History/ Mission

The Adult Treatment Service offers individual psychotherapy (1-2 times weekly), or intensive psychoanalytic treatment (3-5 times weekly); and referral for supportive psychiatric medication treatment when needed as an adjunct to psychotherapy. Therapy may help with a range of problems-in-living that affect the way we think and feel. These include symptoms of anxiety, indecisiveness, guilt and shame; depression and low self-esteem; effects of abuse; flashback memories; and distress in work and relationships. Our therapists appreciate the uniqueness of each person’s life experience and cultural background. Our patients come from a range of ethnic, economic and work backgrounds.

The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, a comprehensive training and treatment institute, was established in 1971.  The Adult Treatment Service began as the psychotherapy clinic of ICP, and has helped people from different parts of the City to deal with life’s problems and to work toward achieving their personal aspirations.
