Tom Peric


As an addiction counsellor, psychotherapist and college professor, I have been working in the addiction treatment, mental health, and post-secondary education fields for almost two decades now.

I provide mindfulness-based addiction counselling and psychotherapy in my own private practice. I am also a professor (part-time) in the School of English and Liberal Studies at Seneca College, Toronto, teaching courses in social sciences (psychology, communications, addictions, social and political theories).

My counselling approach springs from my experience as a therapist in community-service agencies and hospitals, including the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, where I worked in a variety of roles and services. Providing therapeutic services in both individual and group formats, I have assisted many individuals struggling with addiction, mental health and related issues to live healthier and happier lives.

I am an International Certified Alcohol and Drug Counsellor, Canadian Certified Addiction Counsellor, and also certified as a tobacco cessation specialist by the UofT and the CAMH. I am registered as a psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I have been recently certified as a Master Specialist in Integrative Health & Addiction (MSIHA) by The Center for Integrative Health & Addiction (The CIHA).

In addition to my addiction specific counselling education, I am trained in transpersonal and experiential psychotherapy and mindfulness-based approaches to dealing with life challenges, stress, depression and addictive behaviours. I strive to bring the attitude of mindfulness and compassion to all aspects of my personal and professional life.
