Why Choose Forward Thinking

Finding the right therapist can be a challenge – we will work with you to ensure you have the right fit. This starts with the call with our intake coordinator, then a video conference meeting with your therapist during our no charge meet and greet process. During this call you can tell your potential therapist what you are looking for and ask about their approach. This is done to ensure you find the best fit therapist.  Your therapist will work with you throughout therapy in a collaborative manner to ensure your treatment is individualized and tailored to your needs.

Our approach is always collaborative and client-centered. We use various treatment approaches, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills.  Learn more about our treatment approaches offered throughout all of Ontario.

Our Services: Virtual Therapy in Ontario

Virtual therapy in Ontario at FTPS is offered through a secure tele-therapy platform. This ensures services are delivered to you in a confidential manner that adheres to all necessary privacy regulations. This allows you to feel comfortable and confident when logging into your session. This will allow you to engage fully in virtual therapy for CBT as well as any other virtual therapy services that are a good fit for you.

Virtual therapy services afford many benefits, including: 

  1. flexibility of scheduling
  2. accessibility of services from wherever you live
  3. benefits of working with a therapist right in your own home.

When engaging in virtual therapy for CBT, you will learn skills similar to what you would learn during in person CBT services. However, you are able to access this platform from anywhere in Ontario.

Virtual therapy for anxiety can be highly effective. The types of skills you will learn would include the following:

  • Learning connections between thoughts and feelings
  • Learning exposure therapy to face things that feel difficult
  • Learning cognitive skills, including thought record work

During virtual therapy for anxiety as well as OCD virtual therapy, you are also able to conduct exposure therapy work in the context of your own home. Why is this effective? When accessing virtual therapy in Ontario by an experienced psychologist or therapist, you will target triggers in the very environment in which they occur. This has many benefits over conducting this work in a traditional office space.

Virtual therapy in Ontario is offered right across the province. This includes Toronto, Ottawa, Mississauga, Brampton and Hamilton.  

For example, in OCD virtual therapy, an individual might want to work on decreasing the amount of time they spend brushing their teeth. They might have a lot of rituals when carrying out this daily routine. A teen or adult might want to do exposure therapy within their kitchen as they experience contamination-related OCD.

Of course, these exposure interventions would be difficult to work on in the context of an office setting. However, during virtual therapy for CBT, an individual can work on exposure therapy in real time. For example, one could coach an in-session exposure which could involve toothbrushing without any rituals as their therapist coaches them virtually in their bathroom. Or, we could work with you in your kitchen to prepare a meal and work on limiting or eliminating any potential rituals.

Adults and teens can access online therapy in Ontario for OCD right across the province. This includes London, Markham, Vaughan, Windsor and Kitchener.

We know it can also be difficult to find psychological services that focus on the treatment of OCD. This means that individuals living in places such as Sudbury, Thunder Bay, St. Catherine and Barrie can reach out to FTPS. No matter where you live in Ontario, we are ready to work with you!

Virtual therapy by an experienced psychologist or therapist could also involve exposures related to OCD themes of contamination, daily routines, laundry, showering and toileting. The possibilities are endless!

Virtual therapy for CBT can also allow therapists and clients to engage in screen sharing of collaborative worksheets and informative short videos. These are powerful tools that can enhance the work done together. Individuals can also share their screens and share in between session work they have done. Many clients find this to be very useful during virtual therapy for anxiety and OCD virtual therapy. 

Another benefit to virtual therapy for CBT is the accessibility. At FTPS, because we offer virtual therapy in Ontario, you can receive therapy services from absolutely anywhere in Ontario!

Virtual therapy has been shown to be effective. We can use it for a variety of different mental health concerns, including:

  • OCD and related disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Trauma
  • Emotion regulation
  • Relationship issues
  • Parenting issues

When our team provides virtual therapy in Ontario, we are able to include other family members living in different Ontario locations to be involved. For example, they can join at the end of a session and learn about important skills taught to their loved ones. This can help parents or other family members support their teen or loved one at home. They can also join at the beginning of a session to provide important updates. Joining virtual therapy by an experienced psychologist or therapist is very easy! Just log on securely and engage in the session! 

When you are doing virtual therapy by an experienced psychologist or therapist, your treatment has no limits! Your therapist can join you in any environment that would be beneficial to treatment – your home, a store, a crowded neighbourhood or public transportation. We can go with you to places that far surpass the limits of a therapist’s office.
