The aim of psychotherapy is a collaborative therapeutic working relationship, assessment of difficulties and symptoms, challenging thinking patterns and changing maladaptive behaviour.
All services are based on a 60-minute session. Services required are determined and mutually agreed upon between client and therapist as the need arises.
Rest assured that all services provided are kept in strict confidentiality unless express consent is agreed upon by the client, where other medical professionals are required for consultation.
Gillian Strange-Dell offers a general practice of psychotherapy providing support in a diverse set of areas including anxiety, anger management, depression, insomnia, addiction recovery, eating disorder recovery, surviving abuse, relationship difficulties, workplace stress, parental stress, and grief.
The foundation for psychotherapy treatment is communication between the client and the therapist through talking. In the sessions, the therapy work focuses on the client’s emotional, relational, cognitive and behavioral difficulties. The work progresses as the client/therapist relationship becomes increasingly trusting.
Gillian Strange-Dell holds an Hon B.F.A., a B.A. Psych and was trained in Psychotherapy at the Institute for Studies in Psychotherapy and Emotional Bodywork (ISPEB). She is currently taking clients at her office in Courtice, servicing Oshawa, Whitby, Bowmanville, and Newcastle.
