F.A.Q


People seek therapy for different reasons. One of the most popular reasons has to do with emotions. Emotions can be challenging and most find it difficult to mange them. Therapists can help you manage your emotions and decrease the distress that you may be experiencing. Psychotherapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, EMDER and Internal Family Systems can help you regulate emotions more effectively. 
 
Regardless of the therapeutic orientation, the most important factor in successful therapy is the alliance between therapist and client. Our therapists will listen to your story, help you to make sense of your experiences, and will allow you to lead where you feel comfortable. The goal is to empower you with the skills, tools and know how to move forward successfully.

Online therapy is a very good option to learn to self-regulate emotions. Research validates that online therapy can be effective just as in person therapy. The benefit of online therapy is convenience and access. At My Therapy.ca, we can connect you to a qualified and experienced registered psychotherapist to help you work through challenging situations.


Counselling typically refers to consultations that are more short-term (typically 1 to 8 sessions), which can be resolved more or less on the conscious level. Psychotherapy is more longer term and goes deeper. It examines a person’s psychological history in depth and resolves  issues such as anxiety, depression and trauma. The goal of psychotherapy is not to change you. Rather, is is about making you a better person- more aware, compassionate, empathic and accepting of yourself and others.   

Research has shown that 75 percent of people who enter psychotherapy derive some benefit from it. Psychotherapy has proven to create positive changes in emotions and behaviour and linked with positive changes in the brain and body. 

In psychotherapy you can expect too develop better relationship skills, achieve personal goals, overcome issues such as depression and anxiety, boost self-confidence, improve overall mood, and think more positively. You will also find yourself taking more responsibility  than blaming others. Additionally, you can develop a better self-image and live less with guilt and shame.

If you will be using your health insurance, please have your information ready for the intake team. It is important the therapist you meet has the credentials necessary for coverage.

You may want to ask yourself some of these questions when you are using health insurance: Do I have coverage for mental health services? What is the coverage amount?  Has my deductible been met? What is the coverage cost per therapy session? Is approval required from my primary care physician?

​After each appoinment you will receive an invoice to submit to your insurance company. My Therapy.ca does not offer direct billing.

If you have any questions about extended health benefits, please speak to our intake team and a team member would be happy to assist you.
