Office hours are flexible to accommodate the availability and schedules of our clients whenever possible. Bow Valley Counselling & Mediation does normally not schedule appointments on Saturdays or Sundays.
Length of Sessions
Some sessions may go longer than an hour (e.g., 1.5-2 hours) by mutual agreement of the client(s) and the therapist. Fees would then reflect the length of these longer sessions.
$160 per hour
$220 per hour
Fees for counselling services are payable at the end of each session. Fees are covered by some Employee Assistance programs and health insurance policies and are also considered a tax deductible medical expense.
Your extended health insurance policy is a private contract between your company and yourself, not between your company and the mental health practitioner. Therefore, reimbursement is the sole responsibility of the client and cannot be guaranteed as it largely depends upon what your insurance policy is willing to cover based on what your company negotiated for its employees. It is the responsibility of the client to check with their benefit providers prior to scheduling an appointment to ensure counselling reimbursements will be covered.
