Dr. Richard Majors - Registered Counselling Psychologist
My primary mission is to provide services that address the psychological and mental health needs of young people, adults and families from mainstream groups, multicultural communities and people of colour, who have been historically under-represented in gaining access to mental health or excluded altogether to services because of their race, gender, class, sexual orientation or disability. Therefore, my goal is to optimise and improve the emotional health and overall emotional well-being of these groups and provide an evidence-based and culturally competent clinical service that address the psychological and mental health needs of, young people, adults families, parents and carers.
I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the following areas: depression, anxiety disorders, gender dysphoria related issues, anger management, relationships difficulties, couples counselling, traumatic, stress management, addictions, attachment-related issues, domestic abuse, behavioural difficulties and teens in schools, bereavement/loss and separation, cultural heritage and mixed parentage issues, workplace-related problems, executive wellness coaching and life skills, personal development/self-esteem, adolescence group work, life transition and geriatric issues, hoarding and aftercare counselling among other areas.
I have an interest in young people who have been excluded from school. As well, I have an interest in working with people with high functioning autism.
During these uncertain times I would like anyone viewing my profile to know that I am still very much available to support you. I am able to offer online and telephone counselling sessions if required. Please feel free to either email or call me to arrange an appointment.
