The Halifax Psychologists and Registered Counselling Therapist at Cornerstone Psychological Services are pleased to be approaching their seventh year of private practice.
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.
