Listening & helping you understand

Dr. Matthew Mossop

My name is Matthew Mossop, I’m a 39 year old Naturopathic Doctor in Ottawa, ON, Canada. I completed a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University in 2006, and a 4 year degree in Naturopathic Medicine at CCNM in 2018. Instead of boring you any more with stories about my schooling, I’ll get right to the good stuff.

A major reason why I decided to focus my practice on mental health is because anxiety and depression were part of my story for some time. I’d say around 13 or 14 is when it really started to hit me (not an uncommon age for this to happen).

Anxiety was always my “main“ issue, with a sprinkle of depression here and there (and at times a little more severe than that). I often felt disconnected from myself, wondering why this was happening to me and what was “wrong“ with me.

A Doctor of Naturopathy requires the completion of a 4 year program in one of six accredited schools in North America. I completed mine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto in 2018. The main naturopathic disciplines include Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Physical Medicine, and Homeopathy.

My main modality of treatment, and a powerful tool to help patients understand themselves better. I have been mentored and counseled by Moshe Daniel Block, the creator of Holistic Counseling. HC has helped me understand myself on a fundamental level that no other therapy ever came close to. I am currently completing my certification in HC with Moshe Daniel Block.

Guided Imagery is a way to help patients connect with themselves on a deep level through images conjured within their minds. Guided Imagery can be a fascinating, and unique way to discover ourselves. Although I am certified in Level 2 Guided Imagery, I rely mainly on HC as my main modality. If a patient and I get “stuck” somewhere, GI can be a great tool to explore the issue from a different angle.

Completed in 2006. I worked for a brief while for the Government of Canada in the Department of National Defence as an Engineer in Training. However I ultimately decided it wasn’t for me and quit to pursue other things. Although engineering wasn’t my true passion, I still enjoy researching and reading about the hard sciences in my free time.
