Making Mental Health a Priority
It can be easy to put off taking care of your mental health when we face what seem to be more urgent issues or physical illnesses. However, many studies show that good mental health is key to overall health and wellness. To ensure we continue to offer our clients the best holistic care possible, we’ve expanded our mental health practice at SPHC.
Learn first hand from our team of mental health practitioners – a psychologist, psychiatrist and psychotherapist – why therapy could be the key to your journey of self-improvement, and overall health.
- “Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors (an M.D. or D.O.) who specialize in mental health and are trained in psychotherapy. This allows us to see people through a unique lens of science, medicine and psychology, however, at the heart of truly therapeutic interaction is the ability to empathize, connect and provide hope.” – Dr. Mandeep Singh, Psychiatrist
- “Therapy is right for anyone trying to get more out of his or her life through a conscious effort to make a significant life change. There are many reasons why people seek out therapy, ranging from depression and anxiety to just wanting to engage in some personal reflection and growth. Psychologists can provide support, tools, and insight into yourself and your behaviours.” – Careen Coetzee, Registered Psychologist
- “In my training as a therapist, a life coach and a yoga teacher, I have come to deeply respect the integrative nature of well-being. I work with my clients to facilitate the kind of change that can be felt in the mind, body and spirit. My goal is to create an environment in which we can work together to overcome life’s challenges through growth, insight and support.” – Irina Mirazizyan, Psychotherapist
At Simcoe Place Health Clinic, we are proud to offer a variety of mental health services and therapy to address our clients’ needs. Please note, psychiatry is covered by OHIP and psychology services are covered by most extended health insurance plans.
