Are your services covered by extended health care plans?

Most extended health care benefit plans cover a portion of Clinical Counselling services; however, every plan is different, so it is important to check with your provider. Your insurance friendly receipt will include all information needed to be submitted by you, to your extended health care plan for reimbursement.

How long will counselling take?

The length of treatment depends on several factors, including your goals and the nature of the issues and concerns that you are wanting to address.  Counselling is an investment of your time and money; therefore, sessions will be scheduled at a frequency that fits your schedule and your finances, as well as for what is most appropriate for the work that we are engaged in.

What if my partner won’t go to couples counselling?

Sometimes only one partner is willing attend counselling. There are a variety of reasons the resistant partner may not want to attend counselling, such as fear of being vulnerable, thinking that therapy won’t be helpful, or that counselling means admitting there’s a problem. Regardless of the reason, the relationship challenges can still be approached in different ways, though working with one partner. Although both partners are responsible for creating distress in the relationship, working on yourself can be a powerful first step in reshaping the relationship. Any behaviours, feelings or attitudes you change can directly impact your relationship. 

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

Your counselling session is reserved exclusively for you. To change or cancel your appointment, please provide 2 business days (48 hours) notice, so that this time can then be used for another client. Full session fees will be charged for missed appointments or late cancellations. To cancel or reschedule please call or email during office hours Monday to Friday. Any cancellations for any Monday appointments must be made by 5PM on the Friday prior.

How much will it cost?

Laurie’s fees are available on request (250-532-7891). Fees are set according to guidelines recommended by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Laurie accepts payment by all major credit cards and by e-transfer.
