Psychotherapy is also referred to as "talk therapy". It is a highly collaborative process between you and your psychotherapist. Psychotherapy is used to help you explore your mental health and wellbeing. Through this exploration you can target your specific issues and learn how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours affect your mood and impact your daily life. With this valuable information you can begin to generate and test alternative view points. You will also begin to develop tools and strategies that you can use to target and cope with your specific issues.
The regulatory body for nurses, the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) is one of only 6 regulatory colleges who's members are permitted to provide the controlled act of psychotherapy.
In addition to my Registered Nurse (RN) license, I have also completed additional training to qualify as a Certified Nurse Psychotherapist (CPN/CNP).
