Requesting Services

Please note that the Virginia I. Douglas Centre for Clinical Psychology is currently at capacity for this academic year and we are not able to accept new requests for services at this time. Please check back periodically for updates.

  1. Requests for service can be made by the individual. In the event that a request is made on behalf of another person, the individual obtaining services will be required to provide informed consent for services.
  2. Individuals should provide a daytime phone number and specify whether clinic personnel may leave a message at the phone number(s) provided.
  3. After receiving a request for service, the individual will be contacted by the Centre Director or one of our student therapists to perform a brief screening interview and determine whether the clinic’s resources are suited to the client’s request.
  4. Once the request for service has been made, potential clients will be placed on the waiting list. Occasionally, the waiting list reaches its limit and we suspend additional requests from prospective clients. In these cases, if services are urgently required, we are usually able to provide referrals or recommendations. When a client requires services that are not available in the Centre, a referral to an appropriate service is usually made.
  5. When services are available, potential clients will be contacted by of one our trainees to schedule an intake appointment. Please note that the wait time between initial contact and the first appointment can sometimes be lengthy, depending on the time of year and availability of therapists.
