Treatment Areas

Stress, Anxiety, Depression

Stress, anxiety, and depression can have a significant impact on your life. These conditions can exist individually or coexist with one another. Although they can be overwhelming, a dependable therapist can provide valuable assistance.  

Stress is a natural human reaction triggered by changes or perceived threats in our environment. It has the potential to take a toll on both physical and emotional well-being, causing a person to feel tense and uneasy. Stress often comes up in response to external factors, such as work. 

Anxiety, on the other hand, encompasses symptoms like excessive worry, fear, and nervousness. It can manifest temporarily or as a persistent, ongoing condition that often disrupts an individual’s quality of life. Anxiety can also present itself as an anxiety disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. 

Lastly, depression is a mood disorder characterized by ongoing feelings of sadness and a lowered interest in everyday activities. It is considered clinical when the emotions persist for two or more weeks.

Grief, Loss, Trauma & PTSD

Grief, loss, trauma, and PTSD can all be worked through with the support of a therapist. Grief and loss are often experienced after the loss of a loved one.

People may experience a wide range of emotions when dealing with grief such as intense sadness, frustration, disbelief, and confusion. Although loss is part of life, it can be difficult to go through alone. A therapist can provide considerable help during these times. Trauma, on the other hand, is a response to a particularly upsetting and distressing event. The person may feel different emotional and/or psychological responses as a reaction to this happening. In some cases, going through a traumatic experience can also lead to the development of a mental health condition called post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This can cause unpleasant symptoms such as mood challenges, unwanted thoughts, and sleep disturbances.  

Relationships & Family Conflict

If you are dealing with issues in your relationship or family dynamics, a therapist can help you. It can be difficult to go through challenges with someone close to you in your life, but therapy offers you a safe space to explore those feelings with a trusted professional.

A variety of different struggles may arise in a relationship such as infidelity, trust issues, conflict, sexual problems, marriage issues, jealousy, and others. In family units, common problems can include illness, financial stress, jealousy, and more. No matter what type of issue you are facing in your relationship or family dynamics, a mental health professional can play a valuable role. They can provide professional insight into the best way to navigate these challenges and begin healing. We have both family and couples counselling at HealthOne to help you.

LGBTQ+ & Sexuality

At HealthOne, we offer therapy for individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. It’s important to have a therapist who offers this specific type of support.

Our professionals can help with issues around self-identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, sexual health, and much more. We will provide a completely safe and inclusive space for you to discuss your challenges or concerns. Because we have worked extensively with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community, our mental health professionals have a deep understanding of the specific obstacles you may be facing. Additional topics you can explore during this time include anxiety, depression, stress, substance use, trauma, emotional issues, or anything else you might be going through.  

Substance Abuse & Addictions

It can be very difficult to struggle with substance abuse as it can affect not only your life, but the lives of those around you. There are many substances such as alcohol, marijuana, nicotine, and prescription drugs that people can become addicted to.

By meeting with a therapist, you can begin to address these issues and discuss your feelings surrounding your use of the substance. A therapist can also support you if you have an addiction to something other than a substance such as gambling, alcohol, or gaming. Because these addictions can interfere heavily with other areas of life, having a therapist can be a very useful resource. Receiving mental health support is one of the first and best steps you can take towards a healthier and happier life.

Life Skills and Transitions

Seeing a therapist can be a great way to work on yourself personally. They can help you develop valuable life skills that equip you with the ability to navigate life’s challenges with more ease.

Examples of the areas that a therapist can support you include critical thinking skills, problem solving, communication, and decision making. They can also help you learn strategies and tools to deal with life’s challenges and troubling emotions that can arise. Another area therapists can support is life transitions. Whether you are changing jobs, dealing with a relationship ending, or recently loss an important person in your life, a therapist can help you navigate this change and cope with your emotions in a healthy way. They will provide a safe, comfortable space where you can build your confidence and self-worth.

Anxiety Counselling

If you are struggling with anxiety, our experienced therapy team will provide customized counselling and treatment to support you. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns in North America, leading many individuals to seek out the support of a therapist.

It is a complex state of being where an individual anticipates a future situation to be upsetting, unpredictable, or threating to their well-being. 

