Check our fees
Being Human: Psychotherapy and Consulting Services is a private firm that offers services to individuals, families, groups and/or private companies.
OHIP does not currently pay for psychotherapy. Your employer or extended health plan may provide partial reimbursement.
Fees are applied to hourly sessions, reports/letters and consultation time. Payments can be made by cheque, cash or e-transfer.
Payments are due at the start of each session, please ensure to discuss any questions or concerns with your therapist.
You are encouraged to contact your health benefits to see if psychotherapy is covered if delivered by a registered psychotherapist.
In the event that you do not have benefits, you can claim your psychotherapy expenses at tax time for a credit as long as you have
a prescription from your doctor.
HST and Psychotherapy:
There is a new petition hosted on the Canadian House of Commons website, to exempt psychotherapy services from HST:
“We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to remove the HST on psychotherapy as a piece
of the overall effort to make mental health care as accessible as possible to the citizens of Canada.”
This is the link to the petition, and to more information about it:
