How Many Sessions?

I am often asked how many sessions it takes. The official answer is: "That depends on many factors". While this is the correct answer, most individuals come and see me for a brief period of time (12-22 sessions / 3-5 months).

Before you begin working with someone, please decide for yourself how comfortable you are with their experience and approach. A Psychiatrist, Psychologist or Psychotherapist with a few years of supervised experience is clearly different than a Counsellor with over 20 years of direct client contact experience from private practice. (experience will translate in how many sessions it takes to reach your therapeutic goals)

Are Sessions Tax Deductible?

For self-employed people: Your sessions may be considered 'Business Coaching' or 'Management Training' which would be tax deductible for income tax and HST and require an Invoice/Receipt with HST number.

Free Session

*The first session is a discovery session. In the first session we cover relevant topics and methods pertaining to your situation. This allows us to get acquainted with each other to make sure its a good match to be able to do this work. ONE free consultation per person. No-Show and Cancelled sessions are charged at $50.
