At Words of Hope Counselling Services, we understand that accessing mental health care can be difficult, especially when cost is a concern. That’s why we strive to offer affordable fees while also ensuring that our services are of the highest quality. When setting our fees, we consider factors such as the cost of living, education, experience, and service quality.

We believe that our clients deserve the best possible care, which is why our counsellors undergo regular training to stay up-to-date with the latest research and best practices in the field of mental health. Our ultimate goal is to make a positive impact on the mental health of our community, and we are committed to achieving that through accessible and affordable mental health services.

Barrie Counselling Fees

Per 60 Minute Session:
– $180-$190 Individual
– $240 Couples or Family

At our counselling services, we aim to provide a smooth and hassle-free payment process for our clients. Payment is due at the time of service, and we accept debit payments in person and credit payments for phone and virtual sessions. We understand the importance of maintaining confidentiality, so we issue receipts for each payment with the Counsellor’s College Registration number. We recommend that clients keep these receipts for income tax purposes.

We also understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, and clients may need to cancel or reschedule their appointment. In such cases, we request that clients provide at least 48 hours’ notice by contacting the office via email or voicemail. This allows us to offer the appointment slot to another client who may be waiting for it. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Group Health Benefits

If you are seeking counselling services, you may be able to use your group health benefits to cover the costs. Many companies and agencies offer work benefit plans that include coverage for mental health services. To see if you are eligible, we encourage you to refer to your company or agency’s work benefit plan. By taking advantage of your group health benefits, you can receive quality mental health care without worrying about the financial burden.

Our counselling services are committed to making mental health care accessible and affordable, and we are happy to assist you in navigating your work benefit plan to determine your eligibility.

Did you know:

Starting September 26, 2012, Registered Social Workers (RSWs) are now recognized as authorized “medical practitioners,” which means that their counselling services can be claimed as a medical expense tax deduction when you file your income tax return. This is great news for those seeking mental health services, as it can help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with counselling.

This change reflects the growing recognition of the importance of mental health and the need for accessible mental health care. Our counselling services are proud to have qualified and experienced RSWs on staff, and we are committed to making quality mental health care accessible to everyone.
