What is the difference between a group class and a private class?
A group class is 10 hours long with approximately 14 participants and a facilitator. This learning environment is interactive and will provide opportunities to hear and share various experiences and perspectives.
A private class covers the same content as a group session, but it is 3 hours one-on-one with a facilitator. These 3 hours can be scheduled in one appointment or split into two 90-minute appointments. This learning environment will focus more on how the information is relevant to your personal experiences. Please note that subsidies are not available for private classes.
Private classes are ideal if you want to get started sooner than the next workshop, can’t attend the workshops due to work schedules or other personal commitments, or simply prefer a more private setting.
Do I need to bring anything to the class?
You will receive a participant booklet when you arrive. Please bring a pen.
We also provide coffee, tea, and water. If your class runs on a Saturday, you can bring lunch with you or go to a nearby shop or restaurant during a lunch break.
Do I get a certificate when I complete the class?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion after you have completed the entire course.
Can I bring my child with me?
You cannot bring your child as we don’t offer childcare, and our classes are intended for adults. However, you can attend the Nurturing Newborn Attachment class with your baby.
Are classes the same thing as group therapy?
No. Our classes and workshops are psycho-educational, meaning we focus on providing you with information and helpful tools. Group therapy is focused more on thoughts, feelings, and the healing process. See Strive and Healthy Relationships for information on our therapeutic groups.
Can I claim the class with my benefits or insurance plan?
No, because our workshops are educational and not equivalent to psychological therapy or counselling.
