OHIP-Funded Headache Behavioural Therapy Group Counselling

“I’m very brave generally,” he went on in a low voice: “only today I happen to have a headache.”

-Lewis Carrol

These sessions focus on helping patients identify feedback loops that reinforce headache and methods to reprogram them in a way to result in better outcomes. 

Focus will be on: trigger management, leveraging reinforcement principles & social resources, developing contingency management plans and skilled application exposure therapy for habituation. 

Participants are not required to have done the functional model of headache management group sessions although the framework presented there will help patients more expertly apply the principles taught.

Duration: 8 weeks. 45-minute sessions/per week online over OTN

Counseling facilitator:  Dr. Taher Chugh

Please note:
While we endeavor to limit the session to the allotted time, at times, the sessions go overtime because of discussion and questions. Please keep this in mind when scheduling group counseling appointments. We recommend that you do not book anything else for 30 minutes after each group session.
