welcome to Michael White Psychology
During these challenging times as case numbers and stress related to COVID-19 continue to rise, I am pleased that I am able to continue offering in-person counselling and assessment services. Clients still have the option of counselling support via secure video conferencing or telephone (in special cases).
For in-person services I have instituted a number of safety protocols to help protect you and your family. All in-person clients will be sent a COVID-19 screener prior to their appointment. There will be no charge for rebooking appointments if you are not feeling well.
We are able to maintain physical distance in my new office and I have installed UVC air purifiers to help remove and destroy coronavirus particles in the air.
All clients will be asked to sanitize their hands prior to their appointment using the hands-free station outside the office. As well, clients will be expected to wear a mask. A mask will be provided if you do not have one with you. Contact surfaces will be sanitized between appointments.
All safety protocols are subject to change based on advice and orders issued by public health officials. If you have any concerns, please feel free to let me know.
Mike believes that psychology is a joint effort between a person and their therapist. Psychology is not about labelling; it is about helping people understand their own strengths and resilience. Respect for the client’s personal and cultural knowledge is at the centre of the caring relationship. From that respect change and improvement grows. Many mental health challenges have social and historical roots. With practice clients can learn to move beyond the past towards a healthier life.
Mike completed his Master of Education degree in Educational Psychology in 2007 and he has been a Registered Psychologist with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists (#751) since 2008. He holds an Authorized Practice Endorsement (APE), which allows Mike to make a diagnosis. He is an approved mental health service provider through Indigenous Services Canada. Mike has worked in public school settings and in private practice both in Northern Saskatchewan and in Regina. He has been in the education field for more than 20 years. Prior to working in education, Mike worked on policy and advocacy in federal and provincial government institutions.
