How do I make an appointment?
You can email us through our website here or call us at 519-302-2300 to speak to our front desk team. The receptionist will ask you general information questions regarding the support you are looking for. This will help them pair you with a counsellor/therapist who is trained to work with the issues you would like support with. They will then book you with an appointment that works for you. You can also request a free 15 minute face-to-face consult with your counsellor/therapist first. This option is for those who would like to get to know their counsellor or therapist before making any kind of financial commitment.
What can I expect during my first visit?
Reaching out for help is not always easy and we want to make the process as simple as possible.
When you arrive, our receptionist will greet you and have you fill out a form with basic information and sign a confidentiality agreement. You will then pay for you appointment before seeing the counsellor. Your therapist will bring you into their office and you will begin by getting to know each other. This is an important first step as it helps build rapport and trust. The therapist will also go over the confidentiality and privacy agreement. Questions can be asked at any time, and are encouraged, as you and your therapist work towards creating goals that are both realistic and achievable. At the end, your therapist will walk you up to the front where you can book another appointment.
How much will it cost?
Our fees range from $100-$140 per session, depending on which service you need.
Each client is given a customized treatment plan so the total cost depends on each individuals needs.
If you have extended health care benefits, reach out to your provider to find out if they cover psychotherapy (counselling) or speech therapy (speech language pathologist) and how much they cover.
Unfortunately, our services are not covered by OHIP.
Can anyone call and ask if I am attending therapy?
No, unless you have provided written permission, we cannot confirm or deny that you are a client at Brant Mental Health Solutions. Your privacy is importance to us.
What happens if my therapist is not a good fit?
Although we try to fit you with a therapist who is best suited to work with the issues you are seeking therapy for, sometimes there are reasons you and your therapist do not connect. If this happens, you can speak to us about the issue and we will help you find someone else who might be better suited.
What forms of payments do you take?
Fees are paid before each session at the reception desk. We accept cash, debit, Mastercard and Visa.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL AN APPOINTMENT?
If you need to cancel an appointment, please call 519-302-2300 to speak with a receptionist. The receptionist can also reschedule a new appointment for you at that time. To avoid paying a session fee for a cancelled appointment, please provide 24 hours prior notice.
