Midnapore Office

Paige Abbott, Founder & Registered Psychologist

Specialization: Addiction    Direct billing: Most providers

Paige has been a Registered Psychologist since 2009 and during that time has worked in college, business, and private clinic counselling environments. She works from an eclectic model of therapy while appreciating all aspects of the person.

Paige specializes in working with Addiction & problem behaviours of all kinds (alcohol, drugs, gambling, relationships/codependency, sex, food/body, and more) alone or in conjunction with mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and anger. She is able to work with individuals located in Alberta or New Brunswick at the time of appointment.

Paige values the importance of self-growth and development and uses physical activity, journaling, meditation, laughter, design, and her support network for her own self-care. She is a wife and mother and values these roles in her life. She is friendly, inviting, warm, and uses humour (and the occasional swear word) to keep connected with her humanity.

Accepting New Clients In Person and Virtual

“I am an experienced death doula and play therapist. I am trained in a number of modalities, but focus my work in Somatic Therapy and EMDR. I use my expertise to provide support to individuals who have experienced trauma or stress, grief or loss, and those undergoing life transitions or dealing with self-identity and esteem issues. I also provide guidance to other professionals in the helping field. I provide assessment and counselling services for a wide range of issues.

I believe that you are ultimately responsible for change in your life but often the best outcomes occur when you have the support of different people, including a therapist.

I have a passion for supporting couples, families, and children. I believe relationships are foundational to mental wellbeing. Building a strong support system and overcoming relationship difficulties can be so transformative to our mental health. I specialize in helping couples and families with improving intimacy, connection, trust, communication, and more. I can support you and your loved ones through various stressful or traumatic experiences that may be impacting your relationships.

I can also work with individuals one on one to process past experiences of divorce, breakups, betrayal trauma, infidelity, domestic violence, addiction, and more. I have additional trainings for modalities to incorporate into my therapy toolbox and over 30+ years of experience in mental health.

I have had my own experience with relationship difficulties, and I believe you are never too old to prioritize yourself or to pursue your own happiness. I strive to build authentic connections with my clients and to offer a safe environment to do the challenging work of therapy. I am a true believer in self-efficacy, and I am passionate about building on people’s strengths when supporting them through change. I individualize therapy in response to the needs of my clients as the therapeutic process evolves. I am always flexible because I know that as therapy progresses, clients’ needs will vary as they encounter new challenges. I work very collaboratively with my clients and strive to be transparent about my approach to therapy.”
