ADULT INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
Transform your life from the inside out
Do you feel overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions?
Do you feel like you lack confidence or don't know how to assert yourself?
Do you find relationships with others rather (or much!) complicated?
Do you have difficulty coping with a significant change in your life?
Do you feel that your life is not aligned with your aspirations, but you don’t know how to change that... or where to start?
It would be a shame not to enjoy your life to the fullest!
We are here for you:

To help you find relief from stress and anxious feelings
To support you in difficult times such as the loss of a loved one, an illness, or a separation
To help you resolve conflicts and find solutions to problems
To help you improve your interpersonal relationships, including with your partner, family, friends, or colleagues
To help you discover and achieve your personal or professional goals
To help you strengthen your self-esteem and self-confidence
To guide you towards a more authentic, peaceful and free life
How the Individual Therapy Works:
You will speak with your therapist about the challenges you are facing as well the goals you want to achieve. The therapist will help you to express yourself. The couch is comfortable, the atmosphere is warm and you will not be judged.
Duration and Frequency:
You can see your therapist once a week or once every two weeks, particularly at first, when you are facing a difficult time, or when you need help in making a decision.
You will be able to rely on someone who knows you well, when needed. It’s like having an emotional safety net!
Our fees for individual sessions vary from 100$ CAN to 120$ CAN, depending on the professional. You can see the exact prices on each professional’s bio on “Our Team” page.
Our services are available in French, English, Spanish and Portuguese.
We have offices in Montréal, Laval, Charlevoix, St-Jêrome, Lanaudière, and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. We also offer therapy online.
We provide receipts in naturopathy for private insurances.
The counseling offered at Divan bleu differs from psychotherapy by focusing on the personal development of the client and their relational skills rather than on diagnosis, interpretation and treatment of a pathology. We do not offer psychotherapy.
We mainly work with the Non-Directive Creative Approach (ANDC).
This therapeutic approach is based on the belief that each person possesses inner resources that can be mobilized to overcome the difficulties they encounter.
In this approach, we consider that not having strong and gratifying connections with others, in the past or the present, are the greatest source of suffering in human beings. For us, these sufferings can be transformed into better well-being through prolonged experiences of healthy and authentic relationships. The therapeutic relationship using the ANDC is a concrete example of this type of healthy relationship. In this context, the therapist acts as a benevolent companion, promoting the growth and personal development of the client.
Our goal is to help our clients better understand themselves, free themselves from their blockages, and develop skills to cope with life’s difficulties. We work with them to identify their resources, strengths, and talents and to mobilize them so that they can achieve their goals.
Our approach aims to help people feel better in their own skin, develop their self-confidence, and live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
