ONLINE THERAPY ONTARIO
Experience award-winning therapy all across Ontario
Did you know that all of our incredible therapists offer therapy online?
The pandemic changed many things for many of us, and we like to think that there were some silver linings. One of these was the discovery that therapy can be done online- and in fact, many folks prefer it.
At the LCTT, we have the privilege of providing counselling virtually across Ontario. No matter where you live, mental health therapy should be available to you, and online therapy makes that possible. From EMDR to CPT to DBT and beyond, all of our therapists offer the option of online therapy. Our platform is user-friendly and secure.
What is psychotherapy and who is it for?The short answer is that therapy, in our opinion, is for everyone! Folks come to therapy for all kinds of reasons, but usually, something in their life isn’t working or doesn’t feel right, and they want the expertise, wisdom, and guidance of a therapist to help them figure it out. The process of therapy helps you understand how events of the past influence current behaviours and thoughts. This is especially useful if the behaviours and thoughts of today are making life difficult. Therapy is a process of co-creation that allows you to make powerful shifts in your thinking and behaviours to allow you to enjoy your life and handle the ups and downs of life with less turbulence.
What is “trauma”?Trauma is the emotional and physical response to exposure to deeply disturbing events or a series of events. Trauma overwhelms one’s ability to cope and can lead to feelings of helplessness. It can interfere with a healthy sense of self and impede the ability to experience and express a full range of emotions. Trauma can disrupt your sense of safety in the world, and make it difficult to trust others.
What is trauma therapy? Is it just talking about what happened in detail?Trauma therapy is a process of helping you to overcome your reactions to the trauma with an emphasis on your emotional safety. Trauma therapy helps you to work through the shame, guilt, fear of the event or events while helping you to challenge avoidance and isolation. Our trauma therapists help you to process the impact of trauma without re-traumatizing you, and there is never a requirement to go into detail about what happened. Our first and foremost goal is your comfort and safety, always.
What if I don’t know if I have trauma? Can I still come to therapy?This is a question we get asked all the time. People don’t know if they have “enough” trauma to come to therapy, or if what they have experienced is significant enough. There is no comparison on trauma. If something is distressing for you, bothering you or keeping you from living a life with ease, then we can help, we want to help, and we welcome you to our clinic.
What if I want to do therapy for other issues that are not trauma-related?Then you are absolutely in the right place! We have a large team of amazing, hand-selected therapists to help you through almost anything! From anxiety to OCD to depression to relationship struggles to body image issues and beyond, we probably have the perfect therapist here for you.
