One on One Counselling FAQ

What's your clinical counselling timings?

At the Thrive Business Centre: Tue & Thurs: 12 pm - 9 pm & Wed: 2 - 8 pm, At the Kensington location: Monday and Friday from 12 pm - 9 pm. Subsequent sessions focus on your individualized goals.

Will my health insurance cover most of the costs of individual counselling?

Almost all Extended Health Care Plans cover all or a portion of the costs for a psychologist under "psychologist services", "psychotherapy", or "counselling". Contact your insurance agent for more information on reimbursement procedures and coverage information. Direct Billing can be performed for a number of companies. Direct billing is where the Psychologist will bill your insurance company and you will only be responsible to pay for your portion of the session cost. Click here to see if yours can be directly billed.

What are the first few sessions of Individual counselling like?

In the first few sessions we will go through your primary concerns and begin identifying which of these concerns we should be working on immediately. I will work with you to develop a therapeutic plan designed to address your unique needs, goals, and problems/issues. Together we will prioritize which goals you would like to "target" first.

What are the steps I need to take to begin the counselling process?

If you are worried about your mental health, stressed out, depressed or just trying to take care of yourself request a free 20-minute consultation. From this point we will book an appointment in person or online and then develop goals from there to best meet your needs.
