Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Our free consultations are about getting the right fit, because without the right fit it is harder to get good results.
The consultation is not a therapy session, but it is your opportunity to clarify your needs and goals and to find out if your chosen therapist is right for you.
It lasts about 30-45 minutes, face-to-face in person in the therapist's office setting.
In a consultation, your questions can be answered directly, including questions about the process of psychotherapy, experience, training, credentials, times, fees, and related matters.
A consultation is not for active work or demonstrations of techniques, but you can certainly ask about the particular methods used by any therapist on the site.
Our principal concern is to help you assess whether you have made the right choice based on fit.
We'll refer you free of charge to another member if that provides the best fit for you.
NOTE: This does not apply to consultations for couples therapy; because of the more complicated dynamics of couples work, the therapists reserve the right to charge an interview assessment fee for couples consultations.
