Support That Makes a Difference


Psychotherapy Services

At Georgian Waters we provide help with a broad variety of mental illness and emotional difficulties. We aim to improve overall well-being and healing. 
Some common problems helped by psychotherapy include difficulties in coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental disorders, like depression or anxiety. We have therapists working with modalities including EMDR, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, narrative therapy, and more. 
We offer individual, couples and family therapy.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a best-practice, evidence-based psychotherapy approved by international health and government regulatory bodies throughout the world. EMDR mobilizes the brain's own healing abilities. EMDR first became recognized because of its effectiveness with individuals experiencing PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) with symptoms like flashbacks, phobias and panic attacks. EMDR is also effective with anxiety, depression, intrusive thoughts, irritability, worrying, disturbed sleep, and more.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy treatment that empowers you to take control over your thoughts to embrace your emotions. CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, disordered eating, low self-esteem, anger problems, addiction.CBT gives you a new way of understanding and thinking about your problem. It also provides you with the skills to deal with the issues that you are struggling with right now.
