Richard W. Anton MA, BA, Dip Ed
Calgary’s Performance Coach
Anton Counseling & Health Psychology has been established since 2003 as a part of Calgary Psychologists International. Coaching Leaders since 2011. Think of me as your Performance Coach. You want to reduce your stress, have better relationships, & more explicit, persuasive communication. Feel accepted, appreciated, and respected. Feel happier & more confident. Richard Anton is a senior counseling psychologist, an executive coach, & a public speaker.
Trained Executive Coach with a particular interest in leadership & a licensed Calgary Psychologist. Proficient with cognitive therapies & behavioral therapy. Recover or enhance your mental health, with a focus on cognitive processing & cognitive restructuring.
For Calgary Psychologists, the therapeutic process begins before you even arrive at the office for your first visit. Once you’re here, you’ll be exposed to a professional approach to providing therapy that is steeped in positive psychology. You’ll be able to raise your coping strategy. My style involves assisting you in the development of new skills. Their implementation will elevate your performance and help you to bring your goals to life. You will feel better, more confident.
This is a strength-based coaching approach. It includes the use of strength-based assessments (where applicable). These assessments will provide you with objective and practical feedback. As such, I’ll work with you to uncover your strengths. You’ll be set up to utilize those strengths to face personal or professional challenges.
For those times when you want to feel more focused and be less distractable: Calgary Psychologists may also recommend hypnotherapy or suggest imagery & visualization. As in sports psychology, I urge you to use your imagination. “See yourself” experiencing your best in a range of situations or environments. Maintain high performance while in stressful or challenging situations, and perform at a very high level of confidence.
Richard’s experience with individuals and couples led him to develop his leadership performance approach. Self-care and personal responsibility are the foundation on which personal/professional success and happiness is built. I will accept, encourage, challenge, and inspire you. Working together will improve your ability to create the emotional and interpersonal experiences you desire.
Create a version of yourself that inspires you
First, continuous improvement is one of my core values and goals. I will bring optimism and have a positive influence on you. This is an essential aspect of my personality and not just an expectation of my profession.
Secondly, personal growth and professional development are concepts that I prize. You can expect that I will encourage you in both of these areas.
Finally, another one of my core goals is to coach you to overcome obstacles. I will assist you in becoming the best possible version of yourself– RWA

“I feel that a respectful and trusting relationship helps my clients build strong coping skills and encourages positive change.” “My counseling philosophy is based mostly on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe that optimistically restructuring thoughts will help shape healthy behaviors and build confidence.”
All of us perceive the world in ways that differ from everyone else. We require special encouragement to think with our own interests at heart, problem-solve, and to behave in responsible ways. Our thoughts shape our behaviors. “I will assist you to to be your own best friend, and to challenge yourself to build a happier frame of mind.”
