Announcement icon Hi there, I am seeing new clients online through a secure, private platform called Virtual Care - or Doxy or Zoom - your choice.

About

COVID-19 Update *I continue to see clients via secure online video and phone sessions.* My practice includes a range of people and issues and I enjoy that diversity. You bring a curiosity about yourself and a desire for something different in your life. A common denominator is your need to be seen and heard for who you are. I am honoured to be an insightful guide to my clients as they discover and express themselves more authentically.
The main therapy method I work with is Gestalt - which can be quite creative. In addition to talk therapy, we may explore avenues to expression through sensory awareness, art therapy, role playing and others. This allows clients to tap into the wisdom you hold, enabling shifts in perspective and ingrained patterns.
My background is diverse and comes with compassion born of experience that enables me to connect well with people from many walks of life. Clients tell me they are surprised by how comfortable they are when we meet and they feel respected by the process we engage in.

Laura Hetherington's Groups

Small Therapy Groups

Interested in therapy but find the fess too high? Why not try a small therapy group that will give you the benefits of a group, where you'll still receive individual attention. We will cover issues that are pressing for you, with some likely topics including Relationships, Healthy Communication, Boundaries, Life Transitions, Intimacy, Loneliness, Anxiety, Empowerment and Stress. While therapy is certainly serious, we will also have some fun as we explore these issues in creative ways. Laura Hetherington is a Registered Psychotherapist, licensed with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (#001543) and is an active member of the OACCPP.
