How do I know if this program is covered by my benefits or insurance?
The program is covered under plans that include “Registered Psychotherapist.”
What is the optional parent support session?
We recognize the benefits of parental support in managing student stress. With the student's
consent, we offer a brief 15-minute parent phone call after Week 3 of the program to provide an update on our progress and offer guidance on how parents can support the process. Additionally, upon program completion, there is an optional 50-minute parent session where the therapist provides psychoeducation on stress management in students and offers specific strategies to help the parent best support their child based on observations made over the 6 weeks. The fee for the 50-minute parent session is $100+HST.
What if the student does not wish to attend for the full 6 weeks?
The program is designed to meet each student at their current level of motivation and willingness to participate. Our objective is to establish a strong connection with the student, ensuring their comfort in attending sessions, maximizing their learning experience, and fostering their desire to complete
the entire duration of the program. Although the program is most effective when attended for the full
6 weeks, we can make modifications to accommodate a shorter duration if necessary.
How will we know if progress was made?
A pre and post program survey will be conducted to determine effectiveness. If the student provides consent, the results can be shared with parents upon request.
What are CBT and DBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It aims to help individuals identify and change negative or unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their emotional distress. By challenging and replacing these negative thoughts with more realistic and positive ones, CBT helps individuals develop healthier coping mechanisms and improve their overall well-being.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a type of therapy that emphasizes the importance of accepting and validating one's emotions while also teaching skills to regulate intense emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and develop mindfulness techniques to stay present in the moment. It provides individuals with tools to manage distress, tolerate emotional pain, and make positive changes in their lives.
Where is the office located for in person sessions?
460 Brant St., Burlington, Ontario
How do the online sessions work?
The workbook will be mailed to the student. A link to the video conferencing program will be provided. The student can access the session on their phone or computer from the comfort of their home.
Can the student continue working with the therapist once the program is completed?
Certainly. Please mention this to your therapist to discuss details regarding scheduling and rate.
What if I don’t have insurance coverage or I can’t afford the program?
We offer a reduced rate fee to individuals who require it. There are limited spaces available so please inquire if you would benefit from this option.
