What is Psychotherapy?

The goal of psychotherapy is to help you relieve distress, find new ways of coping with your challenges, and to develop the “mindset” that will help you to obtain your goals.  It is a form of treatment where the client and therapist work together collaboratively to explore unhelpful attitudes, behaviours, and habits and seeks to change them. 

Psychotherapy is about learning about yourself, your capabilities,  and how to connect more mindfully. It can help  to resolve issues from the past, resolve inner conflicts, and release suppressed and buried emotions.  Overall, Psychotherapy is an investment into a relationship with  your therapist where you will receive the support you need. 

Psychotherapy can also be an exciting process.  Our brains are wired in such a way where “learning about ourselves,” is linked to “feeling good.”  This is an important survival response to get out of the  “stuck state cycle.” With more knowledge and understanding there is more choice and confidence to solve problems and move forward successfully. 


Starting Therapy

Starting therapy can be challenging and experiencing anxiety at the onset is normal.  Therapy is a process and it takes a bit of time  to be able to get to the place where you can feel comfortable opening up and sharing your story. We understand what it means to start this journey. Every effort on our part will be made to make you feel accepted, validated,  and supported  with the issues you bring. Our mission is to ensure that you gain the knowledge, skills and tools to feel empowered to overcome the obstacles that you may be facing. Our therapists are trained in evidence-based,  cutting-edge therapies which are designed to help you make sense of your experience, identify patterns that no longer serve you,  and learn the behaviours that will bring lasting  change.

Getting Started & The Process 

Call or email our intake specialist for your telephone intake assessment.  Our intake specialist will explain the therapeutic process more in detail and answer any questions that you may have.  Perhaps you have a therapist already in mind or maybe you would like us to chose a therapist for you.  Regardless, our intake specialist will provide you detailed information on our Registered Social Workers and Psychotherapists  and their areas of expertise. We will ensure that you will be referred to a therapist who is best suited to meet your unique needs. Please expect approximately 20 minutes to complete the intake process by phone. Your first session will be scheduled for you by the intake specialist. Ongoing sessions may be directly booked with your therapist or conveniently online. If you will be using insurance benefits for the cost of therapy, please have this information available at the time of the intake. 

FOR ONLINE APPOINTMENTS:  If you are seeing your therapist via online video conferencing, our intake team will get you set up and ready. Our software is easy to use. You will simply receive a link to access the “virtual waiting room,” through your appointment  confirmation email. When it is time for your appointment, simply click the link and you therapist will appear on your screen.  No complicated set ups or downloads. All our documentation between you and your therapist are moderated by secure methods. 

First Meeting with Your Therapist. The first meeting with your therapist is very important. Your therapist needs to gather pertinent information  including your current functioning, background history, medications and other  health related information.  It is important to have this information available for your therapist.  Your therapist may also administer some questionnaires which may provide further information about your current functioning.   

Treatment Plan:  By the second or third session your therapist will have a treatment plan completed fo you. The treatment plan will include mutually agreed goals to work through, the underlying mechanisms  perpetuating symptoms, and the therapeutic modalities that will be used in therapy.   Your therapist may recommend other services  including workshops, group therapy programs, or other wellness services that may be beneficial. 

Duration of Therapy:  There is no set time for therapy. Our therapists work both in brief therapy models (therapy lasting between 6 and 10 sessions) or long term therapy (lasting months or even years).  In many instances finances and time are limitations. Our therapists are trained in therapeutic modalities that are “brief” in nature but also work towards accelerating the therapeutic process by minimizing or resolving persistent and distressful symptoms. Your therapist may recommend commencing therapy weekly, but then gradually transitioning you to bi-weekly and monthly appointments.   Empirical research evidence does suggest regular, consistent  therapy produces  better outcomes. 

Satisfaction in Therapy:  We want to make sure that you are satisfied with the service you are receiving at Newmarket Therapy Centre. If you are experiencing difficulties with your therapist, or feel that you are not progressing in therapy, we want to know.    Please inform our intake specialist if you have concerns.  If a therapist change is required, or if clients want to try other therapies provided by other therapists, we can co-ordinate the transition for you.

When we open ourselves to our vulnerabilities, we claim our authentic power

Jason Koenigbaur  and Jodie Lindley are   the founders of Newmarket Therapy Centre. Jason and Jodie  saw a vision for a “healing community,” in the heart of downtown Newmarket. This vision became a reality when the centre opened its doors in March of  2018 at 436 Queen Street, in historic downtown Newmarket. Jason, a Registered Psychotherapist, had been practicing for over 15 years in York Region providing counselling and psychotherapy services to adults, couples, and teens. During his career he saw so many people  suffering from distressful emotions that were based in painful memories form the past which had not been resolved. 

Jason made it a mission to study the therapies that would help people safely release the past in ways that would empower them and return their “core essence.” Jason met Jodie, a Registered Massage Therapist, who had a passion for restoring  the relationship between the mind and body.  Jodie felt as people released  pain from their body that their  mental health would improve and a greater sense of self would emerge.   Together Jason and Jodie are a pioneering a movement towards the reconciliation of the mind and body, and allowing our clients to feel joy of being HUMAN and being ALIVE!    We invite you to be part of the experience at our centre and our growing community. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about out therapists and services.  

Please do not hestitate to reach out and contact us if you have any questions. Our intake team is ready to help.  We look forward to meeting you soon.  

All the Best, 

Jason & Jodie 

Our therapists share the same common vision: the primacy  of the Authentic Self

When you are rooted in your your deepest beliefs, values and truth and living a life that is a mirror of them, then you are living authentically yourself. We strive to support our clients to live this way. 

