Live Well, Feel Great
LICENSED PSYCHOLOGISTS AND PROFESSIONAL COACHES
Our story: "This practice was started back in 2003 to reflect the motto "Live well - Feel great!" The original intention remains today as it was back then: A practice that cultivates calm, nurturing, healing & recovery, personal and professional development. What we do is self evident. How we do it, depends upon you. You're an original. Counseling, therapy and coaching should therefore be customized to meet your individual needs." - Richard W. Anton
Studies have shown that clients feel most helped by treatment based upon who the therapist is, rather than his or her theoretical background, academic achievements and so on. Clients want a therapist that has achieved success and satisfaction in their own lives. They want a therapist that will speak to them simply and forthrightly, communicating from genuine wisdom and direct experience rather than mere "book learning."
Anton Counseling & Health Psychology therapists are hand-selected, first and foremost, for their personalities, their feel as real people, yet they are professional therapists, collectively motivated and brought together to provide the highest level of psychological care - providing a creative service that is research based as well as clinically informed and aimed at your growing edge.
WHAT IS A THERAPIST?
A therapist is fundamentally a caring and compassionate individual who studies how we think, feel and behave from both clinical and scientific viewpoints. Your therapist will blend this knowledge with her own personal and professional experience to support and encourage you to accept, understand and ultimately change certain thoughts, feelings & behaviors, achieving peace of mind & improving quality of life.
Therapists with Anton Counseling & Health Psychology are qualified, licensed psychologists & social workers, full members of their professional associations, adhering to a strict code of professional ethics and registered with and regulated by the College of Alberta Psychologists.
Coaching: our approach (psychological coaching) is dynamic and is an ongoing evolutionary process which can best be described as ACTION oriented, client-focused & eclectic: behavioural, cognitive, collaborative, creative, emotional, interpersonal, self relations, supportive, Humanistic, solution focused, existential, etc.
Health Psychology is an important aspect of our daily lives (chronic pain, weight loss, insomnia and other chronic medical conditions). Leadership and Corporate/Executive Coaching are strong focus points of our business. Our approach is tailored, wherever possible, in order to align ourselves with the individual character and unique needs and challenges of every individual or couple.
