Your First Session

Your first session can take anywhere between 50 - 80 minutes. During this session, you and your clinician will discuss your presenting concerns (i.e., why have you reached out for counselling services), your background (e.g., family, medical, social, etc.), gain a general understanding of what you seek from counselling, and identify how our services might support your process. You and your clinician will decide on how frequently you will meet (e.g., once or twice a week at 50 or 80 minutes), which can change as necessary.

Interested in scheduling your intake session? Click on a portrait below to find the clinician's biographies. Once there, click “Book a Session” to schedule an intake session with your preferred clinician. Select from the drop down the location you wish to book with your clinician, select 50 Minute Intake Session or 80 Minute Intake Session (for couples or those meeting with a student clinician) and follow the subsequent prompts to create an account. You will receive an automatic verification email once you schedule the intake session.

Service fees are covered by extended health programs if you are covered for psychotherapy, psychology, or social work (MSW / RSW). Please review your extended health policy to identify if you have coverage for a psychotherapist, psychologist, or social worker (RSW/MSW) and speak with your clinician about this during your first appointment.

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e. the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.

Court Campbell (he/him)

Student Clinician

About Court

I graduated from York University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology and am currently completing my Master’s degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Toronto (OISE Campus) in pursuit of gaining my registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).

Much of my previous clinical experience has involved working the frontlines in adult group homes, adolescent shelters, and alongside various at-risk youth demographics. Once upon a time, I myself was an at-risk youth in the shelter system, and without the support of those therapeutic services I relied on back when, my story may have taken a much different turn.

The therapeutic space is a cocoon requiring empathy, trust, and genuine compassion for change to ensue—this is the safe environment we will collaboratively create while I accompany you on your unique journey toward your personal goals.

That said, I operate from an eclectic approach to psychotherapy, emulating key components from such modalities as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Person-Centered, and Schema Therapies. Through the application of an anti-oppressive, strengths-focused lens, we will overcome challenges and strive toward mental healing and freedom.

Sean Middleton (he/him)

Student Clinician

Registered Social Worker

About Sean

Having graduated from Ryerson University’s Bachelor of Social Work in 2020, I am currently in the process of completing my Master’s of Social Work degree at the University of Toronto (Factor-Inwentash Campus). I am a Registered Social Worker (836822) with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW).

In support of individuals dealing with anxiety, dependencies on substance use and gaming, depression, sex and sexuality issues, and trauma, it is my hope that we will foster a warm, secure, and collaborative relationship that will promote compassion and awareness to the exploration of your thoughts, emotions, and ultimately - your whole self. Striving for an Anti-Oppressive practise informed by anti-colonialism, intersectional feminism, anti-racism, and harm reduction, I draw on interventions from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing (MI) while I continue to further develop my therapeutic modalities in my ongoing professional development.

Growing up in downtown Toronto, I have worked with LGBTQ2S+ people here and in the York region in both individual and group-based capacities. I have always had a sincere connection to the LGBTQ2S+ community and the Church-Wellesley village. It has been a privilege to grow up in such a diverse city and I hope to work with a similarly diverse group of individuals in their journeys of health, healing, and ease of wellbeing.

Shane Sweetapple (he/him)

Student Clinician

About Shane

I completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) degree at Royal Military College of Canada. After my career in the military, I chose to serve as a teacher and completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of New Brunswick. I have taught both elementary and secondary students and have been teaching at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute for the past 14 years.

I am a registered member of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) and working towards my registration with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am also a member of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) where I have served as a volunteer in a number of positions.

Growing up in rural Newfoundland, serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, and working as a teacher have provided me with opportunities to work and interact with a wide range of people, and I would like to continue doing so as a counsellor. I hope to specialize in couples and family counselling with a goal of helping families in developing skills to cope with their challenges. I am most interested in using the therapeutic approaches of Internal Family Systems and Schema Therapy in helping clients to improve their wellbeing.
