Psychotherapy for Adults
We provide psychotherapy services for adults 18+. The goal is to create an open and collaborate therapeutic relationship, and establish trust to be able to talk about thoughts and feelings that might create barriers to emotional well-being and social functioning. We can also help with navigating the many life transitions that are a part of adulthood, including work stressors, social experiences, relationships, and establishing healthy habits to maintain good mental health. Psychotherapy can help you work towards specific goals to improve your own well-being and create positive behaviour change.

Sessions will be billed at an hourly rate of $130.00* per 50 minute session. This applies to direct hours spent with the client and family. Indirect hours used to support the client's programming will be factored into this hourly rate.
Requests to collaborate with other professionals (ex. school staff, other therapists working with the client etc.) are welcomed. Support with additional indirect tasks outside of what is typically involved in psychotherapy treatment planning and monitoring is also available (ex. contributing to a behaviour plan or determination of needs report, writing a therapy letter of recommendation etc.). This additional time would billed as direct hours, at the regular hourly rate.
If the client is receiving both psychotherapy and ABA at Best Behaviour, there will be time allocated for both therapists to collaborate. One meeting is required, at minimum, in order to establish how each service can compliment each other, and establish the frequency and details of the collaboration. This time would billed as direct hours, at the regular hourly rate.
A credit card is required to be kept on file for contactless payments. All payments are processed through Jane Payments. Only cards accepted by Jane will be accepted as eligible forms of payment.
Payment is due upon completion of the therapy session, and payments are processed at the end of each session. An invoice and receipt will be provided via email to the email address on file. Please contact email@example.com with any questions or concerns related to billing or invoicing.
Pricing for Low-Cost Sessions (available May 2024)
We understand that the cost of therapy can be a barrier to seeking help. To make therapy more accessible, we are pleased to offer low-cost sessions with certain members of our psychotherapy team. Working with one of our practicum students can provide you with the same quality care you would receive with any of our therapists, at a reduced fee. All practicum students are enrolled in masters-level coursework, registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), are closely supervised, and participate in various training opportunities during their time at Best Behaviour.
Sessions will be billed at a 50% reduced rate. The regular rate for psychotherapy sessions is $130.00 per 50 minute session, and so the reduced rate is $65.00.
The following cancellation policy will be included in your registration form:
I understand that ...
In the event of a cancellation, I must notify my therapist directly or by following the instructions on Best Behaviour's online booking site.
My appointment time is reserved just for me. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in my therapist's day that could have been filled by another client. As such, Best Behaviour Inc. requires 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to my appointment. If I provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss my appointment, I will be charged the full session fee to the card on file.
In the event of inclement weather, Best Behaviour Inc. reminds all clients and team members to travel by car only when it is safe to do so. When you do travel, allow for extra time, take care, and have caution on the roads. If my therapist is unable to get to a session due to inclement weather, they may cancel the session. If it is a centre-based session and the centre is closed due to inclement weather, all parties will be notified. In both situations, the session will not be charged. If the centre is open, then it is expected that the client will be attending their session. If I provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss my appointment, I will be charged the full session fee to the card on file.
Late arrivals and pick-ups can affect progress, and impact the schedule of the client that is seen after. If the client is late to a session, I am required to contact my therapist. The session will not be extended to make up the missed time. If I have not contacted my therapist, and they are unable to get ahold of me, they will wait for fifteen (15) minutes and then may leave. I will be charged the full session fee to the card on file. If I am able to report that I am on my way, my therapist will wait if they are able to wait in a safe, comfortable environment (ex. in the centre, in their house). However, if they are unable to wait in an appropriate environment or I am unable to attend the session as a result of the lateness, I will be charged the full session fee to the card on file. If the session is extended due to late pick-ups, the extra time will be billed at the regular hourly rate.
If my therapist cancels a session for any reason, they will contact me as soon as possible to reschedule. I will not be charged for a session that is cancelled by my therapist. My therapist will also contact me if they expect to be late to the session. The session will be extended to make up the missed time or the time will be deducted from the total session length.
If attendance falls below 75% of sessions scheduled, Best Behaviour Inc. reserves the right to offer the recurring appointment slots to another client. This will not be done without significant advance notice and communication. Events such as vacations or holidays will not count against this policy.
