Since 2013, Positive Circles has been providing professional counselling and mental health therapy to clients throughout the Greater Toronto Area. We pride ourselves on providing our clients the best possible care and value.
Reason 1. Insurance Coverage
Our work is under direct supervision of registered clinical psychologists. No matter which counsellor or therapist you see on our team, your sessions may be paid for by your health benefits insurance plan at work. This saves you and your family money out of your pocket and ensures you can get the best service from Positive Circles.
Reason 2. Fast Service Response
When you contact us, you need our help. We do everything in our power to respond within 48 hours so we can book your first appointment within 7 days.
Reason 3. Our Approach
Our honest, non-judgemental approach to counselling will ensure that each individual's worth, dignity and integrity is honoured and respected. Our reputation has been built on our commitment to focus on helping our clients experience a better and healthier quality of life.
Reason 4. Two Locations > North Toronto & Ajax-Pickering
Positive Circles has counselling offices near you. Whether you live or work in the former North York area of Toronto or in the Ajax-Pickering community, we are open for business and available to serve you.
Reason 5. We Help Set Clear Expectations
From the very first session, Positive Circles will discuss our processes so that you have a clear set of expectations for each session. We'll review our confidentiality policies, therapy procedures, health benefit coverage options and payment policies with you.
Reason 6. Qualified Experts
Our Masters Level Clinicians are respected in the area of psychotherapy, social work and professional counselling. Our therapists have been selected because of their expertise in a variety of presenting issues and a vast experience of therapeutic approaches. Since each of our clients are unique, we offer an informed and varied treatment approach, depending upon the issues to be resolved.
Our practice is supervised by a licensed Clinical Psychologist and Masters level Clinician.
Reason 7. Culturally Sensitive Solutions
Positive Circles takes into account the socio-economic, ethnic, faith and cultural backgrounds that directly affect why a client may need our support at any time. Our experience in working with ethnic minorities has equipped our team in assisting communities in overcoming the stigma and judgment associated with seeking counselling.
