The Community Health Assessment and Therapy Team is a private counselling practice serving Ingersoll, Tillsonburg and surrounding communities. As we also offer telephone appointments, there is no limited catchment area and persons from anywhere in Canada are welcome to connect. Nadine Lulu, M.Ed., CCC began her private practice in Caledon, Ontario in 2007, and immediately recognized the need for a centralized private counselling service that could offer a wide range of therapy and assessment options to individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents which resulted in the founding of CHATT as an incorporated business in 2009. CHATT moved to Ingersoll, Ontario in 2010, and added a second location in Tillsonburg, Ontario in 2014.
At CHATT Inc., we believe that counselling is most effective when delivered with a “human touch”. The counsellors at CHATT Inc. are approachable, warm, experienced, knowledgeable, actively engaged, and sincere. Clinical studies have shown that the best predictor of success in counselling is the relationship between the counsellor and the client. For this reason, you will always be greeted with a smile, a genuine interest in your thoughts and opinions, mutual goal setting and a non-judgmental and helpful attitude throughout your counselling experience.
Our Therapeutic Approaches
The counsellors at CHATT Inc. offer several different therapeutic techniques depending on your needs: cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), motivational interviewing, brief solution-focused techniques, cooperative client-directed problem solving, mindfulness relaxation, acceptance training, and different child-directed therapies, such as Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA), play-directed, drama and visual arts to name a few. We offer these therapies within a holistic environment by considering the overall mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual needs of every person, family, or group. Once you decide to seek counselling with us you will be matched with the counsellor and the method which best suits your needs.
