Our Theoretical orientation
Our clinical work is dependent upon the needs of individual clients. It is our belief that no single clinical theory or approach is comprehensive enough to account for the complexities of human behaviour. Our counselling approach to work with clients could best be characterized as eclectic or integrated. Some therapies focus on bringing out feelings, others stress identifying thoughts and still others concentrate on actual behaviour.
Every psychologist and staff member at Toronto Psychological Services deeply values and respects diversity in culture, race, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, age and gender.
Toronto Psychological Services therapists are primarily concerned about how the world appears from the subjective viewpoint of our clients, whether they are very young or more mature. We hold positive beliefs about people, seeing them as trustworthy, capable, dependable and friendly.
We have a positive viewpoint of ourselves and have confidence in our ability to provide our clients with caring, competent, professional service. We understand that it takes courage and commitment on the part of our clients to seek personal change. Importantly, we know, without reservation, that our clients have the potential for change and positive growth.
