Dr. Yaacov Lefcoe, C.Psych
Clinical and Counselling Psychologist
Welcome! I am a clinical and counselling psychologist in private practice in Toronto. My work is focused on longer-term, insight-oriented psychotherapy. I work with clients who are motivated for growth and change, curious about themselves; what makes them “tick.” I support my clients in their goals to restore wellbeing and inner peace where they are lacking; increase self-awareness; enhance effectiveness; strengthen personal sovereignty and openness to new experience.
The depth of my craft involves creating a holding therapeutic space, enabling my clients to turn inwards and discover what moves them unseen. Patterns in personality and emotion emerge into view; emotional processes become unstuck and able to flow through to completion. An inner space opens for something new.
It's a tremendous honour and privilege to accompany and serve people on this journey as a trusted ally, a witness, and expert midwife of psychological change.
My psychological work began in 1995, and has encompassed a wide range of professional experiences and approaches which I draw upon today. These include humanistic and experiential approaches; psychodynamic, and family systems therapies.
I also have a long-time interest in transpersonal psychology, the psychology of religion, altered states integration, and higher human development.
