Dr. Linda Bream is a registered Clinical Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. She received her doctorate degree in psychology from the University of Waterloo. She began her career at the Canadian Mental Health Association, as the discipline consultant in psychology, and has been practicing in Guelph for over 25 years.
Linda’s role at Insight Psychology on Norfolk is to provide both assessment and treatment to children and their families for a wide variety of learning and mental health issues. Linda provides in-depth psychological and psychoeducational assessments that help to identify how children learn and why they struggle emotionally to provide concrete strategies about how to make changes.
Linda believes that helping parents to understand their children is the first step in any effective treatment. She uses an eclectic approach in treating children and youth, employing principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Interpersonal Therapy.
With a background in developmental psychology, Linda also provides consultations to parents of children of all ages regarding normal developmental transitions and adjustments to major life events.
Linda has raised two daughters and she enjoys long walks in the woods with her dog, Jasper.
Please Note: Dr. Bream will be away on sabbatical from February 2018 returning in late September of 2018. Upon her return, Dr. Bream’s focus will be assessment, short-term therapy, and providing parent consultations.
