Clara Beissel,Ph.D., C.Psych.
I am a clinical psychologist in private practice registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Western Ontario in 2007. As a graduate student, I began working with established psychologists in private practice in London, where I gained experience in providing individual psychotherapy and psychoeducational assessments. Upon completion of my registration in 2008, I began my own private practice.
My approach to clinical work is collaborative and client-centered, as I tailor my treatment to the needs and goals of each individual. It is my privilege to work with individuals to explore their feelings and thoughts, as well as their past and present relationships and experiences, in order to gain awareness and understanding which facilitates self-compassion, change, growth, improved relationships, and more fulfillment in life. I have received training in various therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I provide a confidential and safe space for self-exploration through either short-term, solution-focused therapy or long-term, insight-oriented therapy.
