Can I see any therapist from Divan bleu
No. Only some of our team members offer this reduced rate. When you have access to the “Student therapy” service on our booking system you will be able to see who they are.
Can I continue to see my therapist after my 10 discounted sessions?
Absolutely! However, it will be at their standard rate. They range from $100 to $120 depending on the therapist.
Does my student insurance cover the fees?
The receipts we offer fall under the category of naturopathy. Most student insurance programs do not include this. If you have private insurance which does include naturopathy though, it will likely cover the entirety of the session.
Do my 10 sessions renew every year?
Unfortunately not. As we are trying to give access to more students for this high demand service, we limit you to only 10 sessions for the duration of your studies.
I paid full price in the past, can I be reimbursed?
The student discount program is not retroactive and we therefore do not offer reimbursements or refunds. You can however still apply even if you have already started therapy at full price. Note that not all professionals are a part of the program and you may need to switch therapists to take advantage.
Relationship Therapist, Psychologist, Psychiatrist: What are the Differences?
In Canada, the psychologist is a health professional who holds a doctorate. The psychology practice consists of assessing psychological and mental functioning as well as identifying, recommending and implementing interventions and treatments to promote psychological health and restore the mental health of a human being interacting with their environment. Training in psychology does not require personal individual therapy.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor specialized psychiatry who diagnoses, treats and attempts to prevent mental illness, psychiatric problems and emotional disorders. Because he/she is a doctor, they can prescribe medication.
Relationship therapy is a support offered by a professional as part of therapeutic help. This therapy is based on recognized humanistic approaches and differences itself from psychotherapy by focusing on the personal development of the client (self-relationship) and in his/her relational competence (relation with others) rather than on interpretation and treatment of pathologies. All therapists in counseling have followed a long process of personal therapy during their training, and continue this process during their professional activity. They are regularly supervised on their work.
