Prefer to Talk to a Real Person?
You can now book a complimentary information session through our online booking system. Your session can take place over the phone, instant-messaging or a video call. During your information session, Margo, one of our skilled LifeRoots therapists, will happily answer any of your general questions and familiarize you to the counselling process. When you reach out to Margo, you have access to our added expertise in finding you a therapist, as well as a larger database of therapists who we may recommend for you.
While our Therapy Match system is ideal for those who have a clear picture of what they are after, a complimentary information session with Margo offers us an opportunity to get a glimpse into your unique story, allowing us to provide you with a more personalized therapist recommendation. If you prefer, you may also request a follow up over email. Margo will email you back within 24-hours (often sooner) during the week, or within 48-hours if you reach out over the weekend.
Tips for Using our Therapy Match Filters
Having trouble finding a match that meets your specifications?
Sometimes if you consider adding additional availability or adjust your budget, you may find a match pop up. Also, feel free to send us an email with your preferences, and we will see what other options we may have up our sleeve for you! Even if we aren’t don’t have a therapist who suits you, we would be honoured to help you find someone who can!
Not sure what Therapy Approach you want?
Feel free to leave this area blank, and your therapist will explore options with you at your first session. The majority of our clients have no explicit preference for therapy type when they start counselling. You can always simply show up with your story, experiences, and a willingness to learn and grow with us. We’ll figure this out together!
If you decide you’d like to have a therapist consult with you about the therapy options at your disposal, in advance of your first session, you can also explore this during a complimentary information session.
Have a tight budget and struggling to find an appropriate fit?
We realize that our clients have a range in terms of level of access to benefits and ability to afford full-rate sessions. It’s important to us that you’re able to sustain the cost of your counselling, so we like to ask about this right at the start, so there are no surprises. Our Therapist Match filters let you sort therapists based on budget per session, so you can select a therapist who will be affordable for you. Sometimes clients also consider coming in bi-weekly, to increase their per-session budget. It can be helpful to take into consideration that many clients prefer to come more often at the start (usually once a week), an initial investment that can at times be offset by their benefit coverage. As you gain momentum and confidence within your areas of focus, along your counselling journey, you may decide to spread your sessions out to bi-weekly, monthly, or as-needed, depending on what works for you!
