Offering the Highest Standard of Psychological Care

Established in 1983, FVB Psychologists is committed to offering the highest standard of psychological care to our clients. As one of the most established and comprehensive psychology practices in Ontario, we are able to offer professional, innovative, and timely intervention to individuals and families in the following languages: English, French, Italian, Greek, Hindi, Vietnamese, and Afrikaans. We now offer clients convenient online video appointments. You can access our services from the comfort of your own home or office, or even on the go, via most computer or mobile devices with a stable internet connection. The video consultations are powered by OnCall Health, a Canadian company that is committed to complete privacy between healthcare providers and their clients. Through the provision of services using technological modalities in lieu of, or in addition to, traditional face-to-face methods, FVB provides increased access to therapy for those with psychological, medical, and/or mobility disabilities, and for those living in remote geographical areas or in locations with few mental health resources.

An Experienced Team of Clinicians

Our assessment and therapy services are conducted by an experienced team of clinicians who joined FVB Psychologists after gaining many years of valuable experience in the public sector; for example, working in hospitals, universities, rehabilitation centres, social service agencies, and community-based clinics. As a team, we are able to offer a rich, experience-based range of clinical services. Our clinicians are psychologists or psychological associates registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. This means we are independent practitioners licenced to assess, diagnose, and treat the full range of psychological disorders ranging from problems in living to serious mental health issues. In addition, our practice also employs psychotherapists who are under the  supervision of registered psychologists.

Regulated Profession in the Province of Ontario

As members of regulated professions, all FVB therapists are held to the highest standards of clinical practice. We must complete a series of rigorous written and oral examinations after our post-graduate degree, we must comply with specific standards, guidelines and ethical principles, and we are required to participate in quality assurance activities as we continually update and improve our knowledge and skills.

Aging

Aging is inevitable, but there is something you can do about it.

Canadians are aging; the number of Canadians aged 65 or older will number 9.5 million or 23 percent of our population by 2030 when all baby boomers will have reached the age of 65 (Statistics Canada). There is considerable diversity in this cohort, e.g., the “junior senior”, in the 65 to 74-year-old category, will most likely have different activity levels and face different challenges than those in the 75 to 84-year category, and different again from those older than 85 years.

Intimate Partner Violence (2)

As we continue discussion of the myriad issues related to intimate partner violence (IPV), in this blog we will explore various interventions aimed at reducing the incidence of IPV. IPV is typically associated with physical abuse, but power and control in the form of financial abuse, withholding access to monetary assets, and manipulation such as imposing detailed rules or expectations on behaviour, restricting access to food, clothing, or basic needs can also act as precursors to physical violence.

COVID-19 and Intimate-Partner Violence (IPV): The Shadow Pandemic

During a pandemic, lockdown, social isolation, and quarantine are all positive measures for the health of our communities, unfortunately, these measures also mean that abusers and those they harm are confined together in spaces around the clock.
