Nikolai Pavlov, RP
Here you can find a brief description of the services I provide and basic conditions like fee and time. I work only with adults but can refer to my colleagues who work with kids and adolescents.
Clients work one-on-one with a therapist in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviors, and present-day difficulties. Services are available in Russian and English online only. There is good evidence that online therapies can be as helpful as face-to-face therapies.
I'll send you Informed consent before the first appointment with detailed conditions for the service.
My fee is $150 per session for individual sessions (HST is included in my fee). A session is 50 minutes in length. Acceptable methods of payment are credit card and Interac e-transfer. A 3% processing fee applies for credit card payments.
Please note that 24 hours notice is required to cancel appointments without charge.
Psychotherapy is not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and with an extended coverage check with your insurance company.
For professionals, I offer individual and group case consultations in the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) model and Trauma-Focused Framework. My main goal is to help the specialists in discovering primarily their difficulties that contribute to getting stuck in therapy, as well as understanding the principles of therapy.
Techniques and protocols are secondary in my work. You can always be sure that respect, support, and understanding await you. Case Consultation is needed primarily to help identify the strengths of a specialist and be attentive to weaknesses. In my work, I practice a transdiagnostic approach, that is, focusing on universal vulnerability mechanisms that do not require a special language of specific models.
