Meagan Wachtel

Registered Psychotherapist

I earned my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from OISE at the University of Toronto. I now work as an RP with children, teens, couples and families. In my practice I follow the principles of Integrative Psychotherapy which uses therapy techniques from different approaches and develops treatments that fit the unique needs of each client. I am especially interested in working with young families in offering support and education for both children and parents. I have been working in private practice and organizations as an RP since 2012.

Questions & Concerns

Therapy is very individualized. Typically a person can begin to make positive changes in their life after just a few sessions. Together, we would determine a set of goals in which we work towards. The length of time in therapy is dependent on these personal goals and progress. In general, short term therapy (or brief counselling) is considered to be between 6-12 sessions. Long term therapy work is typically ongoing.

In Canada, any person with the capacity to consent (even under age 16) is able to consent for their own psychotherapy treatment. If a child is unable to consent for his or her self, parental consent is required. Regardless, it is often meaningful to have parents/guardians support a child's therapeutic work. As such, I encourage parents/guardians to attend the first session in order to participate in the consent process. Following consent, based on the child’s comfort, I will often ask the parents/guardians to step out of the room during the therapy sessions. This is to create safety and trust with each child and youth client. Parents/guardians are often invited back in at the end of sessions so that the child or youth may share what they did in session.
