Our Approach to Treating OCD

Our Toronto OCD treatment centre uses an integrative model of care grounded in patient-centred practices that incorporates a number of therapeutic techniques, including:

  • Intensive exposure and response prevention (ERP) for reducing OCD symptoms.
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to assist in developing helpful thought patterns and healthy behaviours in recovery and beyond.
  • Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) for developing the skills needed to manage emotions and relationships, practice mindfulness, and survive crises.
  • Individual psychotherapy for an empathetic and safe space to discuss personal recovery concerns and develop treatment goals. 
  • Group therapy to provide opportunities for peer support and professionally guided emotional processing.
  • Psychoeducational sessions to help you understand yourself and the nature of OCD.
  • Mindfulness and physical exercise for creating healthy, lasting habits.
