TURNER CATHERINE ASSOCIATES is a partnership of therapists helping people change their lives through coaching, psychotherapy and education.

Nigel Turner

Nigel works with men who have addiction, anger, emotional and relationship issues.
His style is compassionate and direct.

With a background in addictions, he pursued an interest in men with addictions and relationship problems. He was trained in the Partner Abuse Response (PAR)  Program and works extensively with the courts with mandated clients. He is currently Program Director and lead facilitator of an Anger Management and Abuse program in Toronto.

Nigel understands the male psyche and what a man needs to hear to move forward with solutions to his own problems. He is conscious of the deep reluctance men have in dealing with these issues and the importance of a man discovering for himself what he needs to do. Nigel’s time limited work with the court mandated clients has given him clarity and efficiency in identifying clients’ issues, and in helping them not only find solutions to their problems but to begin to enact necessary changes. The focus is on brief rather than long term therapy. In his work with individual men, through his program WOUNDED WARRIORS, Nigel specializes in issues such as anger, domestic conflict, intimacy and addictions. Nigel gets the men to ask themselves the difficult questions such as: “If I choose to stay in this relationship, what do I have to do?”
He has published articles in Psychologica, a journal of the OACCPP and in the magazine VICES. B.S. (Econ)  H.S.C.  Member OACCPP
