Welcome to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Skills Groups
Are you dealing with a mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or ADHD and wish you knew ways to better support yourself? Do you want to develop tools to help you cope better with your feelings, and live life more intentionally? Or are you a parent who wants to discover ways to better support your young child’s emotional growth?
We are here to support your learning.
We are a group of doctors who offer a series of psychoeducational and skills-training groups suitable for people with mild-to-moderate anxiety or depression (CBT Skills Foundations Group), ADHD (Skills for Success) and for parents of children age 0-6 (Raising Resilient Kids). Our programs are informative, empowering, and practical. You will develop awareness of your patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving, and be supported to make more intentional choices and build habits to improve your mental health.
Designed by psychiatrists and taught by physicians, these courses integrate neuroscience, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy skills and concepts. Many have described them as like an “owner’s manual” for living as human beings. Courses are offered virtually and in-person (in some centres).
All programs are 8-week series, conducted in groups with up to 14 others. The groups are like classrooms, not therapy groups, but the support of the group and inspiration of learning from others is often a highlight of the experience.
In response to COVID-19 all of the CBT Skills Groups are offered virtually, with in-person group returning to certain areas.
