Mental Health

The elbowroom Psychotherapeutic clinic provides affordable high-quality therapy services to families, couples, individuals, adolescents, and children. The elbowroom is dedicated to empowering families, couples, and individuals to strengthen their relationships, resolve troubling issues, and achieve personal well-being. Life often doesn’t present us with the luxury of choosing what we most need when we most need it.

Although many people feel like they can’t afford psychotherapy when they are at a low point in their life and have few financial resources, sometimes psychotherapy may be what’s most needed (see here for an overview of psychotherapy).

Psychotherapy is valuable at times of crisis, as an aid to personal growth, can help to develop assertiveness and self-confidence, and improve your sense of well being. We are committed to creating a safe environment that honours diverse backgrounds, family forms, and experiences. The elbowroom does not discriminate or refuse services to anyone on the basis of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, physical disability, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Affordable services

With the economic hardships that many of us are facing in the last few years, we want to do more to serve our clients during the times of hardship. If cost is an issue that makes it difficult for you to access counselling or psychotherapy, The elbowroom also offers Counselling and Psychotherapy Services at a reduced cost. Many families and individuals are low income, and we do our best to provide excellent service at the lowest possible rate. It can also sometimes be frustrating to call around from therapist to therapist, from group practice to community mental health centre, to find a professional therapist that can meet your price and is available for an appointment.

The fee varies depending on circumstances If you are interested in exploring the possibility of psychotherapy at a reduced cost, then please contact us at info@the-elbowroom.com and a senior member of staff will assist in finding the right support at a price that is affordable to you.

Alternative Mental Health Option

If you’re all “talked out”, then a combination of Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and Homeopathy may be the option for you. Our resident Craniosacral Therapist and Homeopath can aid in the treatment of Mental Health.

CST is a light touch therapy which allows emotions held in the tissues to release.  CST also calms the nervous system, lowering the adrenaline levels so that you no longer feel ‘wired’, your ability to breath deeply is enhanced and your mind is given a break from those repeating thoughts going around and around.  This then helps the client to come into a place of strength because they can sleep better and cope with day to day scenarios. CST can also check the bones and fascia within the cranium (head) and down the spine (Did you know that Idiopathic Endogenous Depression can often be the result of a compression of bones within the cranium or at the lower spine, for example, if you have never been well since a fall on your tail bone or since you received a blow to the head).

Adding Homeopathy to the equation is a potent mix.  The reason energetic medicine works so well with mental and emotional states is that these states are also energetic.

Have you ever tried to define what an emotion is?
The joy with working with homeopathy is that you can match the individual symptoms of the client to a remedy that contains those same symptoms.  Homeopathic remedies are rich with mental and emotional states, whether real or imaginary. Through the consultation, the aim of the homeopath is to match the specific symptoms of the client to a homeopathic remedy that includes those same symptoms.
Homeopathy can be administered without interfering with any medications the client is on. Conventional medicines tend to be chemically based, homeopathic medicines are energetic so they work at completely different levels.
