At Around the Corner Counselling, we offer therapy and assessment services to suit a wide range of needs. Experience the compassion, knowledge, expertise, and approachability of our therapists through a variety of services.
Our therapists work from an evidence-driven holistic perspective in their therapeutic work. We provide compassionate therapy with expertise treating a wide variety of clinical issues. We pride ourselves on using personally tailored, effective strategies including EMDR, CBT, CPT, ACT, mind-body, and client-centred therapies to help clients achieve their unique treatment goals and promote wellness in the whole person – mind, body, and spirit.
Collaborative Mind-Body Therapy
Recent research has taught us that mental and physical health are one and the same, with the mind and body impacting the other’s functioning in myriad ways. It only makes sense, then, to take a mind-body approach to our therapeutic work. Working collaboratively with Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapist, Shari Arial, our therapists are able to offer one-of-a-kind mind-body therapy that combines traditional talk therapy with a psychologist and trauma-informed yoga therapy with Shari. These powerful and moving sessions involve clients sharing each extended (1.5-2 hour) session between two very different yet complementary modalities, allowing them to fully process and integrate their traumatic experiences in both physiological and psychological ways.
Expressive Arts-Based Therapy
In addition to traditional talk therapy, Dr. Johnson is one of the world’s leading experts on using the creative process of film/video-making in therapy. For those who may want to try a different approach than more traditional talk therapy, this may be an excellent fit for you. For more information on this, please contact us with any questions, review the Therapeutic Filmmaking Institute website, or review one of the articles, chapters, or books Dr. Johnson has written on the subject.
We offer expert psychological assessment services with a professional comprehensive report completed within a fast turn-around time. We use personality assessment tools such as the MMPI-2-RF, MCMI-IV, and PAI, as well as additional screening tools such as the BDI, BAI, SASSI, and PCL-5 to prepare balanced, accurate reports on psychological functioning for individuals and organizations. These reports can aid in therapeutic goal-setting, improving personal insight, determining fitness to work, and a myriad of other applications.
