Your experience of AcuDestress begins with an individual intake visit of one hour, which is  covered by OHIP fully and approximately 90% by the Régie de l’assurance maladie de Québec.  After your intake appointment you decide whether to attend.

Our program coordinator,  Jane Vance (Ontario and Quebec  registrations) is at 613-319-6750.

Leave a message and Jane will return your call.

Jane’s e-mail is: 


Our staff can give current information on fees, arrangements for post-dated cheques, various methods of payment, program dates and availability which may not always be known to other personnel including the staff at OTN/SEOCHC.

Dr. Bailey only does clinical work, not bookings or provision of information  Please do not call or e-mail Dr. Bailey about fees. Call our office and you will be looked after.

Most of our individual appointments are now conducted over interactive television thanks to the Ontario Telemedicine Network OTN.) This is like Skype, but it is securely encrypted to ensure confidentiality. If you need more information, our staff will gladly talk to you about this. Please let Dr. Bailey determine if he needs to see you in person. A 45-60 minute intake psychotherapy appointment (covered 100% by OHIP and by le Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec.) is the initiating step to decide whether AcuDestress is for you.

From the information received at this appointment about how your particular situation may respond to our program, you’ll decide, on your own, afterwards, having thought it over, whether to attend or not. 

The entry criteria are having mental and/or emotional and/or physical symptoms of a longstanding stressful nature which are currently not responding to treatment. In other words - you are “stuck.”

Registering requires a firm commitment to attend all 16-18 program sessions (unless individually negotiated). All programs include a 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. session. Some (most) also include at 11:30-1:00 p.m.  version.  You may switch between sessions according to your availability on any given day.
