Stress & Anxiety
The Crystal Path’s Stress & Anxiety Program is an individually tailored program uniquely programmed for each client. Based on the concepts and principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the Stress & Anxiety Program’s accredited Psychotherapist utilizes therapy techniques such as PRT, Floor-Time, Hypnotherapy, and Talk Therapy to assist children ages 4 and up. A minimum four session commitment provides each client with a detailed assessment and treatment plan, along with daily session reports.
ABA Equipped Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
The Crystal Path’s ABA Equipped Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) incorporates Applied Behavioural Analysis methodology into the delivery of manualized practical and goal-based CBT. The ABA Equipped CBT program is supervised and monitored by our Clinical Psychologist and follows research-proven CBT curriculums which are structured to teach new practical skills and coping tools. Following an initial intake and planning session, weekly one-on-one sessions will vary in length depending on programs chosen, identified goals, and the pace in which material is worked through.
The Crystal Path’s Neurofeedback program is an (EEG) biofeedback brain training exercise that strengthens neural pathways in the brain. Our Certified Neurofeedback Technicians conduct advanced brain mapping and assessment by attaching non-invasive sensors to target specific areas of the brain. The client’s brainwave activity is received and displayed in real-time, where neurofeedback activated patterns are reinforced until optimal brainwave levels are reached. This painless yet effective form of self-regulated brain training addresses many issues including mood and emotions, sleep disorders and ADHD.
The Crystal Path’s NeuroNet program aims to teach children to become independent learners through a fun sequence of developmental exercises. This innovative program was designed to integrate temporal processing with perceptual-motor organizations and has been adopted by numerous treatment professions such as Audiology, Speech Pathology, Developmental Optometry, as well as Occupational and Physical Therapy. Adjunct to other CLLC therapies, NeuroNet is a beneficial supplementary treatment for ASD, ADHD, Speech and Language Delays, and Fine and Gross Motor Delays.
