Counselling fees differ depending on services accessed as per BC Association of Clinical Counsellors Fee Recommendations:
EMDR/IFS Treatment: $150/55 mins. or $180/75 mins.
Couples Counselling: $180/55 mins. or $210/75 mins.
Note: While I offer one hour sessions for EMDR and Internal Family Systems therapy, I do recommend 75 minute sessions. In my experience, clients are able to “drill down” and move through more material if we have longer treatment sessions. This can result in fewer sessions overall.
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.
Monday through Friday 10:00 am – 12:30 pm.
