How we work with therapists

Our goal is to allow for renewed prioritization of real, genuine client care. We are creating a curated community of private practitioners in Ontario to support our clients

Focus more on providing therapy

Unlike listing services, let Layla bring you engaged clients so you can focus on therapy and professional development. We take care of marketing, the initial information gathering and matching call with the client (offered for free), book the first session, and handle ongoing billing. We also offer our clients a secure e-counseling platform as an option to reach you.

Clients that fit your practice

We take time to understand your practice. We also take time to understand the client’s challenges, goals, therapist preferences, and logistical limitations. Layla's coordinators know both sides of the therapy equation. Better fit means increased client retention and improved therapy outcomes.

No minimum commitments

You retain complete control of your schedule and practice and may always pass on a client for clinical fit or workload reasons. We tailor our collaboration to suit your private practice.

There are no monthly or referral fees. We contract you directly on a fee for service basis for each client that you accept.

A new model and community

Be part of a new model to simplify clients access to therapy. We work with compassionate and competent therapists committed to achieving better outcomes for their clients. All our therapists are experienced in their focus areas and are licensed mental health providers in Ontario.
