Why do you think people should choose Eckert Centre?
People should choose Eckert Centre because we offer specialized services that are tailored to the individual client’s needs. Moreover, the ability to have an assessment completed, as well as receive intervention support from the same clinic, is highly advantageous. Not only can the psychologist, counsellor, and/or Cognitive Coaching Specialist consult with one another, they can also support each other in achieving the highest quality of service for each and every client. This level of collaboration between mental health and intervention professionals ensures that our clients will continue to move forward towards positive change.
