Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is an option which allows clients to receive one-on-one treatment with a counsellor. Personal counselling provides a safe space where clients can delve into self-discovery, learn tools to overcome their struggles, and ultimately venture forth on the road to healing and recovery.

Relationship counselling can help couples, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, to understand the full dynamics of their relationship, how to interact with empathy, and ultimately strengthen their bond. Our counsellors don’t make right or wrong judgements, persuade, or tell clients what to do. Therapists provide a safe space where people can work to improve communication with their partners, and restore their loving relationship.

Sexual addiction negatively impacts the one struggling with addiction, but also affects loved ones. Intimate Partners may experience strong PTSD symptoms, which call for professional counselling to achieve effective healing and recovery from Partner Trauma. Most partners experience highly emotional reactions upon discovery, such as feelings of sadness, anger, and betrayal, and many struggle with feelings of shame or self-blame. This can prevent them from reaching out for the help they need for recovery and self-care, as they focus on carrying the burden of taking care of family while urging the sex addicted partner to seek the professional help they need. But it is important for partners to find a good support system to help them find healing.

With The Whitestone Clinic’s Medicard financing program, you can get the therapy you need without having to pay the full amount up-front.

We understand that sometimes you can’t wait for the therapy you need now. That’s why this program allows you to still receive care, all while being able to pay over time.

If the cost of your therapy is more than your budget or insurance provider allows for, this program is a viable option as payments don’t need to be made up-front. For example, if you have used up your allotted coverage for the year, this program carries over into a new calendar year, allowing you to claim it once your insurance plan starts fresh.
