PSYCHOLOGY SERVICES

Providing patients with the tools to live happier

Individual Psychological services at the Chokka Center are focused on our psychologists providing patients with the tools to live a happier, well-intentioned life. Our psychologists empathetically help people to achieve their full potential so they can become the person they always thought they could be.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Providing patients with the tools to live happier

Cognitive behaviour therapy: treatment that is widely used for conditions such as depression and anxiety. This therapy emphasizes cognitive, behavioural, and environmental factors in your treatment to influence your mood and behaviour.

 

Mindfulness: is the practice of purposely focusing your attention on the present moment, and accepting it without judgment. Mindfulness as a meditation technique helps shift your thoughts away from your usual preoccupations toward a larger perspective on life.

Positive Psychology: to move beyond the treatment of mental illness to study the basis of positive human emotions – positive emotions, personal characteristics of integrity, a person’s complete engagement in activities, and one’s quest for meaning and happiness.

 

Supportive Therapy: therapeutic treatment that involves reviewing your symptoms, your relationships, everyday functioning, and your unique patterns of emotional responses and behaviours – monitoring and challenging your automatic thoughts, and developing alternative ways of thinking.

ROI AND WELL-BEING

Real solutions for Mental Health in the workplace

At The Chokka Center for Integrative Health we have innovated a new medical protocol that we like to call the “IMET”, or Integrative Medical Evaluation and Treatment.

Investing in IMET means Canadian corporations and employers reduce long-term disability claims and co-commitment costs associated with long, drawn out third party processes. IMET increases your company’s return on investment–dollar for dollar–while also keeping your employee’s well being as the central focus.

CLINICAL RESEARCH TRIALS

National and International clinical drug trials


Have you ever wondered how a new drug obtains approval in order to be sold to patients? Or why some therapies are recommended by your doctor for one condition, but not for another similar condition? It all comes down to research.

Researchers at The Chokka Center for Integrative Health are frequently invited to participate in national and international clinical drug trials due to the high quality of data produced and our adherence to the most stringent ethical practices.
