Brian Baumal, Toronto Psychotherapist - Accepted By Most Extended Health Care Insurance Plans

In today’s world, if you’re wrestling with a problem or wanting to make change you no longer have to ask yourself “where do I turn”? With all the self-help options available, the real question is “What is going to work?” Psychotherapy works because it is a structured process that addresses your issues and symptoms through responsible, ordered, safe and rigorous exploration. I also belive that with hope and healing comes a bit of humour and humanity.  I am not one of those therapists that sits silently asking how you feel. While emotional recognition is a part of change, if I repeadly ask you "How do you feel about that?" feel free to throw a Kleenex box at me.  Constantly harping on that aspect of therapy is not a very human approach.

To understand me, psychotheapy and my approach a bit further, I have three blog posts that may be of interest - When Do You Know It's Time To See A Therapist, The Limits Of Getting Self-Help From Friends And Family and Really, Really Tough Questions About Therapy.
