Hello and Welcome
Starting counselling can be intimidating, but having the right counsellor can help.
Whether you have a specific issue you'd like to address or are looking to improve your mental health in general, psychotherapy can help you learn the skills you need to be more successful in life.
LAH Counselling provides tailored treatments plans designed to address the clients priority issues making the best possible use of their time and money.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy, is much more than talking. Psychotherapy is aimed at helping clients address a range of problems in their lives. Some seek counselling for guidance on dealing with personal relationships, managing troubling thoughts or emotions, or because they feel unable to stop an unhelpful behaviour. Psychotherapy is about equipping clients with the skills they need to manage these, and many other problems.
The focus of this form of therapy is to enable people to better manage stressful situations so they can experience an improved quality of life.
As a Registered Nurse Psychotherapist, services may be covered by some insurance providers. Clients covered by Non-Insured Health Benefits are able to receive services without a direct cost.
Following a free 15-minute phone consultation to assess the fit between the client's needs and the practitioner's skills, an intake assessment is booked. This 50-minute session is $200. Follow-up appointments are 30-45 minutes in duration and cost $150 per session.
A limited number of sliding-scale (reduced-fee) spots are available.
Payment methods accepted include:
- Visa and Mastercard
Is Psychotherapy right for you?
I believe maintaining mental health requires regular mental health check-ins and tune-ups via psychotherapy.
I believe psychotherapy is suitable for everyone, but it may not be right for everyone at all times.
Psychotherapy involves learning, so it is best implemented when you are:
Of relatively stable mental health and:
Interested in learning to manage stress better
Looking to change a specific behaviour
Willing to learn new skills
