- How long are sessions?
All sessions are one hour in length.
- How often should I come?
Ideally, it is recommended that you come once a week in the beginning, so that you can get into the groove and then switch to less if you wish.
- How many sessions will I need?
It’s impossible to predict how long you will be in therapy once you begin. For some, a short stint is all they need, for others, therapy begins a process that can take years. Therapy is most effective when you are willing to take it beyond the hour you spend with your therapist and into your daily life.
- What if I have to cancel?
Similar to most professions, a 24-hour cancellation policy is in place. Without sufficient notice, you will be charged the full amount for your appointment. The exception to this is illness or bad weather.
- Is psychotherapy covered by OHIP?
No, however if you have private insurance, check to see if psychotherapy or counselling is covered under your plan.
