OUR APPROACH TO THERAPY

PsyVitalitï’s therapeutic approach uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as its main focus. All of our therapists in Edmonton are highly trained in this approach and it can be used to treat a variety of mental health conditions as well as help with many other personal and professional problems.

WHAT IS COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)?

CBT is a time-limited therapeutic approach that involves goal-setting. It is considered one of the most effective tools and is a treatment method used by mental health professionals around the globe. The therapy focuses on the present and the future. It seeks to identify and alter negative thought and behaviour patterns in order to facilitate more positive feelings and emotions.

Our team at PsyVitalitï can work with clients suffering from a range of conditions, and many of our psychologists in Edmonton can help with anxiety and depression. CBT is particularly helpful with these conditions.

Conquer Depression

Depression can manifest as a reduced appetite, loss of interest in things you once enjoyed, and overwhelming feelings of sadness, irritability, and fatigue. Our therapists in Edmonton are trained to use CBT to help you conquer these feelings and get you feeling yourself once more. If you’re unsure of the severity of your symptoms of depression, why not take our depression self-test to find out?

DEPRESSION SELF-TEST

Manage and Reduce Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety can be an overwhelming condition, but our psychologists and therapists in Edmonton specialize in the treatment of anxiety symptoms using CBT. To begin with, they will help you to identify anxious thoughts and how these manifest into emotional and physical symptoms. From here, they will equip you with the tools to cope with these feelings and help you to feel better. Unsure of the severity of your anxiety symptoms? Try our anxiety self-test now.
