“Positive thoughts lead to positive outcomes”
- Jawad Bhatti
Sessions can take place in your home, online, and in-office including group therapy sessions.
Preference is given to in office sessions as the environment is calming, private, and free of distractions.
I have experience in providing psychoeducation and training either in office or offsite at your location. I have presented on numerous subjects for national conferences, school boards and educators, youth groups as well as for private organizations. A minimum number of participants are required for all seminars and workshops. Please contact Positive Outcome to request more detailed information.
Seminar topics include, but are not limited to: Anger Management, ADHD and Self-Care.
Currently virtual and in person appointments are available.
Individual counselling can help those struggling with work, relationships, health concerns, self esteem, and goals etc. Sessions allow for honest open conversations in a safe, non judgemental environment. Counselling can also help individuals better understand their challenges and consider more effective ways to manage their difficulties.
Couples counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about the direction of your relationship and how to rebuild and strengthen it.
Anger is a normal, healthy emotion when you know how to express it appropriately — anger management is about learning how to do this. Sessions are focused on developing a holistic understanding of recognition of signs that you're becoming angry, and taking action to c deal with the situation in a productive way.
ADHD Coaching is focused sessions on how to manage and achieve specific goals. Sessions are designed to identify needs and develop specific goals and strategies to manage them and attain goals. Coaching sessions can begin after several individual counselling sessions to provide thorough education on ADHD and assess needs.
Jawad Bhatti, the owner and chief therapist at Positive Outcome Counselling and Therapy,centres on providing psychoeducation and psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. As a registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and a member of the Canadian Association of Social Workers, he has been providing psychoeducation and psychotherapy to children and adolescents, adults, couples, and professionals for over a decade. Using his Bachelor’s and Master of Social Work from York University, a B.A. (Hons) from the University of Toronto and a certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution, Jawad has further chosen to be trained in several treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. This has accredited him the role of education coordinator for the mental health department at a major hospital in Toronto and is an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto to assist in properly serving his community and beyond to meet the needs of today's various crises. Jawad is also a faculty advisor in the department of Social Work at York University.
Jawad’s strength lies in the ability to connect with people and help them truly understand themselves and how they work. He states, “watching someone find their truth is one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences one can have”. In fact, Jawad believes that the key component of the therapeutic relationships is rapport and trust. He views skill, education and the clients commitment to therapy as secondary to the relationship that can be built with one another. “If there is trust and a strong rapport, therapy is more likely to be useful and successful to the client” he goes on to furthermore say. This technique resonates through the work he performs with clients from various backgrounds such as newcomers to Canada, youth, individuals and those involved in the criminal justice system. His calming personality and nonjudgmental process allows clients to feel comfortable while providing a space that is inclusive and conducive to honest and open discussions.
With an incessant desire to continually contribute his gifts, Jawad’s skills and experience has extended into the healthcare system facilitating for a Child and Adolescent ADHD clinic. Further to this, Jawad’s nurturing nature has bolstered his various roles at a community agency where he has administered psychotherapy to youth in a residential treatment setting, mental health programming in secondary schools in the surrounding region, and crisis skills as an on-call youth therapist for 310COPE. It is with this that Jawad has and continues to strive to bring an effective blend of experience, expertise, clarity, concern and action to the counseling process in order to maximize outcomes and provide genuine healing and wholeness to individuals.
