Dat Therapy emerges as a reliable anchor where you can find valuable knowledge and timely support for your mental well-being.

Introduction: Why Choose Dat Therapy?

Life is inherently colourful yet often intricate, presenting us with challenges that are not easily navigated. At times, these difficulties render us helpless, unsettled, and emotionally fragile. This is precisely when counselling and psychotherapy services come to the forefront, recognized for their effectiveness and necessity. Dat is a trustworthy team that can help you discover valuable insights, provide timely support, and endure joy while enhancing your mental well-being and reconnecting with yourself. Let us introduce why Dat Therapy is the perfect choice for you.

Dat Therapy 1
5 reasons why Dat Therapy is the perfect choice for you.

1/ Professional Certification from Canadian Counselling and Therapy Associations

Mental health care is highly regarded and emphasized in Canada. To practice as a therapist or clinical counsellor, besides professional expertise, experience, and equivalent qualifications, one must be certified and affiliated with relevant associations in the respective provinces or territories.

All clinical psychotherapists at Dat Therapy hold a Master's in Clinical Psychology. Moreover, to practice psychotherapy in Canada, therapists must be certified by relevant associations such as BCACC (British Columbia Association of Clinical Counselors) and CATA (Canadian Art Therapy Association) and possess related professional certifications based on applicable therapeutic models.

All clinical psychotherapists at Dat Therapy have master's degrees in Clinical Psychology.

Certain extended healthcare benefit providers in Canada only reimburse services delivered by professionals certified by these associations. Please check with your insurance provider for coverage details and professional certification requirements.

2/ Information Storage System, Video Calls Certified under PIPEDA

In addition to being professionally certified according to the regulations of associations in Canada, the personal information storage system and video calls must meet the PIPEDA standard (The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act).

The system for storing client information and video calls at Dat Therapy all meet PIPEDA standards.

As many know, ensuring information security is always the first and foremost principle in therapy and counselling sessions. What clients and therapists share and work on will not be disclosed to third parties (except in emergency cases). Therefore, Dat Therapy has chosen to utilize the JaneApp system, a platform built according to the PIPEDA standard.

Dat Therapy will have the following responsibilities:

  • Store and secure relevant personal information and be responsible for therapeutic and psychological counselling work.

  • Information will only be collected with the consent and permission of the client. Additionally, all clients will be informed about cases where therapists must breach information security rules and report to third parties.

  • Clients will be responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to therapists and should update information as soon as possible for their therapist.

  • Upon the client's request, they must be notified of the existence, use, and disclosure (if any) of their personal information and be granted access.

  • Anyone facing difficulties providing personal information according to the principles above, please get in touch with Dat Therapy via email:

3/ Dat Therapy Has Fast and Convenient Online Payment

The JaneApp system accepts payments through most bank cards such as Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, Debit Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, UnionPay, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.

If you live and work in Canada, you can choose the Jane Payments Terminal or transfer via Interac Debit.

After each session, the therapist will process payment and send an invoice to you via email. If you are reimbursed by a third party (insurance, support programs, company, etc.), you can submit these invoices for reimbursement. Dat Therapy does not directly work with extended healthcare benefit programs except CVAP (Crime Victim Assistance Program in BC), ICBC (Insurance Corporation of BC), and other related programs (WorkBC, WorkSafeBC, if applicable). Please inform Dat Therapy for further assistance.

The system will send you corresponding Intake Forms when scheduling appointments with therapists. Please complete these forms before making a meeting with your therapist/counsellor. This is the fastest and most efficient way to save a significant amount of time for therapists to gain an overview of the reasons, needs, and therapeutic models clients wish to experience.

4/ Dat Therapy Has The First Vietnamese-Speaking Art Therapist in Canada

Dat Therapy proudly introduces Mr. Vũ Minh Nhật (Christopher Vu), the first Vietnamese Art Therapist from the Canadian Art Therapy Association. With years of experience working with clients in Vietnam and Canada, Chris aims to accompany individuals in their therapeutic journey, fostering personal development through painting, colours, and various artistic materials. You can read more about Nhật here or about art therapy here.

Apart from being a Canadian Art Therapy Association member, Chris is also the first Vietnamese individual certified as a LENS Provider, offering Low Energy Neurofeedback Systems therapy, a treatment based on neurofeedback.

5/ Dat Therapy Has Diverse Therapy Models and Approaches*

Besides conventional counseling and communication-based therapy, our team has received training and certification in diverse therapeutic approaches, including Art Therapy, Couples and Family Therapy, Child Therapy, clinical work certification for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), EMDR Therapy, LENS/Neurofeedback**, and more. If you wish to experience these models, please contact Dat Therapy ( for further advice.

*Note that different therapists and some services will provide the mentioned services, which may be offered online (via video). In contrast, others may require in-person sessions for the whole experience.

**Services requiring in-person experience are available in Vancouver, Canada.
