We offer a variety of session types to suit your needs and preferences.

Sessions are paid by clinical hours – a clinical hour is equal to 50 minutes. The full fee is due at the time of the session unless clients have Green Shield or Pacific Blue Cross extended health benefits, or coverage through Veteran Affairs Canada. These clients are only responsible for paying the difference, if there is one, between the session fee and the amount covered by their third party provider.

Sessions

Information Session

We recognize it’s not easy finding the right psychologist. The Aegis approach is to offer a 20 minute information session which lets you meet with Dr. Cook and get comfortable with the experience.

This session is not mandatory – it is a service offered free of charge for you to try out a session with Dr. Cook.

Initial Interview

All new clients start with a one-hour initial interview. It is a way for Dr. Cook to become more familiar with your needs, and to make appropriate treatment recommendations.

You will have completed the online application, Dr. Cook will have agreed to see you as a client, and you will have filled in either the online or paper and pencil version of the registration form BEFORE this interview.

Initial Interview: $210 per hour

Ongoing Individual

Ongoing individual typically means one-on-one psychotherapy with Dr. Cook.  It is for current or returning clients who have already had their initial interview. These sessions are offered on a one-hour weekly, biweekly or less frequent basis.

One-on-One sessions: $210 per hour

Ongoing Couples

Ongoing couples means two partners attendind therapy together. It happens after each partner has had their initial interview, and Dr. Cook finds them both ready to begin couples counselling. The couple meets in one and a half hour, conjoint sessions, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday at 4:00 PM.

Couple therapy sessions: $315
