Individual Counselling Services

I am not currently accepting new clients.

 

I offer individual counselling for adults, virtual and in-person, and see clients Tuesday - Thursday afternoon and evening, and Friday during the day.

 

FYI - Ajax, my 4 year old Black Lab, often works as an "assistant" for in person sessions.

(mostly, he lends us his calming energy while he naps).

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and my license number is #17586. 

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. There are many: Green Shield, Medavie Blue Cross, Desjardins, Great West Life, Manulife, and Sun Life Financial insurance plans that are covered. Please contact your provider before the first counselling session to see if RCCs are a part of your insurance plan and to verify how your plan compensates you for counselling services. Swell Counselling Services does not offer direct billing but I will be happy to provide you with anything you need to submit for possible reimbursement.

I recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?

  • Does my health insurance cover Registered Counselling Therapists or Canadian Certified Counsellors?

  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?

  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?

  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
