Pain Management

Psychological factors play a very important role in a person’s adjustment to pain. These factors include mood, coping style, and beliefs about the experience of pain. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been found to be highly effective in helping people manage their pain. The treatment is tailored to the individual needs of the person, and it generally aims to modify negative thoughts related to pain and increase a person’s level of activity and functioning. Our team of therapists has extensive experience in helping people with pain management.

We have extensive experience in conducting Toronto's best psychological assessments for motor-vehicle accident claims, WISB, personal injury and disability claims (including LTD, ODSP, CPP), and medical malpractice claims. Our distinguished roster of Registered Psychologists also handle psychovocational options, psycho-legal reports and immigration cases for refugees.
