Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Family therapy provides a space for family members to better understand each other's unmet needs and work through difficult emotions, beliefs or conflicts that are interfering with family members' relationships. Family Therapy focuses on enhancing communication, increasing awareness of family members needs, facilitating attachment focused interactions, and enhancing attuned caregiver responses. We are here to support all members of the family to be heard, supported and to move toward a better relationship for all.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a structured, evidence based therapy that has been researched extensively and has been proven to be effective in the treatment of trauma. EMDR involves asking clients to focus briefly on the traumatic memory while being exposed to bilateral stimulation. As the client holds the trauma in mind and follows the bilateral stimulation, the distress, negative beliefs, emotional and somatic experiences associated with the traumatic memory all decrease in intensity. The processing of the trauma allows the person to access more adaptive belief about themself and their world.

Fertility & Loss

Fertility Challenges and Loss

Chances are you or someone that you know is struggling with infertility and/or loss. 1 in 6 Canadian couples struggle to conceive, and 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Unfortunately, to receive In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatments, folks in Newfoundland and Labrador are forced to travel outside of the province. Cycle tracking and preparation, funding, traveling, and being away from home and your support system during an already incredibly stressful time can take a great toll on your mental health and wellbeing. Counselling can provide an opportunity for couples and individuals to discuss emotional difficulties, stress, anxiety, grief, trauma, and loss that they may experience during their fertility journey. Therapy is covered by most insurance companies under clinical counselling or naturopathy.


Postpartum and Perinatal Mental Health

Having a baby can feel wonderful and it can also feel overwhelming and hard. 1 in 7 moms and 1 in 10 dads experience postpartum depression. Symptoms can appear any time during pregnancy and 12 months after childbirth (PSI, 2023). If your mental health is interferring with your ability to care for yourself, your baby, or function in your job, you may benefit from a higher level of clinical treatment for a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder (PMAD). A Certified Perinatal Mental Health (PMH-C) clinician can help expecting and new moms/birthing people who are currently suffering from postpartum depression PPD, postpartum anxiety PPA, postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder PPTSD, postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder PPOCD, bipolar disorder, and/or postpartum psychosis PPP. If perinatal mental health counselling is what you need to feel better, we will work with you to determine whether virtual or in-person is the best option.

Grief & Loss

Grief & Loss

Everyone will experience grief and loss throughout their lives. Many people think of grief as death, but grief encompasses many significant life events. Grief can include: the death of a loved one, unexpected, violent, or traumatic deaths, or the death of a pet. It includes the loss of an intimate relationship due to separation, divorce, or breakup and the loss of relationships with family members or close friends. There is grief in an injury or a decline in health or losses related to the diagnosis of a disability or living with a disability

While everyone will experience grief and loss, the experience will be different for everyone. Common feelings include: anger, sadness, shock, denial, fear, insecurity, anxiety, hopelessness, loneliness, guilt, shame, disgust, or despair. Many people often have physical symptoms as well such as: sleeplessness, nausea, weight loss or gain, fatigue, and aches and pains. No matter what your grief experience looks or feels like, we can help support you through this extremely difficult time.

Speech-Language Pathology Services

Here at Repose, we have registered Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) working to build relationships and improve communication through assessment and treatment of clients with a variety of speech and language concerns. From tiny tots to teens to adults, we aim to offer diverse services to the members of our community who need support the most. We take great pride in offering fun and interactive sessions that focus on client goals in a strengths-based approach to assessment and therapy. Our SLPs are trauma-informed and use neurodivergent-affirming practices. We strive to provide family- centered, relationship-first practices where everyone’s voice is important and heard.

SLP Assessments – What to Expect

You’ve booked an appointment on our website and now you’re wondering what to expect on the day of assessment. 

● Case History – We complete an interview to discuss with the caregiver/adult any concerns, goals, strengths, and difficulties. This interview will help create a client profile for our clinicians to  expectations and create mutual trust and understanding. Questionnaires may be emailed to clients prior to the first meeting to begin collection of information. 

