Reduced Fee Services
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 providing reduced fee services.
Counselling sessions are offered at a reduced rate of 50$ (including HST) with dedicated students who are working towards a Masters In Counselling Psychology. We have carefully selected students based on alignment with our values and commitment to client care and attention. Students receive comprehensive supervision under a Registered Psychotherapist.
