Older Adult Psychotherapy (age 65+)


At Leon Psychology Clinic we offer psychotherapy that is understanding of the unique challenges related to ageing. Many older adults and seniors face a variety of new challenges such as different types of losses, transitions (e.g., retirement), coping with chronic health conditions, new family social roles, changes in residences, and loneliness. We also recognize that older adults can struggle with longstanding or new mental health difficulties. Psychotherapy can provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your unique life history in a judgement-free space and address any distress you might be feeling.

  • Fear, worry, anxiety, and stress
