/About

Jason Brain is a registered Clinical Psychologist. He is experienced in assisting clients to develop skills to better manage anxiety disorders, depression, grief and bereavement, post traumatic stress, alcohol & other drug use issues, adult ADHD, issues faced by older adults, issues specific to GLBTI clients, & long-term unhelpful life patterns (or ‘schemas’) which resist personal efforts to change them.

Jason has practiced in various settings, including hospitals, community health centres, and private practices. He utilizes cognitive-behavioural and schema-focused approaches to therapy, and has a particular interest in helping clients to develop mindfulness skills, which he also finds personally useful in his tai chi and archery practice.
