Dr. Delaine Shackleton primarily works with adults and adolescents. Her theoretical approach to assessment and intervention is evidence-based and an integrative approach that heavily draws upon cognitive-behavioural theory and the biopsychosocial model of mental health.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Sleep disorders
