Family and Child Counselling
Change can come in many forms.
Much like there are many routes to getting to a destination, our brains can use many paths to support our well-being. At Nōmina Integrated Health, we have many ways of which to support you with our evidence based therapies. We are the leader in the treatment of many mental health and sexual health disorders using advanced techniques like: Direct Neurofeedback, ISTDP, CBT/DBT and other evidence based modalities.
We also offer specialized addictions programming for individuals, families, couples and their supports. We have a wide array of options to support you through your journey.
Our diverse team of professionals brings a wide range of comprehensive and advanced skills to the table. We appreciate each situation is unique, and we strive to empower people in making choices that respect their journey and destination.
Direct Neurofeedback is a technique that directs extremely low-strength, unnoticeable electromagnetic currents into the brain. Often, habitual patterns keep the brain from growing past maladaptive pathways. The DNF currents help the brain create new neural pathways creating adaptation and new personal growth. Research has shown that DNF can help with many mental health disorders like: anxiety, depression, PTSD/OSI, addiction, ADD/ADHD, chronic stress, autism, concussions and other brain injuries.
On its own, it is used on adults of all ages, children, high performance sports athletes, and others to help improve brain functioning. As part of Nōmina Integrated Health, we combine DNF with advanced psychotherapy to create a multi-faceted treatment plan to help you achieve optimal mental health as quickly as possible.

Intensive Outpatient Program
Our Intensive Outpatient Program offers integrated, regular access to addictions support for those who do not need medical detoxification, while remaining in their supportive home environments in the Comox Valley. Our team-based approach is focused on helping individuals through the difficult first stages of recovery with a personalized support plan. Offering clients access to much-needed recovery support, while still being able to fulfill their daily work and family commitments, can be an effective alternative to residential treatment programs.
