“Affordable Therapy Network is Canada’s Low Cost & Sliding Scale Therapist Directory. We aim to provide affordable therapy options for EVERYONE.”

Low Cost Therapy

Many listed therapists are able to provide lower cost fees to those who need them. 

 These fees usually range between $40-$65, including PRO-BONO and PAY WHAT YOU CAN options, occasionally available with student interns.


Sliding Scale Rates

Sliding Scale therapy by fully licensed practitioners on the Affordable Therapy Network usually ranges between $80-$120.

Therapists listed on ATN work independently and set their own rates based on a variety of factors.  Feel free to reach out to the them to chat about their fees & availability.


Free Consultations – Find The Best Fit

Finding the right fit matters. It’s important that you are able to thoroughly assess your options without making a financial commitment.

Our Aim And Mission:

Serving The Community

Affordable Therapy Network aims to serve are those who, for various reasons, cannot pay standard rates but would really like someone to talk to.  While our home base is in Toronto, Ontario, therapists are available all across Canada.

Sliding scale services aren’t new, but knowing where to find them isn’t always easy – and it’s also not easy for those who need these services, to ask for them.

When a person is ready to seek out the support of a therapist, the process can be intimidating.  We aim to make that process easier.

Access To Quality Care

The level of sensitivity, extensive training, and skill involved is reflective of the value of counselling and therapy services.

While this is so, many providers recognize that not everyone is able to pay standard fees and offer a reduced rate (sliding scale) to a limited number of clients in need.

 We invite you to contact one the affordable therapy network practitioners.  They will be more than happy to talk with you about your needs and determine an plan that works for you both.

More & Better Options

A secondary aim of this initiative is to provide affordable options for those who do not want to go through publicly funded organizations. 

The process required to access support can be long and daunting.  This often results in people not getting help or in having their options greatly limited.

By providing a visible and accessible directory of therapists  who provide reduced rates, we aim to provide more options and choice to a community in need.

Affordable Therapy Network aims to Increase Access to Support Across Canada

Affordable Therapy Network is based in Toronto, Ontario.  We’ve expanded over the years and therapists are now available in Hamilton, Ottawa, Halifax, Vancouver, Barrie, Oshawa, Saint John, Montreal, Calgary, and many other Canadian cities and towns. 

Online therapists are available in ALL PROVINCES across Canada.

We are grateful to the therapists who list with us for providing affordable therapy options so that more people can access the support they need.  Please reach out if you need someone to talk to, and share this with your friends and loved ones who might benefit from these services.

If you are a Counsellor/Therapist who provides therapy in Canada, we welcome you to join the ATN Therapist Directory.

Who We Are

Affordable Therapy Network is a community of independent therapists who offer Low Cost and Sliding Scale rates so that more people across Canada can access the support they need.

The development of this project has been an ongoing collaboration with service users, peers, and professionals across Canada.  We started as a small, local, grassroots project with a small number of therapists listed in Toronto, Ontario and have grown a lot since then!

Thanks to our many caring therapists and team collaborators, tens of thousands of people across Canada have been able to access support they can afford.
