Just as we all need access to healthcare, we believe counselling needs to be accessible to all. Help is of no use if it is out of reach.  Each and everyone of our clients are so important. For this reason we only accept a limited number of clients at a time. We work from a private office in central Nanaimo BC. Many insurance providers will also cover some of the costs of Counselling.

Insurance

Most extended health plans and employer insurance, offer some level of cover for Counselling Services. Each plan is different and it is therefore important to check your own plan. If you are covered, you can submit your receipts to your provider for reimbursement

A list of known extended health plans that provide cover for Counselling (stay tuned for a detailed list):

  • City Of Nanaimo Employees
  • Blue Cross
Referrals

For many people, including ourselves, deciding to see a counsellor can be quite daunting. This is especially the case when you are trying to choose a counsellor from an encyclopedia of Counsellors websites. For this reason, I have found that people feel a lot more at ease coming to a counsellor who has been recommended to them by someone they know. In support of removing the stigma attached to seeking help, I offer referral discounts to my existing clients. When we share our experiences with the world, we are inviting others to do the same.

Methods of payment

We accept cash, cheques, Visa, Mastercard and e-transfer. Payment is made at the end of each session. (Please let us know in advance if you plan to pay by credit card or e-transfer.)

Cancellation Policy

To best serve our clients, we put a considerable amount of work into preparing for appointments. In addition, appointments are often in short supply. Cancellations within 24 hours of your appointment time mean the space can not be filled by another client. For this reason 50% of the session fee will be charged for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. We  appreciate your understanding and look forward to serving you.
