Therapists Listed With Affordable Therapy Network Offer:

LOW COST RATES

Many listed therapists offer sessions at a low-cost rate ranging between $50- $65 to support those experiencing financial difficulty.

SLIDING SCALE FEES

All listed therapists offer sliding scale rates for those who don’t require the low-cost rate, but cannot access standard therapy fees.  These generally range between $70-$120, and varies between individual therapists.

STANDARD RATES

For those who can pay standard rates, you are helping our therapists provide more options to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access support.

About Sliding Scale Services

The level of sensitivity, training, and skill involved is reflective of the value of therapeutic 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 of the practitioners listed.  They will be more than happy to talk with you about your needs and determine a plan that will work for both of you.

Serving The Community

The community we aim to serve are those who, for various reasons, cannot pay standard rates but would really like someone to talk to.

While many therapists offer a sliding scale, knowing where to find them is not easy and it’s not always comfortable for those seeking these services to ask for them. 

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

Providing Options

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

The process required to utilize such services can be long and daunting, which often results in people not getting support or in having their options greatly limited.

By providing a visible and accessible resource of therapists and other support services at reduced rates, we aim to provide more options and choice to a community in need.

The Affordable Therapy Network is an initiative to Increase Access to Affordable Therapy and Counselling Services across Canada.

As the project expands beyond Toronto, we are actively growing our list of Therapists across Canada.

If you are a Counsellor, Therapist, or Mental Health Professional based in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, or in any other Province or City across Canada, we would love to hear from you.

Who We Are

The Affordable Therapy Network was founded by Social Service Worker, Katie McCowan, in 2016 out of Toronto, Ontario, to help bridge a gap in Mental Health Care accessibility. The development of the project has been an ongoing collaboration with service users, peers, and professionals.

We started as a Grassroots initiative with a small number of therapists listed across Toronto, and have grown a lot since then! 

We take user feedback to heart and continuously strive to make the Network as accessible and relevant as possible.  We welcome your feedback.
