Who We Are

Hi, welcome to the Turning Point! We are a team of psychologists, psychotherapists, and counsellors, but you can also call us Anxiety Warriors!

What We Do

We help people who wish they could live their lives to the fullest, but hold themselves back because of worries and fears.

We support them in overcoming the obstacles to their best life so that they can progress toward their goals.  

Why?

Many of us know from our own life journeys that overcoming fear, doubt, and inertia can be tough. We also know, however, from helping hundreds of patients (and counting!) that the courageous first step of seeking help may open the door to discovering your best self and bridging the gap between where you currently are and where you want to be.  

Anxiety does not have to run your life! We believe that, to paraphrase George Addair, everything you ever wanted maybe on the other side of fear. That’s why we hope you give us a call and allow yourself to experience change.

It is often not easy to take that first step.

You may be looking at this website because you feel that you are finally ready to explore new ways of addressing your problem.

You may have considered seeking psychological treatment, but have kept postponing making the call because you may have perceived it as a sign of weakness, or were worried about being judged or misunderstood, or hoped that the issue will resolve on its own.

Maybe you are ashamed of having a difficult relationship with your family, or because you experience embarrassing intrusive thoughts.

Or you may have sought therapy before, but felt that it was not helpful. 

The first goal of all our therapists is to create a comfortable nonjudgemental environment for you to feel safe.  Sometimes it is difficult to share your fears, thoughts, or emotions with friends and family. They may have a hard time relating to your concerns, they may jump straight into reassuring you that everything will be all right, or they may feel uncomfortable not knowing what to say.

As therapists, we are trained to listen empathically to people’s stories, ask questions, and not jump onto conclusions. We understand that while we are the experts in psychological treatment, YOU are the true expert in your life and yourself. We, therefore, will work collaboratively with you to help you overcome difficulties and achieve your goals.

Many of our therapists have unique and complex life experiences (living in foreign countries, changing career paths, going through major life transitions, struggling with parenting challenges, overcoming significant emotional and physical difficulties). In fact, I take life experience of the therapists into consideration when selecting new associates to work on our team, - along with their interpersonal skills, proficiency in evidence-based psychological treatment approaches, willingness to engage in ongoing continuing education, and, most important, the Growth Mindset.
