About CFIR


Established in 2010 and with convenient downtown Ottawa, Toronto and St. Catharies locations, the Centre for Interpersonal Relationship brings together highly trained mental health clinicians who provide a wide-range of treatment and assessment services to clients of all ages and backgrounds. Accessibility of services is promoted by clinicians through their offering of variable fee options, secure video psychotherapy, and corporate/professional/executive coaching service. Clinicians at CFIR provide scientific, evidence-based treatment approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioural, Emotion-Focused, Psychodynamic, EMDR, Systemic and Narrative Therapy. 

For mental health professionals, CFIR provides a wide range of services to psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers and counsellors, including marketing, administrative, financial and workshop coordination services. Clinicians at CFIR organize in-house consultation groups to share knowledge, both theory, research and applied intervention strategies, and coordinate clinical skill-building workshops in the community at large.
