Psychotherapy and Social Work

Welcome to my site.  I know trying to find the appropriate services can be difficult, especially if you are not familiar with some of the terms used by professionals.  As a general guide, it is safe to say that the services are provided in the following ways described below although there are some areas where services will be similar.

Psychotherapy-  Involves the assessment and treatment “of cognitive, emotional or behavioural disturbances by psychotherapeutic means, delivered through a therapeutic relationship based primarily on verbal or non-verbal communication” (The Psychotherapy Act, 2007).

Social Work-The Ontario Association of Social Workers describes social work services in the following ways; we help families, individuals and communities find answers to questions, offer problem-solving tools and resources and provide psychotherapy and counselling.
