Frequently Asked Questions about therapy

People have a lot of questions about working with a therapist, and that is why we have compiled some of the most common questions we receive. If you have any additional questions, feel free to get in touch with us and we will be happy to speak with you further.

Frequently Asked Questions:

A: There are any number of reasons a child may need the help of a psychologist. Many parents falsely assume their child won’t benefit from therapy if they have not experienced severe trauma, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We can help children with behavioural problems, short-term stress, anxiety from bullying and other things that parents may assume are just part of childhood. We can also provide more intensive treatments for children who have developmental delays, autism, sensory disorders, or experiences with loss, abuse and other more severe circumstances.

A: An occupational therapist is someone who helps patients learn and master skills related to everyday life. This may include simple tasks such as getting dressed, buttoning a shirt, or brushing teeth as well as more advanced tasks.

A: A cognitive assessment involves giving a range of tests or questions that help us determine yourself or your child’s strengths and weaknesses in order to identify gaps in learning or abilities. This allows us to better determine which therapies would be most beneficial to your needs.

A: This will depend on the type of therapy, as well as the reasons for undergoing treatment. Physiological and occupational therapies are often temporary and end once goals have been reached. Counselling may not be a linear process. You may attend counselling to help you work through a particular issue, and then you may not need to talk to a therapist as often. But you may decide to go back to counselling at any time as stresses arise throughout your life.
