The Ottawa Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre offers flexible daytime, evening and Saturday appointments. Please contact us and we will match you with a psychotherapist that can best meet your counselling needs.
Fees and Insurance coverage?
Our fees vary per therapist, you will find what each therapist charges under ‘our therapists’ tab. Fees vary between $125/hr and $200/hr depending on the therapist. Our services are not covered by OHIP and our therapists don’t offer a sliding scale. We do however, have Master level student interns who charge $80/hr and offer a sliding scale if needed.
If you have medical coverage through your employer or individual plan, please contact your insurance company before your appointment as many insurance plans do cover a portion of the services we provide.
We do not provide direct billing services so it could be beneficial to ask for clarity on the procedure for reimbursement, for example:
- do you need a physician’s referral (some plans require this)
- does your policy cover specific psychological services such as those provided by a:
- Social Worker
- Psychotherapist, or
- Professional supervised by a Psychologist
- does your insurer reimburse a percentage fee per visit or are you entitled to a set amount per visit with a maximum reimbursement per year
Cancelling your Appointment
We understand that at times things happen beyond our control and with that in mind we ask that you be mindful when needing to cancel or bring adjustments to your session. Please contact your therapist at least 24 hours before your scheduled time for this purpose otherwise, we reserve the right to bill you for the session.
