Prime Psychotherapy​

About our services 

Services & Issues:

We provide therapeutic services to a diverse group of clients that includes children, adolescents, and adults.

Treatment Approach

At Prime Psychotherapy, We practice different therapeutic orientations depending on the client’s unique needs. We use cognitive-behavioural (CBT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, client-centred, and mindfulness approach to help clients reduce distress and improve their sense of well-being. In many cases, an integrative approach is used to provide service excellence to our clients.

In addition to addressing whatever particular presenting problems have led the clients to seek therapy, we endeavour to foster greater self-awareness and self-compassion with every client. Every person is unique, and so is each experience of treatment. We have helped people regain confidence by working through unhealthy patterns holding them back, allowing them to live a more balanced and integrated life.

What to Expect

Meet and Greet Consultation

We discuss what has brought you into therapy, physical and mental health, and some background information about you during the first meeting. Generally, asking what you may be looking for from psychotherapy, what you want to achieve, and how it will look. It all depends on your needs. If we feel that the therapist cannot work with you for any reason, we will advise you in the first session and provide referrals to another therapist. You also have the right to notify us that you do not want to work with the therapist – you can be honest about this, and we will understand.

Duration and frequency of sessions

We usually see clients once a week for 50 minutes. We are flexible and can accommodate clients’ needs; depending on your schedule, we may want to meet more or less frequently than this (if clinically appropriate), or you may sometimes want to come for longer sessions.

The type, frequency, and duration of your treatment will be discussed at the initial consultation and revisited in due course. We tend to meet the client and on the same day and time every week – it’s essential to attend therapy regularly to get results; protecting some space in your diary makes this easier to achieve.

While it is important to try and attend regular weekly sessions, we understand that may be times when this is not possible, and we are happy to be flexible and work around these times with you.
