Counselling fees differ depending on services accessed, but range between $120-$170 per session (couples and some individual sessions are 80 minutes).
Please call with questions regarding rates, or we can discuss at our first appointment. I will work with clients to explore payment options, which may include insurance (extended health), employee assistance programs, Crime Victims Assistance or First Nations Health Authority funding. In extenuating circumstances, I will also consider a sliding scale.
One hour sessions: $120
EMDR Extended sessions: $170/80 minutes
Couples sessions: $120/50 minutes or $170/ 80 minutes. (Studies show that extended sessions can
be more effective and efficient, resulting in fewer appointments.)
Cash, cheque, or e-transfer.
Many people have access to extended health insurance plans through their employers, some of which cover counselling fees. You may be able to use these benefits to cover all or part of the costs of counselling.
First you will need to check with your particular insurance company and group plan to ensure exactly what type and amount of coverage you have. The plans differ dramatically from one to another so that even within a specific insurance company there will be many different types of coverage.
Please ensure that your coverage provides for counselling services provided by a Certified Canadian Counsellor. If you have this type of coverage you simply need to provide the receipt that you get from Touchstone Counselling to your insurance company and they will reimburse you at the rate outlined in your plan.
