Who is Terry Mady?
My goal is to help people enhance their individual, family and community life in an integrative and holistic manner, taking into consideration the emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual, social and cultural aspects of peoples' lives. My services are available to everyone in the community regardless of religious affiliation, culture, or sexual orientation.
I have a Masters of Divinity Degree and 13 post masters courses in individual, couple and family therapy. I have been practicing since 2002 and have had an office in North Bay since 2008. Credentials are available on request.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and I am a Clinical Fellow with the Ontario Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (OAMFT). I work closely with this organization to promote and maintain a high degree of professionalism and ethics for marriage and family therapists throughout the province and am currently the Northern Ontario area representative for therapists in this field. This active participation in a professional body not only keeps me in touch with hundreds of skilled psychotherapists across Ontario, but also provides a mutual support and consultation network in which my skills are constantly being upgraded and improved. It is vitally important that whomever you choose as a therapist, that they have the appropriate credentials and professional associations.
People seek counselling because there is something in their lives or relationships which they would like to improve. I believe that counselling is a shared experience where I work with clients to help them develop solutions that respect the client's right to choose the course that they feel is best for their own situation. My expertise is in helping you develop your expertness. After all, no one knows your life situation more intimately than you. You are the expert, when it comes to your life situation. My job is to help you develop the ideas, thoughts and solutions that you will need to address the concerns in your life.
