Practice Announcements

Find a Halifax PsychologistThe Halifax Psychologists and Registered Counselling Therapist at Cornerstone Psychological Services are pleased to be approaching their fourth year of private practice. Psychologist and clinic owner, Brad Peters, has seen the practice grow significantly since it opened in 2010.

Part of this growth is due to our convenient hours, timely appointments, and full-time reception staff, all of which help us to better serve the needs of our clients. With the option of morning, afternoon and evening appointments, clients can book appointments that suit their own schedule.

Our accessible Halifax location is another reason that clients choose our clinic. At our discreet clinic location, clients are just metres away from Quinpool Road and have access to free on-site parking. The space is perfectly suited to the kind of work we do; attractive designs and furnishings create a comfortable and professional atmosphere. Our clients never have to deal with stuffy oversized buildings, indoor parkades and elevators.

The primary reason for our success involves a skilled and dedicated team of psychologists and counselling therapists; male and female therapists who specialize in a number of mental health issues, including the treatment of depression, anxiety, stress, grief, trauma and relationship issues. Our psychologists and registered counselling therapist provide couples therapy and marriage counselling, family counselling, and individual therapy for adults and teens and adolescents. Our practitioners are trained in a number of theoretical models of therapy, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (STDP) and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). Our practice is expertly suited to address a wide variety of mental health related concerns.

As a result of our reputation for providing compassionate, accountable, informed mental health care, we have developed professional relationships with many local physicians, employee assistance programs, and various organizations.

We look forward to continuing to help clients overcome challenges and achieve their personal goals in the years to come.

Warm regards,

Practice News and Updates

Spring in Halifax, Nova ScotiaAs we dig our Halifax clinic out from beneath the snow, and anticipate the warm weather and long daylight hours of spring, we recognize that the seasonal transition can be a challenging time for some people. Mood difficulties and the stressful demands of “longer days” on busy family schedules may create a need for extra support during this time. We strive to accommodate the needs of clients, and are pleased to offer extended evening hours and additional support. This winter we welcomed psychologist (Cand. Reg.), Katherine Wilson, to our team. Katherine will be seeing adult clients three evenings per week. We’ve also expanded our services for teens and young adults. Due to the increasing demand for adolescent support, Dr. Carissa Clement joined Madeleine Stobbe and Brad Peters in providing therapy for teens.

This spring, we continue our efforts to demystify therapy and promote mental health, by offering informative resources about the therapy process, and examining emotional and mental concerns that impact our well-being.
Readers will find helpful topics in our latest blog posts, and articles of interest on our Facebook, Twitter and Google + pages. Our latest blog contributor and colleague, Katherine Wilson, recently shared tips for better sleep, while Madeleine Stobbe provided useful tools for talking with teens, and Suzanne Farmer discussed the significance of psychology in maintaining a healthy weight. Subscribe to our blog for upcoming blog posts, which will soon include a piece on Mindfulness by Carissa Clement.
Visitors to our YouTube channel can expect new videos about various therapy approaches, their benefits, and suggestions for getting the most from therapy. Through knowledge and transparency, we hope to reduce fears and misconceptions that prevent people from reaching out for support. We invite you to subscribe to our YouTube channel and tell us what topics you’d like to learn more about.

We’re also excited to be planning an upcoming public talk about Couples Therapy. Brad Peters’ previous public lecture was well attended, and the feedback received indicated that the community wants more of these events. The Couples Therapy discussion will be for anyone interested in relationship connections and better communication; whether you are involved in a new relationship, a long-term marriage or common-law union, single, separated, or divorced, we hope you will find value in this upcoming talk. Please keep checking back on our website and social media pages for further details.
