What does a typical session look like?
For your initial session, you are simply expected to show up online and you will be sent an online secure Jane App video link. In the initial session, we go over an intake assessment which is where your therapist will ask you some general health and personal history questions, and end the session with defining goals. From there, your therapist creates an individual treatment plan and sessions move forward accordingly.
What therapeutic approaches can I expect?
Lume Wellness Centres believes in using an integrated, holistic approach to counselling. We take a look at your psychological, spiritual and physiological wellbeing altogether and how this impact your mental health and desired goals. Depending on your treatment plan and goals, you can expect CBT, Somatic therapies, Existentialism, Gestalt and Humanistic approaches to be incorporated in your therapy journey.
How many sessions before I notice a difference?
Therapy is different for everyone, and often depends on goals, trauma, and much more. Research indicates that it takes an average of 20 sessions for significant changes, but for many it can take years of consistent therapy, and for those who have different goals it may only take a few sessions to feel and notice a difference.
Does my insurance cover therapy?

You will be sent an invoice after each session which you can then submit to your insurance provider to be reimbursed.
