How much do Counselling sessions cost?

Do you accept health insurance?

As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC#13309) my services are covered by a number of extended health benefit plans. Please consult with your service provider to determine the type of coverage you have. Clients are responsible for paying for sessions and then submitting their claim to their insurance provider. On request, a receipt will be provided for you to submit for reimbursement.

Where are you located?

We are conveniently located at 214-525 Seymour Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 3H6. The office is in the Seymour Building. It’s easily accessible by bus and Skytrain. Street and paid parking can be found nearby.

How many sessions will I need?

The length of counselling can vary significantly from person to person. Usually, the first 2-4 sessions will be spent getting to know one another, building trust, and establishing goals for the things you hope to accomplish in therapy. While individuals looking to work on a specific issue may only require a limited number of sessions, it usually takes a minimum of 6 months of therapy for long-standing change to occur.

Are there any risks to counselling?

While counselling can be an excellent source of support it’s normal to experience stronger than usual emotions when exploring difficult topics and trying out new behaviours. If you feel uncomfortable with the interventions I suggest or with the pace, know that we can adjust things as needed.

What are your client appointment hours?

We're available to see clients Monday through Thursday from 11 am to 6 pm. Please note that we only offer in-person appointments on Tuesdays.
