Frequently Asked Questions
At Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling, we believe that when seeking therapy, it’s crucial that you trust your therapist. That’s why we offer a free 15-minute phone consultation where you can get to know us and ensure we’re the right fit for you.
Additionally, we ensure the right fit by matching you with a psychologist who specializes in the specific area of issues you want to address. This personalized approach can significantly enhance the effectiveness of therapy, as it allows for a deeper understanding of your concerns and allows therapists to tailor the treatment to meet your unique needs.
All of our therapists can deal with various needs, including emotional difficulties, anxiety disorders, relationship concerns, and life challenges, all with a primary focus on enhancing mental wellness.
At Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling, our individual therapy is commonly broken down into three/four phases:
Assessment Phase (1-3 sessions): In the Assessment Phase, the clients get to know the therapist, explain their challenges, and set a therapy goal.
Working Phase (8-24 sessions): The Working Phase is when the work begins through therapy interventions, learning new tools, and having therapeutic conversations that can help you to reach your therapy goal.
Closure Phase 1-3 (sessions): Once you have reached your goal, you review what has changed and test the stability of change.
Maintenance Phase: Monthly, quarterly, or yearly check-ins (as needed.) Clients come back for "booster" sessions if a relapse occurs or for proactive check-ins.
Our fees are based on the Recommended Fee Schedule provided by The Psychologists Association Of Alberta. Our therapists will discuss our session fees upon intake, and help you determine what therapist expertise will meet your needs.
If you have insurance, you may want to check that it covers both provisional psychologists and registered psychologists, as some don’t cover provisional psychologists.
