Advantages and benefits of meeting by phone:

Phone sessions are just as effective as in person, in-office face-to-face sessions. Traditionally counselling was set up with the client lying on a couch and the counsellor sitting behind and out of site – basically the same as talking on the phone.  This gave the client a safe space and allowed them to fully focus during the session and provided a sense of security and calm.

Many clients I have worked with over the years say they prefer phone sessions and find them to be a powerful and efficient way to work with no difference to in-office sessions.  Many have said phone sessions are even more effective than in-person sessions due to the increased focus and increased ability to concentrate.

Other reasons clients like or prefer phone sessions:

Easy to book sessions on short notice
Convenient
You choose the location for your session
Less distractions
Optimal privacy
Zero commute saves you time and money
Bad weather doesn’t stop you from having your session
Enjoy the flexibility of booking evening and weekend sessions
Easily have sessions during business trips or while on the road

Fees:

$95 for 1-hour sessions flat rate and there is no added GST or HST.

I accept payment by e-transfer usually at the time of booking or prior to the session.

Your counselling sessions may be partly or fully covered by Pacific Blue Cross, Sun Life, Green Shield Canada, Great West Life or Equitable Life, depending on the coverage policy of your employer. Prior to booking your first session, please phone your insurance provider to ask if your insurance policy covers Registered Clinical Counsellors.

Cancellations:

Appointments cancelled by email with minimum 24 hours notice receive a full refund.  For cancellations with less than 24 hours, the full fee applies.  Thank you for your understanding.
