Consult a Psychologist in Gatineau

There are many reasons for seeking mental health services:

  • Personal issues (stress, anxiety, depression, self-confidence, etc.)
  • Relationship issues

  • Development/education/schooling issues
  • Difficult situations of life
  • Addiction
  • Etc.

Fortunately, there are several options available to you in the city of Gatineau.

Public sector

The government offers the public free psychotherapy sessions. It should be noted, however, that in the Gatineau area, the wait to see a psychologist through the public sector is very long. CLSCs prioritize mental health cases that require immediate help. Thus, most people in Gatineau who wish to receive help from a psychologist will have to wait several months, or even years.

Private psychologists in Gatineau

The good news is that if you consult through the private sector, you can get psychological support very quickly. Consulting through the private sector also gives you the advantage of trying different therapists and choosing the one that’s right for you.

Regarding pricing for a psychologist in Gatineau, the average rate per session is usually between $90 and $150. Pricing depends on several factors such as the psychologist’s experience, training and specialties. In addition to the psychologist’s fees, you will also need to consider transportation and parking costs, as well as travel time.

Consult an Online Psychologist

Technology is now making psychotherapy possible online. With a good Internet connection, you can consult a psychologist by video, audio or chat, directly from your desktop, cellphone or tablet.

Online therapy is an excellent option for individuals who wish to consult quickly, confidentially and securely, without having to worry about transportation in Gatineau. Demonstrated as an excellent alternative to traditional psychotherapy, online psychotherapy has many advantages.

With more than 13 years of clinical experience, she has invested the last two years in the online clinic which offers a versatile practice catering to a diverse clientele in age, cultural background, sexual orientation, and reasons for consultation. She uses an approach influenced by ethnopsychiatry, the differential approach and the systemic approach. Ethnopsychiatry considers that culture is fundamental to understanding and dealing with human difficulties. The differential approach gives importance to the path taken by everyone in their lives and takes into account the fact that everyone is different and unique (everyone understands and interprets reality from their own referents). Finally, the systemic approach addresses human problems taking into account how the systems (groups) in which people are immersed affect their life dynamics.
