you to tailor a treatment approach that meets your needs.
Seeing a therapist as a couple can help you to better understand relationship problems and help you to chart a more satisfying course in your relationship. Counselling may be proactive if a couple foresees difficult issues on the horizon, or it can repair past transgressions and relationship conflicts so that a couple can stay together and their relationship can thrive.
An important part of couples counselling is assessing individual partners’ needs. Sometimes individual therapy is recommended in addition to (or before) participating in couples therapy.
Adult Psychological Assessment & Diagnosis
Adult psychological assessments can help to answer a range of questions. Sometimes individuals have undiagnosed learning or attention problems that have held them back since childhood. Other times, mental health problems in adulthood may limit an individual’s ability to function in important life domains (e.g. work, school). Your psychological assessment will be tailored to address your unique concerns.
Sports Psychology & Performance-Enhancement Training
A person’s mental game is a huge factor in their athletic performance, as well as other performance areas. At Insight Psychology, you can work with one of our experienced sports psychologists to develop methods to achieve maximal performance for your sport or activity of choice.
Consultations with parents or coaches can also be helpful when they wish to help their young athletes and performers manage the demands of these activities.
Consultations with Other Healthcare Providers
Our clinicians provide a unique perspective on mental health, physical health, and learning problems. This can be helpful when individuals are dealing with complex mental health or performance issues.
We consult with a range of professionals including family physicians, medical specialists, naturopathic doctors, dietitians, occupational therapists, workplace health services, and student health services.
