WELCOME TO NILMINI DE SILVA PSYCHOLOGY
As a licensed psychologist with a doctoral degree in Counselling Psychology, I have worked with hundreds of individuals and couples since 2003. I love working with my clients and helping them get from wherever they are to reaching their personal and professional goals. I work quite interactively in sessions, and am focused on keeping you moving towards your goals using a range of modalities such as CBT, solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing and relaxation training.
Je travaille en français aussi et je peux vous recevoir à mon cabinet à Longueuil ou en visioconférence, selon les besoins.

WHY SEEK HELP?
By seeking information about psychological services, you have taken the first step towards improving your mental health and well-being.
Psychotherapy is an important mental health tool that you can use to help you overcome your difficulties with the guidance of a trained mental health professional.
Dr. De Silva is a highly experienced psychologist who cares about your well-being and will provide you with high quality services in a timely manner.
WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Psychotherapy entails engaging in a therapeutic relationship that can last from a few sessions to several years, depending on your needs and pace.
The first 2 to 3 sessions are focused on assessment of the individual and identification of their difficulties and treatment planning. The following sessions focus on implementation of the treatment with ongoing assessment of progress.
If multiple issues need to be addressed, recommendations will be provided regarding the order of treatment foci. Once the issues are resolved, termination of therapy is done accordingly to set the stage for successful maintenance of results.
WHEN TO SEEK HELP?
Many people experience low self-esteem at certain periods in their life. This may be due to personal or external challenges they may undergo, or due to a sense of failure in certain areas of their lives.
Low self-esteem, anxiety, depressive moods, conflict and other issues are best treated early so as to limit their impact on your feelings, your performance and your self-image.
Many people attempt to cope on their own, resulting in problems that become more deeply rooted in their lives. Early detection and treatment is the best, and typically least costly, approach.
Dr. De Silva, licensed psychologist at Clinique Multidisciplinaire de Longueuil, and Dr. Sydney Miller, a licensed psychologist and professor of Clinical Health Psychology at Concordia University, discussed Panic Attacks and coping with it.

On CJAD 800 AM on November 16th on the show On Call with Dr. Miller, I discussed how to go about building good habits and eliminating bad ones. We touched on barriers to changing your habits and how I help clients get unstuck and move towards changing their behaviors permanently. Callers learned how they could address their own difficult habits.
