Our Values

A team of passionate and caring therapists that are rallied around one single cause: to help you reduce suffering and get back into your life. We offer compassionate and creative treatment solutions that are supported by empirical data and the latest research in therapy. We work collaboratively with you to identify what is important to focus on and customize our plans to meet your specific needs. Suffer less and live more starting now.

Evidence-based therapy

At a time when people are searching for the most efficient and effective mental health solutions available, we provide access to treatment that is backed by science. That's why each of our clinicians at ACTion Psychotherapy have been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), among additional evidence-based therapy approaches.

ACT is a mindfulness-based, dynamic cognitive behaviour therapy that holds decades of research to support it’s effectiveness across a wide-range of psychological concerns, including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, trauma disorders, and interpersonal relationships. We are committed to providing our clients with leading-class treatment options.

Our Values

Innovation

At ACTion psychotherapy, we strive to provide clients with ease of access and convenience when they use our services.

We offer both in-person and telehealth options to our clients, which means that the choice of meeting in the office or the comfort of your own home is yours to make. We use PHIPA and PIPEDA-compliant software for our telehealth appointments to ensure that you access care in a safe and secure manner, and your information remains confidential.

Access to psycho-educational material and information that could benefit your mental wellbeing is important to us. We hope to offer insight and education on relevant topics in mental health that you may access at any time through our blog and resources page.

Experience

ACTion Psychotherapy conceptualizes experience not only in the quantity of years in practice, but the quality of clinical experience working with diverse populations. All of our clinicians have worked in a variety of settings, including private, rehabilitation, not-for-profit, as well as short-term and long-term treatment models.

From our collective experience, effective treatment often begins with an assessment to better understand what is coming up for you, and why, so collaboratively we can figure out what we do with it. We design treatment plans catered to your specific-needs based on your unique strengths.

At the core of our treatment is genuine care and attention given to building a secure therapeutic alliance. Research shows that the therapeutic relationship is the strongest predictor of successful outcomes in therapy. In other words, our therapists care about getting to know you, and not simply applying one-size fits all techniques.

Compassion

Compassion is our business. It is at the core of who we are and why we entered into the business of helping others. This shared value means that clinicians who practice at ACTion Psychotherapy take our work seriously and demonstrate understanding and validation through every step of treatment – from getting your account set up to ensuring adequate space for therapeutic closure.

In fact, ACT and mindfulness-based acceptance models are based upon a foundation of compassion. The aim of this treatment model is less about trying to change or get rid of unwanted feelings, rather, bring awareness to all of our parts, so that we can allow them to exist, stop the draining struggle against them, and free our time and energy to focus on what really matters to us. ACT is all about having a better relationship with yourself.

Timely

ACTion Psychotherapy provides professional support for issues related to mental health when it is needed. It is a mission of ours to reduce the wait times between referral and initial consultation with an effective clinician to 1-2 weeks.

There are plenty of deliveries that we have to wait for in life – starting on your road toward recovery shouldn’t be one of them.
