A Bit About Psychotherapy

What is it?

The official definition according to the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (2022) is, “Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Psychotherapy occurs when the Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and client enter into a psychotherapeutic relationship where both work together to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning.”

Therapy (also known or referred to as counselling, clinical counselling, and/or psychotherapy) is a collaborative process where we can work together to try to identify concerns, areas for growth, your strengths, and/or develop new skills or behaviour patterns. This can all contribute to an increased understanding of yourself and others. While there are no guarantees of specific outcomes from therapy, research supports that evidence-based psychotherapy can be helpful in bringing about positive change.
