Counselling is used to help manage stress, reduce anxiety, and can assist in setting goals for the future. In working together, a counsellor with RSW, MSW qualifications can help one to explore and identify emotions and patterns of thinking and bring a new perspective to the challenges experienced. Counselling can also assist in developing new ways of coping with the difficulties an individual is facing and help to find a new sense of satisfaction and fulfilment in life.
Many insurance plans will cover counselling through your extended health benefits, and some may require a physician’s referral. After your appointment, you will be issued a receipt that you can send directly to your insurance company to reimburse the cost.
