$110 per 50-minute counselling session


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. The only acception is for psychologists. All our counsellors have a Master's degree and therefore, do not qualify for direct billing. 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 health 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. If Walmsley is your EFAP provider, please contact them directly for prior approval before booking an appointment with Validity Counselling.


Cash, cheque, credit cards, and e-transfers are accepted for payment.


You must notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you wish to cancel your counselling appointment. Otherwise, you may be required to pay the full cost of the session.

We only offer a reduced fee when we have practicum students.
