A proven approach to helping you feel better.
BEACON provides Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a psychotherapy approach that helps you develop skills to change negative and anxious thinking, so you can feel and function better.
Numerous clinical studies over many years prove the effectiveness of CBT in helping people overcome a range of concerns related to mental well-being.
You'll get your own personal BEACON therapist.
A BEACON therapist will be dedicated to you, and will tailor your care from start to finish. BEACON therapists are experienced, registered mental health professionals.
You can message your therapist at any time you want, and within 1-2 business days (usually less), your therapist will respond via messaging with answers to your questions.
Your therapy is tailored to you.
At the start of your BEACON journey, you will complete a personal assessment online, which typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. Your responses will help the BEACON therapist tailor your care.
As you progress through therapy, your BEACON therapist will prompt you through your learning. The therapist will unlock readings and exercises that will get you thinking about aspects of your mental wellness that you haven’t considered before.
BEACON allows you to get effective treatment when your schedule, or life, makes it hard to meet with a Mohawk counsellor.
