How do I book an online session?





Get Started

Is Hasu covered under my employer's group benefits?

Most benefit plans include coverage for counselling provided by social workers and psychotherapists. Prior to booking a session, you should inquire with your group benefits administrator if the service you are seeking will be covered. If they don't include psychotherapists ask that they do or ask your employer's HR department to add it to the company's benefit plan. Once your session has been completed, you will receive a receipt which will include the necessary information for you to submit for reimbursement through your employer's group benefits plan.

How much does it cost?

The cost for a one hour session is $95.00 (plus HST) for video or talk counselling on any device and Unlimited Text Therapy is $29.00 per week (plus HST). Please note that a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required to cancel or reschedule a video or phone online session without charges.

Is my Hasu therapist a certified professional?

Yes. Hasu providers are experienced healthcare professionals registered/licensed with their provincial regulatory body and thoroughly screened, including confirmation of a vulnerable persons police check.

Is Hasu private and secure?

Is Online Therapy Effective?

Numerous studies have demonstrated that online counselling is just as effective as face-to-face counselling and sometimes even more effective!

“Research suggests that patients report enhanced therapeutic alliance, increased self-disclosure, and decreased stigma with distance services when compared to face-to-face services.”

Mental Health Commission, 2014
