Virtual Service - Counselling and Therapy

UPDATED SERVICE -
It can be tough to make that first step towards counseling , especially if you are just starting out. The choice to pursue counseling is entirely yours to make and a deeply personal choice at that. It is for this specific reason that we offer free consultations during which you can get to know the counselor, and get a sense for my style and delivery (fit).
Counseling is very much an inclusive form of therapy which supports both women and men of all ages and backgrounds. The goal of every session is to support a variety of issues the client may be experiencing. Together, the counselor and client work to affect positive changes in the way the client thinks, feels and behaves both individually and in social settings. Clients who often seek counselling when they are experiencing, and want to improve, any of the following:
• Anxiety
• Grief
• Depression
• Trauma
• Simply want to embark on your own self exploration
• Dealing with pain
During each session, the counselor respectfully explores the client’s concerns in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment. The goal of each session is typically mutually agreed upon by both the client and counselor, with clear and focused boundaries during their conversation. Centered on promoting authenticity, compassion and acceptance, professional social workers work collaboratively with clients to promote individual well being. Initial and follow up appointments are available with our registered social worker Khadija Kanji via a secure and easy to use virtual platform. We are currently conducting these service virtually only. If you are unable to find your preferred date and time, please call our office at 905-607-2323. We will inform you once in person appointments are again available.

Osteopathy

A safe and non-invasive healing therapy, Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy, also simply referred to as Osteopathy, is a technique focused on the interrelationship between the structure and functions of the body. Osteopathy is based on the premise that the body can self-heal and self-regulate. This truly is a methodology, a belief system, which is behind this modality. Therefore, practitioners are facilitating the healing taking place by treating the entire body, not just singular, individual physical conditions.
Osteopathic Treatments are conducted with the use of manual readjustments, myofascial release (the release of pain which is caused by muscle irritation) and other physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bones. The position, quality and mobility of the body are used to both assess and treat the body for any symptoms which are present.
Often described as a “combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy,” the main difference between osteopathy and chiropractic care is that an Osteopathic practitioner can manually assess and treat the body’s organs which require assistance to function optimally. Treatments typically involve the patient laying comfortably on a professional massage table while the practitioner conducts their treatment. Session lengths can vary depending upon the needs of the patients and as determined by the Osteopathic practitioner.
Interestingly, The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognised the Osteopathic concept of somatic dysfunction as being scientifically proven.

Manual Stretching Physiotherapy

Working with a physiotherapist ensures that the right muscles are being stretched and avoids stretching already long and weak muscles.

It's important to make stretching a regular part of your life. These sessions will help keep you loose and will teach you how to stretch correctly and safely. Whether you want to improve athletic performance, want to be stretched out by a professional, or you want to reduce pain, these sessions are highly customizable to your needs.
