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 will I know if it’s a good “fit’”?

Studies show that the fit between the client and counsellor is very important for therapy to be successful. Finding a therapist or counselor with whom you feel understood and comfortable is one of the best choices you can make for yourself. This is the reason why Laurie offers a free, no obligation 15-minute consultation to determine your comfort level.  

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 appointment time is reserved specially for you.  Please allow 24 hours notice to change or cancel your appointment, session fees will be charged for missed appointment or late cancellations.

How much will it cost?

Laurie’s fees are available on request (250.590.1482). Fees are set according to guidelines recommended by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Laurie accepts payment by all major credit cards.
