Frequently Asked Questions

Text Therapy allows you to contact your therapist right when you’re dealing with difficult thoughts or emotions. It is also a great resource if you feel like you’d benefit from checking in with someone regularly. 

Once you select your therapist and sign up for Text Therapy, we set you up with a secure messaging thread where you can send a message to your therapist whenever you want or need. You’ll receive one response from your therapist daily, five days a week, along with a comprehensive summary once a week, based on all of the messages you sent to your therapist that week. 

Many of our clients find it helpful to do phone and/or video therapy sessions with their therapist in addition to Text Therapy. This option is available by simply booking additional therapy sessions using our booking page.

Get started for only $29/week plus tax and improve your mental wellness today. Just so you know, this service is charged upon booking with a therapist, with payments recurring monthly. As well, insurance receipts available upon request.

Once you’ve paid online, you’ll receive a receipt that includes the necessary info to submit to your benefits provider for reimbursement.

Most benefits plans include coverage for therapy provided by social workers, psychotherapists and counsellors. Please double check with your group benefits administrator before booking a session just to be sure.

Video therapy is the closest to traditional in-person therapy and has been proven to be just as effective (not to mention necessary in a pandemic). With video therapy, all you need is a computer or mobile device with a webcam to connect with your therapist. Sessions are one hour on our secure platform.

Phone therapy is like video therapy but without the webcam. Connect with your therapist on any phone, mobile device or computer with VoIP (i.e. Skype).
