The Psychotherapy Program offers individual sessions of brief psychotherapy to patients of the Chatham-Kent Family Health Team who are over the age of 12. Skilled psychotherapists will meet with patients who would like to obtain a positive mental health outlook. Patients are required to attend all necessary sessions which occur over a two month period. Two no-show appointments or late cancellations will require a re-referral. Not giving 24 hr. notice is considered a no-show. Sessions will focus on topics such as:
- Stress Management
- Work related issues
- Self-Esteem Enhancement
- Grief, Loss, Adjustment
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy classes are also offered to patients who belong to the Chatham-Kent Family Health Team. Groups are led by skilled psychotherapists and meet patients for two hours a week for eight weeks. This is an educational class that focuses on teaching individual goal setting, understanding thoughts and emotions, stress management, coping with anxiety and worry, and creating a balanced life. Please talk to your Health Care Provider, if you would like a referral for either individual or group counselling.