We believe in a collaborative approach to therapy where the therapist and client are authentic and transparent with one another. The most fundamental need of our being is to be seen, heard and accepted as we are.   It is no surprise that the strongest determining factor in successful therapy is  the therapeutic alliance.  Positive change happens when we become more like ourselves rather than trying to be something others want us to be.

We believe in an integrated approach to therapy where the mind, emotions,  and body are accounted for in the recovery and healing process.   When we are experiencing emotional distress our entire being experiences the pain.   Letting go of pain by changing our negative thought patterns,   learning new behaviours, resolving issues from the past, and  releasing tension from the muscles and nervous system all work together to create better mental and physical health.  

We believe  in supporting our clients to transform their  defenses  (the way we block ourselves from living our potential) into healthy ways of relating to self, others and the world.      Defenses  get created when our needs were not provided adequately, mostly in childhood.  The pain of not getting these needs met such as unconditional love and  validation,  had to be suppressed and the “false selves,”   worked to get these needs met inauthentically.  By respectfully and  gradually exposing the original pains,  the Real Self  can emerge and vitality of the personality restored.

We believe in empowerment through  personal responsibility.  Underlying much of emotional distress, anxiety and depression are suppressed emotions having to deal with our “unacceptability,” as persons.  We encourage our clients to embrace their authentic selves by courageously challenging the negative self-talk  of the “false selves,”,   to accept  negative emotions simply as  underlying needs to met,  and making a commitment to stop the cycles of shame, guilt and blame.



Parenting therapy helps you learn the tools to function optimally within your family unit. More specifically, you will be provided with the guidance and support you need to provide a stable and healthy experience for your child. Our therapists will also help you create a healthy attachment bond with your teen, adolescent or child.


Single session therapy uses the skills of the therapsit to to address clients' concerns within one session. There is the understanding that the session might be the only one. Single sessions can be contracted between two and four hours depending on the issue.


Bodywork addresses the fascial and nervous systems. These systems are integral in negotiating the body’s abilty to resolve trauma and stress. A light touch is necessary to release blocked trauma and restore the body’s natural energfetic flow.










ONE DAY WORKSHOP  SUNDAY, MAY 2nd, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Newmarket Therapy Centre, 436 Queen Street.  Newmarket, Ontario 

Do you require more confidence when interacting with your partner, family, friends or colleagues?
Do you want to become more effective at making requests of others?
Do you find it difficult to say 'no" to unreasonable demands?
Do you want to be able to influence others?
Do you get angry when others do not share your views?
Do you let your anger control you, or do you suppress your anger?

If you find yourself replying YES to each of these questions....then this workshop is for you!

The Newmarket Therapy Centre will be offering a one day workshop for men on Assertiveness Training. The purpose of the workshop is to give men the skills and tools to become effective communicators and how to cope better with strong emotions such as anger. Men who find themselves either shutting down or acting aggressively when communicating with others will find this workshop very beneficial. Studies have shown adopting an “assertive communication style,” which is based on expressing feelings confidently while respecting the feelings of others helps improve mood and increase self-esteem. Men who learn to be assertive feel better about themselves because their spouses, children, friends and colleagues respect and admire their confidence and can feel closer to them.

What you can expect to gain from this workshop: 

* Gain self-confidence and self-esteem.
* Understand and recognize your feelings.
* Earn respect from others.
* Improve communication.
* Create win-win situations.
* Improve your decision-making skills.
* Create honest relationships.
* Gain more job satisfaction.

What you will learn...

*The difference between assertive, aggressive, and passive behaviour
*Establishing boundaries
*Techniques to build self-esteem and confidence
*Giving and receiving feedback
*Direct and indirect methods of communication
*Making your messages clear
*Body language and non-verbal signals
*The art of saying "NO"
*Giving and receiving feedback
*Persuasion skills and coping with criticism
*Learning about yourself and connecting to inner resources
*Effective goal planning


An assertive man is a confident man. He knows how to speak up for himself, sets healthy boundaries, and remains calm in stressful situations. The training will give you all of the tools and strategies to become assertive so you can start transforming your life and relationships. The training is based on a Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) model of therapy where you will be able to practice your new learned skills within the group and get the support of like minded men.

The workshop will be facilitated by two Registered Psychotherapists, Jason Koenigbaur MTS, RP and Rob Sacco PhD, RP.

Shame Can You Keep You From Taking That Step

By Jason Koenigbaur MTS, C.Hyp, RP

If you are interested in starting therapy but feel somewhat anxious about making that step, then reading this may be helpful for you.  It is not easy to open up to someone for the first time, especially with very personal and intimate  issues.  Perhaps some of these issues have been pushed down for a long time and there is a discomfort about bringing them up. Or maybe there is a feeling of being judged about discussing them?  I think these apprehensions  are normal. My concern however is if you feel  shame about expressing your feelings.  

Shame is a normal emotion   which helps us to revaluate our actions and to take the steps towards reconciling with others.  Toxic shame however can get started in childhood. When a child experiences a rupture in a relationship with a parent and is made to feel that it is their fault, then this is what creates a shame bind.   The child learns that it is not good to share their feelings with others because they can be made to feel that there is something wrong with them.   Feelings gets bound to shame and the child learns  to shut down their voice in an attempt to avoid any further shaming and rejection.   As an adult you continue the "shame bind" with all of your relationships by denying your feelings, needs and wants.  It is easier to focus on others needs and disowning your own in an attempt to make sure that all of those others do not discover your defects.  The "inner child" part of you grieves and longs to be validated, loved and understood unconditionally. 

Sharing your story is a heroic step towards undoing the "shame bind."  It can be undone. A positive and validating therapeutic relationship  brings light into the dark recesses of shame.  When this happen transformation begins to happen.  You might start to realize that your "hurt inner child," is leaving those dark shadows and is in joyful anticipation of being in the "light" of your authenticity.
