Welcome to the Canadian Centre for Rational and Cognitive Therapies. The Centre opened in 2012 and is an affiliate
training centre to the Albert Ellis Institute, New York. The Albert Ellis Institute (AEI) is a world renowned
psychotherapy training institute founded by Dr. Albert Ellis in 1959. The Centre, like its parent Institute,
is an academic psychotherapy centre committed to the training of health professionals in the application of
effective, short-term therapy with long-term results.
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is considered the first form of cognitive therapy, developed by Dr. Ellis
in 1955. Evidence influenced cognitive behavioural based therapies have become widely accepted as effective in the
treatment of specific disorders.
In keeping with goals of AEI, the therapeutic approach is based on Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT).
REBT teaches individuals how to change self-defeating thoughts, behaviours and emotions into healthier life
In addition to professional training, the Centre offers clinical services and educational lectures and workshops
for the public.
