What to Consider

Like any relationship, finding the right fit with your therapist is important. Some therapists offer a free initial consultation. Make sure to ask when you first call or email.

CAPT psychotherapists are trained to work with you on a variety of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, substance abuse, stress, problems in your relationships, family troubles and phobias. Our therapists may use one or a combination of several therapeutic approaches.

Below are some of the things you may want to consider when looking for a therapist.

Location and accessibility

Is the therapist’s office located near you? Does the therapist’s office meet your accessibility needs? Most therapy sessions take place at your therapist’s office in person, though some therapists offer virtual or phone sessions.


Is the therapist accepting new clients? Does the therapist offer appointments at times that are convenient for you?

Other preferences

Do you want your therapist to speak a certain language? Would you prefer a male or female therapist?

Insurance coverage

Many insurance plans cover the cost of psychodynamic therapy. Call your insurance company to ask if you are covered for psychotherapy delivered by a psychotherapist. If you have a healthcare spending account, check to see if you can use it to pay for psychodynamic therapy.

Psychodynamic therapists practice across Canada. You can search our directory of therapists by name, location, topic or keyword to find a therapist that suits your needs.
