Intern Program (Affordable Services)
Our Intern Program
We believe that the residents of Ontario should have access to mental health and psychological services that are readily available to them. We also recognize that not everyone is able to afford these necessary services. In order to reach out to this population, we are re-launching our Supervised Intern Program.
We have assembled together a team of competent and compassionate interns who are ready to meet your counselling and assessment needs at a reduced fee. Our interns have been carefully screened and will be supervised by a registered psychologist to ensure you are always in safe and caring hands.
Our Co-Therapy Model
A special feature of our intern program is that two interns will be present at each of your sessions. You will receive the undivided attention of two counsellors-in-training, who, together with you, will devise the best possible treatment plan to address your individual needs.
We strive to make our services accessible to most individuals and families. Our intern counselling fees for general counselling is $80.00 per 50 minute session. Each intern will consider social-economic factors and will discuss fees.
