Guiding and inspiring people to shift old patterns and build the lives they want to live
We are a small psychotherapy clinic near the Beaches and the Danforth that focuses on creating a positive and safe environment for each of our clients.
With this in mind we offer your first session FREE!
Lots of us struggle with challenges that come up at various times in our lives. Sometimes it is one major event and sometimes it is many small events that can be overwhelming in time. Either way, accessing talk therapy as a means of being heard, organizing your thoughts, gaining clarity, and getting motivated is a healthy way of managing during those times that seem utterly unmanageable.
At the Heitmann Centre our goal is to support individuals in distress to regain their equilibrium, hope, self-esteem and joy. We support people in finding a way to accept where they are in this moment (rather than where they wish they were or think they should be) and take the steps necessary to help them move closer to the life they want to live.
That said, whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma or any other challenge to your mental health, therapy is hard work. We know that each person we see is strong, has survived and does not need to be rescued but rather supported and guided to his or her own decision. We can’t do the work for you but we can support and guide you through it.
“The most beautiful people I’ve known are those who have known trials, have known struggles, have known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.”
~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
