About

Wise Mind Centre is a Vancouver-based psychology clinic that provides assessment and scientifically supported treatments to adolescents, adult clients, and loved ones of individuals suffering from mental illness. Our psychologists help individuals struggling with a variety of psychological problems, including anxiety, OCD, depression, substance use, emotional eating, parenting difficulties, self-harm, trauma, suicidal ideations, PTSD, interpersonal difficulties, marital problems, and BPD. We offer primarily CBT, DBT, and mindfulness-based treatments. You may book online with us directly here: https://wisemindcentre.janeapp.com/.
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.
You do not need to suffer in quiet desperation. Our experienced psychologists understand stress, anxiety and suffering. We are here to help you figure out things that get in the way of you achieving goals in life. We teach you skills to change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that you want to change. Our goal is to train you to become your own therapist.
