Allison Singh is a registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. She received her Honours Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology from McMaster University in 2007. She received her Masters degree in Counselling Psychology (M. Ed) from the University of Western Ontario in 2009. Having worked in public school boards for over 10 years, Allison’s expertise is in the diagnosis of learning, behavioural, and mental health needs for children and adolescents. She takes great care to communicate students’ strengths and needs in a manner that is easily understood by caregivers and education staff.
In addition to assessment, Allison provides therapeutic intervention and works with individuals of all ages who struggle with emotional dysregulation including stress, anxiety, depressed mood, and anger. As a parent herself, Allison believes that the well-being of children begins with their caregivers and enjoys working with families to improve their communication and relationships with one another. She uses mainly a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework, but also draws upon techniques from other styles including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. Allison also provides couples therapy and has completed training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
Allison lives in Cambridge with her husband and two children and enjoys curling, exercising, and reading.
