Cognitive behavioural therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behaviour patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression. This program is available for existing Circle of Care clients, family members and caregivers ONLY.
Circle of Care is pleased to partner with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Circle of Care clients/caregivers/family members. Services are provided by a Registered Psychotherapist, from Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 5:30pm, and are offered online through the OTN-Guestlink (Ontario Telemedicine Network), part of Ontario Health.
Sessions run 50 minutes and are free of charge for clients & caregivers. Clients/caregivers will attend anywhere from 12-16 sessions.
What is expected of clients?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy requires a great deal of commitment and is not a “quick fix”. Clients will have to attend weekly sessions and actively participate in session and between sessions. Clients will be required to complete out of session practice assignments to help strengthen the skills that they are learning with their therapist.
Clients should be aware that therapy is most effective when attended weekly, therefore we require clients to attend regularly so that they are able to gain the maximum benefit of this program.
Attend via the Ontario Telehealth Network (OTN) from home (Wi-Fi and computer access required).
Meetings are not currently offered in-person, due to the pandemic.
