About Oakwell


Oakwell Mental Health Services Inc. (Oakwell) is a not-for-profit mental health practice with the goal of providing accessible and affordable mental health services delivered by experienced, qualified, and regulated clinicians.

We’re committed to providing you with exceptional, compassionate and friendly mental health care. We believe in tailoring supports to every person's individual uniqueness. Whether services are short or longer term, therapy is always collaborative, goal-oriented and driven by clients' own hopes and needs. ​

Oakwell’s therapists provide counselling services to children, teens, adults, couples and families with in-person appointments available in St. Thomas & London and virtual services offered across Ontario and select Canadian provinces.

All of our clinicians hold a wealth of experience, are committed to positive client outcomes and have a minimum of a master's degree in a mental health related field. ​

Why our fees are lower than the average

At Oakwell, our primary focus is on providing the highest quality and transformative therapy in a client-focused and accessible manner. To us, this means operating with the utmost respect for client dollars and a commitment to social justice and equity.

To do this, Oakwell operates differently. Our approach is guided by our commitment as an incorporated not-for-profit, overseen by a dedicated, volunteer Board of Directors who ensure that our services remain accessible and sustainable. We refuse to inflate costs in order to cover unnecessary overhead or maximize profit. This creates barriers. We operate with a deep passion for our work and a dedication to serving our community. We do this work, because we love this work.

If you do not have private coverage or are experiencing financial hardship, some of our therapists also offer sliding scale rates. Even if you're accessing therapy at a reduced rate, we're committed to providing you with the same level of excellent service with experienced and qualified clinicians. Oakwell does not employ interns to provide these services. ​
