More About Chanelle Wilton
I have a special interest in working with anxiety related disorders, depression and borderline personality disorder. I believe strongly in a collaborative approach, in which our combined efforts will facilitate the growth and change you are seeking.
I have an innate curiosity for the all things pertaining to the field of psychology and am particularly interested in developments in treatment effectiveness. This assists me in staying current and informed with regard to best practices and recent research. I take seriously my responsibility as a practitioner and the trust that you impart on me as a client.
I have additional specialized training in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, which has helped me to refine my skills in these areas. Additionally, during my practicum with The Family Centre, I had the opportunity to work with individuals facing a wide range of trauma related issues and continue to develop my practice in this domain. In my work with Child and Family Services, I gained significant experience working with difficult custody and visitation matters, and assessments in this area are a particular interest of mine.
A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS
When did you know you wanted to become a psychologist?
While completing my undergraduate degree, I became especially interested in the psychology courses I was taking. I soon realized that this curiosity had progressed beyond that of a passing fascination, and I began the process of considering a change in my academic path. My second year of university I changed my major from biological sciences to psychology, and I never looked back!
What are you most passionate about?
I’m encouraged by the shift in perceptions around help seeking. Previously the predominant belief was that mental health intervention was reserved for acute conditions or crises. Now, there seems to be increased awareness that psychotherapy can be helpful for a range of issues, and we don’t need to wait until complete upheaval before seeking help.
