Am I eligible?

Hard Feelings supports a community of professional counsellors who work within our model of low-cost, short-term counselling. We do this to increase access to mental health supports for folks who face financial barriers to getting the support they need.

Low-cost counselling through Hard Feelings is not for everyone. We are not a crisis service, and counselling is not free, it is low-cost. It is also time limited, to a maximum of 12 sessions, with 3 boosters. Currently, all counselling is online.

If you have been a client through Hard Feelings previously, you can come back for 12 sessions with a new counsellor after one year has passed since your last session.

 

Those who are eligible for support through Hard Feelings:

  • Have $1500 or less in benefits to spend on counselling
  • Identify as economically vulnerable and/or facing financial barriers to accessing mental health supports
  • Are residents of Ontario
  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Are able to afford at least $70 per session of counselling
