ISTDP Therapy at Hann Psychological Services Halifax NS

Dr. Hann specializes in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). ISTDP is a unique form of psychodynamic treatment that brings about rapid reduction and elimination of a broad spectrum of emotional symptoms including anxiety, depression, somatization (physical symptoms from emotional distress) and personality disorders. ISTDP is a process of helping the client experience previously avoided feelings and by doing so, gain freedom from self-defeating relational patterns and distressing symptoms.

In addition to ISTDP, psychologists at our practice utilize cognitive behavioural therapy, emotion focused therapy, and solution-focused techniques with children, adolescents and adults.
