Relationships are a large and meaningful part of our lives, and sometimes issues in a relationship can greatly benefit from the help of a professional. Couples may seek therapy when dealing with a particular event or life transition, a recurring conflict or point of tension, or when exploring how to navigate and strengthen their relationship more generally.
Various methods of psychotherapy can be used to help couples in therapy. Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT, or EFCT) is an example of a method a therapist may use when working with couples. Depending on the therapist and their approach, some couples counselling may involve couples seeing the therapist both individually and together.

Our therapists draw on a range of evidence-based methods and each specializes in certain approaches. Most commonly, these include: cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), emotion-focused therapy (EFT), mindfulness-based, trauma-focused, psychodynamic, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). We certainly do not expect clients going into therapy to understand how these approaches work, and we are happy to provide them with information on these and other methods.
Therapists operate out of their own location, provide sessions online, or by phone. We are continuously building out our network. Today, our therapists are across Toronto, Durham, Ottawa, Peel, York, Hamilton and Halton Regions. We also offer online video therapy to clients across Ontario.
Individual and Couples Therapy sessions are typically 50 minutes long. In some cases, your first session with the therapist will be a little longer.
Therapy can range from short-term to longer term depending on the client’s case and their goals. This can be discussed with your therapist, and the two of you can always collaboratively assess your timeline and progression.
Group Therapy sessions vary in length but typically range from 1.5 to 2 hours. Our current group programs typically last for 12 or 24 weeks.
Pricing through Layla is transparent. Your initial call and matching is always free. Therapy sessions are $130 per 50 min session for individuals, and $170 per 50 min session for couples counselling. Group therapy prices vary depending on the group.
Note: Our price for Individual psychotherapy services will be $150 per session effective October 1, 2021.
