Veritas Psychotherapy and Counselling Psi



 Veritas Psychotherapy and Counselling is a private mental health clinic based in Huntsville, Muskoka and serving communities across Ontario. Veritas provides evidence-based treatment to address a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and trauma.

Serving teenagers and adults, Veritas utilizes a variety of therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic, emotion-focused, exposure, and cognitive behavioural therapy. An integrative approach to therapy allows treatment to be tailored to the unique psychological needs of each individual.

Veritas Psychotherapy and Counselling Psi



Veritas is Latin for truth, which is a central value in our therapeutic approach. People have a tendency to mask what they are actually experiencing, subscribing instead to behaviour dictated by social norms. Over time, suppressed emotional suffering manifests itself in disorders such as anxiety, explosive anger, panic attacks, addiction, and depression.

While many modern therapies focus on treating surface symptoms, Veritas Psychotherapy and Counselling believes in getting to the root of the suffering to help clients gain insight so that they can truly grow, heal, and flourish.

Psychotherapy can be helpful for a wide range of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as for individuals who are struggling with issues related to stress, relationships, or personal growth.

There are many benefits to psychotherapy, including:

Improving symptoms: Psychotherapy can help reduce the intensity and frequency of symptoms associated with mental health conditions, such as depressed mood, anxiety, or difficulty with impulse control.

Increasing coping skills: Psychotherapy can help individuals develop coping strategies and skills to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in healthy ways.

Improving relationships: Psychotherapy can help individuals improve their relationships with others by teaching them communication and conflict resolution skills, as well as helping them understand and address underlying issues that may be causing difficulties in their relationships.

Enhancing self-awareness: Psychotherapy can help individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their motivations, and their patterns of thinking and behavior. This can lead to increased self-awareness and self-acceptance, which can be helpful for personal growth and development.

Promoting change: Psychotherapy can help individuals identify and work towards achieving personal goals and make positive changes in their lives.

Providing support: Psychotherapy can provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings and receive guidance and feedback from a trained professional.
