DO I HAVE TO BOOK A CONSULTATION?
Yes, this provides you and the team a chance to talk and determine which therapist is the best fit for you and your needs. During this call, you can be plugged into an Initial Session so you can start your therapy journey. If you’d like to wait and think about it, you’re welcome to book an Initial Session through the Jane booking platform at a later date.
How do I pay?
We use “Jane” as our booking page, so once you book a session there is a spot where you can plug in your credit card information, which is stored through Stripe. Please note: Our team has no access to your credit card details. Once your session is complete “Jane” bills your credit card and sends you a receipt. Bending Tree Counselling accepts E-Transfers to firstname.lastname@example.org or payment by Credit Card. If you decide to use e-transfer instead of credit card, payment is expected before the beginning of the session, and at the end of the session, we will send you a digital receipt for the session.

How does virtual counselling work?
We use Jane, a secure and encrypted online counselling platform. Some people are worried that virtual counselling is not as effective as in person counselling, and though there are some tactile therapeutic approaches that do not work virtually, our clients have found that virtual therapy is equally as effective, and even more accessible than services in person. If you have any questions or concerns about doing virtual sessions versus in person, please do not hesitate to reach out to us through the "Get In Touch" page. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
