History

The Brief Psychotherapy Centre for Women was established at Women's College Hospital in 1988.

The Brief Psychotherapy Centre for Women is a program that provides individual and group psychotherapy to women. The program uses a model of psychotherapy that is focused and time-limited, designed to meet the unique needs and goals that each woman identifies for herself. The goal is to support women in understanding and resolving their own problems.

The Brief Psychotherapy Centre for Women works with women experiencing difficulty with issues such as depression, anxiety, body image, loneliness, loss and bereavement, and abuse. The program's approach is woman-centred, non-medical, and community-based, with an emphasis on empowering women.

The Brief Psychotherapy Centre for Women is the only program of its kind in Canada.
