Therapy For Depression & Anxiety

Society used to look at mental health issues as something to be ashamed of, but not any more. Mental health, like physical health, is something that absolutely everyone must work at to feel good. It’s rewarding work, but it isn’t always easy.

Heart-breaking events or even just daily struggles can sometimes lead to depression, anxiety, or a sense that we do not belong. The resources we need to stay balanced, to grow, and to feel whole are within each of us, but sometimes we have trouble finding them on our own. That’s why help is available.

At Welling Centre, our goal is to build a trusting, safe, relationship with you, where our therapists can understand your situation from your perspective, and help you to discover the hidden resources that would allow you to find your source of wellness once again.

Meet our therapists currently specializing in depression and anxiety therapy.
