INTRODUCING THE NEW
Affordable Therapy Program
Affordable Therapy Program
At the Journey Counselling and Psychotherapy, we believe that every person who wants therapy should receive therapy regardless of the cost.
In January 2023, we launched our new affordable therapy program which allows us to provide therapy to clients on a sliding scale based on what fits their budget.
Clients will discuss their customized rate during their free consultation session with our Care Coordinator
Please read through the FAQ’s below. If you or someone you know would benefit from this program, please email our Care Coordinator to be placed on a waiting list.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who Are The Therapists?
Sessions will be with our student interns. Our interns are fully qualified masters level students who have completed all required course work and are now entering into the field of practice. They will work in the same collaborative team environment as our current therapists and will have the full support and mentorship of our staff. Additionally they will be receiving direct supervision by CRPO qualified therapists.
What Type Of Services Are Covered Under The Affordable Therapy Program?
All of our current services will be offered under the Affordable Therapy Program. This includes youth and adult individual sessions, couples/ relationship and family therapy.
How It Works?
Our waitlist is now open and spots will be open on a first come first served basis. Clients will be provided with a number of sessions based on demand and therapist availability. If you would like more sessions once your allotment is used up, you may be provided with an additional allotment or placed back on the short waiting list so other clients may receive care as well.
If you are a current client who is hoping to utilize the affordable therapy program, you will be required to change therapists from your current therapist to one of our student interns in January. Your therapist will work with the student intern to provide you with a seamless transition and the same level of care you have been receiving.
What Does It Cost?
Clients will discuss their budget for therapy with our Care Coordinator during their free consultation. Together they will determine what is accessible for the client. Rates in the Affordable Therapy program are offered on a sliding scale, under our posted prices. Clients will have to prove financial need to qualify for the sessions and sessions will be subject to availability.
How Do I Prove Financial Need?
Each client will be assessed on an individual basis. You will not be required to provide proof of income. Some factors that would qualify you for our affordable therapy program would be; multiple family members accessing therapy, if you are currently on ODSP, single parent/ single income families, low income households. Assessments will be informal and will be conducted by our care coordinator during your initial contact session. If clients are found to be accessing our affordable therapy program unnecessarily, they will be transitioned to another therapist.
