My name is Adam Ghemraoui, and I am a registered Psychologist in Ontario.
I have a Master degree in School Psychology from the University of British Columbia. I have worked with school boards across Canada by providing school-based assessment services, which includes psychoeducational assessments, behaviour-based consultations, and academic and behaviour interventions for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Aside from school-based services, I also provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults to address mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. I like to work collaboratively with my clients to address their issues by relying mostly on cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness. I work on trying to understand the problem that my clients are facing, and use a solution-focused approach to figure out how we can move forward.
If you think I can be of help, then let’s talk.

Frequently Asked Questions
A psychologist can help people understand the way they think, feel, and behave. Psychologists work with their client to set goals and use scientific ways to go about reaching those goals.
While there are many other individuals who may provide these services, psychologists are regulated professionals that must adhere to a strict ethical code of conduct and are accountable to a regulatory body.
Generally, the information that a client shares with their psychologist remains confidential. This means that a psychologist has a legal duty to ensure that the information is kept private. There are some limits to confidentiality which will be discussed during the informed consent process.
I am able to provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults. Some of the clients that I have helped include individuals with depression and anxiety. Some clients come in with unresolved emotional issues that they want help processing, while others can’t exactly pinpoint what they need help with but want help feeling better. If that is the case, I can conduct a structured interview to get a better understanding of a client’s functioning in different areas and collaborate with the client on a treatment plan.
Sometimes, an assessment is warranted to better understand why a student is struggling with their academic acheivment. A psychoeducational assessment is a comprehensive assessment that can provide information about a students’ intelligence, academic skills, and/or social, emotional, and behavioural functioning.
