Psychotherapy

At The Mindfulness Centre, we provide opportunities for students and patients to seek help for themselves through a number of psychotherapeutic modalities.

Our approach builds resilience through living an authentic life and the exploration of one’s hidden unconscious personal truths. We emphasize exploring the sometimes uncomfortable realities we need to face rather than superficially validating what we want to hear.

Psychotherapy is a process through which clients work with a trained psychotherapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to address concerns that have affected their lives. The work includes exploring their feelings, beliefs, or behaviours, working through challenging or influential memories, identifying aspects of their lives that they would like to change, learning to better understand themselves and others, setting personal goals, and working toward desired change.

People seek psychotherapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma to dealing with depression or anxiety or simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. Depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy, the client and therapist may work together for as few as two to three sessions or as long as several years. The work may be more practical and advice-oriented (‘counselling’), or it may also entail more intense thought patterns restructuring or in-depth exploration of the unconscious forces affecting their lives (‘psychotherapy’). Individuals may also come to our therapists for the occasional session to check in and fine-tune their meditation techniques.

Our unique approach:

  • Incorporates mindfulness and the latest research from Interpersonal Neurobiology into the psychotherapeutic process
  • Dives deeply into how the mind interacts with the brain, and how disorder and rigidity can be transformed by rewiring the brain into integration and harmony
  • Facilitates the use of empathy and insight to foster a deeper understanding of self and others within relationships
  • Promotes the development of a coherent life narrative that facilitates a shift towards health and wellbeing
  • Includes trauma-specific interventions

Long-term psychodynamic group psychotherapy is provided by Dr. Treyvaud. These groups require a long-term commitment to weekly 2-hour sessions. Potential participants need to live productive lives and have a keen interest in the long-term work of discovering who they are, how their mind works, and how to use their mind in new ways for change and healing. A capacity and willingness to hear things about oneself one does not like to hear, is also essential. The group provides a respectful, supportive, and intimate environment, which allows participants to develop the capacity to be authentic, totally honest and direct, face fears head-on, and venture into painful, unpleasant, or dangerous neighbourhoods of their minds.

Dr. Treyvaud runs four such groups, Wednesdays and Thursdays 2:00-3:45 pm, and 4:15-6:00 pm. A referral from a family physician and a prior individual consultation with Dr. Treyvaud is required. If the consultation establishes that the group is indicated, participants are offered a spot in the group that has one available. It is important to stress that not everyone Dr. Treyvaud assesses ends up being suitable for these groups.

Cost: Services are covered by OHIP; because their spots cannot be given to someone else when they miss a session, patients have to pay out of their own pockets for all missed sessions.
