Psychotherapy / Counselling

Psychotherapy is a type of conversation which addresses personal difficulties. It allows an individual, or a couple, to talk openly and confidentially about their concerns and feelings with a trained professional.  Psychotherapy involves developing a therapeutic relationship, communicating and creating a dialogue, and working to overcome problematic thoughts or behaviours. It can help find ways to ease pain and suffering, and increase satisfaction, meaning, and connection in your life.

Therapy fees covered by OHIP? Or by insurance?

In Ontario, OHIP does not cover psychotherapy services. Many private extended health care policies do cover psychotherapy. For specific coverage, check your individual policy to confirm details of coverage.   Some of our therapists have available a limited number of sliding scale or reduced fees within their practice based on individual needs.
