A good relationship with your psychologist is key to unlocking therapy’s many benefits, and includes important factors such as empathy, warmth, trust, respect, shared goals, genuineness and connection.
But not all therapists and therapies are equally effective.
Whenever possible, we use evidence-based therapies. These therapies are scientifically tested, with evidence suggesting they work both effectively and efficiently. Using techniques based on current research increases your chances of success while saving you time and money. Because evidence-based therapies evolve as more research is conducted, we are always updating our knowledge and skills.
At CRUX, we are experts in several evidence-based individual therapies:
- Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
- Behavioural therapy
- Dialectical behaviour therapy
- Emotion-focused therapy
- Interpersonal therapy
- Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy
- Motivational interviewing
We also provide individual therapy using other approaches not listed above. For individual therapy, we work with adolescents (12 to 18 years of age) and adults (19 years of age or older). We serve Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island and Alberta.
