Mindful of the ongoing impact and influence of COVID-19, clinicians are offering a variety of meeting options (i.e., some continue to only offer online sessions through our client management system [Owl] and telephone sessions while some offer a mix of in-person, online, and telephone sessions).

If you would like to access in-person sessions, email your clinician and let them know. In-person sessions are only available to individuals who are at low-risk for exposure to COVID-19, are not presenting with COVID-19 symptoms, and have not had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19. Patients who attend in-person sessions are required to consult with their clinician about facemask preferences.

If you have any questions, please contact your clinician or the Clinic Director, Adam Terpstra, at [email protected]. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e., the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.

Land Acknowledgement

Church Wellesley Counselling and Psychotherapy is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Ojibway, Mississaugas of the Credit, Huron-Wendat, and Anishnaabe peoples.

We recognize that Indigenous communities experience higher rates of mental health issues and we strive to offer mental health services that are culturally informed and mindful of the specific issues impacting Indigenous communities. We strive to increase accessibility to mental health services through our collaborative work with NIHB / IRS RHSP and our federal charity Bridging With Support.

We acknowledge that many past and current counselling practices have been impacted, influenced, and shaped by colonialism. Through continuing education and supervision from Indigenous leaders in our field, we hope to continue our healing contributions to Indigenous populations of Canada.
