The Anxiety Clinic|
The Anxiety Clinic is designed to assist individuals and their families with the often-debilitating effects of anxiety disorders and stress related reactions. The clinic incorporates well-researched assessment and treatment methods that are therapeutically effective and cost efficient. There are many types
of anxiety that can be successfully treated. The clinic psychologists have years of clinical experience working with a vast array of human problems. Services include:
Assessment: Clients referred to the Anxiety Clinic will receive a comprehensive assessment to determine the nature of their problems. This may include a detailed history, behavioural measures, cognitive measures, and psychological tests. The purpose of this assessment process is to establish the nature of the problem, the factors that influence its appearance, the best treatment option, and to assist in ongoing evaluation of our interventions. Psychological reports may be prepared at the client's request.
Therapy: The integrated treatment is multi-dimensional and includes the options of individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy. Behaviour therapy, cognitive interventions, biofeedback, hypnosis, and family support are all components of the treatment process that may be offered to clients. Consultation with the client's physician is also a critical component of the treatment as medical intervention is sometimes necessary. Although most of the clinic business occurs in the office, home visits may be useful in some situations.
Training and Consultation: The psychologists are also available for consultation and training. Training in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders is available upon request.
