About The Centre


Latchman Narain Partner Assault Response Services of Toronto

Latchman Narain - Partner Assault Response Services of Toronto.The Centre was founded in 2000 by Latchman Narain, Ph.D (see below) in an effort to address a dire need in the Markham-Scarborough community, considering that there are few counselling resources available to deal with the many individual and family problems stemming from the stress of everyday life.

Since its inception, the Centre has experienced rapid growth and has extended its services to North York, in the western side of Toronto. Most clients have reported that they have benefited immensely from the Centre’s counselling services which integrates both eastern and western treatment approaches (see below) . This has been particularly true for those clients experiencing challenges with partner relationships and particularly issues of assault in their interactions. The Centre is considered by many as offering a valuable service by offering the PARS Program on an individual basis.

Latchman P. Narain, founder and director of the Anger Management Centre, is of Guyanese parentage. He completed high school in Guyana and university training in Canada and the United States. He is  a family therapist who has a specialization in partner relationships, holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Bio-Chemistry and Masters and Doctorate degrees in Counselling Psychology. He also has a Diploma in Cross Cultural Counselling from St. John’s University, New York City. Latchman is also a certified parent educator. His previous background includes working as a family therapist in Toronto, teaching and guidance counselling in New York city.

He is a registered member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrics and Psychotherapists (OACCPP) of Canada.

Latchman has been practicing in the field of family counselling for the past twenty (20) years and has specialized mainly in the areas of Anger Management and Partner Assault since 2000. He has extensive experience in the practice of mindfulness and  mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques.

Currently he offers individual counselling for the Partner Assault Response (PAR) Program.

He has also published some seminal articles and facilitated many workshops in the field of counselling and mental health for businesses and corporations. His areas of expertise include Anger Management, Domestic Violence (PAR) Program, Depression, Anxiety, Personal Development and  Effecting Parenting. In addition, he presented a highly successful monthly seminar series on the topic: “Anger, Spirituality and Relationships” at The Learning Annex in Toronto, Canada. Currently, he facilitates groups for adults with partner relationship issues on a regular basis in the Scarborough – Markham area.

Latchman’s client-centered approach integrates both Eastern approaches, such as mindfulness (vipassna) meditation, and Western treatment models such as evidenced-based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, applied within a holistic and culturally appropriate context.

Owing to demand, we are now also offering some Skype and telephone counselling sessions for PARS and other programs.
