By offering clear, transparent rates, we hope to build trust with our clients.
Fees for counselling services follow the Recommended Fees Schedule of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors:
- Individual therapy (50 – 60 minute session): $135 – $160 plus GST
- Couples/Family therapy (50 – 60 minutes): $150 – 175 plus GST
Some of our counsellors offer sliding scale rates. Please discuss this with your counsellor or our Clinical Director if you have questions.
Insurance Coverage and Claims
Counselling is not covered by the BC provincial health plan but you might have partial or full coverage from your employer’s extended insurance plan for counselling by a “Registered Clinical Counsellor” (RCC) or a “Certified Canadian Counsellor” (CCC) of your choice.
None of the insurance plans currently offer direct billing for counselling. This means a person has to pay the counselling fee up front and claim for reimbursement from their insurance provider.
As with many professional services, 24 hours notice is required before cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. If less than 24 hours is provided, you can be charged for the full cost of the appointment.
