Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clinic Update:
Please be advised that at this time, and until further notice, all appointments will be offered via an online video platform or over telephone due to the concern around the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is a precautionary measure to help ensure the safety of others. We thank you for your understanding.
Additionally, we have expanded our hours and days to accommodate clients during this difficult time. And given the financial challenges this pandemic has led to, we are temporarily offering services on a sliding scale.
Please be advised, Newmarket Psychotherapy Team is NOT AN EMERGENCY SERVICE:
If you or someone you know is at risk of imminent harm, or is having suicidal thoughts, please call 911 or go directly to your nearest hospital emergency room.
I need support, what should I do?
What to expect at my first appointment?
Your therapist will ask you to fill out some standard paperwork, and begin to get to know you. Please remember that you are in control of this therapeutic experience. You must be honest with your therapist about what you feel is helpful and not helpful throughout your therapy sessions.
It is expected that you may feel apprehensive or nervous, especially at the beginning of therapy. It is not always easy to seek help or talk to someone about the issues you are trying to cope with. However, it is important to remember that as human beings, it is common to experience a variety of hardships at different times in life. We have all struggled, or are struggling. As therapists, we are here with a goal to help you find the right support, and to hopefully feel more at peace on your journey in life, no matter how challenging it may become.
