Registered Marriage & Family


Anjali Joseph Psychotherapist

The quality of our relationships is pivotal to our health.  Systemic relational research  holds that people are inseparable from their web of relationships.  Interventions from a system perspective, focus on the relational patterns that develop  in  our relationships, It works to acknowledge, accept, or change them by deepening our emotional awareness, connecting them to our thoughts, feelings, senses, and behaviours to enrich our connection with others.  


I assist individuals and couples  with overwhelming feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, communication breakdowns, stresses  due to changing life circumstances, family disruption, childhood traumas, losses, relocation, and illness. 

Additionally, my experience extends  to supporting employees within organizations, and equips me with skills to assist leaders, managers and employees  through organizational change, managerial challenges, operational stressors, vicarious trauma due to the nature of their work, burnout, work/ life balance, demotivation at work, workplace conflict, debilitating illness (chronic pain), dealing with harassment/bullying in the workplace,  intersectionality and equity issues as it relates to employee health and leadership,  PTSD, .addictions,

I draw on  my practiced application of family /system, experiential  , and postmodern therapies to assist you.   I have been a therapist full-time for seventeen  years.  I nurture my skills in relational therapy both in and outside our sessions, by pursuing relevant continuing education opportunities and on-going education, and taking seriously my own personal development.  I maintain in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).

Restoring Health



  Live – The joys of a balanced and healthy life are the enjoyment of relationships, connection to ones purpose, an awareness of oneself, a concern for others in need, energy, focus, clarity and peace of mind. We all face challenges in life, however, that set us off balance, and compromise our health, mentality, physically and spiritually,   You may be aware that you are not coping with these stresses in a healthy way by using food or substances to feel better, avoid people, or experience bouts of despair and/or anxiety.  I strive to support you on your journey, help you restore strength and resilience in times of difficulty, and rediscover a path to health. 



Love - Are you in a  committed long-term relationship with someone?  In the best of times, relationships can be a source of strength, support, encouragement, intimacy and connection. But they can also be a source of doubt, discord, conflict, resentment that can sometimes heighten feelings of anger, hurt, insecurity, and vulnerability. Couples counselling aims to help couples find new ways of relating, understanding and reconnecting that are fulfilling and growth-oriented.  



Work –  Whether you are an executive, an entrepreneur, manager or employee, work can be a source of creativity, pleasure, fulfillment and meaning when things are going well, but it can also be a source of stress due to conflict, operational stress, burnout, competing demands, organizational changes and heavy workloads. These can in turn have a negative impact on performance, motivation, health, relationships, and personal career goals. Capital Counselling aims to provide a space to clarify sources of dis-ease in the workplace and help you find solutions to workplace concerns that preserve your ability to cope with the challenges of work.
