Pricing & Policies

Be informed about the policies that apply to all clients and sessions.

Counselling Costs in Calgary

We Offer Flexible Billing!

Our fees are offered on a sliding scale. Prices for sessions vary depending on your income range and your individual circumstances, and allow you the opportunity to schedule sessions as often as you require without feeling limited by cost.  You may also opt to meet with 2 counsellors in a session, sometimes at no additional cost.

These details will be discussed with you clearly at your complimentary Coffee & Chat introductory meeting, which is a chance for you to meet us and learn more about our pricing & policies, with no obligation.  We prefer our Coffee & Chat meetings in person, to know you better, but currently also offer them by phone or online.

Please call our office at 587-318-0018 if you have any questions / concerns with the information on this page.

Administration

The Ever-Important Paperwork

  • Intake paperwork is typically completed prior to the first session. Paperwork is provided to you at the Coffee & Chat introductory meeting.
  • Our counsellors reserve the right to take 10-15 minutes at the beginning of the first session to review your intake paperwork, as needed.
  • In the event that paperwork is not filled out between the Coffee & Chat and the first session, you will be asked to take a few minutes prior to their session to complete it.

Billing

How We Handle Billing

  • Payments for sessions are taken 48 business hours prior to the scheduled session
  • Your invoice will be emailed to you after your session, so you may submit it to your insurance provider
  • We’re quite flexible in working with your insurance provider, since we offer a team-based approach and will list our certified counsellors, registered psychologists and social workers on your invoice.
