Our psychology clinic has been the cornerstone of our services since Mindspace was founded in 2011, and boasts a diverse, experienced team of PhD-level psychologists.

Our practical approach to therapy aims for measurable results in a brief timeframe. Your psychologist will work with you to develop a personalized and structured therapy program, combining techniques from science-based approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotion-Focused therapy (EFT).

We’ll equip you with tools and strategies for managing difficult thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. With your new toolkit, you’ll be able to focus your attention on what really counts: achieving your goals and living according to your values in the long run.

Whether you’re suffering from depression, anxiety, chronic stress, anger or irritability, relationship problems, trauma or grief, Mindspace can help you recover, find balance, and learn to thrive, according to your own values. We also offer coaching for individuals who just need a little bit of guidance to navigate life’s latest challenge.

Most emotional and psychological obstacles arise from relationships of some kind, and often our closest partners are the ones with whom we need the most support. This can feel even more challenging when that relationship is the hub of family unit, or operating from non-heteronormative models. Whatever your challenge as a couple, Mindspace can help find a path forward that’s healthiest for you.

Often the problems that plague us later in life begin in our more formative years, and properly assessing and intervening can make a big difference in long-term wellbeing. Whether you have concerns about attention deficit and hyperactivity, low self-esteem or obsessive-compulsive behaviours, MindSpace can help your child and your family overcome these obstacles and pave the way for a healthy adulthood.
