Nick Diamond

Nick Diamand Registered Therapist in Toronto

Registered Psychotherapist • RP, CTP Dipl, BBA

We all too often find ourselves on a treadmill of stress, unprepared to make the changes which might enhance our lives. Seeking help in the form of professional treatment from a qualified Psychotherapist is a natural consequence of our desire to discover personal solutions to our perplexing issues … issues that can feel virtually insurmountable if they are not understood and dealt with … issues that can be worked through and become manageable with the support and encouragement of a professional. Reaching out to a psychotherapist is a normal and life affirming choice. It is a sign of health and an expression of our desire to lead a more fulfilling life.

About Nick Diamand

I bring a unique outlook to my clients. Having spent the first 25 years of my career as a Bay Street banker with Canada’s largest international bank, I have observed transformations of the human spirit while witnessing many changing dynamics… characteristics that can often result in creating exhausting challenges.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Reg. # 1034) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario(CRPO). I am a graduate of Toronto’s renowned Centre for Training in Psychotherapy (CTP), having successfully completed their 7 year academic and clinical requirements. I have been practicing now for the last 20 years. I have completed both the Externship & Core Skills Advanced Training Programs for Couples Therapy from the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy. I am a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT). I have also served on the Board of the Psychotherapy Referral Service (PRS) as its Secretary, Treasurer and President.

As a psychotherapist with a personal experience with prostate cancer, I have a unique perspective and hopefully a helpful one, on both the practical and emotional issues men must grapple with as they face this potentially life-changing diagnosis and treatment.

What happens in a therapy session

The seven-year Psychotherapy studies and 20 years clinical practice I have experienced to date, have equipped me with the understanding to offer you a dependable therapy practice. In fact, I have been fascinated for more than 40 years with the value of a therapeutic approach to life and have personally experienced the benefits of learning through many individual and group sessions. I look forward to working with you to help you discover your inner strengths as you learn to express more of who you are in the world.
I think of myself as a “soulsmith” … facilitating the awakening of your natural potential for unique personal and relational experiences … a true journey of change achieved through a relationship of trust.
