FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are your fees covered by OHIP?2018-10-05T12:02:28+00:00

Fees for counselling or psychotherapy are not covered by OHIP. Coverage for counselling and psychotherapy is provided by most extended health benefit plans. It is advisable to check to see if you have such coverage through your employer.

How often should I come for counselling?2018-10-05T12:02:28+00:00

This is something that the counsellor will discuss during the first counselling session. However, while there may be exceptions, it is generally advisable to plan on scheduling weekly or biweekly sessions. Duration of treatment is dependent on a number of factors, including the severity of the concern for which help is being sought.

Is everything confidential?2018-10-05T12:02:28+00:00

Conversations with the counsellor are kept in strict confidence. This includes the handling of files that contain case notes, records, and psychological test results.

If there is a need or desire to disclose information from files with another professional e.g. medical doctor, lawyer, pastor, or third party billing source (for employee benefits, for example), the client will be consulted first and asked to sign a release of information document.

Legal Limitations to Confidentiality:

  • Counsellors are required by law to report to the appropriate authorities if there is physical or sexual abuse of a child under the age of 18 or if there is reason to believe a person’s life is in jeopardy.
  • If a judge subpoenas a counsellor to testify in court or to release the contents of a file, the counsellor is required to do so.
What is the difference between counselling and life coaching?2018-10-05T12:02:28+00:00

The overall aim of counselling is to work toward a peaceful, purposeful and fulfilling life, by helping you develop the strengths to:

  • Overcome the distressing problems of life
  • Overcome the disruptive painful influences of your past
  • Overcome emotional difficulties

Life coaching focuses less on overcoming difficulties and focuses more on developing and building skills that help individuals:

  • Expand their vision
  • Build their confidence
  • Unlock their potential
  • Take practical steps to achieve their goals

Individual, Couples and Group Counselling

At Pathways, we believe that the best way to deal with emotional concerns is to discuss them in a supportive environment. We provide therapy and counselling service for individuals and couples in both one-on-one and group settings. Your life issues are unique, and we will always take the time to determine what type of setting will best meet your needs. We will work with you in individual and group counselling settings while providing you with the correct guidance and support. While we welcome clients of all faiths and backgrounds, we also offer specialized Christian counselling to address your emotional and spiritual needs.
