The Forest Hill Centre for CBT is located in the heart of Forest Hill (439 Spadina Road, Suite 310). The office is accessible by public transit (walking distance from St. Clair West, or St. Clair subway station and St. Clair streetcar). Parking is available on the street and in a nearby parking lot.
Booking an Appointment
Professional referrals (e.g, family physician, psychiatrists) are accepted but not required – a person can self-refer to our assessment and treatment centre. An initial consultation can be booked by telephone (416-432-4587) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
OHIP and Insurance Coverage
Psychological services are not covered by OHIP, but are partially or fully covered by most extended health care plans if services are provided by registered psychologists. The psychologists at the Forest Hill Centre for CBT are registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
Fees are charged on an hourly basis in accordance with guidelines set by the Ontario Psychological Association. Payment is accepted by cheque or cash following each session. We provide a detailed invoice following each session which can be submitted to insurance companies for reimbursement (if applicable).
Cancelled or Missed Appointments
To get the most benefit from CBT, it is very important to attend regularly scheduled appointments. If you must change or cancel an appointment time that your psychologist has set aside for you, it is important that you notify your psychologist at least 48 hours in advance. Except under certain extenuating circumstances, you will be charged the full hourly rate for an appointment that is not cancelled 48 hours in advance.
Emergencies Experienced During Treatment
In case of emergency you should go to the emergency room of the closest hospital.
