WE SPECIALIZE IN COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY

The Waterloo CBT Clinic is a private psychology clinic specializing in providing cognitive behavioural therapy. We work with adults and adolescents (13+ years). Treatment areas include anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, stress, insomnia, post-traumatic stress, and body image concerns.

ASSESSMENT

We primarily provide pre-treatment assessments focused on determining whether our treatment approach is a good fit for your needs.  During this assessment you will be asked a number of questions about your history as well as mood, anxiety, and current functioning.  We may also have you fill out some questionnaires in the office or at home.

TREATMENT

Our clinic specializes in providing cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), a psychological treatment that has been scientifically proven to be effective for a wide range of mental health difficulties. CBT is a short-term (8-20 sessions), skills-based approach designed to teach you skills for better managing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that are keeping you stuck. Our goal is to teach you a set of skills so that by the end of therapy, you will have the tools you need to be your own therapist.

Since it was initially developed, CBT has been the focus of much research and development.  There have been a number of related therapies that have developed as a result of this research.   Our therapists are skilled in providing CBT for a variety of concerns, and are also trained in related and complementary approaches.  For instance, we may incorporate mindfulness (link to https://www.mindful.org/meditation/mindfulness-getting-started/) or self-compassion (link to https://self-compassion.org/) training into our work with clients.
