Compassionate delivery of psychological treatments that work.
An important message to our patrons and fellow British Columbians:
As you know, serious concerns have been expressed about the COVID-19 pandemic. Wise Mind Centre has responded to the calls of the BC and federal government to practice social distancing to slow down the spread of COVID-19. We are now offering clinical services by phone or online (via a secure, video-conferencing link) until further notice. This includes our clinical consultation, individual therapy, and group therapy sessions. There are more than 30 years of research showing that online therapy is as effective as face to face therapy for a variety of psychological concerns. We have been providing online services to clients throughout BC including the islands. At this time of uncertainty, our clinicians are committed to assisting those in need of emotional support and scientifically supported treatments. If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, mood problems or any of the concerns described below, we are here to help. If you have extended health coverage for psychological services, this may be a great time to take advantage of it now. Our clinicians have increased our availability for online appointments and will be able to assist you quickly. You can book an appointment right away by going to our clinic's online booking page and check out our clinicians' availability by month.
PLEASE STAY HOME. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. TOGETHER WE CAN BEAT COVID-19. HANG IN THERE.
Wise Mind Centre is a Vancouver-based psychology clinic that provides clinical consultation, assessment, and scientifically supported treatments to adolescents, adult clients, and loved ones of individuals suffering from mental illness. Our team is comprised of primarily psychologists who are regulated by the College of Psychologists of BC under the Health Professions Act. We help individuals struggling with a variety of psychological problems, including anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, substance use, eating problems, parenting difficulties, self-harm behavior, trauma, suicidal ideations, post-traumatic stress disorder, interpersonal difficulties, emotion regulation difficulties, and borderline personality disorder. Our clinicians are experienced in providing evidence-based treatments such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Many of our clinicians also utilize mindfulness-based treatments in our service.
Why choose to work with a psychologist? Psychologists in general have approximately 10 years of post-secondary education, over 3000 hours of supervised practical training, a rigorous registration process, and the requirements of ongoing continuing education, maintenance of ethical standards and regular practice reviews.
Wise Mind Centre is also a clinical training site for advanced graduate trainees in clinical psychology programs at University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and Adler University. We offer services provided by master-level and doctoral-level trainees working under the supervision of a registered psychologist for a reduced fee.
