Note to all clients:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello! I’m Demian Brown.

I’ve devoted my life’s work for over twenty years to my lifelong passion for understanding and helping people by publishing personal/professional research, participating in a very broad range of clinical and supervisory experiences, developing and implementing hospital based policies to meet patient needs, running agency programs while participating in hospital multi-disciplinary health teams and assisting Toronto college and university Psychology Professors delivering course material.

What Clients Are Saying


My husband and I were very anxious before our first visit to see Demian. We had no idea what to expect. What we both found was an extremely astute and engaging therapist who is obviously in the role he was meant to be in. I cannot thank him enough for all his insight and hard work... Continued...

A friend recommended Demian Brown to me and I am so glad she did! Demian is a wonderful psychotherapist and has helped me and my family through a very difficult period. I found him to be naturally very warm and supportive but also firm when I needed him to be. I cannot recommend him and his practice enough. Thank you so much!!

I was extremely anxious before I made the call to his office but I was made to feel at ease from that moment onwards. My visits are now only once a month and I truly look forward to them and not always for a specific reason but its just a really safe place to vent and seek advise about everything life throws your way. Continued...

I have been seeing Demian for a few years now. Now I go when I feel my anxiety becomes an issue again or my partner and I feel we need some insight and advice from a very trusted third party. Demian has given me the tools to manage my condition and also has consistently helped with me and my partners relationship issues. Continued...

Thank you Demian Brown! My partner and I had tried three other therapists in Toronto in the past that did little to improve our situation. Demian, although very empathetic, brought us through quite a hard process while making us feel comfortable, safe and confident in what he was doing. Continued...

Demian is very professional, great to talk to. I strongly recommend him to anybody needing a Toronto psychotherapist.
