Welcoming New Registered Psychologist Nadia Pedjerkova

As a registered psychologist Nadia consults young and mature adults who struggle with various degrees of stress related issues and challenges, such as worklife balance, relating to others, adjusting to new environments or suffering loss. It is her dedication to empower clients to think creatively, develop new skills, and enhance their quality of life.

While working in private practice, occupational rehabilitation, EAP (employee assistance program) services, and medical clinic settings, Nadia developed expertise in multidisciplinary treatment methods, short-term and indepth therapy, including CBT, ACT, IPT, MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and psychodynamic approach.

Originally from Europe, with academic and work experience from Canada and Australia, Nadia has worked with clients from diverse cultural, economic and social backgrounds.  She is particularly attuned to how personal history influences established views and responses to current circumstances. The value of her experience intrinsically motivates her to support her clients in uncovering destructive patterns of thought and behaviour, as well as to encourage and inspire them in establishing new and more adaptive habits.
