Freedom Counselling offers a variety of therapy and counselling services tailored to your own situation. Both private and insurance rates are addressed in the paragraphs that follow. In addition to the many issues that our therapists have rigorous training in, we also offer:
Private Counselling Services Rates
All Freedom Counselling therapists are Registered Clinical Counsellors, a designation of the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. This designation means that our therapists have a minimum of a Master of Arts in a counselling-related field, have completed an intensive internship of at least 100 in-person hours of counselling, and adhere to a strict code of ethics. (For more on what it means to be a Registered Clinical Counsellor, view our page on mental health professionals in British Columbia here).
All Registered Clinical Counsellors are required to charge:
For individual therapy between $120 and $150 a session.
For couples / family therapy between $140 and $175 a session.
At Freedom Counselling, the cost of private counselling services falls between these parameters. Each counsellor charges a different amount based upon experience, and session packages are available which bring down the average cost of therapy.
Insurance Counselling Services Rates
Some of our clients come to Freedom Counselling with partial or full coverage of counselling covered by their insurance plans. Freedom Counselling works with a variety of partners such as ICBC, Morneau Shapell, Homewood Health, HumanaCare, Lifeworks, and Crime Victim Assistance.
Update to ICBC Subsidized Counselling: If you have been in a car accident and have reported a claim you are now automatically pre-approved for counselling. You can receive up to 12 counselling sessions within 12 weeks of your accident. Sessions are invoiced to ICBC directly. If it has been more than 12 weeks since the date of your accident you must obtain approval from your Claims Specialist before you can schedule any counselling sessions.
