Clinical Psychology

There are many different approaches in Psychology. At Clinique PsySanté, we customize your therapy according to your needs.

Here is a description of the various approaches we use:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a successful form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping you change the way you feel by choosing a new way of thinking. For instance, if you feel sad, it is likely that you had a sad thought that preceded the emotion.

By addressing your negative pattern of thinking, we can find healthy alternative thoughts to replace them. CBT is a great tool that allows you to see life and reality more clearly, similar to taking off dark sunglasses and being able to see the true colors of our world.

Why would you consult?

  • Are feeling depressed?
  • Do you have a low self-esteem?
  • Are you anxious all the time?
  • Do you tend to see the glass as half empty most of the time?

Systemic Therapy

Systemic therapy views a problem as a whole. People are social beings, and interpersonal relationships play a large role in our lives. Using a systemic approach we seek to understand the particular dynamics that play out in the group setting, such as your romantic relationships, your family, your workplace organization or your sports team. Each member of a group plays a role in allowing a problem to persist.

When each member understands his or her role and responsibility in affecting the whole, a new way of communicating occurs! This empowers all the members of the group. Here, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole!


Why would you consult?

  • Is your family life struggling?
  • Do you have trouble motivating your staff?
  • Are you having marital difficulties?
  • Does your team need more synergy?

Psychodynamic Therapy

Did you know that your general attitude, self-esteem and emotions originate in your formative years of childhood? Psychodynamic therapy is a very helpful therapeutic process that allows you to gain insight into why you are experiencing personal conflict, emotional difficulties, or dysfunctional relationships.

By gaining awareness of the origins of your issues, you will learn a lot about yourself and be able to make better life choices, and lead a healthier, more peaceful existence! This process is like gardening, where you will clear out the weeds in your beautiful garden!

Why would you consult?

  • Are feeling chronically depressed?
  • Do you have a low self-esteem?
  • Do you tend to have problematic relationships?
  • Do you have trouble managing your emotions?
  • Are you recognizing that you are making the same mistakes over and over again?

Imagery and Hypnosis

Imagery and hypnosis are amazing tools that help change unhealthy behavior patterns. We use these tools as a complement to a behavior modification program, where we look at all aspects of a problematic situation.

These interventions work by getting the brain to create new neural associations and process information in a healthier way. By changing the automatic images the brain plays out, we affect the unconscious and reprogram the mind. The process of imagery and hypnosis is much like a film director who creates a movie by selecting the characters, the plot, the theme and the outcome. Come be the film director of your life movie!

Why would you consult?

  • Are you going through a life challenge or life change?
  • Would you like to find meaning in your life circumstances?
  • Are you feeling that you need to change something but don’t know what?
  • Do you believe that your mind and body are inter-related?
  • Are you looking to feel better with a short-term approach?
