We carry the certifications Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) or Registered Social Worker (RSW).

Your therapist would be pleased to discuss duration of sessions longer than the usual therapeutic hour. This can certainly be arranged with your therapist in advance. Please note that longer sessions will be charged on a pro-rata basis.

Reduced Fees

We believe that people should not be denied counselling due to financial constraints. ​Most of our counsellors can offer clients a reduced fee. Do verify with your counsellor before therapy begins.
