Counselling Rates and Hours

Counselling Hours

We have flexible counselling hours, with in person or online appointments available 7 days a week. We offer reasonable fees and flexible payment methods, with a strict confidentiality policy.

Book an appointment online or call 250-962-2415.

Counselling Sessions

If you are unsure about how often you would like to come in, we recommend starting with weekly or bi-weekly appointments, but it is possible to come less frequently.

It is not uncommon for a client to consult with a counsellor for one to four sessions, or engage in short-term work lasting 10-20 sessions. Clients who want to make more substantial gains in their personal growth, engage in longer term therapy.

Our sessions are 60 minutes or 90 minutes.

Appointments are arranged by calling 250-962-2415 or by booking an appointment online.
