More Online Groups have launched! 
 
In 2020, we launched a Mindfulness Workshop and a Self Love Group online and on a drop-in basis. Strengthening Families Counselling Group also began online through our student clinician. These groups are in addition to our long-standing CBT and DBT-Infused Groups that transitioned online earlier in the year.

A Message from North Simcoe Therapy Network (March 2020)


We understand that there is increased anxiety associated with COVID-19 and we encourage everyone to take appropriate precautions such as limiting social contacts and participating in hand washing protocols. That said, we know that the stress associated with this is causing a lot of emotional distress in our community and among our clients. 

 

We want to remind clients to focus on maintaining their mental health – this is an ideal time to increase mindfulness practice, stay focussed on healthy routines, exercise, eat well, practice sleep hygiene, avoiding alcohol/substance use, review CBT skills, review DBT skills, read recovery-based material, talk to professional supports, etc. to reduce unnecessary distress and suffering. 

 

Needing Support

 

If you are in need of immediate mental health support please call the Mental Health Crisis Line at 705-728-5044.

 

If you require non-crisis support from a professional via video conference or phone, please contact our office. 

  • For  psychotherapy from a Registered Psychotherapist, we are continuing to accept new clients. 

 

  • For low/no cost options, please inquire about Student Clinicians. 

 

We are genuinely invested in helping you and our community through this time and ask that you let us know if/when we can.
