Payment Options

Fees are due at the end of each session. We accept credit card, cash, or e-transfer. Sorry, we do not accept debit transactions.

Missed or Late Appointments

Your appointment time has been reserved especially for you, which prevents others from accessing services. Therefore, 48 hours cancellation notice is required or a no-show fee equivalent to the full session fee will be charged (except in the case of an emergency, such as illness).

Clients arriving more than 15 minutes late will be considered to have missed their appointment and a no-show fee equivalent to the full session fee will be charged (except in the case of an emergency).

Extended Health Care Benefits Plans

Many extended health benefits plans (e.g., Blue Cross, Sunlife, ManuLife, Great West Life, etc.) will reimburse you for the services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) or a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). All of our therapists are registered and/or certified. Check your plan's details to see if you are eligible. If your plan covers you for counselling or psychotherapy services, you will pay your therapist at Well Woman Counselling for the cost of your session and you can then submit your receipt to your extended heath care provider for reimbursement.
