High Park Psychotherapy

Ted Leckie, Registered Psychotherapist

At any given moment, you have the power to say:

This is not how the story is going to end.


My name is Ted and my colleagues, clients and friends have at various times described me as empathetic, kind, gentle and insightful.

I see couples, families and individuals. In addition I run an ongoing relational psychotherapy group which meets weekly. If you would like to see me individually, with your partner, with your family or if you would like to join one of my psychotherapy groups, feel free to contact me at ted.leckie@gmail.com

My psychotherapy training is from the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy (TIRP), a three year intensive theoretical and clinical training program in relational, intersubjective and psychodynamic therapy.

The psychotherapy process involves developing an interpersonal relationship which strengthens and transforms your sense of self, and enhances your confidence and well-being in the world. Empowerment and growth through interpersonal connection are both the process and the goal of relational therapy.

I have also studied mindfulness, psychology and mental health at the University of Toronto - looking at the mind, consciousness, cognitive science, and health psychology, to understand the contributions of mindfulness to the modern understanding of consciousness, and mental and physical health and illness.

My particular interest lies with couples, families and relationships. I see clients as couples, as part of a family and/or individually. I have done couples training with John Gottman (Level One and Level Two training) as well as couples training with Gail Palmer and Sue Johnson (Emotionally Focused Therapy -EFT- Externship). I have done family training with Gail Palmer (Emotionally Focused Family Therapy).