When you experience anxiety, you may feel things such as tension, worry, intrusive thoughts that interfere with your day-to-day life, irrational fears, or find yourself avoiding certain situations that you believe will cause more anxiety or panic symptoms. 

The good news is that a mental health professional can play an integral role in helping you deal with anxiety. They will understand more about your unique experience and provide suggestions and tools to help you manage your symptoms. If you would like to meet a therapist to see if they are a good fit for your needs, we encourage you to book a free Meet and Greet appointment. 

Our therapists specialize in providing Anxiety Counselling.

We invite you to schedule a meet and greet session with multiple team members if you would like to get a sense of multiple people before booking your first appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can therapy really help?

Therapy can be an incredibly useful tool if you are going through emotional challenges in your life. A skilled therapist can help you in many ways such as helping you navigate your feelings, learn valuable skills, and change patterns of behaviour that may be causing unpleasant symptoms in your life. Over time, many people find that speaking with a therapist helps them feel more in control of emotional issues. 

We want our clients to understand that although the benefits of therapy are not always immediate, they can accumulate and be incredibly beneficial over time. 

It’s important to remember that you can always be honest with your therapist. If you would like to discuss any components of your treatment approach, such as something you think is not working, you are always welcome to. 

. 

Why go to therapy?

Mental health therapy can be incredibly beneficial for anyone and everyone. The primary goal is to improve your mental health and overall well-being. People often think they need a specific or significant issue going on in their life in order to speak with a therapist, but this is not true. Many people find it beneficial to speak with a therapist about all sorts of topics going on in their life without a specific diagnosis or issue. 

It can also be useful to speak with a therapist if you are dealing with a specific mental health concern or condition. Navigating these challenges alone can be incredibly difficult. When you speak with a therapist, you have a trusted professional you can confide in. This professional is skilled in supporting individuals through similar situations and will use their knowledge and expertise to help you navigate the situation with ease. 

HealthOne’s experienced team of mental health professionals can help you through a variety of challenges such as current circumstances (burnout, transitions, loss, work stress, immigration, break ups) or mood conditions such as depression and anxiety-related issues (anxiety disorder, panic, phobias, ADHD). 

What is online therapy?

Online therapy is a secure and convenient way to speak with a mental health professional. It is done over video chat or a phone call. This is a great option if you would like to speak with a therapist from the comfort of home or anywhere where you have a private space and stable internet connection. 

We do all of our online therapy sessions on a privacy-secured platform that is compliant with HIPPA. We welcome you to book a virtual appointment by clicking here!  

Is my therapy session confidential?

At HealthOne, we strongly believe in the importance of confidentiality during all forms of talk therapy. We understand that it is extremely necessary for you to know that your therapist will keep your session confidential so you can build an ongoing and trusting relationship with them.  

Our team members are legally and ethically bound to keep their sessions confidential. They will get your written consent to release personal health information about you to any other members of your health team, including a consultation about your treatment with your family doctor or psychiatrist. 

The only exception to this rule is if your therapist has a reason to believe you may harm yourself or others. In this case, they will return to appropriate resources to make sure that you (or others) are safe from any harm. 

How many sessions do I need?

SHORT TERM THERAPIES • 1 to 6 SESSIONS 
 

You may seek short term therapy sessions, which are quick. This can be useful to help you reduce stress levels or find a solution to a circumstance in your life that could use short-term approaches. 

 

MEDIUM TERM THERAPIES • 6 to 12+ SESSIONS 
 

You may also seek medium term therapies. This can be useful for mood issues such as depression, relationship problems, or anxiety disorders. 

MORE INVOLVED THERAPIES • 12+ SESSIONS 

More involved therapies are also available. These are based on your unique case and typically apply to more stressful problems. For example, therapies can be used to help with ongoing and reoccurring problems such as patterns in relationships, mental illness, ongoing health conditions, and impulsive behaviours such as disordered eating, addictions, substance abuse, and trauma. 
 

How much is therapy at HealthOne?

Our therapy services provided by social workers and psychotherapists at HealthOne cost $185 for an individual session and $235 for couples counselling.
