Rates, Payment & Insurance


$110* per 50-minute counselling session.

*In order to retain our staff of highly-skilled, Master's-level counsellors, our rates will be increasing to $120 per 50-minute session as of January 1, 2022.

We offer a reduced rate if you choose to see one of our practicum students.


Counselling may be covered by your health insurance policy or employee benefits plan. At present, all insurance companies require that you pay up front for counselling services and submit receipts for reimbursement.  Please check with your policy provider by asking the following questions:
   •    Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
   •    What qualifications of counsellor are covered?
   •    How many sessions does my insurance cover?
   •    What is the coverage amount per session?
   •    Do I need approval from my family physician?


Walmsley Counselling contracts with Validity Counselling to provide services to employees who have coverage under their Employee Family and Assistance Program (EFAP). If Walmsley is your EFAP provider, please contact them directly for prior approval before contacting Validity Counselling to book an appointment.
