“I wanted to thank you for working with me and all the help you’ve given me over the years. It’s always a work in progress but I’m so happy to have had the tools you’ve given me to diffuse my mind when starts running down some not so great paths”.
“Jason has a diverse background as a counsellor to people from all walks of life, combined with his own considerable life experience that he can draw on to connect and make a real difference. He offers strategies that are effective in the real world and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Male Client / Early 50’s
“Thank you for another strong session yesterday. I just want you to know that after working with you and realizing how competent you are I have decided to stop seeing my own counsellor and seek for someone better equipped to counsel me.”
Female Client / Mid 30’s
“Jason is a great counsellor! Has been of great help to me. He hears to all you have to say and responds to you in a way which is straight and kind at the same time. Would definitely suggest to reach out to him if you are thinking of talking to someone.”
”…I am so very grateful for you and the work we’ve done together. Just finished transcribing our last session’s notes into my therapy journal and I really value having the collected notes of our sessions and that you’ve made that part of the process…”

Frequently Asked Questions
“how many sessions do i need?”
Answer: Length of Therapy is guided by the presenting problem, the mental and financial resources of the client, and in-therapy evaluations of progress. It is not uncommon to have life changing results after eight to twelve sessions. In some cases behaviour change can occur with as few as four sessions and in more complex cases, therapy can last several months.
The standard fee per counselling session is $135.00 and is payable at the start of the session unless specific alternatives have been arranged. There is no sliding scale consideration for intake or termination sessions. Regular sessions are sometimes given at reduced rates at the discretion of Lehmann Counselling Service. Payment can be made with e-transfer, credit card, personal cheque (Payable to: Jason Lehmann), or in cash. Receipts are issued at your request.
SKYPE / TELE-COUNSELLING
Skype counselling and telephone counselling are conducted in some cases. Payment for these sessions is made through interact email money transfer and is due at the conclusion of the session.
My cancellation policy is 24-hour notice either via email, text, or phone. Failure to cancel or failure to arrive for a booked appointment will result in a cancellation fee of $60.00 for the missed session or late cancelation
THERAPIST ILLNESS, CANCELLATION, OR VACATION
In the event of therapist illness, vacation, or cancellation you will be informed with reasonable notice and given mental health alternatives at that time.
My awareness of diversity issues is part of the ongoing self-reflexivity required for professional practice. Awareness of my own counter transference around diversity issues is in my mind an essential first step to working with any client. As a second step, requires positioning the client in the context of: Spirituality, immigrant status, culture, ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, education, sexual orientation, physical / mental or physical ability, and gender.
My process includes the following questions:
1. How does the individual in context affect the client’s access to systems, and how does that differ from my experience?
2. What social / cultural help or hindrances exist for the client as a result of their context?
3. What is the individual’s intra-psychic experience within their context(s)?
4. What is my familiarity, personal views, social responsibility, and competency within their context(s)?”
5. What language is offensive / “othering” to this client?
“what are the ethical standards and principles that guide Jason’s practice?”
Respect for the Dignity of All Persons and Peoples
Integrity in Relationships
Responsibility to Society
