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 Master’s level 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. 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.

Please explore the THERAPIST PROFILES on the website, or call our intake department to learn more about them. Alternatively, if you would like us to choose a therapist for you then that can be easily arranged. Our intake team will discuss your needs and match you with the “best fit.” Even if you do not feel that you connect with the therapist, please let us know. We will ensure that you will receive a therapist that can be the most helpful for you.

Please contact our intake co-ordinator Susan at (289) 500-8039 or CLICK HERE TO REQUEST A THERAPIST.

HOW PSYCHOTHERAPY CAN HELP YOU


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.

We specialize treating anxiety, depression, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, attachment deficits, and relationship problems. In our treatment process evidence based, and cutting edge methods are utilized by our therapist to ensure positiver therapeutic outcomes. Please explore our therapies and click on the links to learn more. Our  Intake Manager Susan Graham would be happy to explore these therapies with you and the therapists who specialize in them.

OUR STORY


OUR STORY OUR STORY
Jason Koenigbaur and Jodie Lindley  saw a vision for a “healing community,” in the hear of 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, and our team of like minded therapists, are a pioneering a movement towards the reconciliation of the mind and body. We want our clients to have the experience of feeling the  joy of being HUMAN and being ALIVE! We invite you to be part of the experience at our centre and our growing community. Please  explore our website to learn more about our therapists and services.

The symbol for the Newmarket Therapy Centre is the three leaf clover. One petal is the mind, the second the heart, and the third the body. Aligning the heart, mind and body is not always easy, especially when we hold onto pain, trauma and hurt in all of these systems. Therapy can be one way that we can learn to let go and wake up to our true potential which brings us back into alignment with ourselves and others.

Please do not hesitate 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 On Your Healing Journey.

Jason & Jodie

MISSION & VALUES


MISSION & VALUES
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.

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. - C.G. Jung