● Oral Mechanism Exam — The SLP may need to observe the condition of the individual’s tongue, teeth, tonsils, palate, jaw, and throat to assess how they relate to or affect sound production.

● Testing — Formal (standardized protocols) and informal assessments may be conducted to collect information on the client’s current abilities and identify a treatment plan. For children, assessments are play-based and a video recording may be required for further analysis (with written consent).

● Discussion of Treatment Options —  The SLP may need to review and score testing results before a diagnosis can be made, but will provide preliminary feedback on the session and discuss treatment options and potential goals. A summary will be provided and a comprehensive written report can be available for an additional fee.

What to expect?


Complimentary Consultation: Have questions? Not sure where to get started or feeling overwhelmed? We encourage you to reach out for a complimentary assessment consultation if you have questions or are unsure if an assessment is needed for yourself or a loved one.


While their is often variability in the assessment process, depending on the presenting concern, assessments typically involve three main parts: 



All assessments begin with an intake session with your psychologist. During this initial session, you will meet with the psychologist to discuss your concerns, reasons for seeking testing, and relevant background information. This is a crucial step as it helps the psychologist understand you or your loved one’s unique situation, history, and goals for the assessment. Additionally, the psychologist may ask questions about your medical history, family background, and any previous assessments or treatments you have undergone.This combined with other measures will help formulate an individualized 

assessment plan. 


Consent for assessment will additionally be explained and obtained during the intake session. Some assessment intakes       can be completed virtually, depending on the need and age of the individual. This can be determined at time of booking the intake. The intake session is a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss your goals and expectations. 



After the intake, your psychologist will advise you of what is required moving forward. Depending on the type of assessment this could constitute online assessments and questionnaires, in person standardized assessment testing sessions or further interviews. 


This phase involves the administration of various standardized psychological 

tests tailored to your specific needs and concerns. These tests can cover a wide range of areas such as intelligence, personality, emotional functioning, attention, memory, and academic abilities. The tests used are carefully selected based on your individual circumstances, and they are designed to provide valuable insights into strengths, challenges, and overall functioning. Oftentimes, document collection and file reviews are necessary for assessment completion. This means providing any previously completed assessments and school records/report cards. 


If the assessment requires in person testing, this testing process takes place in a comfortable and private setting. It may span over one or more sessions, depending on the complexity and scope of the assessment. Your clinician will explain all of these steps in detail and what is expected to complete the assessment.



When “testing” is complete your psychologist will connect with you to schedule a time to meet with you again to discuss your assessment results. During this session, you will receive a detailed explanation of the assessment results. The psychologist will interpret the test scores, provide insights into your unique profile, and address any questions or concerns you may have. 


The feedback session will review any potential diagnoses and provide you with personalized recommendations. This will help identify areas of future support including referrals and other resources to identify treatment options. The feedback session is an excellent opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of yourself or loved one and to explore potential treatment options or recommendations based on the assessment outcomes.


You will receive: In addition to the feedback session to explain the results you will receive the following:

  • A hard copy and digital copy of the confidential report 

  • A summary letter for your medical professional, if required

  • Detailed receipts for insurance reimbursement purposes

  • Connecting to resources or other treatment options

  • Signing of any forms or papers (Post Secondary Institutions, Canada Student Aid, Workplace Accommodations, Disability Tax Credit Form, or similar can also be discussed during the feedback session)


Summary of the process: While their is often variability in the assessment process, depending on the presenting concern, typically the core elements will include the following:

  • Clinical interview: 1 hour to 1.5 hours  

  • Testing: Varies depending on the type of assessment (can be between 3-5 hours of testing that examines: learning style, executive functions, memory, cognitive processing, IQ)

  • Online assessments: questionnaires and/or behavioral checklists and screeners

  • File review: Review of school report cards and comments/ previously completed assessments 

  • Observations (if applicable)

  • Feedback session (1-2 hours)


If you suspect yourself or a loved one may require an assessment please get in touch to see if psychological testing could be helpful.
