How much does it cost?
There is an upfront cost of $100 that is required at the time you register for the program. $65 is a no show fee deposit that will be returned to you if you attend all weekly sessions or only miss one. $35 is for the workbook that you keep as a resource after the group ends. If the $100 cost is a financial hardship for participants, we offer coupons to reduce the cost.
Once you are registered for a group, you will be able to modify your booking up until two weeks prior to the group start date. After that time, you will not be able to change your booking and we will not refund the cost of the program.
When and where are the groups held?
How can I sign up?
Then, request a referral from your family physician. He or she will have you complete a screening questionnaire to determine if the group is suitable for you.
If you are eligible, your family physician will send in the referral and we will be in touch with you by email with the list if upcoming groups for you to choose from.
What do participants say?
"This course has been invaluable. I wish I could have learned these things earlier in life."
"It brought sunshine to the darkness. An oasis of companionship and sharing. Awakening and aha moments of triggers."
"I feel empowered that I direct my life, I have the power to control and change my thoughts, behaviours, and feelings, and I'm worth it to do so."
"Realization that I am not alone - everyone is going through something."
"Through the CBT Skills program I have learned simple approaches I can use to maintain more objectivity in situations where I could become anxious or overly emotional. I have more ways to remain calm and feel more in control over my moods/emotions."
